That number was almost doubled this last season! What's funny is I remember everyone bitching back in 2005 on how sub-par our O-Line was playing, lol. Sometimes we never really appreciate what we have until we lose it.

That has been my only complaint since Tomlin took over. Our O-Line has allowed way too many sacks even though Ben can take blame for some of them. We need to quit worrying about skill positions and focus more on building a strong offensive line first IMO. Without protection, what is the point?! Look what just happened to Manning last Sunday for a perfect example.
