    How do we know the Steelers didn't hit it big? Each of the first three draft picks missed extended periods of time due to injuries.

    Did I say we didn't?

    I still have high hopes for our 1st 4 picks. I couldn't believe the Rainey pick either. I thought he had the potential to be our ROY. In less than a year, he's off the team.

    Ok now I get it. It's a maturity issue with you. No problem. Peace.

    Go back and look at the video of the KC game where got hurt.. It was 3rd down and 4. He had Miller on 1 on 1 coverage and could've made a 1st down if he threw to him, but never looked his way, and then down he went...All on him.
    A stud OL may not prevent Ben from getting hurt, but it can aid in giving us a dominant running game, which will aid the team when Ben does get hurt and misses time. Gotta think ahead and not be so reactionary (not you, the Steelers)....I would be willing to bet 25 bucks that one of our starting 5 OL goes down with a multi-game injury within the first 4 to 6 weeks of the season. Gameplan ahead and have a stud waiting rather then have the injury occur and have to plug scrubs in to a makeshift line.

    You should have just stopped right there.

    The Steelers as a team gave up 37 sacks all year. That ranked 18th best in the league which really isnt that bad considering they were 12th in the league in passing attempts and 19% of those sacks were to Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich.

    Ben did not get hurt because of his O-line. Ben got hurt because Ben held on to the ball too long and tried to make something happen that wasn't there.

    Which he should continue to do. Sometimes it wins championships and sometimes it loses games. Gamblers gotta gamble...

    Agreed! It is who he is. And I like. It separates him from many others.
