nope. i dont think its that simple. chargers started mcneil as a rookie and i believe he was a 4th rounder (???) who made the pro bowl on one of LT's best seasons. the year the saints made the nfcc game and were an offensive juggernaut, they did it with a rookie 4th round starter on the line.
the steelers just seem to be afraid to start a rookie at any position. hell, cowher would probably STILL
be grooming big ben, had maddox stayed healthy.
im not complaining. our system is proven. just sayin though...
