    If Colon can play, then they will just leave Pouncey at center. I still think the smartest replacement plan for Adams at this point would be to slide Foster to RT and insert DeCastro at RG. Keep guys like Beachum and Malecki solely as "in case of emergency" options.

    Agree completely. I hope this is a smoke screen and that we'll see DD and Foster starting.

    As for the Legs/Pouncey switch, having seen Ngata absolutely own Legursky previously, I get it.

    Yes to this. Moving Pouncey to LG with a couple days of practice is not the recipe for success.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    3 (Comp). Jaylen Watkins, CB
    4. Justin Ellis, DT/NT

    5b. Brent Urban, DE

    This has to be the most intelligent comment I've read on this site in months.
    " We'll do the same thing we always do, we'll take every situation from week to week and do what we think is best for that week and evaluate it on that basis.. If cheating will give us the edge as it has always done then, we will continue to cheat. " Bill Belichick

    If we move Maurkice to guard, it prepares the way for Adams, Pouncey, Pouncey, DeCastro, Foster or someone else in a couple years. By then we could be free of Deebo, Hampton, Ike, Foote, Colon, and a couple other contracts to pay for him.

    Dream on......more likely to see Pouncey times two in Miami if a twin reunion is desired ....Florida is home

    We also just added Jake Long's little brother Joe to our practice squad. If Joe pans out, we can use their brothers in an effort to poach both of the Dolphins best o-linemen. We could have a Long-Pouncey-Pouncey-DeCastro-Long o-line.
