Kemo move in. show us some nasty

Colon, guard please.

Simmons, center please.

Starks LT ... Smith to RT

Draft a first round OT, a mid round Center, and we're good to go.

Bingo!!!! Mahan and Kemo should battle for the RG slot....couldnt agree with you more.
Might even grab a guard early in the draft if we can bring in a WR in FA.

Why do so many people want Simmons at center? We tried him there in the preseason and Colbert said it was a failed experiment. I personally dont think he'd be much better if any better at center than Mahan. Id honestly rather keep Mahan at center, or give Colon a shot.

we could even draft a center mid-to late in the draft and groom him into success.. but he'll have to be a big center...

Mahan wasnt strong enough to stop bullrushers...I think that the mentality is that we need someone in that spot that can plant and keep those NT's out of the backfield. You do bring up a good point however in saying that Colon should be given a shot...6of one half a dozen of the other as far as I am concerned, Colon at Center with Mahan and Simmons at Guard would be worth a look.

If the Steelers are willing to pay the money for a stud OG, who wouldnt want to come to Pittsburgh with the tradition that is here? The Steelers produce OL after OL that make the NFL Grade and if I were an OLineman and the Steelers came calling I would atleast listen to their offers wouldnt you? It aint like this is a rebuilding team either.. we have a Super Bowl team available here and what quality player wouldnt want that?
