Bob Labriola: Guy Whimper probably close the door to Starks.
He said on twitter:
Steelers sign a veteran OT -- Guy Whimper -- which probably closes the door on Max Starks.
You know what's even sadder?
I am a poet and for me spring does not exist
guy whimper? that has to be the worst football name ever....
I'm still waiting for the punchline...
stupid signing when starts is available.
Yeah, I think Guy Smiley would have added a much more positive attitude in the locker room.

guy whimper...??? c'mon... work with me here...
This guy is a dud and a camp body. Even the Jags didn't want him. The new line coach for the Steelers, Bicknell, worked with him when they were both at the Giants so that's a link. What exactly is it that the Steelers don't like about Starks?
About 50 lbs less than Max...can move and is familiar with Bicknell's blocking schemes...
Pretty dang simple. Max is a fat load who can't move. He is the epitome of the planet theory of blocking. He is effective in pass sets because he is so freaking huge. He's a planet.

And starks was the best, most durable lineman we've had the last two seasons. Doesn't say much for the others now does it?
