I guess drafting a center to play center is definitely putting a square peg in a round hole.
They drafted a OC to play RG. Do you often talk without knowing the facts?

Pouncey may start his career at RG, but will be playing OC in 2 years at the most. Believe me Aussie knows his facts.

He is gonna start at RG, because the Center has to make all the O line calls and you normally dont want a rookie doing that until he gets experience. Dermonti Dawson played at Guard his 1st year.........its pretty common.

As for the Pouncey haters---Gerald McCoy said that he was the toughest interior lineman he played against in his college career......I think that is a decent enough reference.

OK - that post definitely convinces me that the front office definitely got it wrong.

Cant wait to see the corrections that you make for the rest of the picks that the FO are going to stuff up over the next rounds.

If you want to be like Iowa then you need to run the ball.

To run the ball you need interior blocking.

To block inside you need 2 guards and a center.

Enter Pouncey

It is impossible for a NFL center to play the position without a brain to date! Maurkice has a difficult challenge ahead unless our new center is moving to right guard immediately if not sooner!

Tackles are pretty useful as well. We can go back and forth like this all day if you want, but the fact is I think we got a very good play in Pouncey, and over all I am very happy, just could be happier.

i think most of the people don't get it. the last consistent center we had was jeff hartings. before that it was dermontti dawson. since hartings its been a revolving door or complete embarrassment. maybe we should of kept mahan? :chuckles: I say we put pouncey at guard and let the kid work. RG was a revolving door last year. time to close it and start making our oline even better.

I wanted Bulaga as well but am happy with Pouncey. Only thing I dont like about it is I may need to get a new sig cause Legursky will be effected.
