    Wink Rick Gosselin on Steelers

    Pittsburgh won the Super Bowl and Carolina reached the NFC
    championship game a year ago. But both suffered a tragic off-season
    loss that has reduced them to mediocrity in the span of 11 months.

    They lost their identities.

    Both clubs were power running teams that won games by controlling the
    ball, the clock and thus the opposition. The style of football
    promoted ball security. The Steelers and Panthers weren't beating
    themselves with turnovers – and the opposition certainly wasn't going
    to defeat their top-5 defenses.

    But the Steelers lost their offensive power element in the off-season
    when running back Jerome Bettis retired, and the Panthers lost theirs
    when Stephen Davis became a salary-cap casualty. Forced to rely more
    on the pass and a finesse running game in 2006, both the Panthers and
    Steelers are scuffling along with 6-7 records.

    The Steelers have already committed 32 turnovers – nine more than all
    of last season. The Panthers have turned the ball over 25 times – one
    fewer than last season with still three games remaining.

    My advice to the Panthers and Steelers this off-season: Go find a
    power back in the draft. That's who these teams are. Go get your
    identity back. That will allow them to again compete for Super Bowls
    Peace & Yours in Black 'N Gold,

    Holy Cow!!! Somone who agrees with me!

    Everyone thinks I hate Willie when I really don't. I just don't like that style. I'm so use to seeing the Steelers rb's run people over that this year has been frustrating to me. I would love to see us get a great power back to split the load with Willie.
