    Gilbert not so bad? Film Breakdown

    Film Breakdown: Marcus Gilbert doing his job this preseason Pass Blocking Analysis

    I keep hearing from people that Marcus Gilbert is slow footed and that is why he is continuously beat. Gilbert has had 40 pass blocking snaps and allowed four pressures which is definitely not up to par but it is what he has done between those pressures and how he was beat that have me encouraged.
    Gilbert has fast enough feet to handle 90 percent of the pass rushers in the league. He showed that against Kerrigan, whose only pressure going against Gilbert was the sack. Other than that play Gilbert did a nice job of sliding out under control with Kerrigan. I would like to see him keep his hands inside more during his slide as he exposed his chest a few times and was driven back.
    Why Gilbert was beat then?
    It was a product of poor footwork and play awareness. He had too narrow of a pass set focusing on getting deep on two of his pressures This is likely because he didn't trust his foot speed. Gilbert needs to focus on keeping his backside pointing at the QB and this means having the awareness to widen his pass set one five and seven step drop and narrow his steps on one and three step drops.
    Gilbert also begins to rise in his pass drops as the drive continues. When he plays low and keeps his hands inside he is hard to bull rush but when tired he will play higher and he still needs to keep his hands closer to his chest during his pass set.
    Gilbert has made his mistakes this preseason and it has hurt his pass blocking but he looks improved as a pass blocker. His biggest strides have been in his bases width and his pad level. In his last two years Gilbert was playing with too narrow of a base and was knocked down and pushed back easily. This year he has consistently played with a wider base and better knee bend. Gilbert's flaws are "coachable" they aren't effort related or quickness related as some have alluded to. Gilbert should only improve as the season continues he has only one full season under his belt and is still only 25 years old. More importantly Gilbert looks like he is willing to improve and the lazy attempts of a block he showed last year at times have yet to show up on film. http://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com...is-depth-chart

    If you click the link, it has pictures that demonstrate how and why he has been beaten four times so far this preseason. OK hes not great but from this account, he is much improved over last year. Maybe the sky isn't falling after all...

    People are just latching onto Gilbert as this year's whipping boy because of the frustration with the OL. Everyone forgets that Gilbert had a solid rokkie season at RT and he hasn't forgotten how to play football.

    The OL concerns are a unit issue, not a Gilbert issue. Hopefully they jell and pull it together over the next few weeks, but did anyone really think that the OL wasn't going to be "work in progress" given the youth and inexperience and the fact we added zero depth?

    If you want to beat on someone the focus should totally be on the so called "next great Steelers Center" M Pouncey. He totally sucked and looked far worse than Gilbert the last game.

    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!

    Gilbert had a solid rookie season? When? The guy never finishes a game and falls on people.

    I still think Beachum is a better option at RT based on his play from last year. I think Beachum was even more consistent that Adams at RT when he got a shot.

    I'd have no issue with Beachum, i just think he is very limited dealing with the outside speed rushers

    Dude seriously, you're making yourself to look like the complete Idiot. You sound just like the guy here who said we should have kept Starks cause he only allowed 3 sacks and had 3 penalties last year. That statement was indeed stupid, as is this stories logic. Theoretical Physics PROVES that one can hang a fully grown elephant from a Daisy..( Proven fact )...but use your
    EYES, use your common sense. I mean after the first what...10 plays, Gruden on TV said, " I have seen enough of Gilbert to last a lifetime...get him out of there before he gets Ben killed "

    And you think you, and this Idiot know more then John Gruden ? As well as about 50 other NFL Commentators and experts who have called Gilbert a Joke!!



    Please son, grow up.

    No need to be insulting. I just posted an article I found. Comments related to the article are welcomed. Comments directed at me are childish. Ive seen enough of you to last a lifetime. Welcome to my Ignore list where you are the sole resident.

    Adults are capable of discussing things without resorting to these types of insults. I suggest you take your own advice.
