Steel Thyselves

"We're going to run the ball," Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said last week, in response to a reporter's question about the game plan for tonight's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

"You mean you're going to try and run the ball," the reporter asked.

"No, we will run the ball," Arians responded, emphtically.

Well, that makes sense, if they can do it. Might as well try early and often, and may as well keep at it. After all, their "pass-first" approach in the two games against Bal'more last year didn't work out so well and, in fact, nearly got quarterback Ben Roethlisberger killed.

So, run the ball. Dammit.

Oh, by the way, Cincinnati stinks out loud. Still.
