Default OL: ignored for 4 straight years

No matter how you slice it; they did it again: ignored the weakest unit, most important of the team: O-line.

I'm so sick of this. And don't give me any nonsense. Want to draft Hood in the 1st? Fine. But then draft one so so OG, and ignore the position for the rest of the draft?

Unacceptable. We have seen our last Super Bowl for a while, until they address the OL. Our OL not only fails to protect our QB but can't open ANY lanes for our backs to save their lives.

I have had it.

Who snuck into the Steelers offices and gave all the personnel staff retard pills?

I'm sorry they ruffled your feathers. Here, have a cookie.

When Ben is getting creamed most weeks, and our running backs have no holes, I am sure you will think it's just hilarious.

They will never win another ring with an Oline that is that bad. Never again.

He gets creamed most weeks out of the season, so I don't see your line of reasoning.

It happened once. The catalyst is ready to become the machine. I'm sure you'll think it's just hilarious when we win number 7.

Those hits take a cumulative toll. Just because he has survived them so far is no indication that future hits will be absorbed without injury. And #7 will never happen unless they improve their OL - and this draft is doing nothing to accomplish that. Not a damn thing.

LoL....they also drafted a FB, which should help out a little bit if he's as good as I've heard.

I think we need to at least pay some type of cursory attention to the O-line in the draft (though I like the guys we got), but you're going a bit far.

We won the Super Bowl this year with one of the worst O-lines in the league. We haven't really lost anything, and the line will, if anything, get better, as they're all young.

I would've liked to see a Beatty or Robinson or Loadholt, but the sky is most certainly not falling--our FO knows what it's doing.

Hey, as a Ravens fan, I can tell you that we said the same exact thing about the Steelers during the 2005 season and especially during the 2008 season.

I guess we'll have to suck this year and blow few division games so we can pick higher and pick up some good O lines guys. Otherwise, we'll never win another Superbowl.

2005 was a SB win. 2008 was a SB win. I think I trust the FO.
