Steelers Connection: Is the Pittsburgh offense over hyped, or are they legitimate?

The Pittsburgh Steelers offense remains mostly unchanged from their 2015 version, but are they worth all the offseason hype?

If you've followed the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason, you've seen the hype machine the team's offense has become. People aren't just talking about whether or not this unit could be the best in franchise history, but the best in the league entering 2016.

Those are some hefty words being thrown around, albeit from everyone but the players themselves. Nonetheless, it begs the question: Is this offense worth the hype? Worth the accolades? Worth the recognition?

In the latest episode of the Steelers Connection I dive into this subject by looking back at the 2015 statistics, where they succeeded, where there are question marks and what it might all mean for the unit led by Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown this season.

Are there weaknesses, or just question marks? Will suspensions derail the season, or will another year of the injury bug ravishing the team ultimately what does them in?

All of this and more on the latest edition of the Steelers Connection, brought to you by VSporto. You can listen to all of the Steelers podcasts on the Steelers Vsporto page, but be sure to also follow them on Twitter (@RadioSteelers).
