Default O-line ranked 31st in new STAT

They just started O-line Stats. They have data from last year only since this is new.

The Steelers were ranked 31st in the league.

There you go...and people keep saying we have the worst O-line. Now stand corrected.

Anyway, I'm sure we will be better this year.

Oh...I see...they have complex run analysis but to position the ranking, they just used sacks.

Well if the O-line says it is just Ben, they have their chance to prove it in the first games.

Our O-line does not suck. The sacks are on Ben. You will see. When Wiz and Grimm were here our line sucked then? I think not but we still had a sack problem. Know why? BEN

Pouncey upgrades our line greatly. The runs up the middle will be much better with him there.

Is it Ben's fault when the backs get stuffed at the line ( if not behind it) on 3rd and short constantly too?

Yep, it's all Ben's fault. Especially when the D is back there to take the hand offs too.

Are you saying that never happens to the Saints? Colts? Happens to every team.

Penetration happens to every team. Did you read the link? Obviously not. The rankings were based on SACKS. And last I heard, tackling the back behind the line is not a sack. Again, what I stated earlier is the SACKS are on Ben. They were there with Wiz and Grimm and the line was one of the league best. We led the league in rushing in 04, were top 5 in 05. The line was great But we had a sack problem was it the line? Maybe it was Wiz. Its ANYBODY but Ben lol
