Let's see, an offensive line with players like Beachum, Whimper, Adams, Gilbert, Cody freaking Wallace..... and you are expecting them to hold off an NFL defense??
Also mentioned on the radio this am that maybe, just maybe, the new CBA is contributing to the poor play. There are strict guidelines on hours of practice, film room, and contact. Everyone knows it's about reps and hitting to develop a player, but teams are now limited on how much they can do.
On defense, same thing, the defensive line sucks and it impacts everything else the Steelers typically like to do. But, don't think for one minute a single stud draft pick can't turn things completely around. Look no further than the Bengals and Geno Atkins. Take him away, and that defense is ordinary.
Sure, I am down on Tomlin for certain things, like clock management, but this team was a winner with him so it's not like he has unlearned how he got there.
As far as the o-line goes... What about Urbik? That wasn't a failed pick. That was a failure in coaching and our coaches ability in evaluating talent on the roster. Legursky wasn't a failure either. Pouncey wasn't a failed pick. Neither was DeCastro. Colon (whom I'm NOT a fan of) wasn't necessarily a bust either. He's still a starting OG in this league.
Point being, these are not misses by Colbert. It's simply inaccurate.
