"SWOT analysis" of the 2010 Steelers (including strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and
threats) followed by the FootballLOCKS.com classic schedule analysis
and a record projection summary.
QB Ben Roethlisberger (play extending ability), ageless WR Hines Ward,
defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau,
linebacking core, OLB's LaMarr Woodley & James Harrison, ILB James Farrior,

Keep an eye on 6th round selection RB Jonathan Dwyer from Georgia Tech.
QB Ben Roethlisberger suspension,
departure of WR Santonio Holmes,
loss of RT Willie Colon for the season.
