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.



    Never argue with stupid people.
    They will drag you down to their level
    and then sick beat you with their experience.
