    I would prefer McClendon starting at NT next year. I really like him.

    hampton needs to go, the blind commitment they have to him is getting ridiculous. When we all thought he was done a few years ago he had a heroic comeback and played lights out for a few more seasons, which is impressive considering players of that size dont just gradually decline they virtually fall off the map. Hes been a great player, hes a hall of fame caliber talent even though he probably wont ever get in....but his time here is done.

    Mcclendon, woods, fangupu, taamu, hood...someone needs to emerge

    Agreed. Starks has been a very good tackle for us. The OL always needs depth and having Starks, Adams, and Gilbert among the tackles gives us a very good chance of having two quality ones ready in September.

    I am not nearly as down on Hampton as most. He has been a great Steeler for most of his career. It is his time to go, but the idiot we drafted last year may make it necessary to keep Hampton for at least one more season. In fact, signing him back this year would signal to me that they do not plan on having Taamu available.

    Starks would be great for depth and to help Gilbert grow up. Starks played all 16 games last season. Ben was sacked 30 times last season. Not sure how many came from the blindside but I don't remember that many. But like I said they need to let Hampton go. Let these young guys do something.

    starks played very well last season....i think weve all been hard on starks, mostly because of the ridiculous contract he got a few years ago and the transisition tag fiasco, but hes a damn good player

    hampton used to be so explosive off the snap, even if it doesnt look like it theres a lot of raw force in a 350+ pound man with his physical strength comin at you at that speed, even if its just such a short distance between him and his blockers..hes lost that

    I seen Casey get put on his back more then once this past season. If Tomlin could plug him in as a pure back up that's cool, but he has a hard time with the vets vs young.

    If they bring back Hampton, that will be a sign that they really are not trying to put a competitive team on the field this season.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    The way Colbert talked there wasn't a franchise player on the team and they'd be silly to come back this year with the same crew and expect different results! Hmmmm! So explain why we keep bringing back old scrubs?
