Default Re: Insert Ziggy Hood at LDE

Were most of you even fans last season? Hood played almost all last season, and played well. The coaching staff knew this. However, prior to his last injury, Smith was by far the top DT in the game. I agree it is time for the new blood to be out there, but had to at least try and see if the old Smith would be back. Smith prior to his last injury is better than Hood now. And, cutting him now would be stupid and pointless, at the least he is a top backup and will be needed on the stretch run for rotational use to keep the DL fresh or at worst to fill in in case of injury. Dam ppl, get a clue and realize having depth is a good thing, especially when making a playoff run. Oh wait, this is the "sky is falling" group huh . . .

We should have at least 2 players that play at each D-Line position.
Keisel, Heyward

Hampton, Hoke, McLendon

Hood, Smith

Yep. No need to cut Smith but play him at backup. Cutting him wouldn't help the team at all unless it meant more reps for my boy Heyward

No he won't. He's out for the Jax game. At Houston was his last start with the Steelers unless someone gets injured. You Have Ziggy playing with a chip on his shoulder and looking over his shoulder.

If we smoke the jags and shut down MJD there's no way in hell Tomlin can justify putting Hood back on the bench.

The only time Ziggy Should be on the bench is if we have the ball on offense,or for a quick breather!
