If you're looking for a positive to take it of the Denver loss, it would have to be Mike Adams. When Gilbert went down, I thiguht "oh no, Adams is coming in now". He got beat on too many pass rushes in the preseason. Last night I'd say he held his own. I can't remember him getting beat like he was in the preseason.

yeah, i thought he looked kind of bad, plus none of the line played in unison.....clumping up on each other and not opening holes for anything.

Steelers open the night with Starks, Colon, Pouncey, Foster & Gilbert.

3 hours later, they end with Starks, Colon, Pouncey, Legursky & Adams. Lmao. This olines cursed. I'm convinced.

After one night of Starks, Colon, Pouncey, Decastro, and Gilbert in Buffalo.

If the OL injuries keep piling up, there is no hope for this season.

I didnt think Adams looked too bad at RT when he came in. He did well run blocking and rode out his rushers to the outside. On the one scramble that Ben had where he ended up extending the field and throwing across his body to Sanders for a big gain.....Adams showed his athletic ability and hustle to get an important cut off block. If he wasnt there, Ben gets sacked.

The sack he gave up on the last series was totally bad technique. He got off the ball late and turned and ran. If he is ready to kick slide, then he can deliver a punch and keep Miller from getting to the edge.

Adams would do well on the right side to get accustomed to the speed of the NFL, much like other OT's have such as Marvel Smith, Max Starks, Brian Bulaga, etc. Its funny how the haters pile on Adams, but ignore that Legursky could not get a hand on Mays and gave up a terrible sack in the phone booth that is the interior line.
