A sad thing has occurred to the Pittsburgh Steelers....they got old overnight.

Key players from the past such as Farrior, Ward and Aaron Smith are no longer impact players, in fact, some like Farrior and Smith, are becoming a detriment to the team.

The question has now been raised as to when do you pull the plug on these guys?

The Steelers tradition and history is to sometimes let players be starters when it is apparent that their once great skills have taken a nosedive. 

The offensive line is horrible this year, but many fans expected this, although it seemed the management and coaches were content with the personnel they had.  Adding to this mess on the o-line has been some key injuries to mediocre players.  They had mediocre o-linemen to begin with and now you have to pull from your depth chart which are bottom-feeder reserves from other teams and guys who are way back on the depth chart for a reason. 

This will be interesting to see how Mike Tomlin responds to adversity.  The Steelers still have some nice weapons on offense, but these do no good when the o-line allows for a Chinese jailbreak every time the ball is snapped.

Will the Steelers roll with the changes?

Plus, Imo, Ben the rapist is about 1 good hit away, from going down for a while

Their defense has definitely gotten older in a hurry.

I couldn't disagee with you more. The problems facing the Steelers are twofold  1-absolutely no offensive line whatsoever other than Pouncey and 2-horrid coaching,specifically by Bruce Arians,the OC.

The line has been shitty and full of holes for the last several years now but Roethlisberger has been able to mask that by making the big plays downfield,but it's starting to take its toll on him physically,and Arians is too goddammed stupid to use any type of imagination in his schemes,is too goddamm stupid to think about throwing quick screens,and is too goddamm stupid to even try to use a max protect scheme.Brady,Mannin,Brees,Rogers,or anybody else would be getting killed back there,too,and a football team cannot win w/o a decent front line.

Once the Steelers figure out that they need new players in the offensive trenches and get rid of Arians,they will get better,until then they are stuck in the mud.

Pouncey is having a sub-par season, but that may be due to the riff-raff that surrounds him on the line.

Quick screens has been brought up many time, but Arians will not budge, just like he will not budge on adding a fullback.

Their defense has gone down the shitter, also.  Opponents are gashing right through the d-line and Farrior is getting pushed out of the way.  Aaron smith is getting his ass handed to him by mediocre opposing o-linemen.

Ben will be a cripple if this line does not improve.

No joke.  I watched the game yesterday, and Roethlisberger was getting hit after the snap in less time than it takes him to unzip his pants in front of a coed.
