    Ok, slightly back to the original post, McLendon would be well used in various roles on the DL, mostly in passing downs, as he seems able to get some pressure. He reminds Chadman of Chris Hoke, kind of a pocket-rocket on the DL.

    Thing is, he's not a 3-4 zone blitz NT. He can't stack the middle, draw multiple blockers. He's not the answer, but he's a useful tool to have. Hood is nowhere near as bad as people would want you to believe. Go back and watch some tape, he faces multiple blockers on most plays- more so than Casey did early in the season.

    Ok lets say you are right...and yet he was in the top six rushers of ALL TIME.

    I can't stop laughing. I might wake up Mrs. Fan now because of this.

    Give McClendon more reps... I don't care if he is soft against the run. Let him learn on the fly.. he will improve.

    Bettis was a beast.... he could fall forward for 3 yards without an OL and over time he would wear down a D.

    My wife said Tomlin packed on a few... I don't look at guys like that. LOL...

    Let me guess...the answer at NT is a kid from Australia
    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!
