We emphasize positional flexibility, and that's what we're going to use to solve this so-called offensive line issue.  Kama Sutras for everyone.

   That, my friend, is my biggest bitch since Mike started sayin' it... Position Flexibility!  What do ya get when you go after guys based on position flexibility?...Guys that can fill in at multiple positions.  What don't ya get?... Quality Starters. 

   You might need some of that sort for back-ups, but you don't want all of 'em to be back-ups.  That just leads to my next bitch... Drafting for Depth.  And I aint ready to go there quite yet.

When Willie Colon is the template for every position on the OL, you're in shit.  Big slow and not necessarily quick on the pick-up.

Two points that keep coming up like bad curry.

First, I can't remember a Steelers team that was this pisspoor at tackling, not just for a series but for four whole games.

Second, and possibly related, I see a lot of aggression against the run, where Timmons or Pola or whoever shoots into the backfield PAST the back and takes himself out of the play.  Plus, of course, have to love Woodley washing Pola out of that Arian Foster TD, that was just fucking brilliance.

OK, third point.  When did our DL get so bad at using their hands?  Unable to stack and shed, they're just escorted out of the play almost every snap.  I mean, WTF?
