    andy levitre is a top 5 guard, and eric wood is a top 6-7 center....urbik can be painfully average and their running game would still be good. he really kinda sucks

    bulaga is a guy i always liked a lot....but idk how i would have felt about a middle tier tackle prospect over a top tier c/g prospect given out situation at the time (hartwig)

    I can't see any scenario where you call drafting Pouncey a mistake. The need was there and the correct selection made. I am not sure if Wiezsniski (SIC) was still on the board when Pouncey was selected, but I may have given him some thought in lieu of Pouncey.

    Either way, we made the correct selection.

    I saw an article where Urbik gave up zero sacks this last season for the Bills. He may suck as you say, but how would he have looked in lieu of Kemo, Essex, Foster, and/ or Legs? These guys didn't really impress me as NFL grade starting material.

    Lance Zierlien said Urbik was better than Foster but Foster had more confidence. The lockout really messed things up, if Urbik paned out and we got DeCastro this yeah we'd be jumping for joy. I don't think Urbik was given time. Bruce Davis for the Steelers was a wasted pick.

    the lockout was from march 11-july 11

    urbik was released september 2010....he wasnt released cause the lockout messed things up, he was released because he was getting blasted off the ball, was slow off the snap, and had lead in his feet.

    Im glad hes servicable in buffalo, but that doesnt make me wish we kept him...he was a bad pick, a reach, and an underperformer overrated because of the school he played for. Completely a wasted pick, just like 90% of the picks in 09

    EDIT: lance zierlien lmao, disgruntled son of a fired oline coach...a radio/blog personality. i bet he thinks the steelers made all kinds of wrong moves. releasing urbik was 10x better than drafting him imo

    but who really cares right?........ decastro <3333

    I thought Isaac Redman would be a better RB in Bruce Arians offense than Mendenhall would be ... ... I still believe that!

    I drank the Sweed juice big time but I was wrong...

    I also thought Chad Henne would have a much better professional career.
