    He isn't a great fantasy QB but he is a great QB and a great leader. He just wins and his attitude and composure are through the roof. A minute after they lost to Atlanta in the playoffs last year the Wilson was asked if he was disappointed with the tough loss, his response:

    "I'm just happy and excited...looking forward to getting ready for next year so we can fix a few things and win a SB"

    Never said a bad word about NC State throwing him to the curb, never been in trouble, never had any drama...

    I'm extremely happy for Wilson. Everyone said he was too small but everywhere he has gone he was won AND occasionally lost with a smile on his face.
    I'm glad you like the guy and all...but it's way too early to call him great. That smothering D won a Super Bowl for him...not him. He is a solid QB, who may someday be a great one. But, he isn't elite at this stage in the game no matter how much you like him and his good attitude.

    I don't know whether anyone is calling him "elite" yet but he is as good as Ben was at that stage of his career. I think Ben is now "elite" so why can't Wilson grow into that? He doesn't have the physical presence that Ben does but he has a better head on his shoulders. I'd love to have Wilson sitting on our bench waiting to take over for Ben.

    Now, trading Pouncey for a solid NT or DE...that I would be all over.
    So trade the best player on your line who would be on the field EVERY snap the offense took for a 2 down player... seems smart.

    Decastro is the best on the line...its not really all that close.

    I do hope to see Pouncey and Decastro play together though

    Really? After one year you're gonna call him the best? Maybe at tearing his team mates ACL's. Some of you people are absolutely bat**** crazy. Pouncey is top 2-3 in the league at his position and arguably the best.

    It wouldn't surprise me if that is the eventual outcome, but I'd hate to keep seeing first rounders leave after their rookie deal expires. The success of this team was built on hitting in the first round and keeping the player for 8-10 years. We've already seen Mendenhall go, and he could easily be followed by Ziggy Hood, who even if he stays, is just a guy.

    If Pouncey leaves, I'd like to see a way for the Steelers to franchise and trade him. Even if you get a third round pick, it's better than waiting a year for a comp pick.

    Pouncey is top 10 and that even borderline due to the injuries. Decastro had a break out season last year and played brilliantly. Its amazing, here i thought pouncey was being overrated for so long that he was rated just fine at this point but people like you still calling him top 2 is insane.

    Decastro is awesome, pouncey is good. By the end of next season decastro will be a top 3 guard, he played like one for most of last season...just absolutely textbook after the first ravens game

    DD was crowned by a lot of people on this board so it makes sense that some view him as such. Pouncey came out and played at a high level from day 1 and since he didn't have much room to grow vs fall some people see him as expendable.

    I'm not one of those people and I doubt our FO views Pouncey as average like some on here do...

    Then again.. you have people putting faith in Moyer and saying Sweed had upside so who the hell knows. I think most of the evaluations on here are slanted for personal reasons.

    what's up DD? LOL...

    awesome is a stretch.. but I hope DD isn't awesome at taking out Pouncey next year and we can see what they look like together for a season.
