Tony Hills is reportedly getting the next start at RG, and looking better at the position than Chris Scott.

How many meaningful games have been played this year? Oh, thats right...none. I'm a Raven's fan and even I can say that I wouldn't be too concerned about your offensive line or secondary. Last time I checked your team won the division with the same corps of guys. Moreover, my beloved Raven's have the same problems...garbage line and even weaker corners. As much as I hate saying this; the Raven's should win the division but won't. We will be too busy stumbling on our own feet to be worried about aspirations for winning the division. As far as the other 2 teams; they're from Ohio...enough said! So, with one preseason game under your belt lets not panic about the steeler's offensive line or secondary. Taking advice from Herm Edwards is like taking directions from a blind person.

I tend to agree with the original post. Especially the part about Ben's career and how it will be shortened because of the hits. True, not all OL fault...a lot goes on Ben himself. And some has to go on Arians for not calling plays with shorter WR routes for quick release or more play action roll outs. Adding Pouncey was huge, so you can't say the organization isn't trying. But the other cast of characters just isn't working. Not because of one preseason game...we have much more tape to show it goes way beyond that.

Herm edwards never won anything and he's most concerned about the line that got us to the bowl. Our organization makes decisions but there are always those who think they know more.... ok then.

First of all: hilarious you cited Herm Edwards of all people to "prove" your point. Herm Edwards is an ordained moron, and you know it. Tomorrow, you'll cry about some idiotic thing he says.

Why don't we just wait until the line plays a meaningful game there, sparky? No reason to blow a load in your pants.

Secondly, you trully sound like a teenage brat who complains because the BMW his parents bought him didn't have leather seats. C'mon, man. You're a Steelers fan, stop acting like a brat. Perhaps Colbert hasn't put together the best offensive line this season; may be he's never put together a great offensive line; but he has put together 2 Super Bowl winning teams, which means he's doing something right. I'd say he's doing a pretty good job over all.

Stop bitching......whenever you want to start complaining about Colbert, imagine being a Browns fan. Count your blessings.

And Thirdly, and most importantly, it's the first PRESEASON game. Enough said.

Yes, I'm concerned about the OLine and Secondary. Yes, apparently the starting defense is the oldest in the NFL..

But the front office has made the right moves over the years to keep the team winning. How they do it is beyond me, especially with a hard salary cap in place. Draft picks are always hit or miss, and they have had quite a few more hits than most teams. Plus, the Steelers seem continue to be successful on building in the draft and rewarding those that perform...

So for the OLine, I really hope that they pan out, but the Steelers have won a SB with a shaky OLine at best. Plus, Pouncey is a great center to build an OLine around. The defense might be old, so they were probably one of the oldest units last season. But they allows 63 yards rushing last year, so they can all be 40+ for all I care. As for draft picks? Well, they have a pretty damn good recieving corps because of the Sanders and Brown. Ziggy Hood looks great, and there is a lot of good talent behind the starters on defense...

Robert Gallery was awful at tackle and has done well at guard, maybe Tony can do the same...

Hey now let's not get crazy! Stay away from our LBs bud!

jets didnt look so great last night either guess they are going 0 -16 also...


so right off the bat based off one preseason game.. steelers, ravens, jets are all going 0-16..


shyt might as well just but the pats vs. the rams in the super bowl... because those teams just completely wrecked shyt in week 1 of the PRE-season..or maybe let the lions and bucs play for 3rd cause they looked SWEETT in Week 1- PRE-season

why even play thisseason???



o wait thats right it is only PRE-season WEEK 1
