    Cool Even with injuries, Willie Colon is not moving back to Tackle

    If and when Willie Colon is going to shine for the Steelers on the offensive line, it's going to be at Guard and not moving back out to tackle. I think we're finally going to see the Colon that we've all been waiting to see for the last few years. Even if the last two seasons ended early with injuries, I think he's going to excel even more at Guard than he ever could at Tackle. Nice to see the Steelers finally making that move with him, been a long time coming.

    Even if injuries do strike this unit I'd hate to see him move back out there and disrupt two positions rather than one.


    • With
    Mike Adams out at least another week because of a knee injury and Max Starks working his way back from offseason knee surgery, Steelers offensive line coach Sean Kugler is looking for anyone to play tackle — anyone except for last year’s right tackle, Willie Colon. The Steelers moved Colon to left guard in the offseason, and Kugler said that’s where Colon will stay. “I will never say never, but I promised him when I moved him to guard that I wouldn’t move him back out there,” Kugler said.

    If we can get through the first few games of the season with him still healthy then this dude is going to destroy people this season. I can't wait to see him against the hated Ratbirds, talk about a throwdown!
