    Take it as you see fit.
    Just like with Pittsburgh, and injuries to a very key player (Gronk for the Pats) can derail the SB run...

    For me the key to the Steelers having success depends on the O-line and Ben. It's about time we have some luck with that line staying healthy gaining continuity to be successful.
    In combination of the above adding a a good back and TE Eifert we could possibly see a difference as some feel our offense is weaker at this point. Probably the most important part of our offense is whether either Gilbert or Adams can man that LT position without any drop-off from starks at the minimum, anything above that would be icing on the cake.

    Gronk's been injured for 8 years?

    They've been running the 2 TE set with Gronk and Hernandez for 8 years?

    Lotta ifs, but I like some of the optimism. I will say the one I'm most skeptical about is our OL. As long as Gilbert and Adams are our bookends, there will be problems with this OL. But, I can see them being a great run blocking OL. And that could allow Dwyer to have a big big season. With that said, if the Steelers draft Bell, all bets are off. I think this kid could be rookie of the year.

    I hope we draft him, he could emerge as the feature back in our offense and be a great addition. Plus with that new rule for running backs his style of running may be just what the doctor ordered.
    You may be right Shawn about the tackles, but since Haley runs the dink and dunk they wouldn't have to hold their blocks as long you would think anyway.

    Btw, how would you guys like Le'veon Bell and Tavon Auston in this paticular offense? Problem is we probably couldn't get both, but I would settle for Bell no problem.

    No, but Brady, the alleged genius QB is 0 for his last 8.

    A little different without his camera's no?

    Instead of us trying to be New England (which is why we supposedly hired Haley) how about we worry about what our own team has done while not trying to be someone else?

    The game plan coming into that game was very 3-wide heavy. But when Manny Sanders got hurt early on and Antonio Brown didn't know more than one wideout position by the end of his rookie season, plans had to change.

    Nice story.

    But not accurate.
