So far I've said Pouncey was a superior center in every aspect than Hartwig - correct

And you can't put these together at why Pouncey was given a chance to compete at C from the start? With as long as you've been a Steelers fan, how many times has a rookie just came in and started from day 1? When was the last time? Casey Hampton?

The Steelers don't give their rooks a fair shot to take a vets job from the get go. Sanders and Brown were superior to Randle El and youtube sensation Arnaz Batlte from day 1 yet they weren't even given real playing time until mid season.

And yet once again training camp(where jobs are won and lost) hadn't even started yet when the article you posted was written. IT was still a month away. Hartings was recovering from shoulder surgery during OTA's.


And once again this is from your source.

t may also be an indication that the Steelers are keeping an open mind when it comes to Pouncey, and that he could challenge two incumbents along the offensive line.
I guess being open minded is now tantamount to injured.

this part sounds alot like dumper, me me me me,,, im always right the front office doesnt know their dick from a whole in the wall.. blah blah blah...

its in the past ladies


this thread is about sylvester... as long as whoever is lb is making plays i'll be happy and not question the coaching staff over everything..


yeah vets get extra treatment its called loyalty, maybe sylvester hasnt out practiced farrior. maybe the coaches dont think he is ready yet

Agreed. I'm not a Foote hater, rather I'm hoping the young talent can rise up enough to supplant a 2nd string vet at this point.

oh yea same here - love the guy - certainly has contributed to the success. coudnt ask for a better vet. If Aaron Smith gets hurt again - I'll be developing those same feelings for him very quickly. On the fence about him being reinstated. I'm sure Ziggy has done enough to warrant considerable rotation time at the least.

Just keeping my fingers crossed for a healthy year

If Foote is cut, then the Steelers will quickly be in the market for 2 new LBs after Farrior retires, and we will then have NO depth at the ILB position, added to the looming retirement of James Harrison and the need to find a new backup OLB assuming Jason Worilds is actually the answer at that spot.

First off thanks for getting this thread back on topic... Too much bickering in here.

Now I think Foote has had a really good camp, from what I've seen. I would like to Syvester step up, but can't say I have seen him much...

My guess is that Farrior is gone after this year, and either Foote or SS takes his place. My hope it's SS because he is cheaper.

I think he is the number one guy and the heir apparent...I still think Foote is going to get cut. He cost too much money and some of the young guys seem to be just as good or better.
