    False Start, Number 74.

    Willie Colon can move closer to the center, but he still can't resist false starts. I guess it wasn't anything to do with vision problems!

    Colon is a wasted 5million that should be in Wallace pocket. Until the organization wake up and dump him and Lergursky, the Oline will continue to look the same.

    Legursky is a backup on a one year tender worth $1.26M.

    Colon is a starter who was signed to a five year deal with a SB of $6M.

    They serve different roles.

    Some of these posts are comical. I guess this is expected after a loss. Let's see- IF you take Colon off the team and give Wallace his $5 mil, and then you take Legs off the team, who's playing along the OL last night?

    OK- I told myself last night that I was gonna refrain from commenting today- I'll go back to lurking...

    And for the record, the OL didn't play all that badly last night- considering what all they've been through already.

    I agree. Given that we went two men down I think the OL did well. Puting Legursky in at RG in place of Foster just took a bad situation to worse. I think Colon is going to excellent at OG. Give the guy a break. he was playing his first real game in almost two years. I think the combination of adrenaline and a little fatique may have been a factor in his jumping. I think he will get better every week.

    If he didn't have a history of false starts, I could understand your point. But in the end, he is still Willie Colon, so I do not understand your point.

    Yep...until some of Wallace's supporters "wake up" and realize he doesn't like the everyday, head to head competition with Antonio Brown they won't see he doesn't want to deal with that longterm. He knows that Brown is the real dynamic star and he is a "one trick pony." His performance suffered the second half of last season dealing with that so he sees the handwriting on the wall.

    If Wallace does leave I'll bet he signs for only a little more than the Steelers already offered at $9-9.5M per year.

    I thought the O-Line was bad to start, then got better in pass-protection, then shat the bed at the end...it was really deflating. I expected a better running effort than what we saw & the three sacks in the end were just rubbing it in.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    LOL. I heard a rumor it was too hard to hear the snap count from way out there at tackle. Maybe he needs to play center.
