"Before you can win a game, you have to not lose it." -- Chuck Noll
A couple years back (2009 I think) he went on a streak where he wasn't letting anyone touch Ben and he was going up against some of the best pass rushers in the league on a weekly basis.
I think fans kind of treat Starks like Wally. He got tagged that one year and signed for an enormous amount for a year, then Tomlin liked Colon better for some reason and everyone turned on Max. I don't think Max ever did anything wrong other than get a bigger contract than the Steelers intended and the fans have held it against him forever.
And then on top of it, Max is one of the nicest/gentlest guys on the planet. And I think people take him not being mean/nasty as him being soft/inadequate which just isn't true. He's still very good. In fact if he had a mean streak, I bet everyone would think he was one of the best tackles on the planet.
The niceness takes away his edge.
also if so much pressure is coming from the inside, why don't you beat up on pouncey and colon the way you do foster? According to some reading I have done the RG spot is the hardest spot along the interior because they usually face the opposing teams best inside rusher while the LG usually has help.
we will never agree on this issue. The problems of the OL are not the sole responsibility of Ramon Foster.
I like starks, we won 2 superbowls with him and he saved our season a couple of years ago.
doesn't change the fact he is an average LT. This is his 10th year in the league. His best days are behind him.
Who was our left tackles prior to Starks ? Was it Marvel Smith and a couple of guys in between Smith and Starks ?
they tried to roll jonathon scott out there at one time. That sure didn't work.
I guess it was marvel before max. I hope they bring max back, as he is the best option.
