I guess the main thing I'm pissed about is wasting all that money on Starks again. If we're going to keep giving him one-year deals and make him the highest-paid guy on the team, for that amount of money we could sign plenty of other guys to short-term deals and have a lot left over. If we're STILL not sure whether Starks is worth it in the long term, we ought just sack up and cut him loose by now.
Isn't that LT position the 2nd most important one on the offense?(with it being the QB's blindside et al)

LTs just don't grow on trees-which is why Dallas had no choice but to overpay Flozell Adams last year, despite him being 35 years old. Sure-he's a bonehead b/c of his abundance of false starts/game, but nonetheless he's done an excellent job being Romo's bodyguard.

For the most part-he's been very good(in previous years that is). Tas true though-he really **** the bed last year. Although to be fair, 3/4 of the team did so as well.
