That man is Willie Colon. With Colon missing for the year, the Steelers were without a guy who, over the previous two years, had given up only 43 QB disruptions, and the team finished among the worst pass protection units in the league.

And, yes, you do have to be good to finish ahead of Jake Long."

1 Willie Colon 1333 43 2.66
why in the hell would you wanna go muddy the myths with facts and stats???

youre just gonna confuse everyone and have them doubt the company line they been singing.

now i gotta sit back and wait for the inevitable "stats can be twisted to say anything" retort.

Tony... please. Numbers don't tell the whole story. Aaron Williams and Curtis Brown might both be 6' 0", but there's tall, and then there's TALL. Know what I mean?

It's hard to be picky when you pitch a shut-out but has anyone noticed that a certain starting d-lineman has not made a tackle in two games -not even an assisted tackle! Hell, Big Ben and Heath Miller have more tackles (two) than Smith. Glad to see Hood is getting more playing time.

In fairness to Aaron Smith, tackling is not really his primary assignment.

isnt Colon's built more like a guard?

anyway Kemo is signed through 2013 and Colon through 2015 and the cap hit is the same for both players. they both might be around next season and both might play out their contracts.

I think it is safe to say the division, home field, Super Bowl trip, and Super Bowl win hinges on not being so enamored with Ike taking away the deep threat, trying something different with the secondary where you cloud the short and intermediate routes and at ALL COSTS - hurry the QB, sack the QB, tip the ball, intercept the ball and make it absolutely miserable for the quick-strike QB and his little speedy WRs and tight ends. You figure this out, you figure Brady out, you figure Brady out and you get the AFC. You get to that point, and you have the formula to take out the NFC counterparts in Rodgers or Brees. We are capable of anything ladies and gentlemen but we have to start thinking outside the box . . .C'mon - if the Jets can go into Gillette and get to Brady, so can we.

I'm not buying no fool's gold with a win over a wimpy Seattle team but we have the experience, the energizing youth, and the heart to go after what is ours. ALL HANDS ON DECK . . .

chris kemo and justin hardwig both #1 worst pass blockers at their position. not really surprised to hear that. over the years it does seem like pressure up the middle has been much more of a problem than tackles getting beat outside

I wish kemo had signed with the Jets a few years ago.
