    Are we finally seeing the potential of Ziggy Hood?

    After years of playing backup to the legend Aaron Smith, filling in but never really being the consistent force his 1st round status proclaimed maybe now he's arrived.

    Three batted down passes in the last 2 weeks and the blocked PAT today.

    All I can say is, it's about time!

    Honestly I did not notice hood today at all, but then again, I had to watch the game at a sports bar and it was hard to tell the players apart with those butt-ugly jerseys!

    Ziggy's been fantastic getting his hands in the passing lanes in the last couple games. He's also doing a great job of flushing the QB out of the pocket. It looks like he's turned a corner

    He has to do more than block an extra point and bat a couple balls down in a two game stretch to make me forget 3 years of bad play. Did you not notice in the Bengals game how they kept running right at Hood? They ran directly at him their entire TD drive.

    I hope Ziggy gets better and better and becomes a Steeler Superstar. However, your analysis is exactly what I saw in the Bengal game. He was getting blasted off the line of scrimmage. Could not hold the point at all.

    Didn't notice anything special today aside from the block, but he's always been consistently average. I don't mind him, he's not as terrible as everyone makes him out to be, he just hasn't developed into the "superstar" we are used to seeing in our #1 picks. I don't think he'll ever be dominant in our system.

    I'll take any improvement I can get when it comes to Hood. If baby steps are what we get then so be it.

    Any time you run right at a defender you can have success, it's just a matter of how well the rest of the team pursues to the ball to stop the bleeding. Hood is coming along, and as long as he progresses I'm content.
