Listen to Coach Mitchell talk about Ziggy Hood and the fact that some scouts say he plays too high.

A lot of times when scouts go out and look at a guy, you say ‘well this guy plays high and he doesn’t use his hands.’ Well, that is what you pay me to do. I am not concerned about that. This guy stays on his feet, he is going to give you 60 minutes of football, he is a strong guy, he is very intelligent

Now that is the attitude of a REAL COACH!! He is gonna coach up a guy with tools and get more out of him than others would. He is rarely mentioned, but a big reason for the success of our D line.

He's right, no reason for coaches if everyone was perfect.

I'm glad Mitchell is still a Steeler. I beleive Arizona offered him the D-coordinater job and he turned it down. Or was that Butler?
