    Do you have a source or any other info on that Gilbert story. I'd like to know more about that whole thing.

    If that keeps him out of the lineup, it will also keep 4 other guys in the lineup and overall be a positive for the team.

    where's the rumor that they cut Colon and Hampton? Two that are more worthy of ending their Steeler careers. While typing this, Colon held down the caps lock and hampton ate the mouse. Oops, sorry.

    Cutting Colon will be cost prohibitive. He will be back next year.

    I don't get the love loss for Starks either. Not a trouble maker, doesn't make the news, well spoken, always represented the Steelers well and he's a decent to very good player at the tackle and guard spots.
    I understand Harrison being shown the door. I don't understand how they felt Colon was so valuable and Starks isn't. Maybe this is why Ben pops off once in a while, he might nt understand the back door politics either.

    I know someone that hangs out with Starks and he says Tomlin never liked him. I think Tomlin has a huge ego. Max never needed football to be rich and successful as he is a very smart person. Was voted young mortician of the year for the state of Florida as a teenager. Maybe Tomlin wants to feel intellectually superior to the players and having a guy around that can use bigger words than him is a dent to his ego.

    More fascinating than what Starks has done is what he's into. Starks, at 6-foot-8, 345 pounds, is the former president of the Florida Junior Morticians Association.


    "I saw my first dead body when I was 4," Starks said. "The toy room wasn't far from the morgue in my grandma's house. When I got older, I'd do pickups, go to hospices or morgues in the Kissimmee area. You move the body onto a cot and roll the body into the hearse. No big deal, really. I learned at a young age."


    It's no wonder Starks hasn't panicked against the likes of Mississippi State, Georgia and Florida State this season. It's almost impossible to faze Starks, who instead shocks you with his passion for Phantom of the Opera, Faust and Beethoven.


    Starks hopes to be a doctor, but a first-round draft choice is more likely. After all, six of his family members, including father Ross Browner, have played in the NFL.

    Thanks for sharing. Interesting. He has always appeared very articulate to me in listening to him speak.

    Starks will be back unless the team really believes that either GILBERT or ADAMS will start at LT.
    Starks has been available for 2 straight years with no teams showing interest. Don't think that will change this offseason

    Not so sure about that. He was coming off injuries each of the past two seasons leaving questions. He enters this offseason coming off a very good and injury free season. Steelers would be smart to sign him early on and leave Gilbert and Adams to fight it out at RT.
