And that we will, unless of course he stinks it up this year.

we have pouncey this year. our running game sucks and ben is still getting sacked an average of 3X / game.

ben is getting rid of the ball quicker and off to his best career start. mendenhall is an upgrade but isnt going to be putting up m jones drew #'s behind this line.

is decastro going to be the saviour pouncey was SUPPOSED to be? time will tell, but its not like we were piling up the yardage in pre-season when he was healthy.

i DO agree that it all starts up front. we need to pay the youth weve drafted along the line. and get younger on defense (if you can get any younger than heyward/mcclendon/alameda who is still stuck on the bench, and ziggy hood who will be needing an extension as well.

you don't get it Tony

the hell with the running game - screw Redman and Dwyer - they are not 1st rate talent RB's anyway

We have Ben and he needs his receivers and O-line - I'd pay Wallace $100M TODAY because we need Ben to score 40 pts a game EVERY GAME for the next 5 years to have any chance at being competitive.

The defense is FINISHED - DONE! and there's no bringing it back unless we draft another Aaron Smith next year + 2 starting CB's

I believe next in line will be a STOUT and pure LT. None of this "he can play multiple positions, so we liked him" hoarse-shit. We need an ANIMAL of a left tackle in next years draft and it should come in the 1st or 2nd rounds. Our right side would be SET with DeCastro and Gilbert but Starks can't be our saving grace as long as Ben wants to ride it out. If anything, try Gilbert at LT and let him compete with next year's draft pick and allow Adams to man the RT position (he played well when he filled for Gilbert in Denver.)

This line was again, doomed from the start. We weren't even 2 games in and we were on 3,000 line rotations. Not sure what it's going to take to get this line back to 2004, 2005 caliber.

We could cut Ben too, saves us 10million probably. since we don't need Wallace or Pouncey, we really don't need Ben.lol

We should have plenty of cash next year with some added retooling due to age. Hopefully these guys who can't play up to the standard don't get the Aaron Smith pass for a year.

Wallace has already proven he is worth the contract. The problem is Wallace cant add 1+1, the 5million difference, after his agent, posse, and uncle same is a whopping 2million bucks. After cuts next year they will tag his ass anyway.

nah, i hear ya.

what wr missed all of camp but so far has more td's than the likes of high priced larry fitz and megatron?

mike wallace

and that is with heath miller on his team who is leading the league in TD's (tied with vernon davis) and outperforming rob porndonk gronkowski.

nobody said the passing game isnt a viable option especially with a qb counting 19 mil against the cap next year.

mendenhall, dwyer, and redman are all in the final year of their contract.

here the majority of the fans are concerned about the coaches and their schemes, not even realizing it is colbert and kahn steering the rooney's ship into 2013

.
now THAT is just stupid on so many different levels.

the FRIST rule in discussing capology is being able to take off the homer fanhat and looking at things objectively. sometimes teams are forced into making tough decisions very few of the fans are able to understand (think the texans wanted to dump eric winston or mario williams)?

Ben costs 19 mil against the cap next year, not the 10 mil in savings you would suggest because their is also the prorated (amortized) portion of his signing bonus that has already been restructured and pushed into the future twice.

that is a FAR cry than the situation wallace and pouncey find themselves in. wallace controls his own destiny in 2013 or becomes a top 5 paid wr for one year. pouncey finds himself in the same boat in 2014.

in 2013 you are looking at extending young guys or retaining the services of players like ike, troy, and heath.

while cutting guys like harrison and keisel may actually save 14.5 mil, it really only ammounts to $8mil in cap relief.
