Default What's Ziggy's role in 2010?

I think Ziggy Hood made tremendous strides toward the latter part of the season and gave us flashes that he could be a real impact player sooner rather than later. So assuming that Aaron Smith comes back relatively close to his former self where exactly does that leave Ziggy? Keisel is coming off the best year of his career, (imo) so you can't move him there full time either. So is it a 3 man DE rotation next year? Is either he or Aaron big or strong enough to play some nose tackle? Do we mix in more 4-3, if so do Keisel and A. Smith still excell in that formation?

I suppose it's a good problem to have though?

Figuring that there's about 55-65 defensive snaps a game to distribute how many do you think Ziggy's on the field for?

I think he will be in the rotation more...with Smith I would say more so than Keisel...as I think with Smith having more wear and tear than Keisel and wanting to keep Smith healthy and such I think Ziggy rotates with him, he could see a third of the snaps or so...depending on the situation of the game. Plus i see Eason being mixed in some too...or even Harris if they bring him back....though I'd see Harris inactive of the 5.

So you don't think much of Ziggy, or this is some sort of inside joke that I'm not getting?

Ziggy should get into the rotation a lot next year. We'll have three top-quality DEs and we'll be able to mantain fresh legs.

1/3 ... depending on how much passing downs there is.
