I know, just as they thought Aaron Smith Last Season would do better than Ziggy Hood even though he hasn't played a full down in years.
An Aging Lineman coming off of ACL surgery is doing better than a guy who came into the season with a full head of steam.
It's a comedy the Steelers Coaching Staff is putting on now.
Yes, this is something that really bothers me. All through preseason the coaches rave about how great McLendon is doing, and he looks impressive in the preseason.
Regular season starts, the guy is nowhere to be found. Instead we have a kneeless Hampton three times removed from having real ACL tissue in his knees, getting pushed around in the regular season.
Let the young guys play, coach. I am tired of your unwillingness to let the future of this team barely even get any reps.
