    The more I think about our line...especially with the signing of Hartwig, the more I think it can be better than last year, even without Faneca, who you all know I am a huge fan of.

    Some reshuffling should in order, and I really feel Simmons needs to fight for his job this year, w/ Colon and Kemoatu.

    Starks had better sign some kind of long term deal though, no way in hell is he worth that tender.

    Colbert has already come out and said they would try and get something long term done. So here's hoping they do get it done.

    “It would give us salary-cap relief,” Colbert said. “It’s our goal and I know it’s his goal and (agent) Eugene Parker’s as well, so we’re going to keep those talks alive because there are benefits for everybody involved.”

    So basically here's your opening day starting OL (w/o considering the draft):

    Smith / Colon / Hartwig / Simmons / Starks

    2nd Team / Bench:

    Essex
    Stapleton
    Mahan
    Kemo

    I still think Essex and Stapleton are on the hot seat...Stapleton especially because we now have Hartwig and Mahan who can both play Center. Essex because drafting a Tackle on day 1 will probably make him an odd man out too.

    im not sure if we should get rid of Stapleton just yet because hartwig is only signed for 2 years and he might be ready step in by then. that is if he is showing anything to lead the coaches to believe that is the case now. but who knows? certainly not me

    Steelers will hang on to Stapleton. Long-snappers are in demand around the league.

    The Steelers seen something in Stapleton, hurt in preseason last year and being a UDFA, he still made the team ahead of Stephenson who supposedly had a better pedigree. He's gotten up to 315 lbs, so he shows he can add the bulk, he just needs to get stronger with that added weight.

    Looks like an o-line that can give Ben a chance and Willie a couple fo steps to me. Not too deep though...
