Default Shane Olivea

The Chargers released Shane Olivea today. A former Buckeye that has started since coming to the NFL as a 7th Round draft pick in 04. He is 26 years old and has a lot of upside. What do people think f this guy coming to the Burgh? I think he got injured last year (back).

This is why Scott Brown wrote the article he did in the Tribunue-Review this morning.

I think given a change of scenery that he will be a good tackle again. I think it would be smart to give him a chance, not a huge contract, but a short tender and see how he plays.

How about giving Colon a chance before you discard him? Olivea has been given 3 times the opportunity that Colon has been given and what did Olivea make of it? Apparently NOTHING because the Chargers no longer have any interest in him.

Why is it that some Steelers fans believe that so many other teams are downright ignorant when it comes to assessing the talent of their own players. No one knows Olivea better than the Chargers and they've decided to sit him curbside for pickup by a sanitation crew. Let's take their word for it, the guy is garbage.

not only is he a 7th round pick but he was allowed to start as a rookie??????????

wow. steeler players simply arent granted that luxory. its not the "steeler way". i'd like to se if some of our 3rd-7th round linemen could develop into something other than wasted picks. its hard for our back ups to catch playing time with pro bowlers such as faneca and hartings in front of them. unfortunately for any player drafted by the steelers, they are granted no learning curve by the fans.

and just ask max starks (sb starter and champion) if anybody is better than colon.

the grass is always greener.

If the Steelers keep Starks or draft an OT in the 1st round this year, I think that the Steelers will move Colon to LOG to take the place of Faneca. I think that Colon is not atheletic enough to keep him outside. Sounds to me like the Steelers arent gonna be able to keep Starks unless he accepts a undersized contract elsewhere and then they can match it. Just sounds like to me the way the NFL is now days that they just wasted their time putting this tender on him because if he doesnt sign a smaller type contract with someone that they can match, the contract will be taken out of his reach and torn up. Just doesnt seem very fair to me for Max.
