Second team All Pro as a rookie, first team All Pro in 2011...
I'm all for keeping Pouncey where he is...
I'd say center...the guy who makes the line calls and sets the tone for the rest of the linemen...is probably a bit more important of a spot to have your best player at than LG.
Wouldn't Pouncey and his quick feet and run-blocking ability just be wasted at LG in the new pass-first NFL anyways, especially if the Steelers adopt the 3 WR base set that Crash likes to preach so much?

And yet, the much maligned run game, was pretty solid, in their last two playoff games wasn't it?
Pouncey didn't play, and thus, didn't make the calls did he?
Um, not sure if you are aware of this, but you can RUN out of a 3 wide base offense as well.
Just like this guy did:
Notice which linemen sprung him, the LEFT guard. Where Pouncey IMO should be.

Denver was the 22nd best run defense last year, giving up 126.3 yds/game. The RBs ran for 122 yards, although at a very high 6.77 ypc.
Green Bay was the 18th best run defense in 2012, giving up 114.9 yds/game. The RBs ran for 95 yards at a pretty darn good 5 ypc.
Sure the running games produced, but they weren't world beating performances considering who they were playing against and the game situations. The Steelers were playing from behind in pass heavy games, and the defenses they were playing weren't all that concerned about stopping the run as much as the pass.
They fell behind 14-0 in the 1st quarter in GB after throwing a pick 6...
Though what that has to do with Pouncey and DeCastro being the best C/G combo in the league, I don't know...
