    Then cleanup in the playoffs..

    Its Bens problem, noone elses.
    They tried that last year. Ben got hurt anyways, and it didn't get them to the playoffs.

    FYI, no one ever won anything playing scared football.

    they didn't play scared there was too large of a talent drop off when a starter got hurt you always need solid back up's .but the biggest reason we will win the north is because we have areal o-line coach with some cred not kugler who had peters fall in his lap jack bicknell jr has had success at every level of his career including Kansas city who led the league in rushing so you add bicknell to decastro ,pouncey adams, gilbert and foster or maybe golic jr and we will lead the league in rushing and ben will possibly get a3rd ring

    They played scared even when Ben was healthy. When you play and sport and you worry about getting hurt, guess what - you generally get hurt.

    Of course they also played scared in regards to time of possession. The Steelers never went for the jugular last year because they thought scoring "too quickly" was a bad thing. Possession time was more important than points. That may sound silly, but watching those games it sure felt like that was their mindset. Of course last year's playoffs were a slap in the face to that philosophy.

    And please, use periods next time. That post was hard to read.

    DeCastro, Adams, Gilbert are really still unknowns at the NFL level so lets hold off on leading the NFL in rushing talk......I'm excited about the potential of the but OL but that is all they are really at this moment is potential......Mike Golic Jr. has an uphill battle to make the team and I don't see him making the active roster this year unless he is just lights out during camp/pre-season.........

    Scared????

    Really??

    Ben needs to keep himself in all 16 games... Plus if he doesnt run around all day, the OL will stay healthy too.

    If you want Ben to run out of the pocket then have plays designed for him to do what he does best, with a called play for Ben to run at least the OL knows whats going on and their not falling all over themselves.
