The Smell of Desperation

After their worst offseason in recent memory, the Pittsburgh Steelers are scrambling to find help for their offensive line --and when I say offensive, I mean offensive.  I won't bother going into detail because this O line doesn't even  pass the eyeball test.  Ben Roethlisberger has been abused in his first four games and is not likely to make it through the season unless he starts throwing the ball immediately while playing out of the shotgun.

After four games of thorough ineptitude, the Pitt front office decided to bring back one of the worst tackles in recent memory, Max Starks.  Mr. Starks does his best turnstile impersonation while the Rooneys do their best ATM impersonation.  I believe Starks has earned about $30MM over the past five years while being a mediocre tackle, at best.  He is now back in black and yellow after being released this past offseason.The fact that no one signed him is a good indication of the type of player he is and the type of contribution he'll make in Pittsburgh. 

Maybe Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says it best via Twitter:

"Not sure what Max Starks can contribute on the field yet, but the that locker room is already better off than it was, I can assure you that"

As a Baltimore Ravens fan, I am thrilled that the Steelers locker room has been improved with the addition of this towering hulk of a man.  Can't wait to see opposing defenses play "rag doll" with Pittsburgh QBs!
