Not sure if it's possible to make that switch with Decastro in but I would prefer Legs at C and Pouncey and Decastro at G's
    Starks was the best O-Lineman yesterday. Not even close. That is why he needs to stay for another two years.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I forget what Pittsburgh writer said this but he said, " Tomlin doesn't like Starks. " He eluded to it was Max personalitythat he doesn't like and it's been difficult for Tomlin to even have him on the team. It was either Bouchett or Cooky or one of the regulars we listen to or read their columns.

    I remember that there was a discussion of somebody on the coaching staff not liking starks, but I thought that it was BA, not Tomlin.

    I've always heard Arians referenced not Tomlin.

    Maybe it was Arians but I thought they said Tomlin. I take it you guys don't know why Arians then didn't care for Starks ? Maybe Arians wasn't happy that Max was protecting Ben ? Arians had no trouble not adjusting the offensive play calling when Ben was in trouble or the o-line was being out matched.
    I always thought Max did a good job, had a nice personality and carried himself well and was well spoken.

    You guys are phuckin D***s.

    The guy has major knee injury, fights back from it, practices for a few weeks, and gets thrown into the fire. Then he sucks and is a bust?

    You guys are plain phuckin D***s.

    That's DeBustro. Get it right!

    I thought it was Tomlin, but he's gotten over it by now.

    I think it had something to do with Colbert tagging Max when Tomlin didn't want him. Despite the tag, Tomlin allowed Colon to beat him out and take his spot at RT. Essentially Tomlin was benching the 2nd highest paid player on the team.

    I never understood the beef. Was it a Tomlin/Colbert power struggle? Did Max tell them he'd negotiate a long term deal and not sign the 1 year contract? Did Tomlin just think he was a lazy oaf back then? Or was Tomlin just a bad judge of OLine talent - Tomlin was the one that liked Sean Mahan.
