Atlanta and Tennessee have been pretty good teams in the past few years, little offense was to be expected, atleast I think so...

Perhaps I was overly critical of the O line after the Tennessee game. They played pretty well in Tampa. Getting Starks back helped a lot.


No, you simply did not give Ten enough credit. The front D is two deep at most every position with very good NFL players. This is a very good defense.

Pouncey has stabilized that line. It was a great pick. If they can protect Batch, imagine what they can do for Ben. He already avoided tons of sack just because of his size and mobility. The Steelers offense could be dominant. We will see how it goes this week against a team that knows us.

By the way, I am not a Bruce Arians fan, but he called a very good game yesterday.


Not a Bruce fan either. Hopefully he learned from the myriad of blunders he made last year though.

And as much as I want to see Ben lead the offense, I worry about his return.

I'm starting to think that the Steelers more 'conservative' approach on offense without BB may have made them a better TEAM. Because we all know how Ben sometimes makes bad throws or tries to make a play and ends up hurting the team moreso (feast or famine).

It'll be interesting (to say the least) to see if the Steelers get better with BB, which, in theory, they absolutely should. But he may cost them a W or two and or make a few games closer than they need to be...
