Default Whats your O line predictions for Game 1?

LT: GILBERT
LG: FOSTER?
C: POUNCEY
RG: DECASTRO
RT: COLON

ESSEX? LEGUrSKY main back ups ?



by the time super bowl rolls around
LT: ADAMS
LG: COLON
C: POUNCEY
RG: DECASTRO
RT: GIBERT

contributing back ups essex, legursky


whats the deal with max starks? and jon scott? prefer to not see scott on the field unless its in a blow out


trying to think if im missing anyone here

the o line is going to be the difference if were filet or rotted meat

TE:
MILLER
POPE
SAUNDERS probably moves to 2 after his suspension


PAUELSON sounds like an H Back


would like to see lyons contribute this year.. has the size to be a major threat in the red zone

hopefully dj isnt back this year.. not sure his contract stuff though

edit: found it
On April 11th 2012 the Steelers signed Johnson to a one-year, $1.26 million contract.


consider dj was a 7th round pick hes contributed a decent amount.... i guess

i think your first scenario is most likely, with the OSU kid working in during the season....

consistency on the line is huge. if adams doesn't start in the beginning of the season, he's not going to, barring injury.

with that said, he does have a chance of winning a starting job. pouncey did it his rookie season, there's no reason why adams can't.

Pouncey was a first round pick, and Justin Hartwig was not only terrible, but injured. Adams has to beat out a second round pick that is actually good. It doesn't seem very likely that Adams is a day one starter. And I think that unless Gilbert or Colon get injured or struggle significantly, he probably won't start this year. He'll get some playing time most likely, but installing him into the lineup year one is not a necessity, so I wouldn't think the Steelers are in a rush. We'll see though. I think the OP's original starting 5 is probably the most likely scenario.

fire line up with adams, essex, and legursky playing as back ups defintely is a pretty solid line up..


if adams comes in and plays like an all pro
and we get line up 2.

then our o line is slap your momma in the mouth good.. with 3 solid back ups .

true but colon has started 1 game in the last 2 years. I don't think it's unrealistic that he can win the RG spot over willie.

i know he probably wants to stay at LT, but if he's thrown an opportunity to play RT and win a starting job, he would be stupid not to jump at the chance. even though he's a 2nd rounder, he is regarded as 1st round talent. He has a chance is all I'm saying. Might not be the best chance, but he has a realistic one.

consistency is overrated - see our 2 SB wins with patchwork lines!!!

kidding, sort of. i don't like 2 rooks week on on the OLINE - that is just my gut. Adams will have a chance to win the job from Colon, who i really think sucks. But a sucky veteran may be the better start than a 2nd rookie on that same line, week 1 in Sept

Week 1 - Gilbert, Foster, Pouncey, Decastro, Colon

Changes, IMO, will happen due to injury, not performance.

Super Bowl - Adams, Decastro, Pouncey, Colon, Gilbert

Bound to be an injury. Just our luck. ALL guesses of course.

Not a prediction, but a hope: Adams, ????, Pouncey, DeCastro, Gilbert. I put the question marks in there because I'd rather see Colon provide needed depth at tackle, and I'd like to see someone else up and prove themselves at guard. I could equally well see DeCastro at LG.

I don't see why Adams can't compete for a starting position. Adams has first round talent, and Colon is only an average NFL starter - in my opinion, of course.
