Steelers Offensive Line Breakdown Play By Play Versus Buccaneers Week 3


Below is the play by play break down of the offensive line from the Sunday week 3 game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It is merely a pass or fail grade on if I think they did their job. It also should be noted that we go under assumptions that we know what the assignment on each play was. We have to grade on what we see and go from there. we added small notes to each play as well. As always if you disagree with any play, do so respectfully in the comments and give your reason so I can go back through and re-watch your disagreement.

It should be noted that Max Starks seemed real gimpy on that bad ankle but toughed it out all day. Keep this in mind looking at the success rates.

About Dave Bryan

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.
  • Lucas

    As usual, good job on these. I look forward to these every week. I am surprised how well Flozell has progressed since preseason in his move to right tackle. He is far from a pro bowl right tackle, but is making strides. Keep up the great work.

  • ToddinSyracuse
