Default Kudos to the offensive line

This unit has been called every bad name in the book and I thought they were very good considering all the injuries and all the moving around. They weren't the best unit in the league, but they showed guts and helped the Steelers pound the ball in the playoffs. Heck, Ben had time as well. Good job, guys.

I agree. I'm proud of them too. They were certainly not the reason we lost. I feel bad for "The Hotel." It would have been sweet to get him a ring.

The O-line deserves props this year. With the cards they were dealt, hell of a job this season.

If we had hung on to win, Legursky should have gotten a game ball.


That being said, the O Line as a whole was horrible. The entire reason that pick 6 happened was because Ben's arm got hit as he threw.

Legursky played so well, you only heard his name one time. That was on that slightly fumbled snap Ben held on to.
He played great.

Ben's pick, IMO was 2 fold. Pressure was coming and Ben was trying to stay to high up in the pocket to stay out of the end zone. One play doesnt make the oline suck last night. They played well.

Default Our O-Line

Played solid football last night. More than well enough to win the game. Ben was rarely under pressure. The only sack was more of the coverage variety and when we ran, we ran pretty well. The run game got taken away by our deficit, not by the Packers defense.
The pick 6, Ben was pressured, but that's going to happen. Floating a duck 15 yards under thrown is not the O-Lines fault, Either throw it away or make sure you get it out clean on a deep ball.

The big talk all week was Raji dominating. Doug more than held his own. I don't remember Raji causing any problems at all.

they did, I remember that piece of garbage Buck saying Ben didn't get sacked yet and right after those words left his mouth down he went.

Absolutely, I was pulling for Doug even more because I'm a Marshall fan. Raji did nothing last night. All Warren Sapp could yap about all week was Raji dominating.
F' him (and Raji).
