    I hope we get this injury bug out of the way NOW.

Like K and others have mentioned here before: James Harrison is vastly underrated when it comes to the run game! I'd rafter put Cam in Diesels spot and have Brett move to OLB. Call me crazy (I know it will never happen) but I like that duo to be stout against the run and still generate the pass rush.

    Other teams are doing that now with their defensive ends. The Colts with Freeny and Mathis, and last year the Texans did it too. Keisel won't outrun anybody but he can bullrush a good number of the tackles in this league or blow up a tight end.

    Well both the Colts and Texans went from a 4-3 to a 3-4 forcing guys who were used to playing with their hands on the ground to stand up. Mario Williams did it pretty well, im curious to see how Mathis and Freeney adapt. I cant imagine Freeney taking on a pulling guard (Willie Colon) from a OLB position. Kiesel could EASILY take on T's and G's in the run game and still stack up the run, shed and make a play. Plus, I'd love to watch a RB/TE attempt to handle him in a blitz pickup off the edge, lol!

    The Steelers are so old school though that I'm not sure they'd consider using Keisel in a situation like that unless literally every linebacker went down. Even then they'd play some version of the 43 for the time being. Hell though, Keisel coming off the edge just picking up his man and walking him backwards or destroying a RB in blitz pickup would be fun to watch.

    Hood seems to be more of a pass rusher than a run stopper anyway, and his quickness and agility could be potent in that role too.

    I read he was having good camp i.e. Heyward but don't know specifics. I'm tired - is it Heyward or Heywood?? Can't remember

    Timmons isn't an OLB that's why he plays inside they have to find out what Carter and Worilds can do instead of keeping bthem around for 3 or 4 fruitless years

    It's heyward and he had a back injury that slowed him down for a couple days but i personally think that not hearing anything is good it means he is on track

    didnt they (YEARS AND YEARS AGO) experiment with standing Kiesel up during a training camp?
