Default Offensive Line

I have repeatedly said our O-line is fine and that the sacks are on Ben. I will maintain the same theme for today. Dixons sacks were a result of him being too slow to process the information. He should have gotten the ball out. Our Line gets a bad rap.

Oh, so its NOT that the O line lets the defenders through, it's that ANY QB must be able to react to pressure in less than 1 second.

You're delusional.

The O line played slightly less than fair today.

So that sack when they rushed 3 is Dixon's fault? He needs some time when we have 5 receivers and they have 8 pass defenders. Give me a break.

Yes it was. He had 6-7 seconds to find someone.

The sack problem is on Ben. We had pro Bowlers in front of Ben and he still got sacked a lot. Our line played well today.

i agree. getting rid of larry z should make a world of difference. also good to see an honest commitment to the run (sure paid off with our last one).

did anyone notice the game callers say it looked like the steelers line was having fun?

good deal.

On a side note... How's that QB controversy between Dixon and Ben looking for Week 5? Thank God that conversation can now be short lived.

I can't read the OP but I must say I thought the line played well today.

The sack with the 3 rushers, Dixon needs to be able to move a little. The pocket was there but he failed to adjust. He needs to work the pocket.

The only sack that I thought was the O-line's fault was the one where Starks let the guy by. That's it. Te run blocking was excellent. I saw several early holes that were missed.

The pass blocking was good. Any decent QB would have moved a little and adjusted.
