The return of Ben Roethlisberger and the emergence of Juju Smith-Schuster and Eric Ebron is helping the Steelers stay afloat in the league. The promising displays from rookie Chase Claypool is also a positive sign for coach Mike Tomlin’s Steelers.

However, a certain NFL analyst reckons that the Steelers have a major ‘flaw’ in their well-oiled machine.

Former Seattle Seahawks player Michael Robinson made a keen observation on the latest segment of GMFB. He accurately pointed out that the Steelers’s lack of experience in the offensive department could come back and haunt them later this season.

“I think this Pittsburgh Steelers team may be the most complete team in all of football, right, you know, they can score with Ben Roethlisberger and all those weapons on the outside and then they can stop you from scoring with that defensive front seven.

“But I just look at the inexperience on the offensive side. Right. Not with Ben Roethlisberger, so to speak, not with the offensive line.

“But with the playmakers on the outside. Juju Smith Schuster is in his fourth year, he is the top dog. I mean, he has the most experience in the wide receiver room.

“So in big moments and playoff moments, what type of experience can they call on? Yeah, Eric Ebron has been in the league for seven years.

“So what experience is this team going to lean on when Ben Roethlisberger looks outside? Who can he trust? Big moments to me, that’s going to tell the tale of this Pittsburgh Steelers team,” Robinson concluded.

The Steelers will look to register another win when they play the Cowboys tomorrow. But can they sustain their good form in the latter half of the season? Time will tell.
