    Have you seen much of Mike Pouncey’s play? I’ve seen several games of his, playing both center and guard.

    To me, he seems a bit overweight, and tends to plays a bit off balance at the point of attack. Like his brother, he looks like he knows what his assigments are, but doesn’t look like he executes as well. IMO, he might be a pretty good guard, but he’s nowhere’s near as good a player as his brother. Your thoughts?

    I read today that Woodson signed on with the Raiders to coach DBs which is an interesting choice for him. Have you heard anything or have ideas on who we might be looking at to take over the secondary?

    nope, not hearing any rumblings yet on a Horton replacement.

    as far as Mike Pouncey goes, his best position will be right guard. Just as athletic and strong, but nat as natural as Maurkice is. I still see him as can’t miss. Coaching will help Mike adept and he will be in better shape.
