About Mike Pounceys so called "great year"

The herald says he's graded out well and he's happy with things

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/dolphins_in_depth/2015/11/mike-pouncey-is-have-a-pretty-great-year-he-signed-a-six-year52438-million-deal-that-included22-million-in-guaranteedmo.html

But isn't he the center? Isn't he directly responsible for giving up 4 points in games? Plays where he missed that QB guy I like to rag on (because he sucks) on a couple of snaps?

You can say it's just a couple of bad snaps. But its happened more than once, and it's a big part of his job...

Wouldn't it be awesome if he had a clause in his contract along the lines of he gets fined $100k for each point he allows?

This team is a joke, this franchise is in ruin and this season is lost, just like the past 20 seasons have been, I have been a fan for over 40 years and have had nothing to hang my hat on since the 70's. I will wait and see what we do this off season then prepare myself for yet another disappointing 2016.

RF- I agree that RT needs to develop more but considering he only had 18 starts in college and the OL has sucked since he got here, I think it's ridiculous to say he sucks. Mark Sanchez and a host of others suck but RT? really?

omg enough ripping our qb!!!! He's on pace for over 4000 yds and around 30 tds when is the last time we had a back to back 4000 yd passer?? Fix the defense and oline then talk qb please he isn't Rodgers but we have starters who actually deserve to be called out every week and positions that are a true liability

Your inside your own five yard line and your in shot gun formation. Can they try putting the QB under center once in a while and maybe you will reduce the number of missed snaps. Oh, they also need to lose the rag doll playing right tackle right now, a f***ing turnstile would do a better job blocking. I think the blindside hits are starting to get into Ryan's head.

The guys that want Tannehill out our the same ones that wanted to fire Don Shula for being 10-6. He is the best QB we have had in 20 years.. and that includes playing with the worst OL in the NFL. The problem is not Tannehill the problem is the Philbin/Ross consequences that Campbell is dealing with. From the screwed up drafts, to screwed up free agent signings, to all the general mismanagement of the club... and he is still going to throw for 4000 yards and 30 TDs.

Amen bro, u guys think the saints blame Brees or the Chargers blame rivers or flacco for the Ravens? Or is dalton Fitzpatrick and bridgewater great ???

He gave up 4 points so the fact that he's having a good year needs to be called into question? And he needs to be fined? Good god. Do you really only expect perfection? Are you constantly disappointed in life? I suppose we should fine Grimes everytime he gets beat for a touchdown, or should it be everytime he let's a professional NFL wide receiver catch a pass against him?
I'm sorry, this is just an immature emotional illogical posting, of course that's only my opinion.

PFF grades Pouncey as an above-average starter, the same grade as Landry, Matthews and Miller. Tannehill grades out to average starter.

Pouncey is NOT an Elite Center. Lucky him on payday. He is an average blocker and maybe adequate as a the scrimmage line caller. He is an Elite Guard. Let his "big" brother, Maurkice, be the Elite Center. At Guard, Mike would be getting paid at Elite status.
