Excellent breakdown of Steeler core offensive plays

Hey All,

One of my favorite football-related sites is Chris Brown's smartfootball.com.  If you like analyzing X's and O's, this site is for you.  Today he linked to a piece he posted in the N.Y. Times Fifth Down blog on the Steeler offense.  The link is at the bottom of this post.  I highly recommend it as he does a great job breaking down the Steelers counter run play (made famous by FWP's 75 yd TD vs. the Seahawks in SB40) and the Smash passing concept (immortalized by Ben-to-Santonio to win SB43).  There are video clips of both the Parker and Santonio plays in the link as well.  He also has some remarks about Bruce Arians I know many of you will find interesting.  Hope you enjoy...
