Wow, what a prick. So glad this guy is gone. Not only is Ben better, but our whole offense is out to take names and kick ASS. With Arians, it was all buddy-buddy, now he's raggin' on us. I get that you praise a player, but don't throw another, one who you coached, under the bus.

Now Maurkice has some fire to play with. I like that.

it might have just been some good natured ribbing. I'm not sure what kind of a relationship BA had with Pouncey

He's overrated because he's widely regarded as the best center in the league, mainly because people keep saying it, making even more people keep saying it. But he's not the best center in the league. Now I'm not with Pro Football Focus or whichever site it is that basically claims that he's average, but he has a reputation of being the absolute best center in the league when he's not. It's a fair question whether or not he's the best in the division, in fact, with Alex Mack.

I'd like to see him stay healthy late into the season, that is for sure

speaking of Pro Football Focus, they have Mike Pouncey rated as the #1 center in the NFL after Week 8. it'll be interesting to see if Mike beats out his twin this year in the All-Pro and Pro Bowl voting.

I wanted PITT to trade up for Mike, and they had a deal in place with MIA... and then, MIA opted to just take Mike themselves.

R1 & R3 (Cameron Heyward & Curtis Brown) for Mike... I wish. Heck, I'd have given up R1 & R2 (Heyward & Marcus Gilbert).

Starks* - Mike - Maurkice - DD - The Colon*

*(or, Adams)

Interesting, I didn't realize that. I suspect Maurkice would still win based on reputation (which is kind of weird to say for a 3rd year player). While the All-Pro team is a lot less swayed by popular opinion than the Pro Bowl is, it's also not immune to it, so so far it looks pretty good that Maurkice could be in line for his second first team All-Pro nod in a row.

we wouldn't have drafted decastro if we already had mike. prolly would have picked hightower. but i wouldn't complain about that either

with that said, ive hated miami ever since they picked him, and i'm glad they still suck
