Steelers' offense could be 'explosive' in 2014

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

As the 2014 season approaches, the Steelers' offense could be dynamic enough to carry the team to success.

LeGarrette Blount has played for great offenses before. Just last year he was a part of the New England Patriots playoff team quarterbacked by the 'Steeler killer", Tom Brady, but Blount sees this 2014 Steelers offense as an equal and not a second class citizen.

So what makes the Steelers offense have such potential? Blount told Steelers.com that its all about finding the right dynamic, "It’s [the Steelers' offense] a power, downhill running game. You’ve got a quarterback that has won a couple of Super Bowls and is going to be one of the best to play this game. I like everything about it. It’s dynamic with Antonio Brown, with Dri Archer. It’s going to be good"

Good might be an understatement if this offensive unit stays healthy and works well together. As for as where the team, as an offense, has progressed so far, Blount sees the team as ahead of schedule.

"I feel like we will be exactly where we need to be, if not a little bit past it, when training camp comes. We have been working hard, putting in the time, expediting the process of learning the playbook for all of the new guys. We are going to be good."

This unit is making strides away from the mediocre 2013 season to possibly in the top echelon of NFL offenses in 2014, but with all the new faces and young blood being infused into the system, growing pains are to be expected.

Regardless, the offense has weapons that could give a defensive coordinator nightmares. A backfield of Blount, Le'Veon Bell and Dri Archer. Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, Heath Miller, Lance Moore and company locking down the receiving positions, and just when you think that rounds out the offense, you have a Pro Bowl quarterback in Ben Roethlisberger in the prime of his career.

"Oh yeah. It’s going to be an explosive offense." said Blount, and I couldn't agree more.
