    Oline Grade so far (PFF)

    Just to infuriate people...

    The Steelers Oline has graded out at 15th in the league by PFF so far...
    10th in run blocking
    21st in pass protecting

    I highly recommend a subscription if you are interested in advanced stats derived from individual execution on a play by play basis.

    And I can direct you to a MIT website that shows conclusively that a Elephant CAN hang upside down from a Daisy stem...this is a ACTUAL MIT FACT!!


    But I'd rather go with my Eyes and COMMEN SENSE. Our O-Line is among the WORST...period.

    Being that they consist of 5 1st and 2nd round picks over the last years.. im all in that they will stay healthy and gel within in a year.

    If not we are in for a 5 year death spiral....

    21st in pass protecting is not good.....Some are quick to knock Ben but this just proves he needs better protection.....Hopefully Bell helps the OL in the run blocking department.....

    Exactly. 21st in pass protection simply confirms what most fans and analysts have been saying. I don't see who would be infuriated. People who say the team can't run? The team can't run and the stats say so regardless of where the oline is ranked in run blocking.

    21st in pass protection is not good enough. There is no doubt about that...

    But the belief around here that we have the "worst oline ever".... is simply not true...
    And the belief that the "horrendous" offensive line is the sole reason for offensive failures is also not true.

    hogwash...21st doesnt confirm your statements that we have one of the worst olines in the NFL.

    You correlated offensive line performance as an excuse for QB play... yet Indy's offensive line has graded out far worse, so has Seattle's (They've lost Unger and Okung).... and Kansas City.... yet those team's offenses aren't turning the ball over at horrendous rates, and failing to execute in the red zone.

    You see this as confirmation of something you believed... while it's actually quite the opposite.

    21st best out of 32 teams (20 teams better and only 11 teams worse) in pass protection doesn't confirm that this oline is one of the worst in the NFL in pass protection?

    I don't what's more stupid, the fact that you used a stat that contradicts your agenda or the fact that you thought people would somehow believe the oline doesn't suck in pass protection because a respected website ranked them 21st best out of 32 in pass protection.
