I was quite impressed with Chris last week. I'm not sure if he is ready mentally to play every game but I don't see how we don't use him after the way he played.

The rewind button kept clicking in the film room Monday morning, stopping the video and replaying some of the personal highlights from a resounding victory against the Kansas City Chiefs. But it wasn't just the usual suspects who were being highlighted. It wasn't just Ben Roethlisberger or Troy Polamalu or Willie Parker or Nate Washington.
The video kept replaying to get another look at some other awesome plays.
The ones delivered by Chris Kemoeatu.
"There were a couple times when you got to the rewind, it was like -- dang!" said left tackle Marvel Smith.
"Sometimes, you just see him push a guy off the ball and the guy just falls down," said right tackle Max Starks. "Then, you see him blow up into a guy like a linebacker. He's just so powerful and explosive hitting them, he just embarrasses some guys."
"He had some big hits in there," said Pro Bowl guard Alan Faneca.

Sometimes the "fresh" guys just go into it with more heart, explosiveness, and hunger than the vets do.

I think Chris did an excellent job--kinda made ya not even notice who was missin'...:bigthumb:

He's definately some fresh young talent on the OL, and the way he played he's going to push for more time sooner or later.

I think he needs to be a regular, that guy is just flatout dominant. Too bad we couldn't clone a few more of him.

There was talk of this last season. That he was a monster just waiting to be released. If I was Simmons I be looking over my shoulder.

He might not be ready to start every week, but the dude definitely stepped in last week and was huge and showed the Steelers future still looks promising after some of the veterans start retiring. He was awesome last week!!
