Keep rotating all our DL in there- fresh legs equal productive plays IMO-

Did anyone watch him last week? He was smashed by Duane Brown when he was on the left and Eric Winston when he was on the right. He played really well on a few plays against the Titans and the rest of the time...he wasn't outstanding and still needs to sit and learn. In all his action this year, he has that sack (which also was a forced fumble) and then a tackle here and there.

Love the guy, but he is not ready to be a starter.

In all his action? You mean very little action? Are you aware of what a 3-4 end does? They aren't sack specialists.

I honestly have no idea what you were watching. I rewatched the game and didn't see him 'getting smashed.' I saw him holding is lane and occupying his blocker on almost every play he was in. He is the polar opposite of Aaron Smith this year, who is being pushed out of the play and often on his ass, leaving huge lanes.

cam is one hell of a draft pick, especially at the rock bottom of the 1st round-

Quote:
Steelers Defensive Coordinator Dick Lebeau

On Cam Heyward:

“I think he’s making good progress. He’s always had real good pass rush ability, and he showed up in the game last Sunday with some good pass rushes. He’s learning the package pretty well. We’re very hopeful that he will develop along the lines of Ziggy and contribute significantly as the season goes on. We want him to be a part of the defense and get in the game. He’s got a great work ethic, I think the future is going to be onward and upward for him”
i am almost certain if the steelers were one of those 20 or so perinnial teams with no realistic SB aspirations, or one of those same 20 who flips their coaching staff every 3-5 years, cam would immediately be a starter.

but cam is not on one of those teams and at this point, cam is not ndomkong suh, marrio williams, or julius peppers.

steelerfans who think he should start from day one will have to recognize him for what he is (2 picks from a second rounder) and re-familiarize themselves with the steelers way.

(FYI the "steelers way is that thing that wins championships")

He had a serious elbow injury in the bowl game against Arkansas that required surgery in January. He continued playing the second half of that game and was still unstoppable. But the injury set his offseason schedule behind. Also, his production in his final year of college was inconsistent. He was drafted where he was projected to go ... late first round.

Stopped the run the other 15 plays. Exactly what he is supposed to do. Clog up the holes. Exactly what Ziggy did last year than subsequently was benched because they had no balls to cut Smith.

Cam is progressing (especially without OTA's and minicamp like Ziggy had), but I dont expect him to start for at least 2 years, especially while Kiesel is still playing well

Obviously not, because there are multiple times in the Texans game that Duane Brown had him turned around and smashed him between another player...heres an idea rewatch those big runs and this time look at the left tackle and watch Eric Winston on the right side...you will see he wasn't holding as much as you think.

100% agree...what I have been saying since he was drafted...Thankfully someone else understands what the Steelers way is and that he is not a starter...for a few more years

Ask Ziggy.
