    Or so he says. Hopefully our line continues to improve.

    Good for him. No idea what to expect from Banner at this stage but I am rooting for him.

    I hope he can go and that it forces Chuks back to swing tackle since he was cleared from the concussion protocol

    my fear is they’ll move chuks to left. It would be foolish if they really want to run the football, but I’m worried nonetheless.

    that was their original plan before banner’s setback. Moore hasn’t been great, but he is a better run blocker than chuks. Chuks is an odd one. There are times he looks solid and times he’s just awful. Wish they could get his consistency sorted out.

    No need for green font. That sounds accurate.

    Great to hear, Hopefully he will be aggressive physically and mentally.

    And the Steelers OL continues to get better. And they play with a mean streak.

    I think if I was that unit , I would be tired of taking a licking and all the bad press.

    Take some pride in your craft.

    Banner was all hyped up after yesterdays practice said it was a solid one. Hope he is cleared and that he starts at RT. The bench is calling Chuks.

    Hopefully they don't move Chuks to LT that would be a mistake.

    Banner is closer to big Dan McCullers didn't do anything and still stuck around for more than a few years. They just love his size nothing more or we will see.

    The Steelers signed Staley, he played a few games then he seemed to be injured all the time, standing on the sidelines in sweat pants.

    Duce has something that most of the current Steelers don't have......two Superbowl rings.

    If they don't activate Banner this week, then he's ineligible to return this season.
