    I'll take Adams over Gilbert. The fact that Gilbert has taken out two of our starting linemen doesn't sit well with me. Plus Adams needs the reps, give them to him! Gilbert is a nice back up to have though.

    Pretty sure he rolled up Pouncey too. He's a teddy bear!

    I can. Who says he can't be a Left Tackle He was drafted as a Left Tackle and he will one for the Steelers probably as early as next year .He is playing Right Tackle because the alternitive is too scary Kelvin Beachum or John Malecki plus he needs to play to get used to the speed of the game. Players like Joe Thomas ,Matt Kalil and Jason Peters are rare . Max Starks was drafted as a Right Tackle. Mike Adams is on the rise he's doin fine .Rielly Reiff isn't starting for the lions he's not even on the field

    Again, with only 35 players under contract we have no cap room. Where would we find money for a real LT? And don't say cut Hampton, Foote, Allen or anyone else who isn't under contract next year.

    I think Adams will be ok and may even prove to be a good LT, he needs time at the position to prove himself and learn......But who could argue that if a Good PROVEN LT showed up in the Free Agency we wouldn't be crazy not to go after him......or in Dan Dierdorfs case her......

    Both Adams and Gilbert are capable of taking over LT next year...
