Pulley held his own once he started. I didn't see many obvious breakdowns in pass protection ala Watt.
In my opinion, I think he's an upgrade at Center. Pulley did his job, but this position definitely needs upgrade + depth.

If Pouncey can be acquired for cheap to test drive, why not? He has proven to be a quality Center. He can also play Guard, in which he made the Pro Bowl for after surgery.

agreed.... signing Pouncey would be just another in a series of near desperation/put a bandaid/patch job on it, and whereas pretty much a guarantee that Pulley will improve.... dude is Vander Built, has the requisite mindset and measurables, and as it is not uncommon for an NFL rook to have to wait a year on his metrics, and....

that said, am not against an upgrade, or @least to bring in some competition on the IOL via the draft, and (much) earlier than later.... (if you're gonna do it, do it right, i.e. Price, Wynn, or.... ?)

Are you serious? If Mathieu is willing to take a paycut to join the Texans, why wouldn't Pouncey?

Mathieu is all about winning. Is Pouncey too? Or is he all about the benjamin?

We're replacing someone who has the same qualities as the guy replacing him who has an injury concern. I'm not too sure about this.

Cuz the Texans aren't offering Pouncey a contract ?
