DeCastro back
 
Sorry if this was already brought up in other threads.

The reports are saying that Foster has been taking snaps at RT, and that DeCastro is expected to make his regular season debut at RG Sunday.

Has anybody heard anything about how he looked in practice this week? He went through his first full practices this week. Am I being too optimistic to hope that he makes a positive contribution Sunday? He looked like he was tearing it up right before he got hurt.

Oh that's interesting, actually. I'm more excited now because I was reading it would be Starks - Pouncey - Foster - Beachum and Beachum kind of scares me. But, if Starks is playing his former position and David gets his regular season debut, we'd have a pretty solid line protecting Charlie.

I heard DeCastro is having trouble putting weight on his knee.

Open mouth, insert feces. That's what it's now becoming around here.

it hought we traded him to the raiders for rolondo mcclain.

it sure seems way too soon to bring him back.

maybe we are willing to sacrifice decastros knee to spare charlie batch his life. we are 1 snap away to seeing heath miller at qb, which might not be so bad, cause then he can block for himself and throw himself passes all day long.

Having him back would be a boon for an offense that will finally get the chance to play with some continuity in the QB position.

the Raiders are insisting we also throw in our two fastest players, DeMarcus Van Dyke and Mike Wallace in order to make that trade happen...

I hope this isn't true. I don't want to sacrifice DeCastro's future for Sunday or even next Sunday.

I know there is a huge push to put the best guys out there and also the "win at all costs" mentality, unfortunately it is also at the cost of the health of it's players.

Look at Troy and how many times he probably pushed himself back to early. He can't even get on the field anymore because something is troubling him. Hopefully he doesn't become a broken down man by the time he is 50 (if not before that) like a lot of players do.
