    I wouldnt call him a #1 but I agree... I think Ben was looking for the deep ball early on and tried to make Sanders into a Wallace clone.

    Agreed 100%. It's also the primary reason for improvement along the offensive line, in my opinion.



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    What's frustrating is how long Ben and every fan in Stiller Nation has wanted to feature the no-huddle attack. Every time we've seen it in limited action, it's moved the ball incredibly efficiently. But only when faced with a 2-6 start did our coaches find the need to actually feature it more than every now and then. The fact that it works and Ben is really good at it has been known for a very long time. So, it's disappointing that in a league where many teams are playing to their own strengths, we were still trying to find a way to play like we did in 2005. Next season will tell a lot about what our coaching staff has or has not learned.

    I agree. I always said that Ben's penchant to look deep first was a major problem in his game. Once it became clear that Sanders was not a "Wallace clone" I think Ben embraced what Haley wanted. That's is why I strongly believe it may be more beneficial to take the top TE in the draft at #15 versus potentially the third best WR.

    I think adding a Jace Amaro or Austin Seferian-Jenkins would really make this offense more potent especially in the red zone.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I'm not a fan of taking any WR or TE in the 1st given how far our D has fallen. Miller has 2 or 3 years left and given how our O operates Spaeth is a good blocker and a decent #2 TE.
