One of the dumbest posts I've read since being on this site.

Smith is the best by far. If they didn't double him he would be in the QB's face on every single play. That opens it up for Harrison and Woodley to terrorize the QB. We don't get that with Ziggy so much. Plus as someone else mentioned, other teams have been able to run on the Steelers since Smith has been out and when he is in they get nowhere because he collapses the pocket and forces the runs into the LBs.

He might have been 3 years ago...No Longer...I said the minute he got hurt we would not miss him at all, and we haven't......Stats don't lie, he has played maybe 10 games in 2 years and the D has been awesome against the rush in his absence. He only averaged 3 or 4 sacks a year in his younger days. Don't tell me he has pass rush at 35.

I'll take Ziggy and the 1.6 mill he makes over a 35 year old making 6.8 mill any day. We need that money for younger players.

2007..... Smith ... 11 games 89.9 yds per game average
2008......Smith .....16 games 80.2
2009......Smith.......5 games 89.9
2010......Smith ......7 games 64.1

Wow we really missed 6 million setting on the IR

Correlation does not prove causation. The 64.1 yards this year may have more to do with the maturation of Timmons than it does Smith being out. I like Ziggy and think he's done a great job this year. But it will be nice to have Smith back to provide additional (and outstanding) depth to the D-line. Saying you don't care if Smith comes back is like saying one stripper is better than 2

Smith has more to do with the passing game than the running game... any of the defensive linemen has to be double teamed in the run game, but Smith has to be doubled in the pass game. I say look at the seasons passing average with and without Smith.

I do like the fact that we now have depth.....im not trying to imply he is no good.....Just not 6 mill good at 35.

He is one of the TOP DL in the game. If you have to dbl team block any one lineman that is one less blocker available to block our blitzes. He will be the deciding factor against the pats.

You go back to the same stats very time you slam Smith

Do you watch the games

Your post are so off the wall that I had a discussion with another fan asking the question of wether I look at the guy through rose colored glasses.

the fact is, Smith is better then Hood. Is he 6 million good? I'm not in the locker room, but I can tell you from what i read the defensive players can't wait to get him back. The fact is you call him overrated because he's hurt. So is Polamalu overrated?

You want to bitch about money go start a thread about how much Moore, Randel El and a couple other slugs make.
