It was probably Legursky who replaced Colon
they moved pouncey to LG and threw legursky in at center if memory serves.
then decastro got healthy and they then moved foster to LG.
that reminds me... has anyone seen news on contract talks with Foster?
1. C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
2. Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech or Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
3. (comp) Jared Abbrederis WR Wisconsin or Jeremiah Attaochu OLB Georgia Tech
4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia or James Hurst OT North Carolina
5. Kenny Ladler FS Vanderbilt
5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech
6. Ricardo Allen CB Purdue
7. Quincy Enunwa WR Nebraska or Andrew Jackson ILB W. Kentucky
That's right. Initially, I thought it was Legursky but they made the swtich because Legursky sucked it up at LG.
Legursky is not a good guard. IMO, he could probably start somewhere as a center but he's not a starting guard.
I wouldn't be so quick to cut Willie, keep in mind last season was only his first playing the position and he could improve with a second year under his belt. The real issue is we are going to have an inexperienced LT, then if we cut Colon your going to have two new guys on the left side whith limited experience at best. Is everyone comfortable with that senario?
With Starks and Foster most likely leaving who has experience on that line beside Pouncey? DeCastro, Beachum, Gilbert, and Adams are all inexperienced, I would think you need a vet beside Pouncey on that line.
Yeah, we have Legursky but he's only decent playing center, so Willie might end up manning that spot once the season starts. With Beachum as a backup you at least have some kind of depth.
Colon will be cut at some point. They do not save a whole lot even with a post June 1st cut. So why cut him now? The Steelers will see if he can lean up a little bit and get healthy. We are very lean at guard right now.
Here comes the BOOM!
I think colon sucks. You will never change my mind on that. He almost single handedly lost the philly game for us.
