We simply don't have young linemen to play LeBeau's style of 3-4 anymore, otherwise they'd have taken snaps from Keisel and Hampton this year, both of whom noticeably slipped.

Keisel - 939
Hood - 888
Hampton - 497
Heyward - 263
McClendon - 136
Woods - 36
Ta'amu - 0
Fangupo - 0
Letting Hampton go is a fantastic move. They should seriously reduce Kiesel's playing time in 2013

Hood, Heyward, Mclendon, Fangupo, Woods and Ta`amu aren't young? If Hood doesn't learn his gap assignments then he needs to be benched.
