guys like colon and flozell just hated everyone to hate them, but its not like this group is a bunch of softies
if the Steelers are going to the ZBS: Mad Max dosen't fix. But he will be missed:
Adams will eventually movs to LT but he's far from ready to make that move. The last thing I want is for the Steelers to move Adams before I get to see how he and DeCastro work together.
So yes Max will be missed, here's to hoping I'm wrong.

Funny how people just won't let the injury thing go. It be different if Gilbert were hurt every year he was here. But because he had that fluke injury to Decastro and then his own, now he wears a permanent label of "injury prone"??? I just don't get it.
Didn't Max sign with the Chargers?
The best protection Ben will have is a solid running game. That alone, will slow down theh pass rush and minimize the amount of hits Ben takes.
Starks missed half of training camp and still beat Gilbert for the starting LT position. Gilbert injured his ankle in week 6 and missed the rest of the season.
My only guess is your stats are from 2 years ago and from the RT position.
Yes they are from 2011... but the fact remains that as a rookie, thrust into a starting job because the incumbent had gotten injured, learning a completely knew system, and he graded out as the 13th best pass protecting tackle in the NFL. He got injured in 2012... Now he's healthy and in a system he's more familiar/comfortable with (he was in a zone blocking scheme a Florida).
