    Cam Heyward

    Why is he not starting?

    Collapsed the pocket all night and played the run well. Thought he had a great game.

    He has to start over Ziggy at this point going forward!

    hopefully coaching staff saw the same thing and will start him the rest of the season

    Forgot to mention this today.
    Cam looked pretty good.
    Ziggy backup Hood from now on

    We didn't give up a 3rd down conversion with Hood in the game.

    I watched Heyward a few times. He was hesitant sometimes. Other times he made plays. I think he's at a point where he needs playing time to get better.

    No doubt in my mind Cam has all the tools to be great in this league. Ziggy's days as a starter are numbered.

    Before we make Cam the new "flavor of the week" and kick Hood to the curb let's see what he does for more than one game. Much like Max Starks on the OL, Hood is no where as bad as some like to try to portray. Many would have thrown Max out years ago and he is a rock for us the past two years.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Big difference here. Hood is rated as the worst 3-4 end in the league right now by Pro Football Focus. That's out of 15 or so teams playing 3-4 defense.

    Was Max ever rated as the worst Tackle in the league?

    I agree.

    Ziggy and Cam are our future bookend DEs once Keisel retires, Ziggy may not remind anyone of Aaron Smith but he played very well last night.

    To this point I had not been impressed by Heyward at all.
    Last Night I saw him make a few mistakes but I also saw him make some plays.

    put me in the more playing time for heyward camp.

    I don't know what you guys are seeing from hood, but when I rewatch the games, I see him routinely getting pushed 5-7 yards off the LOS.
