Because he didn't wait his time on the Steelers' bench.  I think this speaks more about what personnel decisions were like under Bill.  He had his plan - don't play as a rookie unless there is absolutely no other option, but once you've served your time and your position opens up, you start and remain the starter until either your contract runs out or you retire.

Okobi should be friggin' grateful. How many backup-only type OLs get to stay in one place for as long as he did? Okobi should be grateful that, like most backup-quality OLs, he didn't bounce around the league on one-year contracts.

He's gonna retire rich and pretty much perfectly healthy, the result of playing oh, 10 games over the course of an 8- or 9-year career. At 30, if he wants. So shut up.

Black centers are subject to greater scrutiny and criticism than their white counterparts.

Unless we're talking hoops, then vice versa.
