I'll agree with this year not being great for Gilbert, but I think a lot of it has to do with the injuries and the Steelers planning in preseason to anoint Adams as the opening day LT.
All the fanboys that got on the Adams bandwagon in the preseason are now hating on the guy. I thought that all along it would be better for him to learn at RT instead of Ben's blind side. I think that if Gilbert is given the chance to be the LT of the future, that he can.
I've been disgruntled about the lack of O line talent for around 7 years now and am really excited at the prospects of Decastro, Pouncey, Colon, Gilbert, Adams, Foster and Beechum. Although I think Foster goes in free agency next season.
