    Might be a good way to ease Mendy back in the flow of things too.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    i was watching rainey's touches and some other highlights of him again, the thing i love most about him is there is virtually no wasted movement when he runs. So decisive and smooth

    one thing to think about, since the interior line has been upgraded so much the steelers should be able to do a lot of different things. When i was talking about getting a guard (no way i thought it would be decastro) i cited how the saints offense works. They have barely average tackles and stud guards, still good with grubbs but amazing with nicks and evans. That allowed them to really use sproles in an amazing way, but it also allowed them to attack the seam more than any other team with graham and colston. Would not surprise me to see more of that with improved interior blocking

    to camp onto that: Brees is all of 5'9'' and STILL has huge success passing down the seams!!! Thats because the interior pass pro makes rediculous passing lanes to reach the seams. With Ben showing a willingness to step up in the pocket (instead of breaking outside) in the first drive, i can see our offense having more success in the areas you mentioned!

    Ya Drew Brees is just barely 6'0", but your point is still valid haha.

    Chris Rainey, the next goal line back?

    Lol listed at 6'0 means he's 5'10 on a good day lol!!! T gets my point, even if he is 6' that's pretty short for an NFL qb esp one who is soooo successful!!!

    I agree!~
