That would be a pretty good lineup, but I am still holding out hope that The Colon can come back next year at 100% and fill the LG role. As long as he is healthy (and not lined up in the neutral zone), he is one of our best Olinemen.
I agree: The Colon is a monster... when he is not getting a false start and/or a holding penalty. Oh...

Starks should eb resigned, but, even if he does not come back, the options are looking good. Heck, even if The Colon is released AND Ramon Foster leaves for greener pastures, the options are still looking good.

LT - Adams or Gilbert (or even Beachum)
LG - Beachum (or Gilbert)
OC - Pouncey
RG - DD
RT - Adams or Gilbert (or Beachum)

If Starks comes back, the depth is amazing... and the youngin's would be afforded the TIME to develop.

And, if The Colon also returns, that makes the depth even more amazing.

And, if Foster returns, as well, then the Steelers would have their "game-day eight" for the next five years locked up.
