Some think that Gilbert or Adams are already that LT.

I honestly can see Gilbert and Adams at the LT and RT spots, Pouncey and Decastro on the inside and either Colon or Foster at the other OG spot this coming September..........and have no problem with that.

The OL is solid. It needs time to gel.

Hopefully the OL coach who replaces Kugler is a good one... and doesn't bring in his own Jonathon "Rollerskates" Scott- who is now on his 5th team as a member of the mighty Bears OL.

I checked the Bills' forum and they are really high on Kraig Urbik who was released under Kugler before 2010 even started - to make way for Rollerskates I guess.

Basically under Kugler the first move the team made was to cut a 2nd year player who had showed some potential in his rookie season to make way for the worst T I have ever seen. Scott even started that year.

The Bills fans can't believe Urbik was signed for under 4M/yr as a G.

The OLiine is solid now? DeCastro looked like a punk and Adams need some work . im hoping both work out!

DeCastro only looks like a rookie against Atkins.

DeCastro was in his first or second start ever and going up against the best interior d-lineman in the NFL in Geno Atkins when he got punked. Give him some time.

Adams is going to be a very solid LT for years to come.

Same as any other position players don't play their best until their third or sometimes fourth year.

How many first rounders does an offensive line need?

Not sure if I want to move Adams to LT. He looks very comfortable at RT and his run blocking is excellent. His pass blocking is no doubt his weakness right now and I think Gilbert may be a better choice at LT next season.

I think Starks is the best LT on the team. It will be interesting to see what happens to the line.

I agree. But I don't know if the Steelers could keep him. Lewis, Foster and Foote are likely their top priority.

That is fair. There are 3 tackles and only 2 spots. Maybe it is time for the Gilbert and Adams era.

Salary cap implications will not allow the Steelers to cut Colon. There would be too much dead cap money.

The Steelers should have never given Woodley that ridiculous contract. He wasn't worth it then and he isn't worth it now.
