Thread: Hood at NT

Hybrid View

    Hood at NT

    Was it me or did our pass rush instantly get an upgrade when McClendon went down and Hood took over at NT? If it turns out that Hood is a good NT that will be "the straw that breaks the camels back" in terms of my trust in our talent evaluation/coaching staff. It seems like there has been multiple misjudgements of talent on our team.

    I thought Woods took over, though I did notice Hood have a nice arm-over move, to get a pressure on the QB. Sadly, it really felt like the first good move I've ever seen Hood use on a pass-rush.

    Woods had two sacks. Maybe he wont be coming off the field anytime soon, even when those other players are ready to play.

    In camp, Wolf and Tunch were describing Al Woods as a beast.

    Reality is that Hood would be a very, very good 4-3 DT. Just not sure he fits what LeBeau does
    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!

    I'm sorry, Ovi, but I don't see it. Even when he has been asked to rush the passer, Hood has shown very little. Look at the impact that Heyward has on passing plays vs. Hood. Hood did make a nice move yesterday, but hasn't done anything to show that he would be an impact player in any system.

    It will be interesting to see what they do against the Ravens. The Ravens center had a hard time with McClendon (one of the few games where I've seen McClendon's play as a positive - the other was against the Titans). I'm not sure that Hood or Al Woods will give him similar troubles.

    I'd imagine that the Steelers DL will be Hood-Woods-Heyward if Keisel cannot go again. If Keisel is able to go, it will be interesting to see if Hood gets reps at NT.

    I'm interested to see if the Steelers have anything in Fangupo, who seems to be built in the mold of Joel Steed and Casey Hampton, but a huge game against the Ravens on a short week is not where I'd want to experiment.

    We can continue to disagree but Hood looks much stronger rushing the passer from the inside. Yesterday I saw him pushing the pocket on several occasions and flushing the QB to Worilds side.

    Like Worilds, I know there are a lot of posters who have invested a lot of print to bashing Hood but he has looked good the past few games so I'll give him his due.

    I've wondered if we were playing Hood on the wrong side all along? I thought he looked great on Keisel's side and Heyward never really looked that good over there. And now Heyward looks great in Ziggy's old slot.

    Take off the b&g glasses, Ovideo. HOOD STINKS. You can count on one hand how many plays he's made. I can't wait until he's off the team.
