you dont know that at allDoesn't change the fact that this guy was cut from Tennessee, and available for 2 weeks, with NO other NFL team even giving his a sniff...Including us.
This makes me happy happy happy!!
I'm glad they are starting Velasco but I don't think it is going to matter when it is all said and done. I don't see this team heading into a hostile environment for a Monday night game with a juiced up crowd and bringing home a victory. I keep reading articles stating that if the Steelers do this and do that, they can win this game. They have not been doing this or doing that in a long time so these articles are just grasping for straws.
The Steelers are going to need at least 3 turnovers just to stay in this game but we all know that turnovers is not something this team is capable of creating.

Velasco was not cut because he could not play. He was cut to save money.
And most teams do not have much interest in signing a starting offensive lineman a week before the season unless they have a gaping need, usually because of injury. Velasco and his agent probably had no interest in signing as a backup (sitting on the bench for a season does not get you a decent contract next year) and were waiting for such a hole to open. When Pouncey went down, Velasco was there to fill it.
The guy graded out very well last year, better than Pouncey. He is average to slightly above average at his position. Once he gets comfortable with the offense, he will not be too much of a drop off.
I hope you're right. I really do. I know considering our OL, he can't be any worse. But if Gilbert and Adams continue to play average to below average, then we will need maybe 4 NEW Starters next season on our OL. And all rookies would be a disaster. So we GOTTA spend MAJOR Buck next off season to get some QUALITY O-Linemen for Ben. Which means bye-bye to players like Troy-Ike-Kiesel-Sanders-Hood and Foote. We HAVE to spend at least 60-80 million on QUALITY O-linemen.
Ben deserves it.
