THAT was the worst game i think i've ever seen an OL play. Don't laugh.....he could get cut and we could call one of many released players sitting around waiting for the phone to ring.

He's nothing more than an emergency backup but he's started like our last 20 games or something...

No point in cutting him- his salary is guaranteed and right now we just need bodies....Sign Adams or Starks....and use Scott as a backup. I agree with everyone here- he looked lost out there!

ON the forced fumble sack for a TD Freeney caused can you explain how exactly Gilbert botched anything?. He did his job blocking his assignment, his back was to the QB so he had no idea that Scott let freeney go and the fumble was caused. Personally I thought Gilbert was the lone bright spot last night on the OL. And the with sack / fumble caused by Mathis, Gilbert did his job there too, ben had 5 plus seconds to throw, THAT WAS NOT ON GILBERT.
Scott had one of the worst games I have seen and there was no continuity in the run blocking, but from what I watched of Gilbert he did a good job and when he cam back in and played LT after he was injured he did a decent job then as well.

He's the worst starting LT in the game, period. I've never seen one lineman get beat so bad so much. Gilbert looked way better, I only recall Gilbert having one bad play, as opposed to Scott where almost every play was bad. I know he was against Freeney, but I have never seen a game where a offensive lineman was highlighted and replayed so many times, nearly every offensive play. One time Freeney acutally spun him around like a top and threw him away, like he was a hitting dummy or something. And he looked like a "dummy" a lot to, he played a lot of games last year, there is no reason for him to look so lost on the field, especially when the rookie didn't. I think Gilbert is going to be good, he looks good, he came in hurt and looked better then Scott. Pouncey is great, Gilbert I think will end up playing solid this year, Kemoeatu isn't good but he's not that bad and he's a good pulling gaurd, I think if we get a good, solid, left tackle we will be ok. We can get by with a poor RG I think, we've gotten along with worse, we just can't have the blindside tackle playing like a backup for UCLA.

2008 regular season against the Eagles was worse, but not by much. Ironically it happened around the same week of the season. Hopefully the rest of the season plays out similarly.

I don't think one O Lineman had a decent game and that includes Pouncey. It might have been his worst game too...

Painful memory. Yeah, right around week four, which I remember because Tomlin seems to be 3-1 every single year (which bodes well for us next week, at least ).
