In Week 5 the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offense was looking for consistency across the board. With the desire to get back to the running game, and a more balanced approach to their offense, running the football and not falling behind early were paramount.
When the Steelers wanted to run the football, they did so with one of their favorite formations, the two tight end set. Since Vance McDonald has returned to normal action, he and Jesse James have been used with great frequency. Without getting into the logistics of the formation, it gives the offense a tremendous amount of options.
