I was pleasantly surprised by the o-line play. They still need to "jell" together a lil bit more. And Ben wasn't running for his life in this game. Sure they gave up a couple sacks, but time together should help.

My girl was squaling "Theres Faneca!" during the highlights...

My reply... "Who cares... he's not a Steeler!"

Good showing today by the O-Line.

Kemo is a true wide body.

His run blocking was very good. Just needs to round it out with some better pass protection.

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.
i agree. it did look like kemo missed his blocks on the sacks. too bad they do not have this kid signed long term because besides the couple missed blocks he looks like he can play

Yeah, Kemo seemed unsure of who Smith had and looked inside, but forgot about Williams. On the other it looked like Smith was unsure who Kemo had and Marvel left Williams. Both correctable, but if the game was closer, the "Smith Sucks" or "Kemo sucks" threads would be out.

I still cant understand why they never looked to extend Kemo before the season started?? Maybe it was cap related, because they all kept saying he was performing well in the preseason and last year. Maybe they feel comfortable that if he leaves in free agency, they can play Stapleton or even Colon inside.

Missed blocks or not, for our line to contain the highest rated rusher in the league is an accomplishment for them to build on. It is absolutely crazy how fast and strong Williams is so 2 sacks for this game is ok by me. Faneca would have been fine for another few years IMO, but I dont think the change to KemoEatU was a downgrade. I absolutely agree his whining BS was part of a problem last season.
