    Justin Tuck: Steelers line gets 'away with murder'

    Tuck: Steelers line gets 'away with murder'

    November, 1, 2012
    By Jamison Hensley | ESPN.com

    Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has only been sacked four times in his past four games and didn't get sacked at all last Sunday against the Washington Redskins. Pittsburgh's improved pass protection isn't the result of better blocking, according to Giants defensive lineman Justin Tuck.

    "I hope we get some holding calls because they have gotten away with murder," Tuck told ESPN's Rachel Nichols. "They've done a very good job protecting Ben -- they don't hold on every play. But we've seen a whole lot of it."

    Protecting Roethlisberger is a major storyline for Sunday's game between the Steelers and Giants. Roethlisberger has only been sacked 13 times in seven games this season. Of the quarterbacks who have thrown at least 200 passes, only six quarterbacks have been sacked less than Roethlisberger.

    The Steelers have decreased their sacks without an increase in penalties. The seven linemen who have started for the Steelers this season have been called for holding five times, and left guard Willie Colon has accounted for four of them.

    It's also a pre-emptive signal. I'm guessing that the Giants will be asking for a LOT of holding calls. We'll see if the refs bite.

    If not, they could always rip their own helmets off and curse out the refs a la DeAngelo Hall!


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    I wouldn't mind as long as they were all ejected like he was.

    Maybe all those head bob false starts of Eli's should also be called to the ref's attention -- not to mention all the holding done by their DB's'

    Could the Giants be scared of us?

    I think they see an improving OL and are trying to get an edge. The short passing game Haley uses should be a concern for everyone we play because it works.

    Take it as a good sign that Tuck is complaining about our OL holding...no one was complaining about them the past couple of years...
