Steel Curtain Rising’s analysis of the Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 roster continues with running backs.
Strengths: The Steelers have tried and largely failed “run the ball better” since 2009. This year they kept only the most consistent performer and brought in fresh faces.
Weaknesses: During training camp the press all but changed Le’Veon Bell’s name to Franco Jerome Harris Parker but he’s carried 4 times. In preseason. Other than Redman, there are a lot of question marks.
The Skinny: Steel Curtain Rising has long been an Issac Redman fan, but can Redman carry the load as a number 1 back for an extended period? While Le’Veon Bell is healing quickly is it really logical to pin so many hopes on a rookie? Art Rooney II may have been right when he said rushing provided the franchise with its foundation, but this year the foundation of the offense must likely come elsewhere.
