Big FO mistake
 
The second Colon went down for the year, the line was sunk! The Front office should have IMMEDIATELY signed a player capable of starting instead of deciding to patch a line together. This also depletes your depth. Had they instead kept Hills on the roster, and signed Starks and Flozell - or another capable starter if he wouldn't sign, then this offensive debacle could have been avoided.....Essex is NOT a starting LT, and Legursky is NOT a capable starting RG. Now that Kemo is hurt we are really in big trouble up front. The Line could have looked more like this....

Starks, Kemo, Pouncy, Essex, Flozell

With Foster, Legursky, Hills and Gilbert as backups.

Now, it's just a mess, and quite possibly the worst O Line in the NFL.

EASILY... The worst

They should have been quietly addressing this issue over the past two seasons. How they can sit there and allow their $100 million QB to get destroyed game after game while keeping the same inept, patchwork O line and expecting different results is beyond me.

The other high paid QBs in the league have good O lines and game plans that have them get rid of the ball quickly to avoid even taking a hit let alone a sack. Ben has been SACKED 14 times in 4 games and hit dozens more. How many times has Brady been sacked? ONCE.

If we draft Oline, then we don't get good receivers and we don't get good LB. You can't expect everyone you draft to be a star. And injuries has been killing the team the most. Oline, you don't need good players, just average players that have played for an extended period of time and have chemistry.

in terms of games missed, the worst injury ben has ever suffered in his career (other than the bike accident) was in 05 behind a line of smith-faneca-hartings-simmons- starks.

cry baby steelerfans need to quit their bitching and whining already.

How dare you interject a sane thought into this ranting post!

That opening statement sounded a bit like Colon is a good lineman? Yeah, and I am the King of Ohio. Colon is just as bad as any other lineman on the roster.

The Steelers shot themselves by cutting Starks and Flozell right off the bat. When you spend all your time giving your LB tons of money there will be none left over for your needs.

I dont think they went after Flozell this year because he wanted more money than they were willing to pay him. I would have liked to see Starks stick around though, he was very consistent at LT. The Steelers must address the offensive line though in the next few drafts or at least in FA.
