    I'd call this year's OL alot of things, but definitely not a power running team lol.

    it doesn't make sense...

    well, it made a little sense because we look horrible on O and take forever to hike the ball. LOL...

    but Tomlin calling sub packages sounds suspect.

    Tomlin may decide player groups when game planning but during the game? No.. don't believe it at all.

Instead, Tomlin is continuing his grudge on Starks and it's hurting this team and likewise, hurtining his chances of being back in Pittsburgh for the 2014 season.

    By the way, you do realize that Starks is only 31 years old? How is that "done"? lol.
    above average? Nah.. and age has nothing to do with him being done.

    I read an article, where Haley said he wouldn't be averse to replacing Adams or Gilbert for Beachum. I'm happy to see that. In terms of Starks, it is moot anyway--he's off the market.

I'm wondering if maybe we held off because we didn't have a center who knew our scheme when he went down ...?
    Our Backup RT was supposed to KNOW all the calls that Pouncey would make! <SARCASM>
    it blows my mind how these guys are still whining.

    Wow
    You missed the part where it said he stopped calling it after Pouncey went out. Why would you expect him to call it with Beachum and a center that barely practiced a week?
    Here comes the BOOM!

    ...and I'm pretty sure it was a collective coaching decision, not just Haley.

    Arrogance and ego are Haley's forte.

    If so, that's even worse. Its a really bad error and if caused by ego, those things will likely continue to happen.
