Sean Mahan-G - Steelers Mar. 10 - 1:04 pm et
   
 
Steelers signed OL Sean Mahan to a five-year, $17 million contract. The deal includes a signing bonus of roughly $4 million.
Mahan was viewed as a guard by Seattle and Cleveland, but the dollars given him by Pittsburgh indicate he'll replace Jeff Hartings at center. Chukki Okobi and/or Kendall Simmons' roster spots may be in jeopardy

I don't care what the money sitch is, he's either got to be moved to guard next year or fucking cut outright.  I don't think he's a particularly good snapper, and coming out of his stance he just has no power or reaction.  Now, maybe at G he has less to concentrate on and he's OK.  I still think Simmons at LG and Colon at RG is better, in which case, Mahan's a pricey backup.

I kept a close eye on Kemo today.  I'm trying to figure out why he's not good enough to be playing.

Mahan would have to be better at G because there's no way he could be worse at C.  As Finny said, he's way to overpaid to be a backup.  I'll be pissed if he's back next year.  Old, bad kneed Jeff Hartings was much, much better at C than this assclown.

Guess where the Jags D is strongest?  Right in the middle.  Mahan's going to get used and abused like a $2 whore.

If I'm reading the BSG cap info right, we could cut Mahan post 6/1 and create a cap savings.  Depends IMO on whether we retain Kemo.  

Be a hell of a message from Tomlin.

I can't decide if the Mahan or Simmons signing bugs me more.

Yeah, the thread should read "Insert OL name here.....fucking sucks".  My bad.

None of our OL can pass block.  Seriously, it's about time to blow up the whole OL and start over.  Are any of the young guys (Starks, Essex, Kemo) legit NFL linemen?  I don't know, but you'd think they'd be further along right now if they were.

I pray that there is enough depth at OL in the '08 draft to make this possible.
