    Legs is not the answer long term for the position, but sometimes you've got to go with what you have and just roll.

    He is not the same caliber as Kemo, but Kemo hasn't been doing well.

    It was the right decision. IMO

    Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians didn't frame it as a benching. The Steelers offensive coordinator said Doug Legursky has simply played a little better than Chris Kemoeatu, which is why he will start at left guard Sunday night in Kansas City.
    "Dougie is healthy, and Doug played extremely well when he was in there," Arians said following practice Thursday. "Chris did not play poorly. We just have some good depth in there for the first time in a long time."


    Kemoeatu has started 58 games at left guard, including the playoffs, since 2008. Kemoeatu, who has battled a knee injury since early in training camp, started the past four games at left guard.

    Perhaps the coaches should get their stories straight before they talk to the media. A benching is a benching. If you were a starter and now suddenly you aren't, and not because of injury, then you aren't playing up to par.

    I think Doug Legursky will do fine. He has always been a serviceable backup on every position but this season when he did play it wasn't anything spectacular except when he filled in for Kemoeatu at Left Guard.

    I said earlier this season Legs would be better at left guard than Kemo and everyone thought I was nuts :P

    At right guard he was terrible, but the reps he's had at left guard have been pretty solid.

    THE BIG LEGURSKY!!!As others say, don't know how much of an upgrade he will be. Let's hope O line can gel b4 Playoffs begin.
    Re Hines, it's no secret that he runs slower than the average linebacker. Still, he knows where to find gaps in coverages and "sit down." Antonio Brown obviously a much more versatile weapon. Hope to see Cotchery become more a part of the offense as season unfolds (this seems to be the plan); he's a good possession receiver...maybe as good as Hines, but also more of a threat in other patterns.
    Looking for Steelers to get Offense revved up a bit...looking for 30+ pts. vs. Chiefs on Sun. Only 2 previous 30+ games this yr...38 vs. Titans, and 32 vs. Cards.
    Ben ranked 8th in NFL in passing...but team ranked 19th is scoring: 22 pts. per game!

    as much as i LOATHE kemoeatu, legursky as an NFL starting LG is a joke, even more so than legursky as a starting RG which we went through opening week

    He may not be a stud Guard but I'd certainly rather have him on the left side than the right. He got destroyed even in preseason at RG. I would still say that Kemo is the lesser of 2 evils at LG right now but neither is a long term answer for beyond this season.
