    Starks Strikes out again

    After Last nights sorry performance of Max Starks ( giving up two sacks to give him a total of three ) he should be ashamed to even be smiling on T.V..

    Again Max looked confused at times and easily overwhelmed. Granted hes playing on the left side where he hasnt played for three years he still looks like a bum. A guy that big and strong is no good if he cant play football. He looked like he was lacking in technique and dosent seem like he has the necessary skill to play the O lines mose tough positon. By not being secure on the left side. ( Bens Blind Spot) You can bet your bottom dollar it wont help Ben anymore this year knowing that a jacka$$ like Starks is protecting his backside. With Cappizzi and Colon looking better everyday Starks should start playing better on film to showcase to other teams , if he can. Should Starks start this season it will be because either he gets it together before the season starts, if every other O lineman is hurt, or if he goes back to his natural right position. Which IM still not all the way comfortable with that. ANd if Tomlin starts Starks over another more skillfull back than that will be his first big Head Coaching Mistake.

    I have to agree. Max Starks is a huge guy and can't seem to block a defender for more than 2 seconds if that. I would love to see one of these young guys take the job away from Max. I think next year you will see us acquire O-linemen through FA or the draft.

    I guess he was shuffling the line around to see what he could do. Hell Max Starks can barely play at right let alone left. lol

    Smith started at LT and Colon started at RT....Then when Smith left the game Starks replaced him at LT....Tomlin just wanted to see how Starks could perform at LT just in case Smith ever got hurt for a serious amount of time...


    Hell Starks has been average at best at RT since being in the NFL......So we all know he can't play LT...lol....He just isn't athletic enough and has poor footwork to be a LT.....

    A man of his size and strength should be king of the hill in the trenches, we've been saying for a while IF, IF, IF he gets it together...looks like he just doesn't get it, maybe the rest of the OL needs to have a blanket party on his ***.

    Colon will win the starting right tackle job outright and before the pre-season is over Jason Capizzi might pass Starks on the depth chart if someone goes down. Game film don't lie and Coach Tomlin cannot be happy with what he sees from Starks. Worst part was he wasn't even getting pushed around by Green Bay's first string players, that was 2nd and 3rd stringers making Starks look bad! Just pitiful if you asked me.
