According to Coach T, Max Starks sprained his knee today. Trai Essex, get ready.

How much worse could he be than Marvel???

You guys see Chris Kemoeatu in the 2nd half today? I saw him mowing down the ravens d-line in the 2nd half after they took big red out. Could he possibly be Faneca's replacement next year??

Yeah, Kemo looked pretty good out there. Like he was just LOOKING for someone to hit.

God, I hope he works out.

As far as Essex:  Starks shouldn't have even been in this game, for chrissake's. It's not like we are thin at tackle, right?  Essex shoulda drawn the start.

Holy Crap...talk about scary...

"Starting at Right Tackle in the Pittsburgh Steelers' playoff opener, Trai Essex!"

Hope Ben has his insurance policies paid up.  But, as already stated, it's not much worse than Marvel has been this year.

Well, that should about wrap it up for the year.  

Shades of 2003, when Faneca was playing OT.  Maybe an O-line with Kemo at LG is better than Colon or Essex at LT.

Ravens aren't exactly shy with the pass rush, and Trai stood in there.  Maybe there's hope?

Ahh, who the fuck am I fooling.

i was originally pretty worried about Essex starting at LT, but after some thinking, how much worse can he really be than Marvel Smith has been this year?  the rest of the line just needs to step their game up and it shouldnt be much of a problem, its not like Ben has had any protection all season anyway.
