    Thumbs down Offense lacks competence beyond a few key players

    It seems to me like Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller, Antonio Brown and Willie Colon are the only tough, dependable players the Steelers have on offense. The rest of them are either inconsistent, soft or lazy, and have a tendency to play to the level of their competition. It's too bad that three of the aforementioned four couldn't play yesterday, because it exposed the utter incompetence of the rest of the offense. The offense is a bit farther away from complete than I thought it was. We need some players who are dependable from one game to the next.

Then I seperated with [name redacted] and the other girls and went with another group, and everything else happened, and I was told about it this morning and felt I needed to give my statement. Looking back and hearing all of the details, it seems to me that it was a set-up, and so I think this needed to be told."

    Indeed. This offense has the potential to be among the best in the league. It's always a shame to see such a talented group underachieve. Not that Charlie Batch is the best QB in the league, but you still have to expect more out of this team. That said, DeCastro was just activated -- we'll see if he can get into playing shape and, if so, what he can do. Definitely have to find the answer at RB for cases where Roethlisberger can't go.

    I think sanders has shown he is a good talent and Starks has been a rock for years

    Willie Colon? The guy who has 5 penalties a game is our most important o-lineman?

    I think were really underestimating our FB as well. He's really created some nice holes this year, and they never get credit, ever.

    Willie Colon hasn't been blocking too poorly, and I'll take solid blocking AND penalties over no blocking at all. And the fact that there are very rarely basic holding penalties against the opponents, except for the apparent compensation penalties on Sunday, I'm ok with these penalties. It's the kind of penalty that is up to the ref's discretion to call or not.

    A lot of the players are good in their own right, Roethlisberger just elevates them. Except Heath, he could be good anywhere. And except the offensive line, they would be mediocre anywhere. Sounds like we'll find out soon if that holds true for DeCastro.

    Tomlin is semi benching Wallace. Doesn't mean I was right, but....

    He also said Wallace has been giving 100% effort...

    This is on the same depth chart where Mike Adams is listed as the #1 left tackle, if I'm not mistaken.

    He's also benched Rashard Mendenhall, who's now listed as the third-string RB behind Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman.

    Mendenhall and Wallace are both goners after this season. The writing is on the wall.

    I wouldn't be so sure. To me, this is Tomlin's way of saying "I expect more out of you and you need to show me that you're willing to bust your *** to earn your starting position".

    I'd say that Pouncey is a pretty high impact player. Max Starks is one of the most consistant pass blockers in the league.

    Just because Wallace is mentally soft and Mendenhall is a joke doesn't mean the entire offense is soft or weak. The offense was built around a franchise quarterback. You take him out of the equation and the offense is bound to suffer. Look as the Colts last year.
