    Bob Labriola: Guy Whimper probably close the door to Starks.

    He said on twitter:

    Bob Labriola‏@BobLabriola

    Steelers sign a veteran OT -- Guy Whimper -- which probably closes the door on Max Starks.

    It will be more fun when I'm not the one who has to lose

    Do not know where I go or what do once there

    Yeah, I think Guy Smiley would have added a much more positive attitude in the locker room.

    Exactly... I mean Lynn Swann (on any other team) would have gotten many one-liners from all of us... but, instead, we all thought, "aah... graceful...swan"..

    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.

    But he can't run block to save his life. He can't move in space.

    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?
