    Even with a bad back, Smith is better than Max (and therefore starting).

    he is by far better than max and may be the best of the o-lineman but he is still just ok. if they do give him an extension it better be for cheap. i just dont want to see the steelers invest much in him

    work sux (didn't finish my thought).

    I was gonna say, assume the money would be similar or less than what we'd pay Max, I'm good with the signing... It would mean the team doesn't have to panick and overpay Max now to retain his services beyond this year.

    no doubt i definetly agree with that. it would be one less spot to fill on the o-line in next year's offseason.

    It would be very difficult to go into next offseason potentially losing Essex, Starks, and Marvel.

    that would be terrible. granted they are not the best o-lineman but having to replace 3 would be awful. im really hoping that next years draft is deep with o-lineman and there are some good fa's out there for not huge money.
