We're 1-0, the defending champs and you'd think we're the Texans!

People,

Anyone can jump on here and criticize the O-Line for our abysmal rushing numbers in week 1 but come on man!  Tennessee did a helluva job stuffing our run game and I thought that Arians did a nice job going to the quick short passing game and Ben responded with big numbers and most importantly, another WIN.  There are going to be games when the run game just can't get going and like Tomlin said, early on, teams really focus on stopping the run at all costs and I am thankful that we have the personell to play well in other factets of the game i.e. passing, punting, kicking.  We are not a one dimensional offense anymore and we would be foolish to go 3 and out trying to establish the run on a night when it just wasn't going to click.  I get so SICK & TIRED of reading all the people on this web-site and around the NFL saying that the Steelers run game is deplorable and they should do this and do that, sign this guys, cut that guy, add this guy, waive that guy.  Can we please trust the organization that has won 2 Super Bowls in the last 4 years and let the men on our roster get into the 2009-2010 before we right them off for dead just because we couldn't run the ball against a pretty darn good defense?  FWP missed most of training camp, Essex is making his first run at being a full-time starter, give these guys some time to gel and I'll bet in no time we'll be watching FWP bust some long runs and rack up some yardage.  There is a reason there were only 2 100 yard rushers week 1 across the board in the NFL, it takes time to gel and FWP needs to get back into game mode after a long off-season and a training camp full of nagging injuries.  I for one have faith in this team and when push comes to shove, we'll be able to compete again for a run to Super Bowl #7.    Go Stillers!
