I don't subscribe to Oline stats but I do remember it being better then than now. We also had VJ and Sproles. Those offenses were better all around, PR included. I think the quality of the Oline has to excede the NFL average for PR to get his mojo back. If he still can't do it then we will be in the market for a QB. Either way we need a good Oline so we can accurately judge the QB's play.

The line was merely average when Gaither played and Rivers was fine. I think some exaggerate Rivers's needs, he doesn't need all-pros to be effective. It would be nice, but just getting some quality starters would go a long way.

Looks like Steelers Linebacker Larry Foote knows the truth on why the Chargers arent succeeding... The steelers lost their young offensive line studs early in the season how do you thing they started bouncing back

http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/...s-search-power


Michigan blues
Steelers linebacker Larry Foote, a Michigan man, asked San Diego reporters for an update on three younger Michigan men with the Chargers: Jonas Mouton and Stephen Schilling, both drafted in 2011, and David Molk, taken in 2012.
Foote was displeased to hear that Molk is on injured reserve, that Mouton, selected 61st, sat out the '11 season and didn't make his NFL debut until last Sunday, and that Schilling was cut before the season and re-signed this week.
“Too much fun in the sun,” Foot said in jest. “They’re out there surfing too much. Tell them I said get their butts in the weight room and get healthy.”

I guess it depends on what we're talking about. Improving the Oline to any degree should help Rivers play better, but an average Oline probably won't get it done come playoff time when we've got a game at Pitt or Houston.

It's something of a moot point until we know who our HC is and what kind of system he's going to install though.

Gotta give it up to Haslam as LT today. He did a great job on one-on-one situations against Pitt's OLB.

Wasn't able to watch the Steelers game. According to the stats, PR had a very good game and was only sacked once! Did our patch work OL just play out of their minds? Did Norv draw up some clever help blocking? PR get rid of the ball ultra-fast, a la Dan Marino? Or maybe we've unearthered some cast off gem?

He wasn't even sacked...he ran outta bounds while being chased like a half yard before the LOS.

So what's up with that? How did THAT group of linemen pull off such a great game? Was Pittsburgh's D at full strength?

A Christmas miracle is the only explanation. All I know is I feel much better with them out there than with Clary

They haven't been Norved yet, give them a little time and they will lose their intensity because Norv won't hold them accountable and they will then be assimilated into the Norf collective.
