Ziggie Hood’s days in Pittsburgh could be over

var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551', Size: '468060', CallType: 'IFRAME'}; Scott Brown of ESPN.com doesn’t believe Ziggy Hood has a good chance at re-signing with the Steelers this offseason. The Steelers appear willing to let the market set Hood’s price as well, and he may be attractive to teams that play 4-3 defenses and need help up front. Hood played nose...

It's time to shine or go home for Pittsburgh Steelers DE Ziggy Hood

There might not be that many measurable stats for a 3 – 4 defensive lineman but it is this writer’s opinion that the defensive line is quite possibly the most important unit of a 3 – 4 scheme. There aren’t a shower of accolades like in the wake of sacks and the position itself is downright brutal, having to many times absorb a pounding double-team from angry 300lb O-Line...

Is Ziggy Hood a bust for the Steelers?

When he was drafted in 2009, Ziggy Hood was a fairly surprising pick for the Steelers. Most fans wanted some help on the offensive line and expected a pick to reflect that.

Steelers’ Ziggy Hood got himself into shape

Ziggy Hood made several starts last year in place of the injured Aaron Smith and graded out as ProFootballFocus’ worst 3-4 defensive end. However, Hood was a 1st round pick in 2009 and the Steelers still have a lot of hope for him as he is expected to take over full time for the now departed Smith in 2012. In an effort to make good on his upside, Hood, who admits he was sluggish...

Ziggy Hood Moving to Nose Tackle?

In Ed Bouchette’s Steelers Chat the question was brought up and Ed seemed to think it was a possibility.  It was later asked how much weight Ziggy would have to gain if he moved to Nose Tackle. Ed projected around 10 lbs.  That would bring Ziggy to around the 310-315 lb range.  He could easily do it.  Ziggy has the frame for the position. Ziggy could do well at the nose...
