How would it help anything? We were #1 against the run and led the NFL in sacks remember?

I by no means want Ziggy benched. But Smith would be a welcome sight for depth and breaks. He is still being paid.

Not to mention the team unity and "inspiration factor" he would provide to our defense.

Ziggy has been adequate in relief so far, and may be starting to "get it" now, but Smith is still the best LE we have by leaps and bounds. The numbers posted above clearly demonstrate that-- without Smith, we are a dominant defense, and with Smith, our defense is elite.

By the way, is that you STEEL-THE-ONE (from CBS)? It's me, SteelPlatoon.....

Hows it going, buddy? Have a happy holidays? Good seeing ya around.

Is that religious debate FSM thread thread still going on over at CBS? I ducked out of it-- seems like a good way to make enemies among my fellow Steelers fans, and doesn't really accomplish much else as far as I can tell....

New to the site, so welcome all. I've been reading this thread and thought I'd chime in on the discussion. I have been in total favor of keeping Smith off the IR. Aaron Smith from ESPN blogged today that "Smith put the pads on for the first time in two months, which is a very good sign for Pittsburgh. With its playoff game still 10 days away, things look promising." There is hope my friends!
Our defense has had a great year, were resting for the playoff run and Ziggy Hood has played well. I think this injury is a blessing in disguise for the future. Hood will continue to get better and "if" Smith is ready to come back for the playoffs, I believe our odds of winning the seventh Lombardi get better!!!

GO STEELERS...

agreed. if smith was healthy hood wouldnt of had a full year of starting under his belt. obviously i would feel different if hood hadnt played well but he did and should come back next season even better. with that said i really hope smith can play but im almost positive it wont happen.

This P-G story this morning appears to be setting up Aaron Smith not returning this season - some gambles works out, some do not - Steelers apparently waived a 4th round pick in return for boosting morale with a long shot hope a lineman in his mid-30s with a growing history of upper arm injuries would be a quick healer -guess again

There still are many questions and concerns from all involved -- his teammates, coaches, the organization, even the 6-foot-5, 300-pound defensive end himself -- about whether he can return any time before the Super Bowl, should the Steelers make it that far.

This much is known: Smith will not play when the Steelers open the postseason Jan. 15 in a divisional playoff game at Heinz Field. The earliest he will return is if the Steelers advance to the AFC championship game Jan. 23, though even that possibility is uncertain at this time.

Aaron Smith has been a great Steeler but at some point it is time to look forward rather than look back

Any updates? Has he been ruled out, questionable, probable? I haven't seen ANY news about him in the media, hell they talked about Memo being back but didnt even mention Smith's status...
