I agree. Not worth rushing him back if he's not 100%, and risk him really screwing up his knee.

The reports said he went through a full practice this week, but am hard-pressed to dig up anything else about it on the web. The Post-Gazette doesn't have jack, just that he practiced.

I guess if we don't hear anything-- it wasn't too impressive.

Well.....at least we got Poalamlu and Antonio Brown back.

I sure hope not.

Yeah, it is not very reassuring that the only insurance policy we have behind Batch, is a guy who has been on the team for about a week. We might almost be better off with Miller at QB if that scenario played out.

I get the impression that Tomlin is really playing his cards close to his chest this week (or maybe I have not read enough news yet).

Poalamlu is supposedly ready to go, yet we have heard little or nothing about his status, or how he has looked in practice. Strange considering that he is one of the most popular players in the NFL and his return is one of the most anticipated moments this year (for us anyhow).

1. No, this was not mentioned in another thread. (Yea!!! someone who actually uses the search feature.)

2. I have not heard anythign about this.

3. I hope like hell that he is ready (110%)... because, I do NOT want him to injure that knee. He has a dozen Pro-Bowl-level years ahead of him.

4. I'd prefer that he wait until week 17.

5. If he is actually ready, as some of us have been saying:
Starks - The Colon - Pouncey - DD - Foster

I know, right?? And here, all this time, I was under the impression that everything that I've read on the internet was true!! But, this thread changes everything...if I can't trust the internets, then what can I trust? What if my entire perception of reality has been one gigantic lie!!

Maybe the plan is to start DeCastro at RG and just have him lay down, so as to use him as a speed bump. That would be a big upgrade at RG. Also, it shouldn't be very risky to his knee, especially with Gilbert out.

The reports are saying that Foster has been taking snaps at RT, and that DeCastro is expected to make his regular season debut at RG Sunday.


sounds like more bullshit.....what reports?

where's the link?


I've about had it with this board and all the bullshit that gets pased on as fact

anybody starting these garbage threads without links should be banned

This is reality...As good as Decastro may be in the future, right now he is a rookie with no starting NFL experience, coming in on week 13 after a major injury. He may be more of a liability than a savior right now.

How does one gain experience? With experience. If he is healthy, he needs to play. The best experience he can get is to experience the Seelers-Ravens rivalry as a rookie.

I would agree in week 1...Again its week 13, not sure he helps much now.
