    The offensive line is just flat out OFFENSIVE!

    Allowing 7 sacks against a team that only had 9 the entire season. Virtually no running game all day. Ben running for his life yet again. Something has got to be done with this unit and at this point I don't know what it is because every week they just don't get any better.

    The offensive line was PATHETIC today and Mangini has filled in a Blueprint to beating the Steelers that has been slowly coming together over the season which is pretty much selling out and going after Ben with the pass rush and if Willie Parker or Najeh Davenport get the ball you just tackle them along the way.

    all 7 draft picks need to be on linemen, and every line men we have now needs to be cut this offseason, the guys we have wouldn't be starting for teh jets.........

    i can't believe faneca thinks he's worth a lot of money

    i can't believe smith got an extension

    marvel is a ****ing bum for a lt

    and colon is all preseason hype

    and i told y'all from the start mahan was a bum *** bitch, there was a reason we got him on the cheap, and there was a reason the bucs let him go without a fight...........he sucks ***

    No it's not breaking news but it's more obvious now than ever. Mahan is getting beat more and more at the point of attack then Faneca tries to help and his blocking suffers. Colon and his bonehead holding penalty, Simmons is inconsistent and hasn't earned that big contract he signed yet this year. Marvel is the only one playing remotely half decent.

    I just don't get how this unit can be this bad...oh wait yes I can it's called letting them get old and keeping the same backups and starters in there year in and year out. We draft guys who can't even make it through training camp without getting cut and overall for a team that prides itself on running the ball sooner or later it was going to catch up with us and now it has.

    I don't think it was that the O-line was so bad for the steelers today as much as it was the Steelers WR's inability to get open. If you look at most of the sacks Ben did have time, there was just no one open. CBS pretty much showed that with replays. It's harsh to put all the sacks on the O-line, some of the blame must go to the WR's although our secondory played a very good game today. Kerry Rhodes is just amazing.

    Trust us Irish, the offensive line was bad today and it's been bad most of the year. Willie and Najeh had no where to run and Ben was running for his life. the WR's may have been covered but that doesn't discount how often Ben was running and scrambling on plays that aren't designed to do that.

    Pin some of the blame on Ben too for holding on too long instead of throwing it away.
