    Ruthless, I am glad you included a teammate in that picture of DeCastro. No way was he able to neutralize Ta'amu without one.

    And to be fair Stanford ran a lot of two and three TE sets this year. With their O-line and three TE's it isnt a surprise that they were able to control Washington's defensive front.
    I wonder if this had anything to do with Luck's low sack numbers?
    Maybe a little but he did throw the ball 404 times and there is no question that he has a very quick release and is very good a his progressions. He gets some of that credit as well.

    I'm probably in the minority, but I think that Ziggy might be better playing over the center as opposed to the 5 Tech DE...

    I can see Ziggy as a stronger, more athletic Chris Hoke or Jason Ferguson...

    For Chadman- THIS is the big variable. If the Steelers view Hood as the future NT, draft boards will change for everyone. Would another 3-4 DE then be required? Probably- but doubtful it would be a 1st round type need.

    Nothing personal dude,..but i honestly do not comprehend this line of thinking.

    If Hood already has questionable lower body strength for his size, problems with leverage and pad level, AND is 6 ft 3 and often struggles with single blockers as a 3-4 End,......how does that make him qualified in any way to play at the 'spearhead' position of NT ?
    1) Alameda Ta'amu, NT, Washington

    2) Miles Burris, LB San Diego State

    3) Jordan White, WR, WMU

    4) Mychal Kendricks, LB, Cal

    5) Blake Gideon, F/S, Texas

    6) Matt Conrath, DE, VA

    7) Adam Nissley, TE, UCF

    Ta'amu sucks period. A NT who gives up 69 points and 482 yards rushing in a bowl game is a guy who should be avoided at all costs. I am not impressed by a guy who was consistently pushed backwards in the biggest game of the year against Baylor. To me the guy looked like a wounded out of shape dime a dozen backup NT and nothing more.

    he gave up 69 points by himself?

    Not to attempt to make an azz out of anyone else or umption. But there may be a bit of sarcasm in that post ? Perhaps in an attempt to "spoof" my particular brand of disdain for some Tomlin Regime personnel decisions and or it's players ?

    But, Hood doesn't have questionable lower body strength...the only time I ever read that was in this post...

    Now, pad level was a problem coming out of college, but that is something that coaching should solve...

    During his successful college career at Mizzou, he played inside at DT...he was good there and I have seen no reason to believe that he has somehow been a failure at 5 Tech nor that he could not be a successful NT in the same mold as a Chris Hoke or a Jason Ferguson...

    In fact, I think he would be better if he were closer to the QB...

    Yup...found this quote from the Big Snack:

    Ziggys a big, strong guy. Hes a different type animal, Hampton said. He might be the strongest player on the team. Ziggy can pretty much play on the line where he wants to. Ive got that old-man strength. Hes got that still-in-the-weight room strength.
