    I present the Steelers new Starting LG...



    @EdBouchette: #steelers have new starting left guard. Legursky replaces 4-year starter Kemoeatu, who says he was demoted
    Chris Kemoeatu, the Steelers' highest paid offensive lineman in his fourth year starting at left guard, has been demoted.


    Doug Legursky will replace Kemoeatu in the starting lineup Sunday night in Kansas City. Kemoeatu said his coaches told him the demotion came because of poor performance recently.

    Legursky started the first three games at right guard but missed the foruth game with a shoulder injury. He started the next two games at left guard because Kemoeatu had a knee injury. A dislocated toe knocked Legursky out of action for three games and Kemoeatu returned to health and his starting job.

    This time, no injuries are involved. Ramon Foster has since nailed down the starting right guard spot he held all of last season.

    It's the third notable demotion coach Mike Tomlin has made in the past few weeks. Hines Ward lost the starting job at wide receiver he's held since 1999 and Chris Hoke lost his long-held job as the top backup to nose tackle Casey Hampton, a job now held by Steve McLendon.

    He's been pretty awful. Not to mention his ridiculous personal fouls every game.

    But Kemo hasn't been flagged the last 2 weeks. Even though 1 of the weeks was a bye week. That's still a streak for him.

    Hmm, interesting. Kemo has been a bit of a liability of late. I think he plays too heavy. At 344, he should look to get down closer to 320. he pulls OK, but id awful on pass blocking and of course the classic jump on the pile after the whistle and maul someone penalty.

    Legs doesn't exactly inspire too much confidence, but I guess they have to start somewhere. At least Legs should be well rested.

    One thing is for sure, the Steelers are getting "younger" before our eyes. Let's hope that also translates to getting better as well.

    That's my concern because he's not that much of a upgrade...

    I applaud Tomlin for making the call the replace Juicy on the line. He's been the weak link since he came back. That knee just isn't right and it's evident when he tries to pull or cut quickly to pick up a pass rusher.

    Legursky did a decent job on the left side for Kemo earlier this year, much more suited there than on the right side where he was a turnstyle.
