1.) He was drafted by the Steelers in the first round. (Everyone assumes that means you are good).
Well thats just not true. Ask Evander Hood, ive loathed him since day one but hes become (and for good reason) a whipping boy on the defensive side of the ball and is a big time bust
2.) He plays center for the Pittsburgh Steelers (Long tradition of fine center play - Webster, Dirt, Hartings.)
He played center just fine, i was very excited to see him in Bicknells system. You are right hes terrific at the second level, which is why ive been a long time fan of moving him to guard. But this statement isnt really true, you can ask Sean Mahan and Justin Hartwig if the fans ever made them feel better than they really were
3.) He had a good start of his career, so everyone assumes he continued to develop but I am not so sure he did.)
I would give you this, but that doesnt mean hes a worse player than he was.
I am glad they plan on keeping pouncey another year, I think hes a great player...not the best center in the league but one hell of an athlete for an interior oline. Ideally id play him at LG, that should have been his spot since day one given his thin lower body but when you have Justin Hartwig to beat out you do it with ease
I like Wallace, glad they brought him back...if pouncey commands top dollar next year they have some insurance at the position
