    Cowher making changes to starters.. Kemoeatu & McFadden

    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06298/732664-66.stm

    It's about time Chris K gets the start on the OL. He played great against the Chiefs and it's become more apparent this year that a change is needed and Simmons just doesn't seem to do as well anymore. He really hasn't been the same since his diabetes started.

    As much as I like Deshea, the secondary needs to be shaken up at the CB spot because we just getting burnt way to often.

    It's about time they took Townsand out of there. I was surprise when they even resigned him in the offseason. He's noticably lost a step in coverage and his tackling hasn't much to be desired

    I am happy to hear this one. Maybe this may solve a few problems. Simmons, as much I liked him, he just hasn't been the same since diabetes took over, and I will admit it is a good excuse to use for his downfall in play. Townsend has been surprising me with his lackluster plays.

    What do you mean, He's been this way for a few years now and it's getting worse

    I won't deny that, I like Townnsand, but his play has gone to hell.

    That is why we need the changes. I noticed Ike Taylor isn't playing at the level he was last season.

    I'm all for the changes. I was for Chris staying in the lineup after the Chiefs game but coach wouldn't listen to me

    McFadden... I'm on the fence with. He redeemed himself with an interception after 2 consecutive PI calls but he is a playmaker and can at least catch the ball unlike the other corner. Maybe this shakeup will put everyone on alert saying your job is not secure so we'll start seeing better performances from everyone!

    I really like both of these changes. These guys should have been the starters all along.
