    so if AB goes down (knock on wood) and we go 9-7 it means AB is replaceable or his replacement is better?

    I base my opinion on the play of Velasco. He stepped in nicely for Pouncey with no noticeable drop off in play.

    is pouncey 8 times better than those guys?
    would the team be better with one of those 1 million dollar centers and 2 good FA's or better just with pouncey?
    1) CB D Dennard
    2) OLB R Shazier
    3) DE J Ellis
    4) WR M Bryant
    5a) OG D Yankey
    5b) OLB J Tripp
    6a) RB D Archer
    6b) NT D McCullers
    7) WR J Janis

    we cant speculate how the season would have went if pouncey didnt get hurt....but i like to think they would be a better team having their best offesnvie linemen

    Hell maybe they wouldnt have started 0-4

    not sure if he's 8 times better but he is probably 8 times more valuable to our team than Velasco.

    I suspect that Munchak had input into this decision. I suspect that if Munchak had said "No, it's too much for a guy who's easily replaceable", we wouldn't have made the deal.

    13 mill bonus.. this contract is EXTREMELY friendly to the cap. If Worilds doesn't resign it isn't because of Pouncey. That's like blaming AB for losing Wallace...

    of course you don't.

    Most people on here don't understand why the FO and players speak so highly of him
