I have to agree. With Ben, the offense is more up tempo and he gets rid of the ball quicker. Which meant Adams never really had to protect the QB for too long. I like him in run blocking a lot. I think he's gonna be a starter in Pittsburgh for a long time, along with DD, Gilbert, and Pouncey.

He's a rookie. Not every lineman is Pouncey right off the bat.

I might be alone in this but I honestly think Suggs is the most overrated player in the NFL. It was an absolute travesty that he got DPOY last year. Jared Allen should have got it with 22 sacks, and if not him then JPP. I made a post about this before but Suggs had 3 or 4 huge games with multiple sacks (thanks for giving our rival DPOY on your way out Rollerskates) and got absolutely shut down in multiple contests. He was nonexistent tonight too other than the nice play he made cutting the legs out of the pulling blocker in the backfield (Colon I guess).

Yeah I just checked the stat line for the DPOY. Suggs had 1 tackle and 2 assists in the biggest game of the Ravens season thus far and maybe the game that sealed their divisional win. He got blocked one on one by Miller more than once. To be fair he is coming back from injury.

I thought this too. Jared Allen was a total beast last season. There were at least 2-3 players more deserving of the DPOY.

I admit I am not a college football watcher, I have better things to do on Saturday. My nephew, however went to school with Adams, and as soon as we drafted him, my nephew was on the horn telling me that he was a lazy blocker. I hope he turns out to be that longtime starter we want though.

It seems after every loss, there is a few people who want to scapegoat a player or two. This time its seems to be Adams. Adams played no differently than he has all season. He is a very good run blocker but hasn't yet developed enough strength to "stick" a player on the pass rush. That will come as will technique. Of the three sacks last night, 1 was from Ngata up the A gap, the other was from a DB coming from the left side. Kruger gave Adams fits all night, but then Kruger is a pretty damn goods player.
This id is a rookie and not every rookie OT is going to play like Munoz, Long, Boselli etc. Adams will be fine.

Thank you for more rational thought.

Most think a pothead that didnt play college ball for a full season last year and can only bench 14 reps of 225lbs should be an all pro by his rookie season.

Adams was fine, he gets beat on the speed rush on the outside, other tgan that he is fine. When he figures that out out he will be solid. At least he is not taking out all our Oline each game!
