I agree part of the problem is Ben holds onto the ball to long, and part of that is receivers dogging their routes at times. However, when Ben has to start scrambling because he can't complete his dropback without pressure...that puts more pressure on receivers to get open quicker, break off their routes and start scrambling themselves.

The offensive woes start with those five lard arses up front that couldn't block their way out of a wet paper bag. The FO needs to look into finding some QUALITY offensive linemen.
The offensive line is average. They are good enough.They opened a lot of holes for Mewelde and only one sack was on them.

Ben holds onto the ball a lil too long, but its how he found Nat for 2 TD's..and 1 that was called back for holding....I think the play calling was sucky today too, Moore was getting yards on the ground w/ the no huddle....it seems that is the only time the STEELERS O is in sync!

I like the "where is the bootleg" call...

kind of wondered that a few times myself...at least on the Boot, Ben can always pull it down and scramble.

Fans were complaining about the same things under Whisenhunt. Or don't you remember all of the catcalls for his firing during the 2006 season?

I personally liked the Wiz.

My question is, if the O Line is the main problem, can they be coached up or do you guys think that the talent is that bad in those positions?

Agreed - the OL wasn't the primary problem. Ben and the WRs played poorly. As much as our passing game clicked against JAX, it stalled every bit as much today. And props to the D. Our D will keep is in every game.

I think the OLine play is very spotty. At times they actually look pretty good, but it is not consistent.

I don't think the Oline was the problem today. They gave Ben a lot of really good pockets. Also, they opened up some pretty good running lanes. Sure, we let up a couple sacks, 5 of them, to a team that is a sack machine team. But, they weren't all the Olines fault.

There was that one though where that dude came from Ben's blindside completely unblocked. That was a mess. But I didn't think the Oline was the problem. The entire offense made mistakes. All over the place. From Washington not holding onto the all (it bounced out of his hands before he got shalacked) to Sweed not being able to break a single man tackle on a late reception, to Moore...well heck he did a great job I think...to Ben missing reads, to Ward not being open often enough.

Complete Offensive Meltdown. 2nd time this year.

2 losses.
