According to Pro Football Focus, Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Marcus Gilbert was the team’s second best offensive lineman Sunday night in the loss to the Chicago Bears as they scored him as only allowing one quarterback hurry during the game.
The All-22 of the game won’t be released until early Tuesday morning and I can’t wait to take a closer look at Gilbert’s performance. The Steelers coaching staff evidently didn’t think much of his play because they replaced him for 13 plays during the game with Kelvin Beachum.
“They hadn’t played well enough to justify otherwise,” head coach Mike Tomlin said during his post game press conference, when asked about rotating Beachum into the game. “We’re going to look at viable guys. We’re going to turn the stones over in an effort to find a winning formula, and we’re not going to be bashful about that. Kelvin Beachum has earned an opportunity to play in the rotation. He did tonight because of it.”
As for left tackle Mike Adams, PFF ranked him as the Steelers worst offensive player as they have him down for five hurries and two quarterback hits against the Bears.
Right guard David DeCastro graded out as the Steelers best offensive lineman Sunday night even though he allowed one hit and one hurry.
