How do the Steelers improve the Running Game?
The Steelers running game has been abysmal, to say the least. They definitely are going to need to see some more from those guys if we want to be going anywhere. Ben Roethlisberger dropping back and throwing around 50 times a game just isn't Steelers Football.
Steelers Football in my opinion is a run-first offense that is effective. Thus far, the Steelers running attack has been a fail. Just not up to standard at all. We need to do some soul searching if we are able to be effective in the run-game. Do we need to move people around? Draw up some different plays? Not sure. In my opinion, we need to get back to our roots and just hit the hole and get some positive yards.
Having James Conner back is huge. He's definitely a pretty dynamic back who has had some ups in downs this season. However, when he is rolling, the Steelers offense is rolling too.
Also, Maurkice Pouncey is going to be back in the lineup hopefully for Sunday. These guys will hopefully contribute to an improved running-game. We all apperciate the efforts of Benny Snell, however, we need an improvement for sure. It's not his fault, it's the unit as a whole.
