    Still don't see that at all. Watched a lot of the game again yesterday. BOTH Adams & Gilbert gave Ben plenty of time to pass from quarters 2-4. The 1st quarter was ordinary, but the argument could be made that everyone was ordinary in that 1st quarter.

    Ben doesn't get sacked if he can either throw to his own AJ Green, or if one of the "Way Too Much Money" Crew can manage some seperation within the first 20 seconds after the snap. Ben has to buy 15 minutes of seperation time to allow this lot the chance to get free. Name an OT that can hold off a pass rush that long.

    Realise you are being funny, but Gilbert didn't play that badly either. Forget what one website wants you to believe, go back & watch just the O-Line & see how long Ben has before he's getting in trouble.

    This OL might be the most unfairly judged unit in the NFL.

    You must've went to the bathroom, or grabbed a snack from the fridge, during your re-watching Chadman. Because it wasn't even as if Adams slowed Johnson down, the NUMBER of times I remember. I used the term turnstile, because it so appropriately fit.

    I desperately hope so....However, he looked better at last season's end then he has so far this sason.

    It's only a small sample of plays here, but in review, it's pretty much what Chadman saw all night from Adams.

    Note 2 other things- on Ben's missed passes, look how covered the WR's are- it's like they are bengal fly paper, the coverage is so tight. And then look how closely Ike covers Green, and how Green STILL catches those passes. That, in Chadman's opinion, is where the big difference is- our guys can't break coverage, and can't catch while covered, where guys like Green catch those balls even under pressure. Ben doesn't have that luxury.

    Here's a longer video, with much more of the Steelers play in it. Watch the protection from the OL, particularly Adams. The pass blocking was not the problem.

    I agree with your overall sentiment that the pass pro was not the problem. I even said this during the game time chat. I thought they did a good job, especially with a one week center. Velasco played very well imo.

    Funny how a waiver pick-up, Velasco, is the best O-lineman on the team right now.

    Actually, NOT funny, but SAD...

    give him a few weeks.. or let him get pushed back once or twice and the board will change it's mind. If a player has 1 or 2 bad plays they get multiplied when we lose...

    Gotta agree. Adams was the worst OL for us. That DE ate him up all game long.

    I think we will improve inside. But Gilbert and Adams do not inspire confidence at this point
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
