Not saying it's a bad thing, but is that the right call? Or should Gilbert & Adams get thrown into the fire?
IMO, the development of players is up to the players and not the Steelers. The Steelers give them the opportunity to develop, it's up to the players to take advantage of the opportunity. The Steelers are trying to win games and if a FA veteran is better than a young drafted lineman then he should play to give the Steelers the best chance at winning games. I don't really care if Gilbert or Adams develop into starting tackles in the NFL it would just become a need that they need to address when the time comes, just like they did this year.
