    But we're too obsessed with the run game and time of possession. Not enough concern with scoring points.

    Dallas 50 yard line:

    Run run pass.

    Cincy 32 yard line:

    Run run pass.

    Steelers 46 yard line in the same game:

    WR screen run run run Ben scramble.

    Eight 1st and 2nd down plays on those three drives, the biggest two games of the year.

    7 runs, 1 pass.

    You can pay Charlie Batch $2 mil a year to do that.

    Yesterday up 31-13 the Pats D forced a turnover.

    Brady was throwing in the endzone.

    The Steelers would run the ball three times.

    Unfortunately, this is true. The few times that the defense actually set up the offense with good field position was wasted because the Steelers were playing Marty ball. There was no killer instinct, no desire to go for the jugular. It was always about time of possession over points.

    Only two teams in the NFL playoffs were in the top 5 in time of possession, Seattle and Houston. Both were eliminated on Sunday. Next season, the Steelers need to trade some possession time for points.

    A couple people on the O-line looked like they were playing blindfolded. Mike Adams in particular. Is he that stupid or was he being taught something that was foreign to him?

    Did I bring anything up about being a top 5 passing team, I am talking about the offensive line giving Ben protection. Im talking about a SOLID offensive line that can give Ben time when needed. Please, dont turn this thread into another Rooney bashing argument.

    Stay on topic. Or leave.

    You didn't but connsteel did below, and I quote:

    Adams-- Beachum-- Pouncey-- DeCastro-- Gilbert = Money if they can stay together and gel we will be in the top 5 in passing and rushing

    Then I responded, and I quote:

    Get this through your heads.

    The Steelers will NEVER, repeat NEVER, have a top 5 passing team.

    If you don't like the front office, then there are 31 other teams to choose from.

    I don't root for the front office. I don't pay money to watch Art Rooney II walk around in a suit.

    For as big a Ben Roethlisberger fan as you claim to be, you should be agreeing with me on this.

    The outdated way's of #7's bosses, hurt his play (and his team) more than defenses do.

    Example. Pay Attention. Start your own thread on plays the steelers run, this is about the offensive line, not playcalling.

    Ben crushes his own success by not getting rid of the ball quicker. then he gets hurt, sacked, int or something.
    But then again he makes those miraculous plays. but do you win 4 qtrs of football and a SB with a bunch of miraculous plays?


    Play action and move the chains..

    Lets be real... Pouncey was only above average this year... not even close to pro-bowl/all-pro caliber. He has the tools to be great, but 2012 season was not one of his best.
