    pouncey works at left guard in practice

    Once again Willie Colon has a boo boo so pouncey worked at left guard in practice today Legursky will start at center if colon 's knee isn't better maybe ben shouldn't play lol it will be Starks/pouncey/legursky/foster-decastro/beachum personally i think if decastro is 100% i would move foster to rt tackle this is a total mess

    i hope the surprise isn't him setting new records for holding penalties...
    Seriosly tho, I think he will do OK. Need TE help on blocking, hit some short crossing patterns, run the ball well. It's not impossible to beat Ravens this weekend, just will be very difficult and demand Steelers play a mistake-free game. Eliminate the costly penalties and turnovers. The game against Ravens 2 weeks ago Steelers led all stats - but lost the game because of penalties and turnovers. Well, and Tomlin's crap decision to play an obviously injured QB. Ya, Batch may have been worse, but he was healthy.

    im not... legursky should be selling insurance not starting in the NFL.

    hope they use pistol or shotgun most of the time, otherwise Batch is gonna be killed by half time


    Who will last longer Batch or Troy? #sadbuttrue

    Me too. I think it is a good idea. Legursky has shown he is a much better center than guard and I am sure that Pouncey is a much better guard than Legursky.

    In my opinion, Legursky is a capable center, but a terrible guard. Pouncey on the other hand could most likely play any position on the line and look pretty good. I think its a pretty good move to at least venture into the option of shuffling them around a little if its needed. After all, the only alternative is playing a 7th round rookie or forcing DeCastro in there too soon.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Legs is a very capable back up center. He's stepped in a number of times and done well in that role, especially in the Super Bowl, where he played decent.

    This pretty much sums it up.
