Thread: So what, all of a sudden Guy Whimper is Tony Boselli?

    So what, all of a sudden Guy Whimper is Tony Boselli?

    The O line gave so much time yesterday, we almost looked like a normal team. I mean, I almost didn't recognize us!

    These last two games are just so encouraging. Never in a million years would I have thought I would feel so good about the team if at a 2-4 record.

    I feel good! (Da na na na na na na).


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    You know your OL is bad when Guy Whimper can step in and it's an improvement.

    So what do you think happened over the last few weeks? Is it the player or the coaches who made some radical change to take a guy from being so bad he wasn't allowed on the field after an injury to he's now playing tackle and the Ben had the most time to throw of any of the 6 games and it's not even close.

    I'm glad be beat expectations and hope it continues but there's something awfully odd with this situation.

    One thing that makes it hard for me to know how this question should be answered is ... how good (or pitiful?) is the Ravens D-line? Including the LBs and safeties, how good (or pitiful?) is their ability to pressure/sack/get to the QB?

    If they suck, then our performance definitely needs to be put in perspective. Unfortunately, at least for me, it seems questions like these are much easier to answer at the end of a season than towards the beginning, or even at the start of the 2nd qrtr.

    Coming into the game, the Ravens were tied for 1st (with KC) in red zone Defense.

    hmm.. Suggs, Dumervile...

    even a banged up Ngata is still a top tier nose tackle. I think they are (at minimum) an above average front. I just think the Steelers OL "SHOCKED THE WORLD" yesterday.

    I don't think any one is comparing Whimper to a great lineman, he's just better than Adams and Gilbert.

    I'll give you the answer in one word ... BEN

    All of a sudden he realizes that if he gets the throw off in 2 seconds then the defense has to back off. Once the defense backs off he can get back to "Ben ball". This also opens up the running game because the opponent doesn't always have 8 in the box. The way Ben played in the 2nd half of the Jets game changes the way defenses attack us. They can't just overwhelm our line anymore by sending the house. Ben gets the ball away too quickly for that to work.

    I hope Ben continues to play this way. I think he can be extremely successful in this system but I'm still not sure we have the talent surrounding him to take us anywhere.

    Its a bunch of things. Teams have to focus more on defending Bell and I think that's changing the overall dynamic. Getting Adams off the field is so big too. And Foster/Fernando/DD are all getting into a groove playing together. I really couldn't believe how well Foster was handling Ngata the whole game. His play was huge Sunday.
