Probably because we watch from our couches, and because we don't know what the **** we're talking about. That's certainly a possibility.

Also, not only the Steelers like Colon, I recall many sports journalists echoeing the same sentiment over the past couple of years, especially last year after we lost him.

Every year its the same ole story! All the fans are worried, and then the o-line turns out just fine! Last year when colon got hurt everybody thought it was the end because he was gonna be out, now hes back and were not gonna be good because we have him? Let these guys get together and play and we will be just fine!

the best thing is if what the media is speculating is correct..

They bring back Big Flozell at RT and move Colon to RG ( He has stated he is not against and doesn't mind playing guard)

I'd even like to see then foster take over (late hit specialist but get whipped at the LOS) Keo at LG or atleast push him.

line would be decent then.

Seems Starks was super overweight and out of shape not Flozell actually it was more about money and starting.

I keep hearing about this kid from Nebraska, Williams, has been very good in camp, that he is nasty and a "mauler". If thats the case he could be a diamond in the rough and a good player for us down the road. I said this in the past, if our O L stays healthy and can play together, that continuity will make us a very good unit. Continuity among the players (starting the same 5 for the majority of the season) tends to overshadow any one players shortcomings.

This unit and the CB are my biggest concern for this team, but before I will label them better or worse, I want to see them in game action. I do hope to see Flo back...
