Default Steelers offensive line leaves a lot to be desired.

That paradox is nice, but it's also ancient history. A new Pittsburgh Paradox, a more profound Pittsburgh Paradox, has emerged in recent years, and its come to define the team, including here in 2010. Most notably, the Steelers rank No. 1 in the Defensive Hog Index and No. 32 in Offensive Hog Index, two tools used by the Cold, Hard Football Facts to quantify the best and worst offensive and defensive lines in football.

Sure, it's only two weeks into the season. But two weeks are also 12.5 percent of the schedule. The train has left the statistical station. Thanks to 2008 Defensive Player of the Year James Harrison, who already has three sacks in 2010, Pittsburgh's D-Hogs are shaping up as the best in the biz. The O-Hogs are shaping up as the worst in the biz.

But it's not just the two weeks of this season that are the problem. If it were, we wouldn't have a story. Instead, it's the fact this these 2010 trends are part of the much larger Pittsburgh Paradox.

• The Steelers are going on three straight seasons with outstanding defensive lines and terribly weak offensive lines.

• The 2008 Steelers ranked No. 1 on the Defensive Hog Index and ranked No. 28 on the Offensive Hog Index.

• The 2009 Steelers ranked No. 12 on the Defensive Hog Index and ranked No. 22 on the Offensive Hog Index

Interesting, but I don't think it's as bad as all that. Once Ben is back, Max is healthy we'll be ok. Still not good enough though, this team needs to devote at least one more first day pick to the OL, and it better be a good pick.
