Default Holmes calls out the O-Line....

"He came in at halftime and said, 'We gotta stop letting Ben get sacked,' " wide receiver Santonio Holmes said of coach Mike Tomlin's address to his team. "It didn't show. It continued to happen. He was forced out of the pocket too many times and forced to throw the ball away half the time and not where he wanted to put it."


Thoughts?

Obviously Tomlin is getting upset with the line too....but for Holmes to come out and bring that to the media.....that's saying something.

Yeah, of course they need to reduce the number of sacks Ben has taken all season - whether they are physically capable of doing so is another story. This line has gotten to the point of needing to be completely blown up and rebuilt. Hopefully this can be accomplished before Ben's career is ended prematurely.

Tonight on Stan Savran's show he said that Smith's back was still hurt and he was having a hard time walking today. Marvel if you back is hurting and that makes you unable to protect our franchise QB blindside then you need to suck it up and sit your ASS down on the bench because your going to get him killed. 43 sacks is NOT an option.

#7's jersey should NEVER be dirty.

well its about time they get a kick in the ass.. its no secret they suck... its hurting holmes too because he has no time to run his route. every other play his route gets altered because he has to come back and try to help out ben who is running for his life.

I don't mind if its dirty because he ran it in for a TD and dove into mud in the endzone
