As much as I want to see Ben throw for 4500 yards, I want us to get back to an efficient and productive running team.

Scoring quick is great....but methodical drives where you run at will on an opponent is far superior an option IMO.

At WR we have a superstar in AB. LM should be an adequate replacement for ES. Heath isn't getting any younger but still is a solid option.

I expect with Munchak and a little luck w injuries that this offensive line gels and becomes a solid group. Bell and Blount are very capable.

I see us as a very balanced offense in 2014. And that will be predicated by a strong running game.

Run Run Try to get 3rd and 14 and then punt is not the direction I would like for the offense.

I'm on board with this. Need some semblance of balance.

Run Run Pass Punt is not what I am hoping for....

I like 4-5 yards on first down running plays leaving 2nd down with solid options.

1st and 10 2 yard rushing gains don't excite me either.

Not much difference between that and....
Pass incomplete Pass drop then 3rd and long then punt... Do what works and will get you the most out of your matchup... If its run then run if its pass then pass.

To consistently get 4-5 yards on a first down run we need an above average OL. That is yet to be seen. There is no denying all the rules changes in the past few years have made passing easier though.

This is the NFL, not college football where a team like Alabama can "run at will" against its opponent. Parity is high, and the Steelers don't have elite personnel to run at will. The Steelers would be wise to modify their attack according to their opponent's defensive weakness. Adapt to the situation. No more beat your head against the wall, run at all costs, 'pawnd da rock' idiocy, please.
