Default What is the deal with Ziggy

Where in the world is DE Ziggy Hood? Pittsburgh's No. 1 pick in the 2009 draft was nowhere to be found Sunday. When starter Brett Keisel went down with an injury, it was Nick Eason who took over, not Hood.

What does this mean for big ol zig?

Since he's already 20 games or so into his career as a first round pick, it is well beyond time to label him a bust and cut him. Reminds me alot of that other recent first round bust, Larry Timmons.

Hmm. Say what you like about Timmons, he didn't find himself regularly thrown around like a ragdoll. I have always wondered about Ziggy. He projected as a stud 4-3 End, but with his size and skillset, there must always have been a worry about his ability as 5-technique. I still have that worry.

It has to be a concern. No stud number one pick should be sitting on the bench in year 2.

He's a better backup than Kirschki lol

I think he's a good player, but he isn't right for the 3-4 zone blitz system. Hopefully he can learn the system and get in the weight room and become as dominate as Smith for the future.

Ziggy needs to develop a nasty streak on the field ,be first to the play ,and not just a clean-up guy .Until he gets mean and nasty he will be no more than just a fill in d-lineman.

You do when you have Smith, Hampton and Keisel as your starters. I've seen him play more this year than last year. Must be great for a team to have a very talented young guy come off the bench to support one of the best defensive linemen in the league (Smith) instead of relying upon that young guy to be "The Man".

And as Tony said, he tends to back up Smith while Eason backs up Keisel.

not saying Ziggy will turn out to be a bust or a star.. but Timmons at least showed flashes of stardom numerous times while he was being brought up. his biggest issues were lack of discipline and awareness... his physical abilities were never really a question in Hood's case, he hasn't showed much of anything from his limited playing time.
