Steelers’ TD Formula: Ben to Bryant
This week the NFL’s Bucky Brooks posted an article about several “up and coming” quarterback wide receiver tandems.
The Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger and Martavis Bryant made the list. Bryant’s emergence in the offense in 2014 gave the Steelers the spark that they were looking for. Leading the league in yards per catch and notching five receptions of forty yards or more, Bryant showed the ability to take the top off of the defense.
Eight touchdowns told NFL defenses to be on alert in 2015. Ben’s penchant to go deep and Bryant’s size and speed are a great combination.
As Bryant develops some of his more nuanced receiving skills behind All Pro Antonio Brown, he should only become a bigger threat. It will be fun to watch Bryant push for more time in 2015–unbelievably, Bryant only hauled in 26 passes in 2014.
In the meantime, crack a beer, put some burgers on the grill, and God Bless America! Happy Fourth!
