Yes, but some may forget that Starks lost his RT job to Willie Colon due to his poor play and not living up to his potential. Somehow the Steelers didn't kick Starks to the curb and he became a starting LT.

So, Starks loses his job to a late round pick from Hofstra and he wasn't declared a bust and fans didn't clamour for his release. Max Starks was fortunate not a lot of bloggers were tweeting back then.
