you think that our backups play like starters? of course they dont. thats why they are backups. DLP wouldve never touched the starting lineup again but kreutz was still battling his mcl injury and lost the mean spirit it takes to play on the line.

you never see linemen smiling on TV because they have to flip that switch and turn into a monster on gameday. once the fuse burns out on that switcg its hard to go back. it happens with everybody on the line

How do you know DLP wouldnt have got playing time?...after the way Kreutz {the starter} was playing..it was a matter of time..Im glad.. Kreutz was done from the start.Im sure some backups never get the chance till an injury..but thats how some of the hard head coaches realize they were wrong..kinda like what happened here..

how do i know? DLP was playing worse than kreutz. if the coaches were more impressed by DLP then he wouldve remained the starter even after kreutz returned from his concussion.

Again go back and watch...DLP was playing better..i think the coaches gave Kreutz a chance and well.. he blew it...no push except for into Drew..I think he was bench bound and split because of it..all this i lost passion is for the birds...only thing he lost was his starting job..

I look at Kreutz was more of an insurance policy.

Sometimes coaches don't know how a player is going to do in a game and especially during the long season. So they get insurance. Unfortunately the insurance policy wasn't working out.

go back and watch what? the games that i already watched so i come back with the same opinion you have? DLP was our worst run blocker when he was in next to charles brown. the only reason he wasnt our worst pass protector is because brown and bushrod have played abismally the past few games.

he didnt lose his starting job. the only thing that suggests that is a group of fans that are trying to find drama in nothing

The worst?..not at center which is where he is heading...you said earlier the pressure was coming from the outside...and i agree..DLP..did fine with the exception of a few plays.

And he is all we got right now..so you better start warming up to him..lol..

I was there live Canton endzone seats ..so i got a good look when Kreutz initially went down...and then i watched DLP...and thought.. oh no here we go!...but that didnt happen and we went on to beat the Texans...I really find it odd, that our only 2 losses were with Kreuts at center...kinda strange huh..

congrats on going to the game. ive still only ever been to a few preseason games. however watching from home on TV i actually get to see the zoomed in version of tge game. while going to the game offers a better atmosphere, you really dont get a better view of the line
