I would also argue that Kemo was to blame for that pick six. He was thrown back like a rag doll right into Ben as he was throwing.
    Your splitting hairs. The point is that it was the turnovers that killed us. Period. Not anyone in the front office.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Puppets gotta eat.

    Maybe the Rooney's should worry about winning, instead of HOW they win.

    We're going to need some young guys stepping up (Hood, Brown, Brown, Worilds, the RB) and some old guys to keep on keeping on (Troy, Clark, Ike, Foote, Keisel) as well as some breaks (and some QB pressure, picking up some turn overs and what not.) I still think this year could go either way.

    If everything falls into place, it could be a good year, but there's a lot of ifs there, and typically they don't all work out, so that could mean another long season.

    And let's not forget injuries which are a complete wildcard.

    Don't confuse him with facts. You'll make his head explode.

    What were the Steelers ranked in rushing in 2008?

    What did he do that year? Oh that's right, he only went 88 yards in 2 minutes to win a Super Bowl.

    Ben was on an MVP type season before he was hurt last season, the run game sucked ***.

    The running game only became a consistent problem when Todd Haley showed up. Not hard to defend when everyone in the stadium knows what's coming based on the formation.

    You people would rather they keep running when they CAN'T RUN, than win throwing.

    BEN is what made our run game work. Not the other way around. We get leads with Ben throwing, THEN we run.

    Watch the damn games.

    Where's the fullback?

    http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-h.../Rainey-TD-run

    Fullback and 3 TEs on that play, and he was stuffed. Only his ability gave him that touchdown.

    See how easy the first video was compared to the second?

    That's what happens when teams have to play honest. When Paulson, Johnson, and Pope are on the field? They don't.

    Spread 'em out? We win 12 games.

    Vegas has the over/under for the Steelers at 9 wins. On ESPN First Take the entire panel picked the Steelers to go over if Ben stays healthy. It was interesting to see that the Ravens over/under is 8.
