Thread: In case you missed it....

    In case you missed it....

    David DeCastro held Suh in check most of the game. Non-factor. This kid is living up to the billing. Our OL could be pretty good with a healthy Pouncey & Foster. Beachum has held his own at LT.
    Trade our 1/15 to SF for 1/29 & 2/56

    1) Kyle Fuller-CB-Va Tech
    2) Jordan Mathews-WR-Vandy
    2) Brandon Thomas-OL-Clemson
    3c) Kelsey Quarles-DE-South Carolina
    4) Lache Seastrunk-RB-Baylor
    5))Prince Shembo-OLB-Notre Dame
    5c) Khyri Thornton-DT-Southern Miss
    6) Aron Colvin-DB-Oklahoma
    6c)Max BulloughILB-Mich St
    7) Henry Josey-RB-Missouri

    I didn't notice DD, but I didn't notice Suh, either. I count that as a victory (without watching again in greater detail).

    I agree that DD has started to live up to his billing, but disagree on Beachum. I think he is, at best, a below average left tackle. He doesn't seem to have the strength or quickness needed. He's fine as a backup, but I'd prefer to see an upgrade at LT.

    His feet are actually very good. His height is not ideal. If he had Mike Adams size he would be a Pro Bowler. Having said that I agree. I would like a prototype LT and use Beachum as a super sub. Gilbert and Adams can battle for RT.

    DECASTRO HANDLES SUH

    David DeCastro didn't blink when asked how he would handle Detroit's defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. He seemed eager to take on one of the league's most-feared defenders.

    On Sunday, DeCastro earned something akin to a technical knockout over Suh in the Steelers' 37-27 victory at Heinz Field.

    DeCastro seldom allowed Suh near quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Suh didn't lay a hand on running back Le'Veon Bell, either. DeCastro's dominance was so complete that Suh didn't record a tackle, sack or pressure.

    Foster looks like a T and Beachum looks like a G. Not sure why we never tried to switch them up?

    Because Foster is mediocre at best playing Guard.

    Foster is a natural right tackle... He played there at Tennessee

    I think Foster has been top 20 OG this year. He is solid
