It's no secret that the Steelers offensive line has been a mess for some time now. After firing OL coach Jack Bicknell, Pittsburgh will be searching for its third line coach in as many years. And rightfully so.
Over the last three seasons, the Steelers have added talent to the offensive line via high picks in the draft. Guys like Marcus Gilbert, David DeCastro and Mike Adams were all brought in to be immediate impact players along the teams' front line. And although DeCastro blossomed this season, Gilbert has moved back and forth between left and right tackle while Adams was benched in 2013.
Injuries have also played a significant role in the demise of the Steelers front line. This season, DeCastro, Adams and Ramon Foster all missed games with injuries, not to mention Pro Bowl center, Maurkice Pouncey, whose season was cut well short after tearing his ACL in week one.
Pittsburgh needs to do itself a favor and add a strong offensive line coach. After that, depth along the front line is a must. If the Steelers fail to do, really, either of these, we could be looking at another rough season for the Pittsburgh front.
