    I hear ya. I too would love to shore up that OT position. But the freakish rash of injuries that obliterated the entire O-line can't continually be focused on or counted on to continue. I'm looking for them to make another addition to the depth of the O-line. And if you go look at Bell's college tape, the guy is an ultimate beast....he faced 8 man, 9 man boxes and still succeeded. But the way that Ben moves the ball in the air, Bell won't see nearly as many safeties coming down in the box on him. Bell IS a top 10 running back provided the O-line stays somewhat intact.

    I'm praying to the football Gods that the OL stays healthy this year.....Bell is talented no doubt and really he seems like a great kid.....But he has to prove himself first but at least he will get the chance early on to do so.......The rest of the RB's on the roster are nothing special so its all on Bell to carry the running the running game......

    Trust me I want Bell to come out against the Titans like gang busters.......120 on the ground and 3 TDs would be amazing make the Steelers running game at least respectable and then make life easier for Ben going forward.....I just want Haley to call a solid game.....When you need to pass then pass but if there is game when running makes more since then just pound it but like I said the OL is the key......

    Thank you. Ben becomes lethal with a running game.

    True..looking at the titans, they didn't really address their poor run defense from last season. So we need to hammer them until the sun stops shinning. Then, hit them with the play action pass. And I see Bell having a coming out party in that game just as your saying..big numbers rushing and scoring TD's.

    It's not off the wall at all. If the O-line stays intact.
