"There was a time that we thought [tight end] Matt Spaeth was going to have to play right tackle for us," quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. "Guys answered the bell."
Wouldn't it have been better to play Johnson, Hines Ward, Issac Redman, or me at Right Tackle instead of Spaeth. You know...someone who can actually block.
Who the hell dresses only 7 offensive lineman? 50 spots (minus special teams guys), 22 starters, which is roughly 2 players per position, which means roughly 10 Oline to dress. Now I understand they dont play much of a role on special teams, and are relatively interchangeable, blah blah blah. But you have to dress more than 7.
Unless you want to dress 18 linebackers.
I guess I answered my own question.
And I shouldn't be surprised considering we were one play away from trotting ARE out at QB earlier this year.
