Default Re: I was watching Ziggy Hood Last night...

When you see him "standing up getting no push", that's likely the scheme. Problem is, LeBeau is asking a guy 3" shorter with much shorter arms to do what Aaron Smith did - stand up, use both arms to hold off to OL, and still be able to shed blocks.

Hood is a different player. Short, penetrating one-gapper.

He'll never replace Aaron Smith. He could be a good player in a different scheme, but we won't see that as long as Mitchell and LeBeau are around. Hopefully that will be next year, as Tomlin has spent six years with Colbert picking talent that don't fit DL's schemes.
