I guarantee Adams has better hands than I. Taylor!
If (and I don't think it's happened yet) we were up big in a game in the 4th Quarter, I'd love to see a pass thrown Mike Adams' way. He'd be a load to bring down.

Huge thanks to AA for all the help with the signature.
2nd place in our division! Unbelievable!!!
Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.
I wouldn't say turn it around but getting better & playing with some heart again. Arrow is pointing up! Just keep it in perspective...One loss could change everything.
The reason on O that we are getting better isn't benching Adams or just Bell's emergence. Adams still plays significant snaps & playing well. Hopefully this continues because he will push again. Stability & chemistry on the OL with log snaps is what the difference is. With Decastro emerging & Velasco settling in the interior is looking solid...Need Foster back though. Bell has given us balance in the passing game & is looking the part.
The one thing that still concerns me is they need to find their identity on offense. Let me rephrase...Haley needs to conform to the identity that is emerging. Perhaps Haley should be given credit for it "emerging" but my gut tells me <cough> someone took or asked for the reigns & that is why it has emerged. Since I don't know what conversations took place I won't bash or credit Haley. Maybe BB asked & Haley said go with it. Maybe Haley directed BB to go with it. I don't hear any grumbling & Haley seems to be firey & pumped with his players. What I will do is observe what happens going forward. If the offense continues to look like what we saw against Detroit & it grows from there...I will credit Haley & BB. If the brakes lock up...I know what is going on.

This little hot streak really magnifies some of the early losses. If the Steelers won any of those very winnable early games - Titans, Raiders, Vikings, take your pick - they would be .500 and in a good position for the wild card. With those early losses, there is almost no room for error.
