Default Re: Beachum will be part of rebuilt offensive line

Starks said he wants to return but only as a starter and there is no way he will do league minimum again. He took that two years in a row and since we can't afford to pay him what he is worth he will be playing for another team next season. I wish we could keep him but we won't. This is his last opportunity to get paid and I won't blame him when he takes it. Most teams left tackles are there second highest paid position. Ours played for league minimum for two years and was our most consistent and healthy lineman. He deserves to get paid.

He does deserve to get paid, but will any other team really take him? I mean they should, but it was the exact same situation last offseason and nobody offered him anything, that was the only reason he came back here. He seems to be really poorly thought-of by the rest of the league.

for as much as people have been raving about McKinnie or whoever on the Ravens for 2 solid performances - you def don't hear enough talk about Max Starks - I think I remember Troy Aikman as the last guy I heard from in regards to giving props to the fella - and obviously Ben

Now, if Starks is gone and Ben complains that his friend is gone - I'll take Ben's side on this one

I like the sounds of that offensive line. IF they can stay healthy, they can gel together and potentially be a strength of our team for years. I hate to be somewhat pessimistic though, but Gilbert's ability to stay healthy concerns the hell out of me. I can't remember a game that he's played in that he hasn't come hobbling off the field with some sort of injury. I know injuries are part of the game, but damn, dude has got it bad. Looks like we may have to use some mid to late round draft picks on the o-line to add some depth. How long is Legursky under contract? He's a solid backup at c/g.

decastro spent his career at stanford pulling to the left. thats what made him so intriguing. it gives the steelers more options in the run game.

If Beachum is a starter, then the Steelers are not serious about protecting Ben.

"But Beachum did well! He can be a starter!"

Yeah, and Jonathan Scott did well in 2010. Beachum is a backup.

I agree,

Beachum can be a better version of Trai Essex and have the position flexibility to back up 4 of the 5 OL spots.

but as a starter, no. I seriously hope we re-sign Ramon Foster to start at LG next season.

You keep saying this, and people keep reminding you that Foster was an URFA. And, Foster played very well. Beachum was a late-round pick... who played well.

I guess that the Saints weren't ever serious about protecting Drew Bree's, because they manned their OG spots with a couple of LATE-round picks: Carl Nicks & Jahri Evans.

Likewise, the Taperiots sure aren't concerned about winning, what with them starting a R6 QB & all.

Have you been watching the games at all? He played 5 games and he did a very good job and what makes you think that he will not improve next year
So decastro will be a beast because he was picked in the first round but beachum is a back up because he was picked in the 7th round

Yes, lets cut Colon and let Foster go and start the 7th rounder in their place. Jonathan Scott did a good job in 2010. How'd he do in 2011? Sometimes, guys do better the fewer games they play.
