Steelers DE Ziggy Hood Out For More 'Splash Plays'
Ziggy Hood knows in the increasingly expansive world of social media, everything he does on the football field will be scrutinized.
The Steelers defensive end keeps his distance from cyberspace, in part, because he views it as a distraction.
It's not that Hood's skin isn't thick enough. It's about focusing on his responsibilities with football and family.
“I can care less what other people think,” Hood said. “I guarantee you if those folks played this position, they wouldn't last one day doing it.”
Hood, who didn't miss a game his first four seasons, enters this year carrying the burden of greater expectations. His detractors are demanding he bolster his numbers from 2012: three sacks, 40 tackles and no forced fumbles.
“I do whatever coaches tell me to do, and if that is to bring the heat on the quarterback, then I'll do it,” Hood said. “I'm never trying to make a play for myself. It's all about the team.”
