The Steelers’ offensive line came into the regular season maligned after what was a disappointing preseason. In fact, the preseason was so disappointing, Omar Khan made it a mission to go out and acquire someone. He did just that by adding Jesse Davis to the room in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings. So, when the team has allowed only four sacks through two games, it is an encouraging sign of things to potentially come.
However, what is actually the ceiling and performance level of the Steelers offensive line? Are they being covered up by some other factors that are causing that sack number to fall?
The answer to that may very well be no. Listen, the Steelers offense is pretty simple. And sure, they move Trubisky a bit on some rollouts and sprint outs, but as an offensive line, the unit is holding its own. According to Next Gen Stats, Trubisky is holding onto the ball for 2.61 seconds, only 9th fastest in the NFL. So, the Steelers’ offensive line has seemingly given Trubisky some significant time.
