Not only do I hope the offensive line manages to actually stay healthy for a change next season, I hope Bicknell brings a lot more to the table as a coach than Kugler and the email porn king did.

To be brutally truthful...
The key to this whole season is Bicknell's coaching and the conditioning of the O-line. If we have the same old O-line, then the season is already a wrap.
Everyone....and I mean everyone...needs to focus in on what is being done different with the O-line and what new conditioning techniques are the O-linemen doing to stay in better shape. No one is asking these questions of Tomlin and co. No one.
The Steeler way...is the only way.
No it isn't. It's play-calling. It's formations.
Get rid of the fullback.
Get rid of 2 TE sets.
Get rid of having the RB lined up almist 9 yards behind the LOS on 2nd and 3rd and short.
Five All Pro's on the line couldn't block when plays are tipped off based on formation and personnel.
Quicker passes and kill the play if needed. A little Ben ball is good when absolutely needed.
That should save the OL too.
I completely agree with the RB being like 9 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Drives me nuts........I don't study every one of our plays and sitting on the couch each Sunday I can figure out many of the plays.
I do feel good with our OL, WR and ST coaches are new. We needed that just to change things up.
I think we will have a good year but next year is when we turn it up again.
Batch was kept for 2 years too long, this team was way too nice to him!
