    I haven't seen anything official on Pouncey retiring.

    Not yet.


    I would assume he will soon.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he came back for his final season, unless the Steelers tell him he will be released.

    I mean...


    If he comes back, I am not complaining too much. Getting those snaps under control though is critical. He has to work on those should he return.

    Pouncey did the same thing last year, then this year, I don't think another year will fix him at this point in his career. I think some of these long time gets quit working on their game like they used to. Now they just go through the motions. Give me a younger hungry player over this.:cool:

    If Pouncey wants to finish it out, I can live with that. You still draft a T and a C/G in the 2nd/3rd. Let him learn from Pouncey and play back up C/G. I'm sure he'll be needed at some point during the season anyway. Then in 2022 he takes over and becomes the next great Steelers center. No problem.

    Really liked what I saw from Leatherwood the other night. He moves really well.

    Great Analysis!

    I like the OT, RB, C plan, then get your franchise QB next draft.

    I think you need to think about depth and grooming future starters when it comes to Tyson Alualu and Vince Williams.

    No doubt. I would put the priority on the Vince side of things. Both need addressed though. Maybe the light will come on for Buggs or Carlos Davis. That would help a lot.
