    The defender had his hand on DD before he dove at Pouncey. So DD had to know where the defefnder was and he didn't aim anywhere near him. I really hope someone asks DD WTF he was doing cause I've rewatched it 10 times and can't figure it out whatsoever.

    Did DeCastro's right foot get hit by Gilbert's left foot, causing him to lose him balance?

    I can't imagine any other reason he would be going down so awkwardly and aimlessly.

    Jealousy................ DD wants to be the best Offensive player on the worst O-line in the NFL and Poucey was in his way.

    Yup. He was trying to chop the defender. Didn't do it very well, but it succeeded in taking out Pouncey.

    Guess Gilby isn't the only one who can take out a teammate.

    Was DD expecting Pouncey to flow to his left while Pouncey was pushing up the field so the defender was not where DD was expecting him to be? I couldnt believe the replay when I saw it because it looked so bad. Like intention sabotage.

    I guarantee it was not sabotage. DD looked devastated. He was guessing. plain and simple

    I think that's the only defensible position. They are all flowing left and then Pouncey stops him and holds him up. The only thing could be DD was aiming for where he thought the defender was going and he didn't expect Pouncey to stop the flow.
