Tim Benz, Joe Rutter say gimmick offense won’t work for Steelers against Ravens
If you saw Mike Tomlin’s press conference Tuesday, you could tell.
Even he isn’t sold on the wildcat offense helping the Steelers dig themselves out of the 0-3 mess they created to begin 2019.
It worked Monday night to help beat the Cincinnati Bengals. But don’t expect to see a ton of it moving forward.
The Steelers head coach was upfront about why he implemented that offensive game plan versus Cincinnati. He thinks Mason Rudolph still needs protection from risk in the passing game.
So when do the training wheels come off for the second-year quarterback?
I get into that conversation with TribLive Steelers beat writer Joe Rutter in this podcast.
We also look at how the Steelers need to start gaining rushing yards organically. And we wonder why the team took so long to tap into the talents of Jaylen Samuels. Plus, Joe and I look at the Baltimore Ravens matchup this Sunday as well.
The defense did a great job pressuring Andy Dalton. That task becomes a lot tougher Sunday afternoon against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.
