  1. Mike Pouncey’s competitive fire is a beautiful thing, and it’d be real sweet to see him lining up next to his brother in the Black & Gold in ’11 and beyond.

    But if he goes higher than the 1.18, it’d be no insignificant factor that his identical twin brother Maurkice tore up NFL defensive fronts and even second and third level defenders to the tune of being named to the Pro Bowl and second team All Pro. That’s virtually unheard of from a rookie.

    Bring Mike P to the ‘Burgh – we’ll love what he brings.

  2. No that has happened quite a few times Rookies being honored in that way. But i gotta say from the View on the other side of the state if you had those brothers working together the interior of the Pitt line would be scary. Problem is all the ends and backers that tear up your tackles. If i was Pitt i would be looking for a Tackle and as much as it pains me to say this because i would like my team to snatch him up Camiri (spelling) from Wisco would fit in great with the Run first attitude in Pitt

  3. It’s clear the fins are thinking offense in the first two rounds. They’ve watched QB’s and RB’s so far. Nobody else. I think I heard a report about watching a wr but its clear they are looking at RB/QB.

  4. there were some interesting tid-bits included in this mornings one liners but what i want to know is whats up with the picture?
