By Alex Kozora

Back in May, I wrote a disappointing headline to an article: Steelers Among Most Likely Offenses To Run On 2nd And Long.”

In it, I wrote that with Ben Roethlisberger under center, the Steelers would no longer be so counterproductive in those situations.

Through the first three games, that hasn’t happened.

Ben Baldwin of The Athletic compiled the data for teams who most frequently run on 2nd and long. The Steelers rank 6th in run rate.

------------------------------------------------

I've jokingly told some of my buddies that I think Fichtner's offense is built around 3rd and long, because that's where a lot of the 2nd down play calling puts them.

I do wish sometimes they'd get away from the run, run, pass formula. The offense has been decent and sometimes good a times this season, but IMO they have yet to be great. Sometimes they can be a bit predictable, I'd like to see them mix things up more often. Less obvious runs on 1st and 2nd Down, play action in situations where defenses are stacking the box and expecting the run.

Minor gripes because overall this is so, so much better than the offensive struggle bus we rode on last season with Rudolph and Hodges at the helm.

l'm glad the Steelers finely ran the sweeps they been motioning all season when they ran those off tackle run plays the other way to great success. that's going make opposing defenses stay discipline and not over pursue on those off tackle run plays. opposing defenses worried about being out flanked on the edges opens up the inside running game. imho all this really simplifies the running game.

Running game touched on in Bob Labriola's weekly.

Also of interest is what the late Bill Nunn thought of the trash can drill.

Good article. I like Labriola and what he had to say about Sarrett is spot on. He has really done a great job this year getting the line ready considering the injuries. As far as the trash can I could see fans cheering for our QBs as they drop one in if we were allowed to watch that is.

i gotta agree with this...last i checked receivers are usually MOVING targets and garbage cans are not.
plus their is no one defending a garbage can.
