Oh, he's a turnstile.

He'll fit right in; we've had experience with them before.

Steelers vs Redskins: Joe Long and D'Anthony Batiste are co-backups on LT depth chart

By SteelCityRoller on Aug 14 2013

With Guy Whimper no longer in the picture for left tackle, the battle to backup Mike Adams will take place between D'Anthony Batiste and Joe Long.

The concept of co-starters is nothing new to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but co-backups? Such seems to be the case between offensive tackles Joe Long and D'Anthony Batiste behind left-side starter Mike Adams, per the latest depth chart.

It's not as if there weren't enough empty slots on the chart to give every man his own place. Kelvin Beachum remains the only backup listed on the right side behind starter Marcus Gilbert. Mike Farrell remains third on the left side. Seemingly the pairing of Long 'or' Batiste means they are competing for jobs, let alone depth chart positions.

Guy Whimper has officially been removed from tackle consideration now being listed as the second left-guard, leaving even less competition. Long and Batiste have only three preseason games remaining to prove who is the fittest to survive. Both men will certainly see more time than they did in the first game.

The Steelers resume their preseason schedule meeting the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field on Monday night.

Why do you sign anyone as bad as Whimper? What is the purpose. He was considered the worst OT that actually played in games last year. That is what you add to the team? The worst player at his position? I just don't understand the logic of some of these moves.

Steelers vs. Redskins: Guy Whimper moves from tackle to guard on depth chart

By SteelCityRoller on Aug 14 2013

In the wake of the injury to guard Justin Cheadle, the Guy Whimper experiment at tackle seems to be over as he is officially listed at left guard on the team's most recent depth chart.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have not been exactly impressed with what they've seen from free-agent Guy Whimper, who was signed for his veteran experience at offensive tackle. Now, he's a guard.

On the most recent depth chart released prior to the upcoming preseason game between the Steelers and the Washington Redskins on Monday night, Whimper takes the place of the injured Justin Cheadle as the second left guard behind starter Ramon Foster, and ahead of third-place Mike Golic Jr.

Granted, a depth chart is simply a formality in preseason action, and the team will play Whimper wherever they see fit; however the fact he is no longer in contention for a tackle position on paper may limit his chance to earn a final roster spot unless he can invoke more optimism with his interior play.

The depth chart also seems to capture the standing of Golic, who has impressed with his capacity for learning but disappointed with his ability to execute. Golic is probably shooting for a practice squad spot at this point, unless he can prove he belongs higher on the depth chart than Whimper.

Whimper sucks plain and simple. I saw quite a bit of him when he was a Giant.

I'm afraid our back-up O-line is going to be pretty shitty.
