    Edit: In fact, I just wrote the commissioner an email about my concerns with the product, including the removal of the all 22.

    Okorafor: 53.1
    Then there's this from ESPN:

    The Steelers offensive line is still a work in progress, but Green had a pretty solid game in his NFL debut with a 100% pass block win rate -- good for a six-way tie for best among centers.

    Yep

    It’s why I take PFF with a grain of salt.

    Both could be true if he was just awful in run blocking...or they evaluate on different criteria...etc.

    I kinda feel like Green might be a better pass protector than run blocker right now...but I really don't know.

    Re: Our offensive line scares me

    I am completely ok with being patient with the OL. Everyone is a new starter and two rookies. I am quite excited about Green and Moore. Kudos to Colbert for finding them in round 3 and 4. I live in Chicago and Tevin Jenkins has yet to see the field due to back issues which he had in college.

    I am still down on Ben in that he doesn’t have the zip on the ball that he did before. However … I will always root for the Steelers and if this defense can play lights out and Ben avoids throwing INTs - we have a shot. A limp Peyton Manning and even Trent Dilfer have won Super Bowls. Cmon Ben - play smart and run this offense and avoid dumb plays and give us a shot.

    A running game will be the best thing that ever happened to Ben.

    Agreed. But one thing struck me as the Steelers threw a couple WR screens in the game....the O linemen on the team are very athletic and can get out to block in space. A quick WR screen with linemen pulling into space can soften up coverages, so there is more space to run and vise versa. Friermuth and Ebron stretching the seams vertically can also help. I think the offense has a lot of options and it will just take a bit of time for the group to settle into Canada's scheme.

    I can't wait for a game where Najee Harris can find some daylight. He looks like he's got that explosiveness that Bell never had

    I was waiting for somebody to say this. Give him a few games to sort his shit out and this dude is gonna break ankles and/or bust heads. I have not been this high on a RB since Da Bus.

    If that’s the case I wish we were playing the Ravens this week. Our front seven would destroy that line.

    I feel bad for AV. He played his heart out for us and he will for the Ravens as well. That is his mojo always. It’s that his body just can’t keep up with his heart.

    I feel the same way. On the one hand, I wish he just retired a Steeler and saved himself the embarrassment of going out there as a shell of his former self. On the other hand, good for him for extracting money from the Ravens while making them a worse team.

    that is pure gold. I love your thought. Maybe AV is being loyal to the Steelers after all in a secret covert op way as he was an army ranger. He has infiltrated the enemy and expunged their monetary resources and is secretly poisoning them from the inside out. Love it! AV - black and gold all the way!
