08:05 AM ET 08.16 | Ben Roethlisberger sees big numbers in his future. [Roethlisberger] said it with quiet confidence coupled with a matter-of-fact tone. "As good as we want to be, I guess," Roethlisberger said. Not since his rookie year of 2004 has Roethlisberger been surrounded by so many skill players. The Steelers' offense just might be, well, as good they want it to be. "It's going to be fun," offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said. "As long as we can stay healthy up front, I think we can be pretty salty offensively." Over the past four years under Arians, the Steelers have been good in the pass, but not the run (2009); or good in the run, but not the pass (2007). They have yet to put together a complete offensive season. That all could change this year.

After the first week of football this year and this is the best they can come up with... I'm sure there is a wealth of football news out there right now. Some people are getting lazy around here.

I know I am. It's the lazy hazy crazy days of summer. Can't wait for fall. The crackle of fallen leaves beneath my feet. The sweet sip of fresh-pressed cider. The kids back in school. And regular season football. None of this fourth-string-wannabe stuff.

Bruce Arians sucks.

Bloody hell, man. That was...beautiful.

Your sensitivity training at the office is indeed paying dividends.

The last time Roethlisberger got unchained he almost wound up handcuffed.
