    I'd love Kimo back. One of my favorites

    Watch this video he sounds like he's ready to start today!

    See? You can notice this in game films. He's not just a fat guy with a gut. He's big, wide, massive.

    Our strength coaches should have a field day with him as they get to work with him full time.

    Yes he is and yes they will. Not only that but John Mitchell's post draft new conference was interesting. One of the question's was about Ta'amua's weight, which seem to be the biggest concern for alot of Steeler fans, he said he wasnt concerned about it, that they dont watch it as much on the College level, that they have nutrionist that will keep track off and regulate what he eats. No telling if or win Casey will be ready to play but I do think that Ta'amua will be.

    You my friend obviously havent seen much of him on the field. Motivation has never been an issue for him. In fact he is a high motor type. He plays with a lot of energy. Like I have been saying for a while, you guys are in for a big time surprize.

    If this kid does his work after hours and does all his film study and stays focused and in shape, he could be the next Joel Steed or Casey Hampton. He has the perfect build to be a 3-4 NT. He needs to eat up blockers and clog the middle!!! Looking forward to seeing him play.....all though I'm sure he won't start year 1.

    Ta'Amu has should have no problem with effort, film study, or learning this position. He is in decent shape already and is quick for a NT. He plays hard and seems to have his head on straight.

    He does need technique work, and he needs to cover up some stiffness then prevents him from moving laterally as fluidly as Casey Hampton does. John Mitchell will enjoy this guy and he should contribute this year, and probably be the starter next season. I like his personality. Very engaging.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    If Lebeau doesn't start this dude day 1 at NT....then this kid needs to be checked for having no brains, or Lebeau needs sent to the old folks home for being senile.

    He's impressive- for a rookie. He still has things to learn though. The materials are there, but some of them still need to be put together. I don't know what the injury recovery is looking like, but Big Snack isn't exactly chopped liver. He's been the Cadillac of NFL NT's for years and won't be easily replaced if healthy.
