  • Smith out for season

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7552830?MSNHPHMA

    Aaron Smith is out for the season with a torn bicep. Eason will probably take his place.

    I think DE depth just moved up on the needs list for this offseason.

        This is really going to hurt next week against the Jags cause Smith is probably the second most, if not most important key to stopping the run on our defense. Hopefully Eason can step it up to shut down MoJo and Freddie Taylor.

                Guess we might get a chance to see if he was worth the pick.

                  Smith is a big part of the defense and eason doesnt even compare. This really hurts our run defense and could make a deep playoff run hard.

                    I would really go as far to say that Aaron Smith is the most integral part to our defense.

                    Teams rarely run to the right and if/when they do, it never goes anywhere because Smith can tackle anyone and I have never seen him, not once, get blown off the ball.

                    Watch ANY game Eason has been in and tell my 1 game where he actually didn't get blown off the snap on 1 play. Eason seems like a Vanilla 4-3 Lazy ass DE... more than a 3-4 Hold the point DE.

                      I do understand that he is one of our best players, but honestly, i believe we will game plan to make it seem like eason isnt there...i would move hoke to de for the games

                        Massive loss for the Steelers that will go unnoticed by most fans because he has no name recognition. Eason is not even comparable to Smith and we will probably be much worse against the run now.

                        Still we are likely to win the division. The Browns will have to make up 2 more games over the last 3. Probably not gonna happen.

                        Thanks to The Dynasty for the sig

                          We can't move Hoke to DE without suffering depth issues at NT. and against a run first team like Jacksonville... thats not a good idea. Though I think we should see some "Fat Nickel" with Eason/Kirschke at the Ends and Hoke/Hampton inside.

                          Eason does a good job making it seem thats he's not there, because he never is.. he gets blown off the ball and is like a bad Mike.. he makes the plays 5-10 yards downfield.

                              Frankly I think we should run a 4-3.

                              Why?

                              Because it limits Smiths loss and adds some youth and speed up front. Not to mention it's something no one has seen.

                              DL:

                              Woodley ~ Hampton ~ Keisel ~ McBean
                              Haggans ~ Hokie ~ Kirschke ~ Harrison

                              LB:

                              Harrison ~ Farrior ~ Timmons
                              Foote ~ Kreidwaldt ~ Frazier

                              Woodley ~
