The Steelers offense hit new heights in 2014, breaking more than a few team records and becoming the very first team in NFL history to have a 4,500-yard passer ( Ben Roethlisberger, 4952 passing yards), a 1,500-yard receiver( Antonio Brown 1698 receiving yards) and a 1,300-yard rusher ( Le’Veon Bell 1361 yards rushing) in the same season.
As we are fast approaching the NFL season, there are even higher expectations for the Steelers offense for 2015.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger spoke about his expectations for 2015 earlier this off-season…
Ben Roethlisberger: “We can get better every day. We can improve on third downs, we can improve on red zones, and we can improve on first down. To us, we never want to settle. We always want to continue to improve and get better. Just because we had a bunch of individuals that did great last year and we as a unit played great, we still feel like we can get better.”
“I have seen some growth from young guys. Some of the veteran guys keep getting better. I am really excited about this team and hopefully as in every season health is always the key component.”
Wide receiver Antonio Brown had a monster season and was the NFL’s top player at his position. However,Brown is anything but satisfied heading into 2015…
Antonio Brown:“I think we can be as great as we want to be,we finished last year No. 2 in the league (in total offense). I think we can take a step and be the best overall.”
Running back Le’Veon Bell had a break-out season in 2014 with 1361 yards rushing , a 4.7 yard average and 8 rushing touchdowns. Bell was also a tremendous weapon receiving out of the backfield with a whopping 83 catches for 854 yards and 3 receiving touchdowns.
Bell has very high expectations for 2015 as he told ESPN earlier this off-seaon…
Le’Veon Bell: “The goal is the Super Bowl. We obviously know we have the team to do it. Hopefully everybody will stay healthy, no off-field incidents, and I think we’ll be on our way to the Super Bowl.”
The Steelers offense looks to be ready for big things in 2015.
Ben Roethlisberger is at the top of his game and may have the best offensive line he has seen during his career in front of him.
He has more offensive weapons than ever before and everyone seems to be on the same page.
Steeler Nation, with Roethlisberger,Bell and Brown, the Steelers have three elite players at three key positions of the offense. Expectations are high for 2015 and with the talent at hand the sky is the limit.
