Default Second half O-line - awful

No one played well. They were forced into double-teaming. Kemoeatu was outworked. Barrett Brooks should have played his last game for the Steelers. Essex was horrible.

I understand it's preseason but it was a mess. Perhaps this is a little hyper-critical. Credit Minn. for playing aggressive and mixing it up. One play Kuhn probably would have flat out lost yardage as he met not two but three Vikings laying in wait. I'm shocked he even got 2 yards from the rush but he hits the holes with some degree of quickness.

Granted. Kemoeatu won't need to be the anchor on the first team if his services are needed. Clearly not close.

I am not sure, but i thougth i had read where the Steelers were mixing up where they played tonight to get some of the guys working at new positions in case needed throughout the year they would have the ability to fill in where needed. Not saying that is an excuse, but some of them may have just been new to position. Maybe I am wrong, but i thought is what i had read.

Yes. Brooks on the right was a joke. I completely subscribe to the idea that there is a method to madness. And Russ Grimm would have a method. It's just obvious for the second game in a row that a few guys are gonzo.

What made it more apparent is that the skill players were victim in a sense because the timing was blown to hell more often than not.

Bring on game three.
