PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – 93-7 The Fan Steelers insider Ed Bouchette from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette checks in with Vinnie & Cook.

Ed offers up some theories on why the Steelers’ rushing game hasn’t been up to the standard, and he gives us the latest on running back Rashard Mendenhall’s potential return.

Ed explains why he’s not expecting James Harrison back on the field any time soon, updates the latest on Troy Polamalu, and tells whether the players have bought in to the new offense.

Ed also thinks the NFL is crossing its fingers about the replacement officials, and whether some of them may be susceptible to the gambling aspect of the game.

Ed Bouchette appears Tuesdays at 1 p.m. on the Vinnie & Cook Show.
