Which is why this thread started, he is not there yet. Sorta a gift.

Are these Steelers games you are watching? I can't remember the last time a screen or long run even happened in a Steelers game, except when we were on defense. Just to put this whole thing in perspective, Pouncey leads the AFC in center voting and Jeff Saturday in the NFC. Saturday was just benched......shows how much that means. Legs isn't any worse at center.

A " Great Player " is something many players set out to achieve and very few do. Great Players are the Mel Blounts, Hines Wards, Joe Greenes, Darmonti Dawsons just to name a few.

Pouncey is good, but far from " Great "
I'm with you big time on this.
The adjective "great" is so overused nowadays it doesn' t mean much.
Plus, if we have so many great players why are we eliminated from the playoffs?

I agree on this one. Normally i'm the first one to call for a Steeler to be recognized as the best at our position, but i'm not buying.
Constantly injured and got mowed down dozens and dozens of times this year and he's also not even as good as his brother.
I think he's "good", even a better grade than "good" but i certainly don't see what we've seen from some of the great centers around the NFL over the past decade who were/are light years better.

Pouncey's a stud. Still developing. I agree he is not "great" but who is better in the AFC? I think he's a top 3 center reagrdless so the Pro Bowl is warranted.

Oh nooo another ***** that can't stop crying. Maurkice Pouncey is one of the best interior linemen in the league and he is only going to get better. You can cry about it all the way to his HoF induction.

Dawson took 4 years to get to a Probowl. Pouncey has already been to 2.

Pouncey is a future HoF. Cry about someone else.
