    I agree that Pouncey would make a great LG.

    Really? Guess it depends on what you are looking at. As a pass protector I give Foster the nod.

    I wouldn't say Foster is better at pass pro... IMHO, they are about the same...

    I think foster is better in pass pro while colon is a better run blocker.

    goes without saying that foster is much less penalized as well. Colon almost singlehandedly cost us the philly game, IIRC.

    I would agree that Colon is a penalty machine, almost in the Kemo mode.
    Severely overweight and not to much going on in the brain section.

    I truly have nothing against Foster, but he's no slouch in the penalty department himself...

    I don't remember foster being called for a lot of flags.

    would be interested to see the numbers.

    People remember Colon's flags because they hate him...

    Colon had 12 penalties on the season: 8 offensive holding, 3 false starts, 1 unsportsmanlike conduct, costing the team a total of 82 yards. Foster had 4 penalties: 2 offensive holding, 1 false start, and 1 unnecessary roughness, for a total of 13 yards. (Source = http://www.nflpenalties.com/team/pit...lers?year=2012)

    Colon led the team in penalties; the next-closest players were Ike Taylor and Keenan Lewis, who had 8 apiece, and Heath Miller, who had 5 (all offensive holding). Then it was Foster and VanDyke with 4 apiece.

    I'm wondering if they could roll the dice with Beachum at LG.

    Foster gets a better offer and leaves and Colon and Beachum duke it out for LG. I see young Beachum beating out the oft injured, soon-to-be 30 year old. I remember him doing a decent job when he had to play.

    Perhaps Starks-Beachum-Pouncey-DDC-Adams with Colon and Gilbert on the pine where THEY belong and a later round draft pick, like a 5-7 pick.
