Prepare yourself for a dose of the old-school in Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has noted multipletimes that play-caller Todd Haley has prominently featured two-back sets during offseason practices, using Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount in a thunder-and-lightning combination that offers more backfield versatility than Pittsburgh's enjoyed in years.
"He's a slasher, he can get upfield quick and he's fast," Blount said Thursday of Bell, per the Tribune-Review. "I think he runs a 4.4, 4.39 (in the 40). He can move. My style? I don't do too much dancing, I pretty much run the ball between the tackles and do what I can when I get an open field. We're two totally different running styles."
The Steelers also added an X-factor in rookie Dri Archer, "tagged internally as a miniature version of Jamaal Charles," per Breer. We don't expect the jitterbug to see many snaps on offense, but his mesmerizing return skills suggest an immediate impact on special teams.
