Default Re: Steelers grooming new 'swing' tackle Starks

I like players that can play multi positions to.......but you need to have the players that can....When I look at Max Starks he is a RT.......He just doesn't have the footwork to be a LT....Now I do think its smart to try him out there since Marvel could go down at anytime with injury and the Steelers really have no other options at LT....I think I would trust Starks over Trai Essex....lol I like Willie Colon but he isn't a LT also.....I think the undrafted OT Jason Capizzi has some talent but still he is a rookie and I wouldn't trust an undrafted rookie to play LT...lol

Glad to see we have some flexibility with Starks. Hopefully he plays above the level that he played last year. Oh well, a fresh year and a new start is how I see it.

All i hope is that Starks plays well in the regular season because no matter what i think he is gone after this year, but he was a good player and was in on the best organization ever.

I agree, even if Starks starts and has a good season, there's Colon waiting, only one of those two will be on the team next year, both can start for many teams.

Yep. Not to mention, it can possibly free up a roster spot for a greater need.

A great way to raise money for charity would be to donate each time the "turnstile" lets someone through....Good bye world hunger
