Wake up. Individually the OL of the Saints, Pats and Broncos aren't very good. They play together well as a unit though.
Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs would start for the Steelers both at guard.
Ryan Clady would start for the Steelers at LT.
I'm not sure that any of the Pats OL could crack the Steelers starting lineup- maybe Solder.
People need to realise that the elite quarterbacks cover for their OL a TON with quick reads, audibles to elude blitzes and taking what is available.
The only elite qb who holds the ball longer than Roethlisberger is A Rodgers... and he gets sacked constantly. It isn't a coincidence.
Logan Mankins is no slouch.
