    I thought this was an interesting quote:

    "Decastro is a clumsy oaf" - Pouncey's ACL

    Hopefully there's no dissension this season...

    He's probably a league average RT. I'd like to see a bit more consistency from him, but he is part of a line that did a pretty credible job at the end of last season. I ultimately think that Adams has more upside at RT - he's the better run blocker, and if Muchak can work on his pass protection, I'm holding out hope that he could be the long term solution.

    Gilbert is a middle of the pack tackle, but i think Adams will be the future at RT. Munchak worked magic before, hes got the clay now he just has to sculpt it.

    Very excited to see the foster/Pouncey/decastro interior, it will definitely make the tackles job easier

    I think the main problem with Adams is him keeping a fire in his belly and being able to stay focused through a whole game let alone a whole season. I don't think Adams wants to be great. I think he is ok with being enough. That is the main problem with him, few can deny the guys physical skills. What is scary is physically Adams could be one of the most dominating RTs in the NFL. Can Munchak be the first to light that fire and keep it lit? Man, I hope so.

    If you want to keep a fire in your belly, it's probably not a good idea to take a knife to the stomach.

    probably true... Gilbert was awful 2 years ago so improving on that doesn't make him much more than slightly average last year IMO.

    Adams may have upside but he tanked in that Minnesota game. I want to believe it was jetlag though because he looked like a zombie. I blame the coaches on that one cause clearly he was off that game.
