And it's not like they won the Championship with a stout run game last year. IIRC, all season long we heard about how they couldn't win with such a poor O-line & rushing attack. As long as their D comes along and gets back into #1 form they will be able to "legitimately defend their title this year."

Don't be so sure. Last year their running game wasn't exactly stellar (24th) but the team had the ability to score points (11th in rushing TDs). Their running game somehow looks worse.

The offensive line has never been terrible, it's a middle of the road line, and what could be called "good enough" as has been said by Roethlisberger more than once, if he didn't hold on to the ball so long waiting for plays to develop there'd be a lot less sacks the line took the blame for.

The Steelers are a great team, don't get me wrong and I think they're one of the few teams likely to be fighting for it all at the end of the year, but their lack of balance, means teams can be come one dimensional against them. While there's one year where this was overcome, there's an entire football history that says being able to run the ball is tantamount to success.
