My favorite run by Bettis was actually a screen pass for a TD vs the Cards in OT. I swear 2 or 3 DB's bounced off him on his way to the endzone... it looked like a man playing against children.
Another favorite Bettis moment was watching him push Sapp when he tried to run through our warm ups.

Actually, I don't know what the definition of "marquee" RB is, but if Pgh drafts Lacy, Bernard or Ball, I think they will be all good to go at RB. And Bell, out of MSU, could be interesting. He is a 250 lb bruiser who could be nabbed in the 4th round I think.

I know I'm in the minority here but I like our combination of Dwyer and Redman. I don't mind Dwyer as the starter and Redman spelling him after he runs a couple of plays. I go back to those 3 games in the middle of last season. Our offensive line had started to gel after playing some games together and Dwyer and Redman had become great weapons. Sure, neither of them will be a threat to take it to the house but neither was Bettis back in the day.
Redman is a great pass protector and a good receiver. He even posted a hundred yard receiving game last year. Dwyer has good feet for a guy his size and he has left his cleat marks on many defensive backs who tried to take him on alone. We don't have a quick guy who can take it to the outside or be a threat to take the screen pass to the house. We are lacking in that area but Dwyer and Redman aren't bad building blocks. Maybe adding a guy like Denard Robinson in the draft would give them the versatility that they are currently lacking.
I'm with Odi, we put together a great offensive line and Haley will seem like a Godsend, Ben will be an MVP candidate, the running game will open up the play action, and the receivers will be 10 times the threat they are today --- with or without Mike Wallace.
