Steelers | Changing blocking style

The Pittsburgh Steelers have decided to change their run-blocking scheme after running for only 75 yards in 31 attempts in the first two weeks of the season. As a result, the Steelers will shrink their playbook and use more outside zone running plays. Since C Maurkice Pouncey (knee) was injured in the season opener, offensive coordinator Todd Haley hasn't called a single zone blocking play. "We're going to use that a lot more," OT Marcus Gilbert said. "We barely used it in first two games. That will really help us out. Teams saw we were a gap, downhill team. Now, we can throw different stuff at them and change it up."
