    Tuesday with Tomlin.. Adams and Hood to the bench.

    Tuesday, October 08, 2013

    Tuesday with Tomlin
    With an 0-4 record, the Steelers have had their share of struggles. And usually when you struggle, changes are in order.

    For the Steelers, that means Kelvin Beachum at LT and Cameron Heyward in the starting lineup in place of Ziggy Hood at defensive end.

    Will this solve all the problems? No.

    But it does show that the team is willing to make a change.

    Beachum is listed as the starter ahead of newly acquired Levi Brown. Mike Adams, the previous starter, is listed as No. 3 at LT and RT. Beachum, by the way, is still listed as the backup at center.

    Heyward has been playing well, well enough to push Hood out of the starting lineup. Hood has been terrible this season, but Heyward has been markedly better.

    @ Only Markus Wheaton, with his broken finger, is listed as out this week.

    Ramon Foster will continue to work towards playing this week despite his strained pectoral muscle.

    @ For accounting purposes, the conditional pick the Steelers traded for Brown to Arizona comes in 2015, not 2014.

    The condition - though I'm not positive on this - likely revolves around how many starts Brown makes for the Steelers over the next two seasons. He is under contract for next season as well.

    Dale,

    Did you mean to say that Hood "hasn't" been terrible this season?

    Also, I don't know how I feel about Beachum at LT. If Foster goes down (not unlikely), we'd have to make two changes. Because I assume Beachum would move to LG and Brown to LT?

    About 2 years too late. Tomlin fails again.

    Took Cam 3 years to unseat the mediocre Hood - another of Colbert's draft failures.

    Not sure if this was your comment or just from the post you copied. But I agree with that thought.

    He wasn't meant to unseat Hood. He was meant to replace Keisel.

    It took Tomlin 5 years to realize Hood never fit our system while he continued to force a square peg in a round hole.

    Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
