Found October 11, 2012 on Steelers Depot:
Below is the week 5 offensive line breakdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The short week has me a bit behind schedule so I apologize for the delay in getting this up. This was easily the best performance the Steelers offensive line has had all season, even with the four holding calls. There were several nice lanes for the running backs and the pass protection was solid as no sacks were allowed in the game. The line wore down the Eagles front and they ran down hill it seemed for most of the second half as result. PLAYER #TOT + - TOT % # RUN + - RUN Read more [...]

Hard Work By Ziggy Hood Pays Off With Sack Against Eagles

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons certainly had a great game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday and I thought the defensive line, particularly defensive end Ziggy Hood, had a better showing in the game as well.To illustrate how the hard work of Hood resulted in him getting a sack in the game, we need not look any further than the Eagles opening offensive possession...

Staying on the Field: When Healthy Pittsburgh Steelers are Consistent Contenders
