Steelers 2009 Offensive Line Stats


I had a few emails this past week asking about the Steelers offensive line stats for the 2009 season. I finally got around to compiling them thanks to Stats.com. I have ranked the lineman by sacks allowed. I also included the sack yardage allowed, penalties as well as penalty yardage.

Player Games Started Pen Pen Yards False Starts Holding Sacks Allowed Sack Yards
Max Starks 16 16 7 55 3 4 8 44.5
Willie Colon 16 16 6 40 4 2 8 38.0
Justin Hartwig 16 16 3 31 0 3 7 49.0
Chris Kemoeatu 12 12 4 35 1 3 4.5 37.5
Trai Essex 16 16 3 20 2 1 1.5 21.5
Ramon Foster 14 4 0 0 0 0 0.5 3.5
Doug Legursky 9 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
Tony Hills 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

    essex did a little better than i expected. and foster did decent. for some of those I wonder if they took into account if ben held onto the ball for 4+ plus seconds.

    Stats.com attributes 9 sacks for 39 yards to Colon.

    Although Flozell is no better, Colon is not a good NFL offensive lineman. Not a big loss. He shouldn’t have been playing tackle anyway. Maybe they’ll draft another tackle and move him to guard when they make the switch with Pouncey to center.

    If you tally up the total sacks allowed by O linemen, it looks as though the statisticians are attributing 20 sacks to Ben and the remainder to the O line. Sounds about right.
