    They will be tougher than they were. They are (re)building with good D and a running game. The good news is that instead of giving more Colt weapons, they just went and got a new QB.

    You guys are ragging about the QB, but please remember the Steelers have a way of making rookie/inexperienced QBs look all-world. Plus, this scenario is similar to what we have been talking about for the Steelers O (and what the Ravens have already done), establish the threat of a run game and start making throws. It is working for Flacco, it can work for Weeden & Co. maybe I am just a worrywart, but few games last year were a gimmee.

    Not really...

    It happens a handful of times to any team...

    This is why guys like Scott Mitchell, Matt Cassell and, most egregiously, Matt Flynn made tons of money...

    Best I can recall, I think I recall hearing some ridiculous stat, like LeBeau has never been beaten by a rookie QB.

    LeBeau was beaten by a rookie QB once (Troy Smith) but I think it was a game in which we had already clinched our playoff berth and could not improve our seeding, so Ben sat out that in favor of Charlie Batch (or something like that).


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.
