Also, why the hell is Hardy Nickerson getting any snaps? 

I’m sure it’s because he understands the concepts. He’s like a worse version of Vincent Rey

They've blitzed a lot in some games.  And it killed them (see; Pittsburgh).

Maybe I'm just missing it, but I thought for the Steelers that one zero blitz at the end killed them, but they aren't blitzing a lot generally.  Just rushing their base 4 mainly...

I'd be lying if i said i had watched more than 6 quarters of football this year.  But i thought i saw a stat after the Steelers game where Ben's QB rating against a standard 4 man rush was like 80, and against the blitz was something like 130.  Don't have time to dig it up right now though.

Steelers game, I'm actually fine with whatever we do.  We seem to play them relatively well defensively.  It's every other game that annoys me...

Which would make sense is we could cover, but we can't. We might as well blitz the majority of the snaps so at least we'll have a chance at pressure.

Side note, Paul Alexander was already fired from the Cowboys. 

Only took them half a season

That's incredible.  With one team for what, like 20 seasons?  They finally let him go because it had become too painfully obvious he wasn't good at his job.  Next team fires him after 8 games.  Just wow.

Didn't we trade offensive line coaches with the Cowboys this off season?

Between this team and IU football I'm going to have an aneurysm before I turn 30.

Looked it up.  He was with the Bengals for 27 years.

Bengals might have been a slow to move on...

That is mind blowing. Took the Bengals years to cut the cord. Other teams realize how bad he is and move on right away. Hence why we stuck with terrible C forever and refuse to make changes when needed.

Saw that Rams cut OL J. Brown, we should bring him in to replace Redmond 

Honestly,  I am thinking Price should replace Redmond. Keep Hopkins at center.

Any combination of Price and Hopkins at C/RG, I'm good with...
