The sky isn’t falling, but Steelers offense doesn’t look good
Najee needs help.
Another recurring theme is RB, Najee Harris getting the ball, running toward a hole that immediately closes, or, worse yet, having members of his own O-Line being knocked back into him as he is getting the hand-off. If Najee makes it into the line he is immediately surrounded by a number of unblocked defenders.
Still. we’re getting flashes of what he can be. He had a really brutal stiff arm against Safety, Jonathan Abraham, and a very nice catch and a touchdown run in the 4th Qtr. If he ever gets any blocking he might be able to do something.

The Offensive Line is terrible. This was totally predictable and is not likely to change. Dan Moore may develop into a good right tackle but at this time he is not a starting quality LT. RT, Chuks Okorafor, is not getting the job done. On the interception in the first quarter, both Moore and Okorafor failed to sustain their blocks leading to a pocket collapse and hit on Ben by DE, Maxx Crosby.
Late in the game, a catch by TE, Pat Friermuth, brought the ball to 4th and 1 on the Steelers 41 yard line. Instead of going for it Tomlin had a total lack of confidence in the O-Line and punted with 8:35 left in the 4th Qtr.
That is NOT Steelers football.
Pay Russell Okung his bitcoins. Move Dan Moore to RT and let Chuks Okorafor ride the pine.
