no, we dont need to score 50 points to win. but you better well be able to pass the ball in this league if you want to win.
they point to denver and say "see, a great offense didnt win it"
but guess what, they were in the superbowl and probably a blown coverage away from reaching it 2 years in a row... while we were 8-8
yeah, we didnt win a title with wallace as our number 1. but we certainly got much farther with a loss in the SB with him compared to where we finished with AB being our #1 receiver.
sad to think more fans would be happy seeing a wishbone offense rather then 3 WR set as the base. even with a franchise QB at the helm

That isn't the case, though...

I miss the days of the strong defense and running game to win. I don't really care for this pass-happy, score 50 points league, but it is what it is.

Ask Seattle if strong defense and running game still works.

Ask the panthers or the chiefs if they wish their offense was better

Top 2 needs on the team are WR and Pass rush. The back end of the defense works itself out if you can generate sacks and pressures. Dont care if its OLBs, or DEs, or NTs....something needs to be done to fix the pass rush
Working on a 3 round mock right now, realistically i have the steelers choosing between barr and mosely, im leaning Barr. The putrid sack totals need to step it up

Defense might win championships but a good offense can get you to the dance.
I believe a better offensive team beat us in a few Superbowls: Cowboys and Packers. Kurt Warner also tried to prove that point to us.
