Default Max Starks Had A Bad Game...

I hav'ent seen an O-lineman go totally goofy like that in a while... He looked more out of place on that left side than Stefan Logan would have at the Left Tackle position...
Starks started to make me nervous yesterday...

I think Starks has had a decent year. He played very well against Jared Allen. He has gotten better at pass blocking good rushers, but a pure speed rusher (see Mathews) still gets him.

Max had a bad game, but he has been solid most of this year. He got beat by speed against the Pack. Not alot of 6'7 340 lb guys would have done much better. IMO

I'm not saying he should be benched or anything crazy like that...just that he needs a kick in the butt to get back to playing well

He had a bad game...it happens...Matthews was all over him

But I also agree he had a phenomenal game at shutting down Allen (and Dumervil, for that matter).

He had a bad game. He's been pretty good overall all season though. And he should have gotten a lot more help from the running backs. Moore didn't help him at all back there, and many times Arians still went to the no back set even though the Oline kept getting beat on Ben's blindside.

Max Starks is a right tackle, he doesnt belong on the left side... But i am pleased with his performance... if we could get that Faneca, Dawson, Hartings, caliber player on that left side, i really believe the line can be bolstered up.... Overall Ben holds on to the ball so it does make the line look bad at times, but then again at times the line flat out sucks!

If a miracle can happen, and we get in the post season some how... I would not want to play Big Ben and this offense, they just anihalated the number 2 d against the run and 3 d against the pass.... But i do know we run the same D, so big ben had a clear advantage going in

I so wanted to punch Max right in the head yesterday, but everyone has a bad game or two per season and in his defense, that was one of his few crappy performances this year. Overall, I think the big guy has played the best out of all our OL'men.
