    I thought we gave up too early on him but hey, everybody makes mistakes, even the Steeler heirarchy. I'll take the Steelers track record on personnel decisions and match them up against any other team.
    You need look no further then the player in your sig picture. We are just lucky the Rats cut him too!

    Look at Starks. It's pretty obvious Tomlin doesn't like him for reasons other than his performance.

    I agree.. Legs is good at Center... but horrible at any other position. I didnt notice a drop off when Legs replaced Pouncey.. not saying he is as good as Pouncey but he wasnt a liability.
    Bronko Legursky was also decent as a situational goal-line fullback (back when Arians didn't employ an actual fullback).

    Kraig Urbik has lost Buffalo's starting right guard spot to Erik Pears. #Steelers

    Bruce Arians didn't know how to put together an offensive line.

    The C is typically the smallest offensive lineman. He tends to be short and lean. The Gs are typically stocky bowling balls of muscle. The Ts are typically the tallest offensive linemen, and are very lean and long.

    Arians thought that Doug Legursky, who has the body of a C, was good to play G, and that Willie Colon, who has the body of a G, was good to play T. Combine those misfits with Chris Kemoeatu, and you get a terrible offensive line.

    I wonder why the Chargers, Rams and Cardinals cut him.

    Centers tend to be short and "lean"? If you say so.

    Guards "are typically stocky bowling balls of muscle". That's what Legursky is. Don't know that the description fits DeCastro though. He's a bit on the tall side.

    This is a very madden-like way to look at it
