Normally you do not think of 15-6 as a lopsided score, but Pittsburgh got its head handed to it today as the Eagles defeated the Steelers 15-6.
And this comes from someone who was traveling on business and did not even see the game….
- Seriously, one does not need to watch a minute of action to jump to this conclusion.
As the offensive line goes, so goes Ben. And the team.
Ben Roethlisberger got sacked EIGHT TIMES! That is enough to negate the quality protection the unit afforded Ben in the first eight games.
So much for the talk of Larry Zierlien’s new techniques taking effect. So much for Chris Kemoeatu making us forget about Alan Faneca.
The Steelers one glaring question mark going into 2008 was the offensive line. The preseason and the first two games made everyone think that the line would not be an issue.
Ben is lucky not to come out of the game worse than he did.
Larry Zierlein and Mike Tomlin had better figure out what went wrong, because Ed Reed and Ray Lewis are going to be licking their chops watching today’s game films…..
