In all fairness the last holding call nullifying the 18 yard first down was BS.
I still dont see why we gave him all that $$$$.
Even on those pulling plays, he is slow and misses his block 8 out of 10 times.
He is an absolute liability in pass protection but today he had no clue.

if I remember correctly the NY Jets had a higher offer to Kemo already on the table and Kemo actually accepted less to stay with us. at that time we were already thin at OG after having lost Faneca and could ill afford to lose another starting OG.

THIS IS AN EXCELLENT QUESTION. I THINK THAT HE WAS PLAYING SO BAD THAT THE REFS WOULDNT GIVE HIM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. AND YES SOME OF THOSE CALL WERE PRETTY BAD AND CAME AT CRITICAL TIMES. ON A SIDE NOTE THAT ONE ANNOUNCER SHOULD HAVE HIS BLOOD CHECKED FOR NARCOTICS... HE WAS COMPLETELY CLUELESS THE ENTIRE GAME. IT WAS FUNNY.

Yeah, Kemo was awful. The Harrison call, the holding call on the long run by Mendy and the non-call on the that Bills DE twisting on top of Ben after the play was over were also pretty bad. Ben runs for 18 yards? right after that. Amazing, given that he'd just had his knee twisted.

But every knowledgeable footbal enthusiast knows Ben is SOFT. :roll:

I think it was a tie, not defending Kemo but I think he was playing hurt.

Williams is head to the ProBowl. He may be more dominant than Ngata from what I saw today.

They should have kept Faneca, and moved Kemo to RG.

They wasted about $12 million in bonus money to Mahan and Simmons. Both were gone soon after.

If they kept Faneca, Starks would be considered the best LT in the league by now. And his backup would be having an easier time out there.

I'm hoping today was the effect of the triptophan from too much turkey.

Bills also got away with holding, including a blatant hold on Woodley on the drive where they got the field goal to tie the game.

the refs were worse, didn't see them get anything right.

Kemo sucked also, but he did have one nice block...plus Ben likes him :tt2

as bad as the officials were Kemo was worse. It certainly brought back memories of the days of Mahan watching Kemo being walked into our backfield. I have to give Mendy a lot of credit being able to run with a 600 lb obstacle residing in the backfield.

They got those refs from the WWE where they turn their heads and don't see certain things unless it is against the other side.

How much would you pay to see James Harrison hit Roger Goodell over the head with a metal folding chair?

:P

Williams proves to be quite the handful

Bills' nose tackle causes the Steelers a whole lot of trouble

The Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers won't meet again this season, and that's probably a good thing for Chris Kemoeatu.

The Steelers' left guard got more than he wanted from Bills nose tackle Kyle Williams, who dominated their matchup Sunday.

Williams finished with 10 tackles, including two sacks and another stop behind the line of scrimmage. He also drew four holding penalties on Kemoeatu (one was declined), including two in the fourth quarter. The first wiped out a 42-yard run by running back Rashard Mendenhall and the second negated a 17-yard Ben Roethlisberger pass completion to receiver Emmanuel Sanders that would have sewn up the game for the Steelers.

"I thought some of the holding calls were kind of iffy," Kemoeatu said after Pittsburgh pulled out a 19-16 victory in overtime. "I do know which ones I did hold on, which were obvious. I know the ones I didn't hold on that were called, too. But I can't blame the refs. It's something I just have to work on as far as keeping my hands inside and moving my feet. I know I made some mistakes out there. It was a tough day."

Williams made it tough. The fifth-year veteran was virtually unblockable most of the game as he continues to string together Pro Bowl-caliber performances.

He leads the Bills with five sacks and went into Sunday's game ranked second in the NFL among interior defensive linemen in tackles.

"I think I'm the same way since I've been here," said Williams, a former fifth-round draft pick. "I'm going to go out there and play as hard as I can every single time and try to get after those guys, no matter who we're playing."

The Steelers' offensive line problems have been well-documented, and it was evident again Sunday. Roethlisberger was sacked five times and would have gone down more if not for his uncanny knack for escaping tacklers. Still, the Bills' defensive line had its way with the Steelers' blockers on numerous occasions. No one was more disruptive than Williams, whose play drew praise from both locker rooms.

"He's definitely a great player," Kemoeatu said. "Everybody knows he's strong as hell. I thought we had a good week preparing for him. But my hat goes off to him. He's a helluva baller. He's physical, comes off the ball and just hits you in the helmet. I kind of got stunned a couple of plays, but I managed to recover. He gave us a lot of trouble today."

"They couldn't block him," Bills inside linebacker Paul Posluszny said. "I don't know how many times Kyle got into the backfield, but it was a lot. When he makes plays like that he can make it a long day for anybody."

Williams never gave much thought to what he was doing to Kemoeatu, though it was obvious to everyone in Ralph Wilson Stadium. And who knows how many times Kemoeatu held Williams and it wasn't called?

"I tried to get off the ball and work my rush off of how he is going to set," Williams said. "I had some good ones, I had some bad ones. That's how the game goes."

As well as he played, Williams said there were no positives that can be drawn from a loss, which was the Bills' fourth in a row by three points.

He did say Sunday's game was another example that the Bills can hang with the best teams in the NFL.

"I don't think we're a pushover," he said. "There's no quit. We're going to go fight and make some things happen."

Kinda sums up the way Williams plays. Just ask Kemoeatu.
