I think he's trying to point out the need for a top LT. That clip was preseason against Tony Hills, who did stop him. Orakpo was talked up by the announcers but wasn't a factor in the game.

I'm still sticking with Earl Thomas as my 1st rounder, but if he is gone and Campbell, Bulaga, or Williams is there that would be my pick.

Maybe "briefly occupied him" would be a better way of putting it. Looked more like a rabbit versus a Rottweiler to me.

If you think surrounding Ben with an offensive line comprised of a bunch of late round draft picks is a good plan.......then you better not complain on mondays when he gets sacked 4-6 times.
Swing....and a miss.

Since when does offensive tackle mean the enitre line?

Starks got a 4 year, 20+ million deal and played good, albeit not great, last season and has shown steady improvement. Colon is our best lineman and doesn't get the credit that he deserves.

Now you want to throw another LT like Campbell into the mix? How is that going to play out? I know you weren't directing it specifically my way, but I've said that I'm fine with upgrading RG (A must IMO) and C (Should the opportunity arise).

It's not about getting caught up in flashy players. It's about realizing that when someone says we need offensive line help, it doesn't mean anywhere on the line. Cleveland needs a lot of help, but you won't see them going after a LT or C.

if i had the oppurtunity to ask tomlin just one question, it would be ...has colon ,or have you ever considered trying colon at guard. ...but anyway, from what i've read, colons agent seems to think he's one of the top RT's in the league so who knows what it would cost to keep him beyond this year. starks only got 10 mill in guaranteed money so after this year they could get rid of him if it goes uncapped.

Why get rid of Starks? He played well this year. Again, not great, but I think he made a lot of improvements. And the team has to like him to some extent otherwise they would have kept the tag on him if they weren't comfortable in locking him up long-temr.

That's still at least $5 million in dead money anyway.

when you say starks played well are you basing that off of this team or out of all the tasckles in the league.. we need a lineman in the first round...yea our line isnt as bad as everyone thinks but the fact is its not close to the top either...when you have a team like ours with major offensive weapons we need to get good lineman to make sure they utilize all our weapons

they gave him the contract to free up 3 mill which they used to extend miller. the reason the steelers had to pay an average linemen like he was a top 5 guy was because they haven't tried to upgrade the line for several years. they painted themselves into a corner and gave starks the upper hand in negotiations. should they do the same with colon ?
