    again, what have you seen from urbik that makes you say this? The fact that he signed an extension that was for absolutely average money?

    could we use him now with all of the injuries, sure. Back then? He couldn't win a spot.
    If he's average, he's better than most of our OL. Him and Foster are pretty much equals.

    Do you hate Foster? Get off Urbiks balls, he's turned into a good starting caliber guard.

    Buffalo reaped the benefit of Steelers 3rd round pick and they blundered by not keeping him. Who would they have lost if they had kept him?

    With all of these injuries, they could have used him this year.

    you don't read too good if you think I'm a foster hater.

    and if anyone is on Urbiks balls in this thread, it certainly isn't me. He is an average NFL guard. Did we send him packing a year too early? Maybe, but at what expense really. He isn't an elite guard by any stretch of the imagination.

    projecting roster moves from two years ago to the current injury situation seems foolish to me.

    Would love to see how Colon, Foster, and Urbik rank on pro football focus. Anyone?

    By this, Foster ranks as one of the worst 10 OG in pass blocking efficiency in the NFL...

    Not a surprise. Our interior OL with Kemo and Foster was the reason Ben got killed last year and why if a top Guard like Chance Warmack is there in Round 1 we shouldn't hesitate to go OL again.
    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!

    yeah, it had nothing to do with a qb that has a propensity to hold the ball too long.

    that study covers the 1st three years of an UDFA career in the NFL. Hardly surprising he isn't in the upper echelon, though I wish this year had been included.

    it sure is funny how the same people who railed against drafting OGs in the first round now seemingly want to draft one every year. These are not premium positions. Draft and develop along the interior, IMO. No need to fill with high draft choices.

    in this Urbik was the top rated pass blocking OG. I was personally pissed we cut Kraig way too early when we did it.

    Here is another on off. line for early this year: https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...line-rankings/
    https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...ne-rankings/2/

    9. Buffalo Bills
    PB = 4th, RB = 18th, PEN = 20th
    They’re a worse team for not being able to call upon rookie Cordy Glenn every week, but they do a good job in keeping pressure off Ryan Fitzpatrick (he doesn’t need any assistance making mistakes). The run blocking is a little “meh”, with the team taking the approach that Spiller and Jackson will get yards regardless of what they do.


    24. Pittsburgh Steelers
    PB = 11th, RB = 31st, PEN = 27th
    When you consider how they’ve been riddled with injuries this isn’t too bad. Now, if Mike Adams can continue to play the way he did against the Bengals, they’ll be moving up swiftly.

    One one hand you say this, and on the other hand you say the Steelers didn't blunder by not doing this with Urbik. Hypocritical.

    But, but, the Steelers didn't make a mistake letting him go.
