I would love to see Hood out there, he really grew up last year stepping in for Smith, and I do agree that there needs to be some sort of a rotation along the line, it seemed that they were subbing more often in the Colts game.
Some observations from Farrior
Steelers LB James Farrior: "We’re disappointed we’re not stopping the run game as we usually do but it’s still a work in progress.”
More from Farrior: “Guys have to be responsible and trust each other and play the technique that goes with the defense."
Farrior: “Sometimes you get a guy trying to do too much or a guy not quite fitting right. It’s been hurting us a little bit.”
Reads like Farrior is laying the problem on the younger guys on the DL since the only other substitution of note for the front 7 has been Foote
