After visiting with the Cowboys, Pouncey tweeted, "Headed back to Pittsburgh ... would be shocked if i wasn't in a dallas uniform nxt year!"

Then later, "To all the steelers fans i would love to be playing for the steelers and if i had a choice i would but it isnt my choice."

Is Pouncey getting overrated because of his brother's success? Seems like he isn't even as good of a prospect as his brother and people thought we reached with the pick last year (prior to his success of course).

I really wouldn't want to trade up in the first round for a guard.

You have to remember, Mike had a year at UF where he played D-line, so Maurkice was ahead of the curve.  He also had 2 and a half years at OC compared to Mike.  Physically, they're fucking clones.  I think Mike could certainly learn the OC position, but he can play OG now and maybe be a backup OC. 

1.9?  Wow, that seems awfully rich.  Maybe the Cowboys have a trade partner in the 1b range?  I can't see taking him top ten.

You gotta figure there's a trade-down, JJ loves to wheel and deal.

Wouldn't it be sweet to see the Cowboys deal back to the late 20's only to have the PS swoop in 1 pick ahead and nab Pouncey?  Damn, that would make my day.

If Pittsburgh drafts Mike, Maurkice might skip the kiss and go for the full crotch grab.

We suck because our drafts have been THE SUCK.
