Question Marks:

  • Offensive line - The offensive line in Pittsburgh may be a mess. It may come together and make the coaches and front office look like geniuses. The only sure thing is Maurkice Pouncey at center, while the team looks to replace Max Starks and Willie Colon this season.
  • Wide receiver - The loss of Mike Wallace, who signed with the Dolphins just after free agency started, will be felt. He was capable of taking the top off a defense, and he opened up a lot of options for Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers have talent on the team still, especially in Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, and rookie Markus Wheaton, who should develop nicely, but the loss of Wallace will still be felt.
