    An absolutely "OFFENSIVE" line

    In case anybody on this board is not aware at this point in time, week 3 of the NFL we have absolutely a tin foil offensive line. It's halftime and they've allowed 6 sacks already. Ben is running for his life and barely even has time to throw it away because he can't even get out of the pocket to see anything down field. It would have been 8 sacks but 2 were called back for penalties.

    We all knew they played well the first 2 games, or atleast better, but like I said and many of you did as well this week..the test would be this week to see how they respond and so far the grade is a big fat F !!!!!

    It doesn't matter what happens the rest of this game, they cannot block a quality defensive front to save their life.

    Some of the sacks are on Ben....But you can't fault him when he is facing the constant pressure he is facing today.....Some of the sacks a defensive player came untouched....

    I think there was 2 that you could put on Ben for rolling out and not throwing it away or just holding onto it too long but still our 5 guys absolutely cannot stop anything. It's worse than pathetic. Willie can't get going and the WR's can't even get out in patterns and turn around before Ben is on the ground.

    As much of a cheerleader most of us are for the Steelers, I think it is time to let reality step in. Also, I have noticed that you guys who have played football look at the game differently than say I do. You are smarter and more aware of every single mistake whereas I am not. I only know one thing .........we suck.

    Doesn't take a former player, weekend warrior, or an office cooler expert to see that hun, trust me we're seeing the same thing you are and it's pitiful....lol..it's no doubt that our OL is going to take more time to come together.

    Embarassing performance all around. What's worse .... Arians game plan and counter attack was absolutely abysmal. Arians did NOTHING to help us win this game .... NOTHING!

    Im not a huge fan of Arians, but lets see what we've tried to negate the blitz:
    • Max protection - didn't work,
    • screens - didn't work,
    • run the ball - can't do it,


    The only thing we didn't do was to roll the QB. My point is when the line is being owned like this - nothing is going to work.

    How many blitzes do you think we'll see next week?
