    We Need a Full Back!!

    Im tired of us running when we dont have a fullback in there! Today we could of used one really bad, going for it on that 3rd and 1 and couldnt get it running up the middle thats sad!! We need to either draft or sign one, hell use Will Johnson more just as a fullback!!! Were not fulling anyone when its a single back set and we run it, its getting old fast! But then if we have a fullback, we can still run out of a single back backfield then the D will be thinking they can pass or run, Green Bay does it!! What do you guys think??!!

    Cool
    How about any running backs. Most of these guys arent starters. Spindenfall is on his way out.
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    Agree i think in free agency or draft get a franchise RB, but we also need a Fullback too i think..

    You guys might not want to hear this but I'm going to say it. . .Mendenhall needs to be the starter for the following reasons:

    Speed - Dwyer and Redman have none
    Range - Have you noticed the Steelers NEVER run outside the tackle anymore?

    I know he might be a little fumble prone lately, but I still think he is their best option down the stretch.

    To stop the Steelers running game, simply blitz the A or B gap because they never run outside because they can't with Redman or Dwyer.

    Other thing is and I really noticed it yesterday is why are the RB's 8-9 yards in the backfield behind center? When they get the handoff, they are still 5 yards in the backfield and have to run 5 yards just to get back to the LOS.

    We Need a Full Back!!

    We need a consistent oline! We also need Mendy not sorry *** Redman, he's awful!

    Tomlin made his point, the most talented RB on the team needs to play.

    We're going to have to draft a RB , i don't see Mendy returning, Dwyer is a part time back same as Redman but as the o'line goes so goes our running backs.
    It's no fun when the rabbit has the gun

    if the Steelers had Adrian Peterson and still ran dive and counter all day without ever trying to run a toss, he wouldn't gain 80 yards either. The RB's are slow, and the o-line did not get any push yesterday - deadly combination.
