    Saw M. Gilbert #77 on his A#S More times today then I care to remember, Did Not see Rookie Will Simmons get Beat like that in pre-season but the Steelers staff CUT him. Signed M Gilbert to a fat contract and he plays like this???? With the other Offensive man being put on Injured reserve for the 2nd time and 2nd season. The Offensive line coach is MAKING some SERIOUS ERRORS about who to play and who to cut and who to keep! The O Line looked terrible tonight with Rothlesburger sacks in the LOSS to the Ravens and BEN Held the Ball too long in making decisions down the field. You’d better get it together in the NEXT 2 games TOMLIN.. this don’t look good for you either.. Because Both those Defensive fouls looked like what you teach the Defense to do when passers come across the middle.
