Steelers have been pass happy for quite a few years now and those guys haven't really been good at either run or pass blocking..



One could be seen as a result of the other. Kind of like how our line produced good rushing totals until Chud found away to neutralize their talents with the read option.

can't say I have seen either though.. poor at rushing, while the QB consistently finds a way to keep the play alive in spite of his OL's pass protection.

Colon played pretty well at guard, I'd consider him above average there. I'd love to pick him up on a really cheap one or two year deal.

And while the Steelers OL isn't an elite group by any means, they aren't as bad as they are perceived. Big Ben hanging onto the ball for 18 seconds every play makes them look worse than they really are.

yep, they've pretty much just been ineffective at everything.

Sounds familiar.
