Default Legusky to replace Kemoeatu at LG

we dont have back ups... just starters in waiting-

http://pit.scout.com/2/1131940.html

Quote:
PITTSBURGH – Because of injuries, the Steelers have used six different starting combinations on their offensive line this season.
They’ll use a seventh combination Sunday night in Kansas City, where Doug Legursky will replace Chris Kemoeatu at left guard. This time, injuries have nothing to do with the move.

Legursky will replace Kemoeatu – a starter the last four seasons,
because of performance issues, according to two sources with the team.

in other replacement news mcclendon has passed hoke as hamptons back up according to tomlin. kinda shocking considering how well hoke has played in reserve in the past. im thinking hamptons replacement is already on the roster.

interesting.

they are probably looking to the future with mclendon. hoke has been very good and is still playing at a high level imo. problem is he's old and probably won't be playing for much longer.

legursky replacing kemo makes sense in our pass-first offense. kemo is a better run blocker but in the pass blocking he's a liability. I actually was thinking a few weeks back that maybe we should replace kemo with doug because of our team starting to lean on the aerial attack these days. kemo's never been able to read stunts and blitzes very well, and at this point in his career, if he's still struggling with it, he won't ever get it.

and with ben hurt, they probably want the best pass blockers they got in there.

Legursky for Kemo good move
McClendon, Hampton, and Hoke should all share equal time (in a perfect world, or given the right circumstances throughout a game.)

I don't know about awful, but he did get pushed around a few games. His last start before his injury he was great, and Mendy ran at will behind him. I wonder if we'll start running left a bit. You know... once or twice a game, just to mix it up.

I'm not sure about the move just yet, but I do like it that Tomlin is showing that you have to perform to keep your spot...Keeps people from being lazy.

Good to see a Steelers head coach be active for once. So many years, no matter the performance of some awful players (Brent Alexander, Chad Scott, Dewayne Washington, etc) those players never seemed to get demoted due to their veteran presence. Now, Tomlin is making changes and I love it, especially watching Kemo play the most lazy football I've ever seen him play. Dude lacks in every category this season including laziness and being an absolute dumb player (personal fouls.) Good call on Tomlin. Hopefully we will ride this line out.

Kemo's haircut alone should land him a seat on the bench
