    Gilbert Quote on Bell

    "He's an Adrian Peterson-type -- I don't want to put him in the same category yet, but he has that type of playmaking ability to break tackles and get yards after he's hit," said tackle Marcus Gilbert.

    Not to put a damper I hope he is right but considering THE SOURCE it might be a little "wishful thinking"

    If anything Gilbert is THE best guy to ask. Because Gilbert doesn't block anyone, Bell MUST make the first move and breaK tackles Who better to know this than Gilbert?

    LOL...CL I was thinking the same thing. IMO, Peterson is the best back the NFL has seen since Barry Sanders. I am a Bell fan, but he isn't Peterson...not even close. But, obviously Gilbert has some man love for Bell. That can't be a bad thing.....right?

    Speaking of Gilbert, on cooler talk radio broadcast he was asked about Beachum rotation and while Adams said that it was done to push them to make them play better. But Gilbert answer was that the whole OL had a stellar game. So just consider the source.

    Meaning nobody got their knee taken out by friendly fire-falling?

    man.. when will this nonsense stop.. just win a freaking game. I'm sick of all these interviews talking about what they see in practice and how hard so and so is working. Show us on game day that you are working harder than the other team. Until then... shut it up.

    "...and he better be able to break tackles and get yards after he's hit, because he's going to be hit in the backfield a ton running behind this o-line," said everyone who has watched Marcus Gilbert and the Steelers o-line play this year.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Exactly. Just wonder how quick everyone will turn on him like they did Mendanhall when he is constantly getting hit in the backfield blaming the RB versus the terrible OL play.

    haa,haaa,hhaaa...no. We were dogging Mendenhall because he was Spindenhall and because he peaked way too soon in his career. Guy isn't in the top half of the league right now and he is supposed to be a feature back. He is a slightly better than average back, that's it.
