Default Re: how good is Pouncey?

Pouncey is being swept into the Pro Bowl this year on reputation alone, and I don't think he's earned it this year. From the AFC alone, Nick Mangold, Alex Mack, Chris Myers, and his own brother are better centers, as well as Matt Birk, who has had injury issues this year (although, so has Mangold). Here's an article to help myopic Steeler fans get a better sense of perspective. It was a hard pill for me to swallow at first when I realized that Pouncey only looks all-world in comparison to the line play we've been used to for the past half a decade, but then I actually started paying attention to other centers and...well, he may be more athletic than most centers, but that doesn't make him better.
