Of course he won't. But I don't think you'll see many snaps from Hood at RDE. I think we'll see him rotating with Smith and Hampton as opposed to Smith and Keisel. He has played NT before. And with Hoke being in his last year, I think it'll be the smart move having a guy like Hood who can play emergency NT. Heyward +Hood+Keisel would be sex on the field.

I'm confident (or at least hope) Heyward will get the rotation at RDE just like Ziggy did at LDE before Smith was injured in 2009 .

No, I'm not an OSU fan but I do believe Gibson was a better player than Worilds. IRing Smith means we would have kept Gibson. Looks like the Steelers know they made a mistake too when they tried to bring him back.
why do you think the niners cut him so soon ? are they that loaded at olber ?

Besides, they're not letting go of Smith. They'll let him play his final year and Heyward will have a year of experience under his belt and being in rotation with Keisel. I don't think they intend to let Ziggy play that side. I going to go on a limb and say he will rotate in at NT rather than there.
Heyward is going to be a monster. I can't wait till he learns our defense.

why dont you just throw p. burress in the mix and talk about how we would be the greates team of all time. maybe we can talk jerry rice out of retirement as well.

I honestly have no idea. He had very little playing time. I know their defensive scheme probably changed when Singletary got fired. But I can't really speak for the 49ers FO. Drafting Taylor Mays 49th (coincidence?) overall tells me they're not very smart.

I think the Steelers trying to bring him back says a lot more than the 49ers cutting him. Either Gibson was a perfect fit for the Steelers or Worilds has really been shitting the bed (or both).

I'm not the one reliving the past with vets like Hines Ward and Taunto Farrior, who are well past their starting era.

Are you obsessed with Jerry Rice? That's the 3rd time you've mentioned him in like 6 posts. He retired a long time ago btw.

And I don't know why your rofling at the hint that Gibson could be better than Worilds. I remember at 2 years ago many people saying Gibson had a much easier time learning our defense. And the Steelers did make an attempt to bring him back. Why do you think they would do this after grabbing Carter in the 5th?

James Farrior was 26th in tackles. In the entire league. And he was 39th in sacks. In the entire league. That's 2nd and 3rd, respectively, on the team. The Hines Ward thing we've already covered in another thread.

You need to up your medication. It's not working right now.

Is 26th in tackles and 39th in sacks is supposed to mean something? I would hope he was 2nd in tackles on the Steelers being one of the two starting ILBs on the team. Did you know that Derrick Mason was #2 in receiving yards on the Ravens team? How on earth could the Ravens release a guy like Mason when he's SECOND in receiving yards on the team. He's also a mentor.

I mean first you tell me not to use fantasy stats when I use numbers like receptions, yards and TDs comparing WRs (which are double that of another player), then you bring up all of these stats that are completely irrelevant like being 39th in the league in sacks. It's hilarious and you have no response to this so you bring up another argument where you get completely owned again.

I normally don't do this but did you go to college? Please tell me you haven't. If you're in high school, I'll stop wasting my time arguing with you. Comparing Hines Ward to Roddy White topped the iceberg

Fantasy stats?

When did you use fantasy stats, and when did I tell you not to use them?

Being 26th in the league in tackles and 39th in sacks are fantasy stats? And how is Farrior's production irrelevant to an argument about his productivity?
Quote:

What's hilarious? I have no response to what? I was owned somewhere? How much of your life takes place entirely in your head? Do you talk to yourself while you're typing away here? Have you punched your computer monitor in the past few hours?

Like I said, you need to up your dosage.

ziggy hood still hasnt proven to be better than a healthier aaron smith. if he had, smith would be gone, or on the bench with a paycut.

a bird in hand is worth 2 in the bush. its not rocket science.
I have to admit I was wondering if he could come back from this last injury. Having said that if he is healthy I agree it's not Ziggy's time yet. Aaron Smith IS the MOST under rated DE in the league and has been for years. He's perfect for a Dick LeBeau defense. Having said that I'll disagree with what Aaron said about retirement. I believe
when his time comes he'll know it and has the class to step down gracefully.
