Its basically a wash. Colon is smaller, but more active and battles his guy hard. Starks is bigger, longer arms, but seems to lack the intensity you would like to see.
If Starks is a better pass blocker then I woulde take that , because we can always run the opposite side of him. With Starks in there maybe Ben won't get treated like a rag doll, and will have some time to pass..we have to start limiting the sacks on Ben or he won't finish this season, much less a long career w/ us.
