Default Kemoeatu runs w/first team

Not only will Steelers rookie Trai Essex start for injured left tackle Marvel Smith against Cincinnati on Sunday, but fellow rookie Chris Kemoeatu could see playing time at right guard, Essex said Wednesday.

"Chris got a few reps today with the one's (the first team)," Essex said after practice. "He could dress; he's ready. And he's something special. When he finally gets to play, Chris is going to shock the world"

well hopefully he can be what they say he is and that's a devastating blocker, and hopefully we'll have a big enough lead going into the second half he can get some good playing time

They may start him or put him in early if Simmons continues to struggle. Earlier I heard Tim Benz said that Kemo practiced with the first team at both gaurd positions, and I thought they may be moving Faneca out to tackle like they did in 2003... this says Trai will be starting, so I guess not. I am looking forward to seeing this kid play.

I dont imagine they wanna mess w/ the line any more than they have too.. but w/ Simmons seemingly digressing and Chris K waiting in the wings for his shot, u never know how it could work out.

It will take time for them to work together though so if we're gonna make this change we better do it now and stick w/ it !

Maybe he can give the O line a spark and a little attitude.

Somebody mentioned moving Hartings out to RG. That makes some sense, too. Hartings will probably retire (If you recall, he didn't think he'd be able to play past '03 due to his permanent injuries) at the end of this year, and we will need a Center. I think it'd be wise to give Okobi some reps and see what he can do...what better time to new combinations then when nothing else is working?

While I would welcome the change of replacing Simmons with Keamato, ( b/c you couldn't do much worse than Simmons right now) that would mean we'd have 3 rookies on the O-line. That's a risky proposition for a team that is trying to live and die by the running game.

Tough situation we are in with the line. I just keep waiting for that moment went everything comes together, and the real talent of this team begins to shine through.

HERE WE GO.
