Default Re: DeCastro Activated, Gilbert to IR (?)

Did anyone else think Beachum did okay at RT Sunday? He got burnt once or twice-- expected since he's a rookie with no playing time at all, but I thought he looked pretty serviceable, better than Mike Adams to be honest.

He did a much better job of keeping the pass rusher off his body and staying between the defender and the QB.

I think this was a good roster move and with Ben's return, this might give us a shot at making a come back of some kind.

I didn't have a chance at the end to even LOOK at Beachum because he negated two big Steelers offensive plays to get back into the game with 2 holding penalties as soon as he was inserted in the game. The big one that came back was the 33 yard gain to Heath Miller over the middle. The first 8 snaps that Beachum played, 2 of those 8 snaps he was called for holding.

After that, I watched the game through the cracks of me fingers while holding back my regurgitation reflex's!

Well you can check that 33 yard one and that was total chincy shit penalty you will find. He did alright.

not even close.

he ripped his knee to shreds like mendehall. if he plays now, he will struggle and 8 out of 10 people who come to messageboards and call raidio shows to vent will simply say he sucks and is a bust of a pick.



and beachum knows the job well enough. he especially knows when to hold to prevent getting the qb blown up. while he can fill in, in a pinch, he still looks like he needs 10-15 lbs added to that frame to be a starting RT on our team.

Q: Maybe I missed it, but what happened to Adams? Is he out? For how long?
