    Lots of factors:

    1. Played some solid defenses.
    2. Warmack is a rookie.
    3. Turner probably should be a #2.

    And it won't get much easier over the next three games.

    Is the OL playing up to expectation? Probably not.

    But hell, after that disaster last year I'm finding it difficult to complain.

    It's barely improved if any from last season.

    I think it comes down to Bruce Matthews.

    He left Houston and their OL became one of the best.

    He came here and turned one of the best OL's to pure kaka.

    Dude needs to go. Cut the friend-stuff. He's killing us.

    Both of you need to unbunch your panties.

    What is misleading about this title?

    The OL had me really excited in the preseason (granted it's preseason). I think it's still too early for concern.

    Come Sunday we will really see what our OL is made of. They have to really step it up now that Locker is out, especially in pass protection.

    He's the best OL on the Steelers.

    Schwenke was hurt during camp. He needed time to work with the OL in camp/preseason to have a shot to start and didn't get the experience.

    No doubt the plans are for him to start asap. Maybe that happens after the bye unless Turner shows more.
