    Then, this begs the question: How was Whimper not ready to step in and play a few weeks ago, if he's our best option at RT right now?

    Something still seems very odd about the Steelers' tackle depth chart.

    1.25) Artie Burns - CB, Miami (Mackensie Aleander)
    2.58 ) Deion Jones - OLB, LSU
    3.89) Nick Vannett - TE, OSU
    4.123) Deandre Houston-Carson - FS, William & Mary
    6.220) Darius Jackson - RB, Eastern Michigan
    7.227) Graham Glasgow - OG (convert him to OT, 6'6", 307), Michigan
    7.246) Travis Feeney - OLB, Washington


    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    I guess we see why he was still on the roster. We all know Adam's & Gilbert's ceiling is a lot higher than Beachum & Whimper. The good thing about Beachum & Whimper's play is we know they have the ability to push Adams & Gilbert. That may be the best thing that came out of yesterdays showing.

    I hear ya, Pappy.

    Whimper was certainly more than adequate against the Ravens. Why wasn't he prepared enough to step in against the Vikings when Adams was being abused.

    Incidentally, Adams was on the field a good bit on Sunday, and didn't seem to cause any major catastrophe.

    Could be any number of reasons. Not enough reps. Slight injury. Crappy last name. Any of those things.

    Why did it take our coaches until the 6th game of the season to figure this out?
    I do wonder about our coaches talent evaluation. How long did it take them to start Cam Heyward?
