i like kemo, extra points cause he's from kahuku (30 mins from where I live)

laughed my ass off everytime simms pronounced his named wrong

they should just call him KEMO-EAT-U, cause he eats defenders on pulling blocks ;)



one thing i wish though is he would chill out sometimes, personal foul calls drive me nuts when they happen, cause they're stupid penalties that just give up free yards and 1st downs

I liked Colon, but would hesitate to say at this point he should be resigned. More than 30% of the players in the NFL who sustain a ruptured Achilles tendon never make it back on the field. And the players who do make it back fail to get back to the level of play they had prior to the injury.

Here's a link with this research ...

Kemo is an awesome run blocker and does o.k. in pass protection. I remember Faneca getting lit up on pass plays his last year here. No one is perfect. Kemo is the one guy who is quickest to come to the defense of his teammates when the defense plays dirty (hence his late shot in the Ravens game ... he knew what he was doing).

I like Kemo as a player but he needs to be more disciplined. He has a tendency to commit stupid mistakes that could have cost us a game. He had too many false starts and personal fouls this season.

It looks like the jury is out...19-5 that we have 2 solid linemen and only have to worry about 3..

Next time I watch NFL reply I will focus on Kemo.

That Mayock ranked Mike Pouncey 1st so there is no way he will fall to us. I was hoping to add him. Some were saying he should go second round. I think he will be a top 25 pick. I wonder if he made Mel Kipers big board.

Dude he came a long way.....I remember the night after they won the superbowl in 08, I had a dream I was landscaping or something and Kemo was working for me just to help, out of some kind of respect..........It was so virtual......

Any lineman can make stupid mistakes with Ben back there......That dude does not follow the normal guidelines as QB's go.......He could end up anywhere on that field.....With that point , i think we have a great line......Being all of them are new this season except Chris.....
