Re: Cold Hard Football Facts - Steelers Need Left Guard
Kemo struggled this year, but I'd say it is too quick to pull the trigger and grab a guard in the early rounds, whn we have more pressing needs at DL, CB.
Kemo has given us one descent year (2007), two good years (2008 & 2009), and one shoddy one (this last season). It is understood he is not an elite guard or in the top echelon of the league, so he is going to have an off-year every now and then.
But he wasn't the main problem with the left side, it was the journeyman LT we had for most of the season. Jonathan Scott was the weak link on this team in 2010/2011 (and Gay & McFadden), by far. All one had to do was watch the other team stack up the right side of their defense every play to put their best edge rushers on that side each game to know.
