    He played admirably...but they scrapped all of the ZBS stuff too, who know how that would have turned out.

    Ben took the least beating ever last season, but that was this quick short offense not a brick wall of protection.....pouncey would have made a difference. They might have won a superbowl with hartwig but hartwig led the league in sacks given up for a center over the course of 5 year THREE years after he was out of football...that is an insane stat.

    Who knows...maybe bell would have ripped off a few longer runs, maybe ben wouldnt have thrown an interception, maybe they would have not needed succop to make a kick at the end of the year to make the playoffs.

    Pounceys value to the team took a beating in the eyes of the fans because his backup wasnt absolutely terrible

    In the event that the above happens.. if AB's replacement is able to produce as AB did...then, yea, I will say at that point that he is replaceable.

    Also pouncey is only 24...thats not even matured physically for an NFL offensive lineman. Hes already shown that he can play at a high level but there is legit room for improvement, especially under munchak

    Hell maybe they wouldnt have started 0-4
    I agree. We likely would have been better with a healthy MP... especially when you consider his back up came in off of the street with no prep time.

    I would actually complement not blame Brown for our loss of Wallace which long term will prove to be no loss at all.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    At least one analysis agrees with you. He was rated #1 WR in the league in "true receiving yards"....better than Megatron, Marshall, Green, Boldin.... ..etc. (will post later after I relocate it....)

    Addition through subtraction. MW'd bad/stupid mental state spread to other players.

    what are you trying to do, introduce logic into this discussion?
