Hood wants Pittsburgh again

BEREA, Ohio -- New Cleveland Browns free-agent signing Roderick Hood knows the Pittsburgh Steelers all too well. In fact, the veteran cornerback played his new division rival more recently than his Browns teammates.

Last season, Hood was a member of the Arizona Cardinals, who were runners-up to the Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII. He was on the field during Pittsburgh's game-winning drive, capped by Santonio Holmes' memorable catch in the back of the end zone.

After signing a one-year deal with Cleveland this week, Hood said he relishes the two opportunities this season to make up for that last-minute defeat to the Steelers.

"Definitely," Hood said. "That was definitely a tough loss that we had, but at the same time the Steelers are always going to be competitive. We're in a pretty good division. So we get a chance to go against the Steelers, and playing against them you find out where your team is. I look forward to it."

Hood, who started 14 games for Arizona last season, was quick to point out that he wasn't in the vicinity of Holmes during Pittsburgh's game-winning play. Hood says he was on the other side of the end zone during the touchdown catch.

The seventh-year cornerback was released by the Cardinals this offseason after the team signed former Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden in free agency.

Gotta admit...

I admire the old school respect. It came across as, "Yeah, they beat me.... Now let me get at em twice this year to rectify it for myself!"

I really like that attitude.

Unfortunately, the Browns haven't beat us in what, almost a decade now? :rofl:

Maybe he shoulda joined the Raiders. We have more problems with them then the Browns.

he shouldn't feel too bad, he should have known that after the loss the cards would try to raid our team (again), just so happened they got somebody from us that took his job.

like the winning attitude, too bad he's in cleveland though

Someone should tell him that signing with Cleveland gives him no shot to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Have fun losing to the Steelers three times within less than 12 months this season Hood. No Super Bowl rings for you!

All I can say is be carefull for what you wish for. He could get a dose of a Hines Ward hit.

His team gets beat in the big game by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Then an ex-Pittsburgh Steeler coach thinks he is expendable enough that he replaces him with a...Pittsburgh Steeler.


That has GOT to suck!!!!!
