I'm thinking if he's not ready to go against houston it could be addition by subtraction?

I mean trai essex is pretty bad but I never seen anything worse than last week's LT play

also why the crap is legursky still the starting RG? foster is 3x better than him

I agree with you on J. Scott. He has to be the absolute worst starting tackle the league has seen in years. When Freeney was doing the spin moves, this clown spun too!! He was looking at Ben and tryin to block Freeney with his back!! Ben was like "WTF are you lookin at me for!!"

While I've never been a big fan of him, he has been better than J. Scott for sure. I don't think Trai is athletic enough to be starting LT material but he should be pretty good at RT.

Gilbert at LT and Trai at RT. Gilbert has the athleticism to succeed at LT, and I say we throw him into the water. He passed his first test against robert mathis imo, which proved he has what it takes. Only concern at this point is his durability. He came into camp with an injury and now has his shoulder banged up.

kemo-pouncey-foster sounds much better than legursky at rg. If we are trying to become a better running team, we need legursky out of there. He's reliable in the pass blocking but don't expect him to open up holes in the running game like foster would

yep - Kemo / Pouncey / Foster might be the best group we've had in the middle

great white hope that he is, Legursky is just too weak to be a starter, he's looked horrible, gets knocked around like a bowling pin

sorry man but I don't agree with that. I could make 1000 'jon scott rules' posts, but he's still going to suck as he always has.

i support my team, which means i don't support players who are detrimental to our success

I will support Scott as much as any other Steeler. Teamwork wins games and helping teammates is professional and mature even in bad times..

And criticism of one lousy player (J Scott) doesn't mean we don't support the Steelers it means this guy is lousy. We know talent, we're Steelers fans, which means we know when there's no talent... It's simple really. We aren't 'bashing' the team just pointing out the obvious...

Like I said in other threads, I am sure Jonathan Scott is a better LT than I would be right now, so I am not going to bash the guy, but as a Steelers fan-- one cannot avoid the observation that he IS BAD FOR THIS TEAM. TERRIBLE, as a matter of fact. The Steelers MUST have been up against the cap to have brought him back after how badly he did for the last 12 weeks of last year.

I salute ALL the guys for their effort, but we cannot avoid the truth-- some players are better than others, and some just plain stink compared to the others.

I am sure all the bashing doesn't hurt Jonathan Scott's feelings too much-- he is probably making more money than any of us, to play for a team that we would love to play for for free. And at the end of the day, he may be the worse OT in the NFL, but how many people can say they play Offensive Tackle for THE Pittsburgh Steelers?

Scott sucks. Defend him all you want as a Steeler. But when Ben gets killed and we end up with Batch or Dixon as a starter, you will understand why most of us hate him. He should be benched. He really should be thrown off the team but we have so few O-linemen left, he will be going nowhere.

I'm on the fence with this - because if they could just stay healthy they would get the time they need to gel so we can at least block the blindside or sell the run enough to set up the play action - but here comes the Kugler Patchwork Special again and here comes a whole different group of men on Sunday @ Houston. If Ben gets seriously hurt - Scott will go down as one of the most hated Steelers ever - because it isn't about just a QB's season - it is about this core group of guys that most likely are making their final stand.

I feel like this group (coaches included) are refusing to come out and say - yea this is it - this is our last chance for some of these men. They need to recognize it in some form or fashion - maybe this is just a fan perspective - but I feel like it is the big pink elephant in the room. I think if they play the disrespect, redemption, win one for so and so . . . it would be a great rallying cry.

Tomlin already said Essex would play LT

Tomlin called Scott questionable for this week and said if he cannot play Trai Essex would start at left tackle. He also called Doug Legursky questionable with a left shoulder injury. Although he did not say it, Ramon Foster would replace Legursky if he cannot go.

who knows, if he can at least get a paw on the defender for a split second instead of totally whiffing resulting in -6 points then it's an upgrade

On Dwight Freeney’s strip sack and ensuing touchdown return by Jamaal Anderson wasn’t Jonathan Scott’s fault.

Nope, it was Big Ben and Mike Wallace ‘living by the sword and dying by the sword.’

Rewind back to the third offensive play of the game for the Steelers – a 29-yard catch-and-run by Wallace. Cornerback Jerraud Powers jumped the route, but was late getting to the quick throw from Roethlisberger to Wallace that resulted in a big gain.

Don’t think Roethlisberger and Wallace didn’t notice either that Powers jumped the route.

So when the same play was called late in the first half with the near identical formation other than a third receiver in the game rather than a second tight end, Roethlisberger and Wallace did their own little thing and decided not to let anybody else in on it – well, at least that’s what the films says.

The play was supposed to be another quick-hitter to Wallace, but they decided to fake that and go deep. More like it, it was probably something that was discussed between Roethlisberger, Arians and Wallace sometime during the first half.

In theory, it was a good idea.

In reality, it was a disaster.

First of all, Scott is setting for a two-step drop and a quick throw by Roethlisberger. Scott was in perfect position with his inside protected well for where he thought Roethlisberger was going to be vulnerable.

When Roethlisberger decided to take a couple more steps back, Scott was instantly out of position and Freeney had a free run at him.

What makes this play so intriguing is that even if Roethlisberger would’ve gotten the ball away to Wallace, it would’ve come back.

Guard Chris Kemoeatu was 10 yards down the field going over a linebacker – exactly where he was supposed to be because it was supposed to be such a quick throw. Also, Heath Miller and Hines Ward were already blocking down field.

It just goes to show you that even though the replay appears that Scott was absolutely whipped by Freeney on the play, all the blame really needs to go to the quarterback.

And another:

Gerry: Don't blame Scott for Colts TD
WEDNESDAY, 28 SEPTEMBER 2011 13:12 WRITTEN BY GERRY DULAC


Left tackle Jonathan Scott has been taking all the blame for the sack by Colts DE Dwight Freeney that resulted in a 47-yard fumble return for touchdown.

But I found out today from some of the players that the sack was not Scott's fault. Rather, it was the fault of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

The play in question -- second-and-10 at the Colts 42 in the second quarter – was supposed to be a draw with a quick-pass option. Scott took a short drop-step on Freeney because that is what he is supposed to do on a draw play -- let Freeney get upfield to the outside so he runs himself out of the play.

Left guard Chris Kemoeatu was also blocking downfield on the play, another indication it was a running play.

Roethlisberger has the option to throw on that play, based on the defense, but it is supposed to use a quick, three-step drop to get rid of the ball before the pressure arrives. Instead, he took a five-step drop, allowing Freeney enough time to hit him from behind, forcing a fumble that Jamaal Anderson returned for a touchdown to tie the score at 10-10.

Don’t blame Scott for the turnover. He was only doing what he was supposed to do.

i don't believe that, they're just doing the PC thing by not throwing scott under the bus. Don't tell me it was in the play design for him to get juked out of his pants and totally whiff on the block, and another time for him to spin around and headbutt roethlisberger.
