I say let him play at least a half or even 1 quarter. Giving up 8 sacks is ridiculous, hell give the guy a shot to earn the money we're giving him. If he blows, then yank him.

I couldn't agree more with your comment Marvel hasn't done anything in the last 3 seasons. All he's done is consistantly get burned and pancaked on the left side even when he had faneca to his right. Lets get Max in there and start giving this team of great playmakers some time!

Problem is that Starks might not be a better pass blocker. He has longer arms to keep guys away initially, but with his slow feet, they ususally run around him.

I seem to remember both Starks and Colon having problems with speed rushers like Terrel Suggs. If somehow Starks could play with the quickness and intensity of Colon.....he would be an all pro. Instead, it looks like they are both just mediocre RT's.

Will probably see Tony Hills competing for RT spot next season. He has the athleticism and size, but just not strong enough physically and technically yet.

I couldnt disagree more! 3 seasons ago, Marvel Smith collected a Super Bowl Ring and a trip to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii for his play.

I agree he looked bad last season because of his back injury. Max Starks is a matador.
