Some good stuff, Flas!Originally Posted by Flasteel
I don't know if it is the coaching or the fact that Max Sucks just doesn't get it. But, saying that Max Sucks is "not sufficiently motivated" may be the understatement of the year.
And that's why I feel that if this worthless twerp can't get it together and win a starting job, then he needs to get launched. If he is making $6.9M and sitting on the bench and someone like Stapleton ends up getting launched to justify having Sucks around, I will be irate. That should also go for the rest of the Steeler Universe. Why should he be kept just to placate a lousy business decision by the FO if he won't start? I'd rather have someone around who tries hard and has more pride than talent than someone who is just collecting pay and wasting a roster spot.
When I think that the Steelers could have kept Faneca for a little more than Max Sucks under the same terms, that just makes me ill. At least Faneca can play and he would have been a pro about it if he knew the Steelers were just going to let him walk in the end. Max Sucks doesn't even have enough pride to be a quality NFL player and he knows the Steelers will let him walk at the end of the season at the latest. The Steelers should just swallow their pride and their contract and do this pile of scrap a favor and dump him now.
