    could Decastro be the best player

    On our o line today?

    Hardly. Pouncey is clearly that player and has proved it over three season. Starks is also grossly underappreciated playing the toughest position on the OL and doing well week in and week out.

    Let's see if DeCastro actually does anything today before we reserve his place in the HoF. I do think he will be a key building block to our OL future but we are still another Guard and future LT away from the OL we really need.

    Agree. I'm hoping Mike Adams could improve his pass
    Blocking to be our LT next year. Disagree about
    needing another guard unless its for depth. I think
    Foster has done a good job at Guard

    Yeah, but Foster's an unrestricted free agent after this season.

    Since cutting Colon would create the type of dead money that the team would prefer to avoid (particularly when we are in such dire straits with the cap to begin with), they will likely have to keep Colon at LG next year, use DeCastro at RG next year, let Foster sign elsewhere this offseason (even though we may not like it, we have other more vital guys to try to re-sign), with Beachum as the Trai Essex like utility backup.


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    Foster has been the most consistent OLman this season. I don't see the Steelers letting him walk.

    Keep hoping on Adams and his pass protection.

    Actually Pouncey had two games in a row before today where he played very poorly.

    Yes, I completely agree. Pouncey has had an up and down season at best.

    IMHO, Starks has been our most valuable and most consistent lineman by a mile. No, he is not highly talented, but he makes the most of what he has at the most difficult position. Starks is a gem of a person and a fantastic Steeler. Foster may be our second best linemen this season.

    Beachum, Adams, and Gilbert as our tackles will get Ben killed next season. IMHO, we either resign Starks or draft a pass protecting OT in the first few rounds if we want Ben to have a chance at playing every game.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    any money spent on colon going forward is a waste.

    I would take the cap hit asap and get out of jail with this guy already.

    I don't recall STARKS giving up a sack this year. I'm sure he has but I just don't remember him getting beat bad.
