2012 Steelers training camp: Is Willie Colon the next Chris Kemoeatu?

So one of the big stories in camp, as if there weren’t enough already, is the return of Willie Colon and of course his move to guard from tackle.

Chris Kemoeatu Named a Pro Bowl Alternate. Now Ike Taylor Has Beef

Chris Kemoeatu was named a third alternate at guard for the 2012 Pro Bowl.  This just shows that they might as well just let the fans vote because the players are just as bad.  Chris Kemoeatu does not even start for his own team.  He was benched and only gets in when other guys get hurt.  For a player or coach to vote him good enough to be an alternate is just pathetic.
