Why is it conceded that Pouncey will start at guard vs center. I know what coach Tomlin stated at the press conference, but if I remember correctly, both Manhan and Hartwig was told the same thing when they came in. And both men started at center game 1st. Now if Pouncey can attend all the OTA and get signed on time, why canít he start at center day one?
Hartwig is serviceable, but one of the reasons the Steelers running game was struggled in recent seasons is because they have got the push in the middle of the line, and in some cases have been pushed back into the ball carriers.
If the Steelers are serious about running the ball, we canít have our center getting plow back into the backfield.
My projected starters: would be: (LT) Starks, (LG) Kemo, (C) Pouncey, (RG) Foster,(RT) Colon. With primary backups being: Hartwig or Legursky at center, Urbik as guard, Essex and swing guard tackle, and Scott at tackle.
