    Pouncey is literally the only jersey i own, I think hes a great player and id hate to see him go...that being said the play was a simple zone stretch, Pouncey's assignment is the mike lber. He needs to be quick off the ball, and get to the 2nd level. He didnt. Decastro does what the play calls for him to do... which is to chop the DT in the 0 gap, left by Pouncey. Maybe decastro should have pulled up, but the difference between decastro as a rookie and decastro this year is he wasnt thinking and he was just executing....its a rough game sometimes

    As I recall, Center was the least of our OL worries this season. Yet, we had a non-existent ability to stop the run, and almost no pass rush...mainly because we could no longer control the middle of the line. A difference maker NT makes more sense than a mild/moderate upgrade at a position that wasn't a problem for the Steelers this season.

    I do hope to see Pouncey and Decastro play together though
    I agree with you. DeCastro is able to manhandle DLmen. Pouncey doesn't manhandle anyone. Pouncey is technically sound...he is a solid center. But, DeCastro was very good this year...and should be very special.

    Exactly. If I had to choose between Decastro and Pouncey it would be DD 8 days out of 7.

    I'll reserve my judgement on a player until the year AFTER he tears out his teammates ACL

    I understand your sentiment... and agree it was FUBAR. I don't think it has any bearing on who is a better player at his respective position though.

    Others disagree with you and think his game will not translate well to the NFL. I am neutral on this, just throwing it out there.

    Rumours Houston is targeting Bortles....

    I agree.... I like what I'm seeing out of DD but its not like our RB is running through huge holes behind him. I don't care what that play called for... diving on Pouncey was a WTF moment

    Thats usually what happens when a small QB comes out of college... some say he will, some say he won't, and neither will admit they were wrong a few years later.
