Pouncey selected as All-Pro


Mark Kaboly | Tribune-Review

Maurkice Pouncey had some real good games this year (Oakland, Philadelphia, Giants) but also had some stinkers as well (Jets and San Diego although he played guard against Chargers).

Pouncey had a solid year. Nothing more and nothing less. But an All-Pro season? Well, that’s debatable.

Pouncey was selected as to the 2nd team All-Pro center behind Seattle’s Max Unger.

Pouncey was hurt for part of the year and the Steelers running game wasn’t very good at all, so it is hard to be able to put together a good argument for Pouncey over some other centers around the league.

For my money, I like Houston’s Chris Myers and Minnesota’s John Sullivan and even Miami’s Mike Pouncey ahead of Maurkice Pouncey but when you do what Maurkice Pouncey did his rookie year, you reap benefits for years to come.

I will say this though: When Maurkice Pouncey is healthy, there are few that are better than him in the NFL.
