Default Colon at center????

Mark Madden said he heard from a reliable source that Colon will get a good look at playing Center

Can't hurt, give everyone a shot and may the best man win

Why did it have to come from Madden?

I wondered last year why they didn't try him there, oh yea, they paid Mahan a ton to do a shit job of it.

I think that we have our center of the near future in Justin Hartwig. Colon is a nice talent, but I think that Tomlin needs to settle down and let these guys play their position and quit moving them around every other day. How can anyone learn the position like that?

I agree we should just leave colon at tackle and let him develop there, then let Hartwig handle the job at center.

Colon got better as the season progressed. But this sounds like the Steelers are going to play crazy Oline games again this year, and I can't see how that will help. By week two of camp, they need to set a line and stick with it. Let the guys play together, get comfortable with each other and all that. The scheme that was new last year will be old hat, and, at best, we'll maybe have two new guys on the line who have to learn it. We also really nowhere to go but up.

Justin Hartwig is actually a really good center, stop moving colon around so much. I dont want him to be like robert gallery.

I'd be very surprised to see this. We are already 3 deep at Center with Hartwig, Mahan, and Stapleton.

I have to disagree... I would guess Mahan is being looked at almost solely at LG.
