QB Ben will get a lot of grief this year. It is simply not possible for him to repeat his success of last year. They have already indicated that they will open up the passing game, but I hope that they stick with running the ball 61% of the time. TEs Expect to see a lot more passes going to the TEs. Miller should have the starting job after the first few games. This should open up more running lanes as the threat of a pass catching TE will make teams pay for putting 8 men in the box. Kranchick is a LOAD, and even thought he is overshadowed buy Miller, I expect that he will make some big plays this year. RBs Staley has been a huge disappointment up to this point. When he can stay on the field, he is a monster, but he is much too fragile to carry the Steelers running game. Bettis has been relegated to the goal line back, and he is perfect in this capacity (too old and slow to carry the full load). Parker could be the future of the running game. He has speed, power, and most importantly vision. It has been a LONG time since the Steelers have had a RB with such big play potential! WRs Ward will retire as a Steeler, and that is GREAT news for all Steeler fans! He is a perfect fit for this team, and I expect that he will have another Pro Bowl season. There is a HUGE drop in talent after Ward. El is a competent #3 WR, but I dont think that he can replace Plax as the #2 guy. Wilson has not shown that he has the ability to spread the field. Quincy Morgan? I would be surprised! Now, look for Nate Washington to get on the field. If he can duplicate what he accomplished in preseason against starters, the Steelers have found their #2 WR! If not, defenses will be able to double ward without paying too much of a price. O-Line Pass protection is still suspect, but at least Ben is mobile ..LOL Run blocking, The strength of the team! They have less depth than last year, but more talent in the starting lineup. If they stay healthy, there is not a team in the NFL that will be able to stop the Steelers from running the ball (regardless who is carrying the ball). D-Line Simply the best in the NFL. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY is going to run on the Steelers this year. Hampton is locked up for a couple more years, and Im thrilled! LB Solid group. Porter should be back for game one. Farrior and Foote will have big years. Harrison is an emerging star, I just hope that he gets more time on the field. Dick is going to be using these guys a lot more this year, and expect them to get to the QB faster and more often. DB Townsend is a solid coverage guy. Willie Williams needs to retire! The Steelers have Ike and Coke, and they are both ready to start. I hope that one can take Willies spot after the first few games. S Troy just keeps getting better!
