Despite changes, Steelers' running game still in neutral

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney set the mandate a couple of weeks after watching his team get blown out at home by Cleveland in the opening round of the 2020 playoffs.

"Everybody in the building agrees you can't finish 32nd in the league in running and feel like you're going to have a successful season," Rooney said in late January.

Nearly every offensive decision the Steelers made during the offseason was aimed at fixing the problem. The offensive coordinator? Fired. The offensive line coach? Same. Their first four picks of the draft were used on a running back (Najee Harris), a tight end (Pat Freiermuth) and a pair of raw but talented linemen (Kendrick Green and Dan Moore Jr.).
