Default Re: Cam Heyward - 17 plays, 1 sack, 1 forced grounding call

Mainly because Keisel is playing fine and Ziggy Hood has already shown that Smith should be riding the bench. If Heyward is worked into as many snaps as last week for the rest of the season, I'd be fine with that. I believe the moment Smith comes back, he'll be sent to rot.

I'm not a veteran hater until I see them digress to the point where I believe inserting a younger player will benefit the team more (after all, you'll never hear me say start Ryan f'n Mundy over Troy or Jason Worilds over Harrison). But before the season, I was a big proponent of Lewis/Brown starting over McFadden/Gay (1/2 of that is happening already) and Brown starting over Ward (pretty much transitioning now). Sylvester is the next who I believe should be worked in the rotation. I'm not sure how long Tomlin expects Farrior and Foote to play for the team. It would be nice to see him at least getting snaps there.
I agree with you on Heyward, however, I think he may be closer to being an "everyday" player than we may think and he's providing us with a very nice luxury on D.
I want to see Sylvester in there aswell but I wonder whether or not he's picking up the intricacies of this defense. Brown just isn't ready yet to take Ward's spot and we saw what happened when Hines was more prevalent in the passing attack (not as the 1st read but he does sit down in the zone well), our highest point output of the season.

I have a feeling we will see a much different defense next season, with Bmac, Smith and Maybe farrior and Clark no longer starting if in fact they are even here.
