Starks blew chunks last night on the left side.

Had to go with Colon. Starks just hasn't impressed me and it's my feeling he will be gone next season.

Neither of them have impressed me enough either in TC or preseason to be quite honest. Starks hasn't played all that well since the beginning of last season and I'm not sold on Colon yet either. What would be nice is if Mahan could play T - I'm totally up on this guy and feel he could be a tremendous asset on the line if Chukky gets anointed as the starting C.

I'm not sure either are ready to be a top notch tackle yet. However, there are two reasons why Colon has the advantage with me. First, Starks should be ahead in the learning curve because he is a two year starter, but he doesn't appear to be so. Second, and more importantly, if Colon had been knocked back like Starks last night, he would have goten mad, and wanted to knock somebody over. In other words, Colon has the fire that Starks seems to lack.

Marvel Smith should start at LT. Starks and Colon can battle for RT. I understand moving the guys around for experience, but enough is enough.

Colon - mystery of the pre-season is why Starks is playing so much at backup LT - no way he has the foot speed to protect Ben's blindside.

Starks or Essex will not make the opening day roster.

Won't Marvel Smith stay at LT?

Or did they shift him around?

If I had to choose one of the two RIGHT NOW, I'd like Colon. My colon has always done a good job cleaning out my system, so why not...
