    Sucks that both options at C will be coming off major leg injuries. It took DeCastro more than a season to come back from his.

    In that regard it is good that Pouncey's injury came early so he has longer to heal (if there is ever a good side of being injured)

    I love how steeler fans dog on all pro's and then fall in love with average players. Amazes me.
    I like Velasco, but he had no future at Center in Pittsburgh. He would have been a nice guard though.

    I agree with the last half anyway

    The backup is always the most popular guy in Pittsburgh. Meanwhile we complain about our best players. You don't have to agree, but it's true.

    I would say (it's worse) so for any player. Achilles sucks.

    I think Velasco has earned the chance to battle for the backup interior lineman position on this team.

    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    We have had some horrific luck with the interior of the O line starting with the Embernate injury in training camp.

    Basically... look at Worlids, dude was a bum but now he is an all pro.

    Pounvey didn't avoid DD so it shows he is injury prone.... and he also hasn't elevated his play so he is a bum
