The bigger issue is why did we come into the season with only 6 viable NFL players up front? this ignores any potential contingency like season ending injury or someone not panning out. We had all off season to acquire and train a solid group of linemen that included some depth. Now with a little luck, Brown will work out, Adams just had a really bad game, and we could be up to 7 or 8 serviceable 'above the line' players.
    Being "Above the line" will all depend on high the line is set.

    1.15) Ryan Shazier - ILB/OLB
    2.46) Stephon Tuitt - DE
    3.97) Dri Archer - RB
    4.118 ) Martavis Bryant - WR
    5.157) Shaquille Richardson - CB
    6.173) Wesley Johnson - OT
    6.192) Jordan Zumwalt - ILB
    7.215) Daniel McCullers - DT
    7.230) Rob Blanchflower - TE

    I used to. Still think this is cheap writing short on insight and taking pot shots at an easy target. But, I guess I am in the minority of one.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Pouncey was replaced rather easily, IMO...and I don't see how our tackles would be playing any better if Pouncey was still in. If anything, I think we've seen that Pouncey has been somewhat overrated.

    For the record, you aren't the only one. I agree with you on this one.

    It is all subjective judgment IMO. Your take on it is as valid as any.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL
