    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.

    Al Woods looked pretty good in there.
    One thing i noticed is he lined up deeper off the LOS when over the center.

    If we get a chance to see Woods and Fangupo play this week, we might find we have a decent future for our DL. Assuming Hood leaves as a FA next year (he is in a contract year, right). Without Hood and a little good luck injury-wise (when have we had that recently?), we could have DE's Heyward, Keisel, McClendon (move to DE), N. Williams and Arnfeldt, and Woods and Fangupo manning NT, we add D.Shelton as a true space-eating NT in Round 3, and maybe even J. Mauro as a DE in Rd 6. I think that's not a bad future--with some good competition.

    I'm all for Hood playing at "NT" next year.

    That is if NT stands for: New TEAM

    He did alright great. If he wasnt a first rounder we would have given up on him already.

    Wait a minute.... Hood gets blown off the line of scrimmage as a 3-4 DE but we think he can hold his ground as a NT. Based on a few years of evidence, what in the hell would give anyone the idea that he could stand his ground as a 3-4 NT? I'm just curious.

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

    It is also humorous, people thinking that we've simply missed the boat... that it is a simple switch of positions or sides that will salvage this ham & egger. If he was a very good 4-3 DT, wouldn't we have put him in that situation during passing situations, and watched him go Geno Atkins over the league? Of course we would.

    It isn't the side, or the scheme... he's just not very good.

    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.
