Goal on Offense: To get the ball in "Big" Ben Roethlisberger's hands. Run the ball when they have the lead.

Strength on the Offense: Having an elite quarterback and two Super Bowl MVPs at wide receiver.

Weakness on Offense: Inconsistent play on the offensive line and no deep threat in the slot position.

Goal on Defense: Destroy the quarterback both mentally and physically. Dominate the opposing team's offense.

Strength on Defense: Hands down the best linebacking corps in the NFL.

Weakness on the Defense: Lack of speed at the corner position.

Offseason Methods: Plug in gaping holes but mainly build for two years in the future.

Rivals (Official): Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, and Baltimore Ravens

Rivals (Unofficial): New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, and San Diego Chargers

Best Moment From Last Season: Santonio Holmes' game winning catch in the Super Bowl.
