Re: Is anybody else sort of worried about Pittsburgh's running game?
The thing to worry about with Pittsburgh is the balanced attack they have. Their running game is very, very good...but equally as good this year is their passing attack. Roethlisberger looks light-years better at managing the offense and avoiding mistakes this year. He is much more composed in the pocket and, when things break down, is still a threat to move and difficult to bring down for the sack.
Watching their game against San Diego last night was revealing, especially in the 4th quarter. The Chargers scored to take their first lead in the game, and the Steelers responded instantaneously with a three-play drive that featured three good tosses by Roethlisberger to take the lead back. This is a team that can grind you out, sit on the football, and control the clock...but this is also a team that can strike quickly with two very good wideouts (Ward and Randall El) and a developing threat at Tight End.
