    No Brainer. The Steelers got to sign Max back. No way will he play any worse than Adams at LT and Ben is very comfortable having Max protect his blind side.

    Maybe Ben was protesting to get Max back... both of them look like trash without each other

    We were a sieve with him "anchoring" the LT spot last year! If we brought him back, we would still be a sieve!

    Besides, Tomlin just talked about accountability. Bringing back some roody poo like Starks would only undermine that mindset.

    He can't possibly be worse than Adams.

    I agree... but I think Starks is Ben' binkie... his Linus blanket.

    Maybe... but I'm not so sure. Starks has been Adams bad this year on 2 teams. Maybe Starks plays for Ben but if he plays like he has this year you will see why he was released by 2 teams in 3 weeks.

    He's not. But if he is barely better (which I think is the case), it doesn't change the fact that our line sucks. I've suggested trying something completely new (exploring the possibility of Foster or Decastro stepping in there), and allowing that (if they can prove capable) to spark an attitude adjustment that could improve our line. Imagine if Decastro was able to pull off an Alan Faneca that one year, when he stepped up for the team and took over at LT. It would show leadership, sacrifice, AND AN URGENCY that could be infectious.

    That is the kind of change we need--a leadership lift. Not replacing a hot pile of $h!t with a warm pile of sh1+.

    Agreed with all of the above, but for some reason Ben and Max go together like Jenny and Forest
