The steelers didnt make any adjusments to help our linemen out and keep them off Ben in the 2nd half... Is that Not what halftime is for? The Eagles killed us continuously the whole game.. and it just seems like we never did anything to correct it and get Ben some help.. I blame the coaches for this!!!


I am just really irritated with Tomlin and Co. right now. I just wonder what Mr. Rooney is thinking in the back of his mind of him as well..
And last year everyone here was destroying Tomlin & crew for the Timmons selection. As far as the draft goes, you can't critisize anyone for a selection THREE WEEKS into their actual NFL career.

Adjustments? What more could they have adjusted on? The backs and tights started staying into block on most downs once the pressure was getting to Ben. It didn't help much, but what else could the coaching staff have done? You can't have the wide outs block too... The only potential move that could have happened was Starks being put in at RT in place of Colon, but the entire line played poorly so that wouldn't have sparked much.

At some point, you just have to play the game. The team had a bad week and that's all there is to it. Blame who you will, the coaches or men on the field. But when it comes down to it, The Steelers lost - not any individual or group of the team.

I am not a Nate fan at all.
I didn't feel like Nate did that poorly last week... I felt like he caught some pretty nice balls and I didn't really see a drop so...

I certainly hope and pray the line comes together this year and things work out, but let's be honest, if the line falls apart this year, it should be surprising to noone. There have been line questions for a long time and little has been done to properly address it imho.

That being said, we have to work with what we have, so I am certainly hoping some adjustments are made based on what has been learned, and that this is simply a hiccup.

And of course we can start speculating about the linemen in next years draft. Right LLT?
It just bums me out of the picks this season. Ya Mendy was a good pick and i think sweed was to, but a QB, another LB? Plus i feel like Tony Hills prob. will get cut next season and we will start out by getting another stupid position like Safety, another QB maybe and it frustrates me.

There is plenty of reasons to gripe about the drafting the last couple years for the Steelers!

Look back at your list:....

OT Duane Brown is starting for the Texans...
OG Roy Schuening and OT Carl Nicks are both better than Tony Hills will ever be!

C Steve Justice was the highest rated Center in the draft and OG Zuttah is getting alot of playing time for the Buccaneers..

So, keep up with the info your trying to push over on some fans...

You also squawked back in early March about the Steelers "standing pat" and "letting the division slip away to the Browns" in FA (link). How has that worked out so far?

We grabbed Mendy in the 1st round at Pick 23 and Brown went to the Texans at Pick 26. Obviously, that decision turned out to be a good one, as we'd be up shit creek without the paddle at the RB position with FWP out for several games.

The offensive lineman the Steelers didn't draft would've been sitting on the bench right now while we watch the running game fall apart. We have Willie and that's it.

We drafted Mendenhall for this very reason. Willie is coming off an injury, is now injured again and won't be back any time soon.

but with a suspect Oline, does Mendenhall really matter tonight?

Who knows? I guess we'll find out but I doubt he'll be a big factor in the outcome unless he fumbles.

First did you see how OT Duane Brown is playin this year ? I think he was credited to 5 sacks in 4 games.He is nowhere near as good as any of our OL right now.

All the OL that are starting right now(zuttah and co) are starting because of injuries to starters so there is no reason to think that they would start here when we dont even dress our 2nd round pick(Sweed) not even as the 4th receiver do you really think we would start a lineman in the 2nd or 3rd ? I dont think so

Go Steelers
