    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.

    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.

    I got to watch the 4th Quarter and the O-line, including DeCastro and Pouncey were just God Awful. Like, fire the coach God-Awful.

    Well, on the bright side, we should have the draft position to get a good OL player.

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

    Keep hoping on Adams and his pass protection.
