The Pittsburgh Steelers are known for their hard-hitting, stifling defense, but it could be their offense that makes the most noise this season. There are a lot of weapons ready for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and with new offensive coordinator Todd Haley in the mix, that could create for some interesting surprise scenarios.
Could the running game get a boost from a surprise rookie? Perhaps one of a few third-year receivers could experience the same success as several other third-year wideouts. Or, maybe a certain tight end who's been attached at the hip to Haley could make some noise.
With a top-notch quarterback in Roethlisberger and a proven offensive guru in Haley, there are many possibilities. Check out the video above, where AFC North lead blogger Andrea Hangst and I talk about some breakout candidates for the 2012 season.
