    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!


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    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'

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

    Could the Giants be scared of us?

    Has any team been held as much as Woodley and Harrison get held? It's laughable to suggest our OL is getting away with more than the OL who have Harrison in headlocks.

    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...
