In talking with Chris Kemoeatu last weekend at mini-camp, I got the idea that he was feeling a little pressure.
Kemoeatu talked time and again about not wanting to let his teammates down as he attempts to replace All-Pro Alan Faneca at left guard.
Kemoeatu has talent. That's never been the question with him. It's his work ethic, not so much on the field, but off of it. He's never been one to hit the books very hard.
With the starting spot now in front of him, Kemoeatu seems to finally get it.
He talked about how the other veterans were counting on him and how he didn't want to let them down.
It's a start.
