    We are phuuuucked. Kruger is going to eat him alive all game long. How long will it be before DD is starting and Foster is the tackle?

    That just means Heath will go out for ZERO passes and be velcroed to Beachums side.

    If Beachum starts, let's hope Lefty does too. Save Ben for the wildcard run.

    Agreed.

    Why not play DD at LG and move Willie Colon to RT or play DD at RG and move Ramon Foster to RT.

    I would take my chances with a 1st Rd pick over a 6th Rd guy who sucked in pre-season.

    True.

    Ben might want to give his shoulder a rest for one more week.

    When is Adams expected to come back???

    Beachum should not be on the roster, let alone starting against the Ravens. He is barely practice squad material. I'd much rather see DD at RG and Foster at RT. Foster is not a great option at tackle, but he certainly is better than Beachum. I expect that Beachum in the lineup will force the Steelers to either use a lot of two TE sets or keep Miller/Johnson in to block.

    He mentioned in the presser that there is an option of moving Foster to RT and putting DD at RG. Sounds like DD might not quite be 100% though. He also stated It's looking good for Colon to play, but that will be determined later in the week.

    Supposedly, Beechum did enough in the game to warrant the start.- He hinted at that. Personally, I would leave Ben out, even though he wants to play ASAP. That turf- I don't like, esp. in Balto.
