If not, i guess Legursky back at center and who knows at RG?

Hey - 1 less turnover away from winning the SB without our starting center. IMHO we are going to spread them out anyways. If there were any doubts save the guy - don't need to compound the injury because its the Ravens - we can win without him - we were doing it for how many years before him.

the middle of the o-line was more punch with Pouncey in there.

Essex can fill in for 1 game at Least...that's why they brought him back right?

When people start claiming Pouncey is injury prone we know who to blame.

I can't explain it but I've felt for a while now that our o-linemen seem to finish blocking in such a way that they are always falling forward after a block or they can't help but run into each other when making a lane - is it just me - something seems odd with the way they are finishing

Looks like he never got over the injury......

its the simple breaking down of scar tissue. i'd say no biggie.

essex is listed #1 on the depth chart for both center and guard. kinda suprising but i guess they feel more comfortable with that than mount cody lined up over legursky.

probably foster at RG. although they could try essex at C. i believe they have him listed as a backup C.

I believe Essex would start at C with Legursky remaining at G, but who knows what they would *actually* do.

well if he's really not ready to go yet i'd say sit him. i'd rather have him healthy in the long run than risk a season ending injury in week 1

And the Rats would love to be the ones to knock him out.

Dulac is pushing Ed to be the next great crap stirrer on the PPG.

He was the one saying Colon would be moved to guard too.

It would be tragic if Cody fell on the ankle. He must carry 200 lbs on his gut alone. Whudda freekin slob.

Legursky got bowled over or flat out missed several blocks playing center when I watched his preseason starts.Yeah - I was looking right at him, "who the **** blew that block?" - up the gut pressure in ben's face, he hates that - - he can dance around on the edges, but the middle has to hold up.

Pouncey will play - - don't listen to the hacks selling papers "iffy" my ass.

Tomlin said they're all good to go.
