The standard is the standard.
For that offensive line, the standard is not excellent, but rather ineptitude. Not only did they meet the standard, they exceeded it.
Ben Roethlisberger was under distress the entire game, especially on the Steelers final two drives, when they needed the line to be at its best.
Instead, they failed, and the Steelers fell to 2-2 in a game that they easily could have won despite being dominated for virtually the entire first half.
Pittsburgh has a lot of talent on its roster, but most of that talent is underachieving which is reflected in this week’s report card.
