Default Hartwig to Blame For the Most Sacks

So much for Hartwig being the answer.... and Mahan being the problem.

from a link in another thread, I found this little beauty...
Quote:
SACKS ALLOWED
Player .... Sacks
Justin Hartwig 3
Willie Colon 2
Marvel Smith 1.5
Chris Kemoeatu 1
Heath Miller 1
Mewelde Moore .5

Now... Let's talk about this a second.

1. Who was responsible for the MOST sacks? Hmmmmmmmmmmm? That's right. HARTWIG.

2. Who's name is NOT up there that is almost ALWAYS spoken of with disdain? That's right, SIMMONS.


So much for all these website know-it-alls who think Simmons and Mahan were our problems last year, and cried cried cried when we let Faneca go.

Oh yeah, let's look at Faneca's replacement. How many sacks was that? 1? Only his third game starting?

What I learned from this little tidbit.

1. Faneca-- We DONT need you, your replacement is fine.

2. Hartwig sucked this game worse than Mahan EVERY DID in a game.

3. People need to cool off about Simmons.

4. Colon needs to figure out what is wrong.

Don't use Hartwig's ineptitude to make up for Mahan's ineptitude.

Time to bring out the "Hartwig sucks" threads.

Um.. MOP,

They add up to 8 sacks.

and the .5 sack is when responsibility is spread between two people.

I would imagine the other sack would be Ben's fault.

Which means that Ben ISN"T responsible for them all, like some people here want to pin it on.

I am MORE THAN WILLING to take 1 sack a week for Ben to extend plays. Heck, I am will to take 2 sacks a week for Ben to extend plays. I have no problem with that.


EDIT: I see what you did... you missed the ( . ) before the 5 for Moore. That is half a sack, not 5 sacks.

Ahhh.... I KNEW Mahan would still be the scapegoat of last year...

I am waiting to see how he becomes the scapegoat for this year.

ohhh...my bad...i didnt see the point in front of moore and counted it as 5......i thought it was the season tally.....
anywho.....these numbers conflict with the anaylisis of the the guy on the thread that suit started, which would suggest that these are simply opinions and not facts. nobody knows the actual blocking assignments, and who blew what, except the steelers and coach's themselves.

Yep... I actually just edited my post about the same time to say that is what I thought you did...

Well, can't say I have never done something like that!
