PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — Former Steeler and Pro Football Hall of Fame center Dermontti Dawson joined The Fan Morning Show to talk about this year’s Steelers team, and about an event that he’ll be hosting.
Dawson said that players will always have hopes of turning things around, but he pointed out that the Steelers simply don’t have the talent they once had on offense.
He’d love to see the Steelers go back to the old smashmouth, run-heavy style that they used to favor on offense, but he admits that this would be difficult for them to do, given the group of running backs they have to work with.
When it comes to the Steelers’ young offensive linemen, he said that their development is often tied into their level of maturity. He explained that while different players mature at different rates, it will take any guy some time to reach his full potential.
Dawson was promoting a National Finger Football League tournament, in Lexington, Ky. More information on the tournament can be found here.
