    One big Steelers blunder: Kraig Urbik

    He just signed an extension with the Bills. Their offensive line has been playing extremely well this year. He is a pretty good NFL guard. Too bad we can't develop O-linemen.

    Some of us knew that when we gave up on him way too early

    I really interested to see if Kugler is part of the problem with the OL. I was his biggest supporter two years ago but can we honestly say he has made the OL better?
    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!

    I too thought we gave up too early on Urbik. Not that I know so much about football but, I had a feeling he would eventionally do well enough. With all the injuries, troubles developing o-linemen I just don't know what to think. One, I put a lot of blame on Arians and that he showed no kindness to this unit with play calling, schemes and okay, not having a real blocking back. I know alot of teams do not have full backs but, it was foolish to toss good guys away when, you knew your o-line wasn't getting it done.
    Are the Steelers so foolish at picking o-linemen or coaches to coach them up ? No........Arians was always the trouble and Haley recognizes it with his play calling. Not that Haley is so great, I still would like to see him mix things up more with the running, passing, big passes, screens and all that but, it's still his first season with the team and he's doing the on the job training with guys he has just met.
    This last game against the Cowboys, I doubt Urbik would have been an improvement for the Steelers o-line. Sometimes it looked like a jailbreak with these guys during that game.

    Yeah I'm not at all sold on Kugler as a good coach. He made his name on being able to juggle the lines for the Bills and Steelers through injuries. That is a good trait to have, but it doesn't mean he is good at developing talent.

    Fred Jackson has been hurt all year, Have you seen Spiller's first few seasons. This was his breakout year.

    Your probably right, It depends way way more on the RB than the o-line.

    He can only work with what he is handed to work with. You can't make a beautiful sculpture out of dog crap. Plus, even if he did make those supposed to start better, its hard to show it in the trainers room or in sweats on the sidelines on Sunday's.
