Default I miss Faneca Already

NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While I think Faneca is a great player I am very happy he is not in a Steeler uniform anymore. Alan caused disharmony and this caused the line to play below what they were capable of. I have stated to others before the start of the season that this line will be much better without Faneca. I think todays game proves that.

Yes it is the first game but against the Texans a team that is well known for putting pressure on opposing O-lines. I think the Steeler's O-line showed they will be much better than in years past.

Kudos to Tomlin and staff for making the right moves to get this team going in the right direction. Of course the first bad game and the nah-sayers will be out again in full force declaring that this line sucks. I have followed the Steelers for years and the O-line was declining long before Tomlin and staff took over.

VIOLENT run blocker...seems like Tomlin's praise for Kemo was well deserved.

let's see....

jets running game- 112 and a TD. Steelers running game-183 yards 3 TDs

jets against a bad miami defense, steelers against a good houston defense

and the jets overall gave up 3 sacks and the steelers 2

yep, the steelers should have made faneca the highest paid guard in history.

I love kemoeatu so far!!

Kemo played a damned good game today! He's a big, BIG man and is very strong. In size, he makes Faneca look like a dwarf.

There were only 2 Steelers that I can say I missed terribly when they left and they are Kevin Greene and Rod Woodson.

Agreed, I've said it many times my beef with Fanica was his constant crying about something. I also said before the locker room is probably a better place without him. He gave us some good years but......bye bye....

Faneca can have fun in new York. Pittsburgh done said goodbye. Kemo is more than a capable replacement. The dude is a beast.

Folks, I am one of the biggest Kemo supporters on this board and think he had a good game, but the sacks by Williams were Kemo's fault.

The first one a result of him not realizing that Smith had the outside rusher and he was to pickup Mario Williams. The second was more of a complicated scheme, but Kemo missed the block.

Its all going to get better with time, because its a function of knowing the guys that play on either side of you and what they will do and your responsibilities.

All in all, good game and I'm sure he will get better. Too bad he isnt under contract past this season. I hope they can keep him around.
