The Steelers seem ready to go as they are a couple days away from starting the season, but the ESPN gurus have a different take on the Black and Gold
“Guy Whimper is the only offseason addition for the Steelers’ offensive line, which produced a league-worst 1.7 yards before contact per rush last season.”
Sure Whimper is the only offseason addition on the line, but overall the team has been employing a different run scheme, and I think that’s being overlooked in the process of what the team is trying to accomplish with the new way they want to run.
As far the 1.7 yards before contact, look for that to change with Le’Veon Bell pounding into the line as well as making people miss once he gets healthy. Bottom line, I have a hard time agreeing that the Steelers are 16th right now in the league.
