    I don't understand the humor then. Why is that funny? Why would the media and fans be happy if they use multiple tight ends and rush the ball more?

    The media and fans always know better then the coaches and players is how I take it. Sounds about right if you read posts here. This is not the first time Ben has busted on the media and fans. I find it funny everytime.

    It could have something to do with the constant demands from fans and media pieces stating that the Steelers need to run the ball more, because that is what the Steelers do. I just might not be getting it though.

I don't think that by using 2 tight ends it's making any fans happy. Most just want to win and have the team employ play calls that give us the best chance of winning, period. I don't think I fully understand what Ben is talking about.
    I kind of agree with Ben. In Pittsburgh it always comes down to running the ball, burning clock, keeping the game close (most weeks no matter the quality of opponent), and the defense being set up to be the star. This overall philosophy is part of the steelers 'brand'.

    I really think this town is happier with 10-6 defensive games with a 120 yard rusher than if we had a team with a stronger offense & weaker defense so we gave up 21 but hung 35 on teams.

    And the results are without equal:
