He let the MLB go untouched on that blitz. He helped block down w Pouncey.

At times he just looks lost out there.

I agree, our tackles are not great, but the inside of our line may be worse. opponents get almost constant pressure up the middle.

He looked pretty good on the run blocking those last three drives...

You guys drinking too much Rolling Rocks. Decastro is well on his way to a Pro Bowl berth.

They were struggling with the cross stunts. Couldn't figure out who to block, but in fairness, Titans were blitzing on almost every play.

Great. DeCastro made some blocks but he missed a lot too.
Quit listening to Gruden and watch. He gave credit to him on a block and he didn't touch anyone.
The dude has some serious misses and that's a problem.

...and YES I did see the last few drives against a small 3-4 front seven. Did u see him last week vs the Jets 4 man front??

All in all, DD played well...can't believe you roast him for missing against some elaborate & all-out blitzes & then don't give him credit for killing people in the 4th (undersized or not) - in the end, it was great to watch.

I was disappointed the o-line did such a poor job of picking up the blitzes. I seriously doubt practicing week in and week out against lebeau that there was something there they hadn't seen before. so, yes - that was horrific pass protection. yet, they made the adjustments in the second half and when your RB goes for over 200 - that's special.

truth be told, i think the o-line has dramatically improved this year. beachem still strikes me as too small, but i think munchak is whipping them into shape.

David DeCastro's play is the least of our worries...
