Its time for Ziggy to take over and prove that he was a worthy #1 pick for the Steelers cuz so far he hasnt proven anything to me.
What dropoff? We are the number 1 rushing Defense!

At first, it was hyperbole, then you really got me thinking...

If I asked you to give me a list of DEs better than Aaron Smith at stopping the run in the last 20-25 years, what would your list look like?

The guys been a good player. No doubt. just way pumped up. Eason and Hood have been just fine. And combined make half of what Smith does.

i'm a huge fan of frankenstein smith but I think ziggy's starting to play really well. we can afford to have him sit until he's 100% again or at least close to it.

Now that would be a very tough list to come up with. Aaron Smith has been excellent playing DE on this team. If he really is going to come back soon, then we just might be getting very healthy at the right time of year.
