Benching Hood is a start, but I'd throw Big Snack on that pile too.
What the heck - why not replace Kiesel with Heyward, Hampton with McLendon, and try Woodley at LDE? Woodley is a straight up bull-rusher anyway & doesn't provide much in coverage.
Go with Harrison, Foote, Timmons, and Brandon Johnson at LB or Worilds if he can start showing something....anything...
Maybe it's crazy, but what we're doing isn't working either. Shake it up. Try something crazy. As much as I dislike Belicheat, he's a master of thinking out of the box and finding ways to use players in unconventional ways...and win while doing so.
