Pro Football Focus says that the Steelers have one of the best offensive lines in football.
I said all last season that the Steelers had one of the best offensive lines in football.
The Steelers coaching staff, through their actions, are saying the opposite.
At the two minute warning in the first half, the Steelers had a 4th and 1 at the 47 yard line. They lined up in a five receiver set and Roethlisberger threw the ball to iron hands Moncrief. So much for trusting that great offensive line, huh?
The first possession of the second half ended much the same way. An incomplete pass to Donte Moncrief on a fade pattern in the corner of the end zone. If the coaching staff had any faith in the offensive line, they'd have run it on 3rd and goal from the 1. Then, if they'd have failed, they'd have run it on 4th down. Nope. Mike Tomlin elected to kick a field goal to cut the score from 20-0 to 20-3.
The Steelers have DUDES up front. But if the coaching staff fails to recognize that, then I'm going to stop saying they've got "one of the best offensive lines in football."
