Well with a third string center we gave up a fraction of the amount of sacks by the 2nd half of the season. Sounds like improvement to me.
Isnt DD the guy who's missed nearly 50% of his career thus far due to injury??
careful labeling pouncy a injury prone cause an injury to DD where he misses a good amount of games will earn him the same label.
This is true. It's smaller sampling though. With DD, we are talking about a singular injury. If we are going to call that "Injury prone"..then 99% of the players on the team should be classified as such.
If DD suffers additional injuries over the next few years, then we can label him injury prone (as Pouncey has been).
Irregardless of the injury prone talk, what would be the Steelers back up plan if Pouncey is indeed traded? Velasco is unsigned and coming off injury. Wallace was good the last few games he played but they better be real confident in him to jettison a solid starter. I think its unrealistic imo.
