Until you fix the offensive line, you don't fix the Steelers
This year is going to be painful to watch people. It already is. This unit is full of players who shouldn't be starters in the NFL. They are overmatched every week, not working well together, and just generally look beyond terrible in nearly every circumstance.
Ben is not going to make it this season with this group. There's just no way you can see him surviving no matter how you look at it. If we've said it once, we've said it 100 times, you ignore the offensive line year after year and things are going to go south.
You get Pouncey, that's fine. You get Gilbert, maybe he's going to be good in the future. It's not enough. You just can't let things go as is by bringing in has been's and never will be's every year and expect them to perform. The Steelers won inspite of the line in SB XL, they won inspite of it in XLIII. So now you just continue to let it go thinking you can overcome it. The offensive line is the catalyst of the team. Without them you don't do anything. Get all the big WR's, TE's, RB's, and QB's that you want, it means nothing when you have a line that can't do the job.
Kemoeatu has always been slightly above average, able to pull very well but still struggles in pass blocking. Foster played well last year but much of that was Flozell Adams and a healthy Maurkice Pouncey? J. Scott is terrible, Essex is terrible, the list goes on and on.
5 more sacks allowed today, and 2 more written off due to penalties.
