    Steelers' DeCastro struggling physically

    http://m.espn.go.com/general/blogs/b...north&id=51983

    DeCastro failed to beat Foster for the starting RG spot. This should turn into an interesting battle and a good situation for the Steelers
    It's no fun when the rabbit has the gun

    If Ramon Foster is beating out D. DeCastro for RG then the optimistic view I have for the O-line is gone.....I am hoping this is printed to light a fire under DeCastro's butt.......Plug in R Foster and I read where Adams isn't ready to start you have the same old O-Line that Sucked big time in the past.......

    its somewhat surprising but not really alarming. Hes a 6-5 guard that could overpower people in college, now hes gotta learn leveraging better being he is so tall. I think some real time game action will do him wonders

    I hope on hope that is true KTrain.....LT is critical for Us this season......Adams could be the stud we have been looking for.....All I meant was some friends at Latrobe told me Adams was struggling....

    DeCastro had some struggles early on but then I read he was stoning people the other day.........If I remember correctly Faneca didn't start until week 4 or 5 of his rookie year......

    DeCastro is what, 22 years old?, and coming from a school where he was a true student athlete who wasn`t taking basket weaving courses. He has plenty of space on his frame to add muscle and I`m sure in the long run he`ll be okay. His current strong suit is in his movement skills, the power will come.

    I wouldn't be suprised if DeCastro, Luck and the others from Stanford turn out to be busts. It's only fitting.

    Luck's going to be a big bust. way too many expectations.

    I'm hoping DeCastro won't, he's a rookie big deal, he's getting use to the league.

    I do wonder why he fell though.
