You know, if Bell was averaging 8-9 YPC instead of 5.4 or whatever....might make a big difference in the offense.

We don't have good balance/distribution right now. I'd agree Ben seems to "force" it to AB a bit too much - if he's got half a step in man Ben will try to thread the needle instead of looking for easier throws (if there are many).

I also think Ben has been content to dump-off to Bell, prematurely at times....the old "avoid the sack, stay ahead of the sticks" mantra.


I don't get hung-up on TD stats after just 6 games - not many guys get 1 every week or every other week....a guy with 10 TD's on the year probably gets those in 6 or 7 games. Hopefully an avalanche is coming from AB and Bell.

McDonald has the longest reception by a te on the team so far this season, though, right? More of that, please.

I think the lack of balance in this offense will sort itself out. Call me glass half full, but with all the new faces, missed games/camp/practice, I'm thinking confidence in guys other than AB will grow, and the ball will get spread out better as we go. Just a hunch from an optimist.

My perfect Steeler offense that COULD score 30 points a game is something like this:

Brown, 90 catches
Bell 65 catches
Bryant 60 catches
JuJu 60 catches
McDonald 50 catches

60 catches for everybody else (James,Grimble, Rogers, Hunter, Bey, Connor, Watson)


Would be great to see.

Gotta get the long ball workin. If they can do that everyone will have plenty of opportunities.
