Stillers' Story o' the Season
Not the QB's.
Not the shittiest offensive coordinator in pro football.
Not the continued employment of the "special" teams coach.
Not the shitladen receiving corps, mostly populated by XFL'ers and men who are playing "above" their true slotting. (eg. Schitt Schuster isn't a #1 WR; Washington isn't a #2 WR, et al)
Not TJ Watt.
Not the annual December collapse.
Not the worst instinctive, most illiterate defender in the league at SS.
Not the complete, abject ignoring of the tight end position.
Not the injuries.
The story of 2019 is this:
How the Stillers' offensive line went quietly into the night as soon as Mike Munchak left.
This offensive line went from well-respected... to a line so inept & offensive that pro Football Focus says that Matt Fieler is the best lineman we have.
Villanueva has regressed so bad, they need to send him back the the practice squad.
Foster is just plain fat, slow, and a pilo shit.
Pouncey looks disinterested half the time. The other half of the time, he sprays shotgun snaps with the accuracy of a Taliban rifleman.
DeCastro has been a DeSaster.
Fieler is barely a backup.
Never has an offensive line failed so much on 3rd and 4th down, and less than a yard.
Collectively, this vaunted, over-hyped crew of fat-asses regulalry and routinely got their asses handed back to them, getting little push with run blocking and allowing tideal waves of continuous pressure while getting mauled and duped in pass protection. It was complete piss and vomit, from opening day vs. NE thru the whipping administered by the Jest front 7.
Shaun Sterret has to go, and the entire OL approach needs revisited, and an OL needs to be drafted in the 2nd round. WITHOUT Munchak, a NEW voice is now needed, not just one who "says the same shit as Munchak". Some guys CANNOT say the same shit with the same effect. There are OL coaches out there with greater pedigree than a stiff who got he job just because he was there. Time for Coach Asslin to man up, step up, and make the change as soon as his team is discarded from playoff contention.
