    Re: Sacks don't scare Steelers

    Could you imagine how good we would be if Ben only has 14 sacks all season like DA?

    One thing that even Ben clearly admits in the article is that many of the sacks are on him not the OL. No OL in the league can hold off a pass rush as long as the Steelers OL is asked to do because of Ben's ability to move and extend plays. I hope Ben does get smart and take the easy checkdowns versus trying to be the hero and force a big play.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    "Sacks don't scare Steelers, Les' sig scare Steelers!!"

    I seriously expect a big reduction in sacks. The situation seems to just be set up for it. I imagine it will still be north of the 14 for the Stains, but under 30 should be a real expectation.

    That's why after every game when he would get interviewed, he would give props to his line (even though he'd been sacked 5 times in the game!). He gets that he could avoid some, but at the same time, the line didn't do him any favors. It was a pretty classy move on his part...

    I say the same thing to all the Peyton hommer's that I'm surronded by here in Indiana. Ben's passer rating was pretty darn good, but you can't help but wonder how good would it of been w/out all those sacks.

    We can only hope. I think Ben will look more to his outlets this year.
    I mean how much confidence did the man have in Parker? None.
    I would hope he will throw to Mendenhall.

    Good read, man... Thanx!

    We keep hearing how he is more understanding of the system, and better aware... It was the same story last season to an extent (being better aware, taking more control...). While I do agree with it, and understand that it also plays a part in how much dirt he accumulates on his uniform, there are alot of other issues that contribute to him being sacked that this article doesn't go into by design. .... Just sayin'

    Sacks don't mean diddly squat to passer rating...

    I know what your hinting to there, NKy. The Arians factor is on everybody's mind. This will be the single most measurable factor that will impact our offense's success this upcoming season. Let's hope our OC learned to play chess this year. He has the pieces to attain success, how well he moves these pieces is the real story.
