There are some unwritten rules of football. One of the big ones is, if you are an offensive lineman and you mess up, causing your quarterback to take a hit, you help them up. As a former offensive lineman, I can attest to this. Help up your guy.

This was something the Steelers failed to do for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger failed to do last week when Roethlisberger went down against the Las Vegas Raiders. An error guard Kevin Dotson owned up to when he spoke to the media this week.

“We weren’t noticing it during the game and you rewatch it you’re like, ‘I really didn’t go pick him up like I was supposed to,'”, Dotson said. “We know it’s not going to happen ever again.”

The Steelers offensive line has been a comedy of errors through two games, with this slip-up being the icing on the cake. Not only has this new group failed to protect Roethlisberger this season, they also haven’t done their part in getting the run game back on track.
