    Default Ground and Pound returns to Steelers offense

    With Ben going down to a severe and rare rib injury in the midst of his best season, the Steelers are going to rely heavily on the running game to get through for at least these next 5 games. Good thing Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman are up to the task. This is the kind of situation they work hard for and dream about as they prepare to face the 25th ranked running defense of the Ravens and the Cleveland Browns who are sandwiched between the Ravens games. As far as Leftwich goes, if Dennis Dixon can almost beat a stacked Ravens defense, Leftwich should certainly be able to beat a soft Ravens defense that is missing several players themselves. The biggest problems with Lefty is his long windup before his throws and the fact that he throws the 7 yard out route with as much smoke as one of his 60 yard ropes. Even so, the Steelers can and will win with Lord Byron under center. He has plenty of experience and is a solid leader and Haley will structure the gameplan to what Lefty does best. Have faith and let's kick some Ratbird ***.

    Ya got that right Steel. Seems to me, that the Steelers have ran this gauntlet before and turned in a 3-1.
    I think we split the Ravens and take the rest.

    Adversity agrees with the Steelers it seems. We'll definitely find out what kind of leadership there is among the players on the team. 3-1 over the next 4 games is my prediction.

    I see that Mendenhall is due to return. I also see where Haley has said that the offense will be changed to play to Leftwich's strengths instead of Letwich changing to the offensive schemes that Ben played with. Not sure that means Ground and Pound. We'll see and I'm going to hold you to that 3-1 Steelreign.
