Default Re: Tony Hills ready to start at RG

hills was considered to be 1st round talent but stock dropped due to two bad injuries in his college career. athleticism was always one of his high points, durability is the biggest concern. he could be more athletic than pouncey, it wouldn't surprise me. skill now, is a different story.

What makes you think that you know better than the o-line coach?

The Thump ain't no chump, matter of fact he is like Trump:
mad rhymes and sick beats.

Tony Hills is still the primary backup for left tackle.

Like the time I called Kraig Urbik being a bust as soon as we drafted him.

I feel sorry if you think the Steelers coaching staff is the know all end all of the NFL

And that proves what, again? He is the back up to a position already
manned by a below average starter to begin with, so what does
that make him? Below, below average?

I think he's indicating that the o-line coach is a better source than you (not the entire NFL). But I agree with you that it's laughable to think Hills is the best talent on the o-line. The coaches (not just Steelers coaches) try too hard to say something encouraging in the hopes it helps motivate certain guys. I'm still laughing about Colon being a top tackle in the league. I like the guy, but he isn't close to the top. Hills isn't close to being as talented as Pouncey. I'll root for the guy and hope he makes the team better, but that sh!t line didn't stick with me.

YOu may or may not have called Urbik a bust, but even if you did that's not exactly a huge accomplishment. Also keep in mind that the "bust" in question actually started a few games last year and is listed as the starting RG this year.

The Steelers coaching staff isn't the know all end all of the NFL; however, they certainly have more insight than you.

WOW, reading is fundamental

Our coach didn't say he had the most talent on the oline. He said he might be the most athletic.

"Tony is very athletic, maybe the most athletic guy in the group," .

No, Dan, the front office and ownership is infallible. They can't possibly
make bad decisions because they get paid to make those decisions. Like
when Isiah Thomas was paid to be GM for the Knicks. He must have only
made perfect decisions since that was his job.

Hey, you can't possibly know better than they do, since they are hired
for the job and you are not. Didn't you know? End of story. No other
possible options. Front office and ownership simply make perfect
decisions at all times and we aren't even allowed to question them.

I hated the Bruce Davis, Spaeth, Keenan Lewis, Sepvuleda, etc. picks.
But I couldn't possibly be right. How could I know better than the
front office? Not possible. They are perfect.
