Is LaMarr Woodley regressing/disappearing???
 
It seems like he hasn't done much at all this year.

Last year he finished off well, but had a mediocre season for the most part.

It seems to me he hasn't been the same LaMarr Woodley of 2008.

he's the 2nd coming of Jason GilDong

lol no honestly I don't know. he seems to never be in shape in the beginning of the season but starts to pull it together midseason. If he played in midseason form for the entire season though, he'd be a monster.

Though perhaps the coaching staff saw something they didn't like in him, which is why he hasn't had a contract extension and we drafted worrilds and thaddeus gibson.

If he dosnt pick it up he may never get a contract. He wants paid like a top 5 LB and steelers will only do that if he plays like one

I was thinking the same thing.

I thought he could become our premiere pass, but he seems to be more of Robin to (Harrison's) Batman.

He has one solid pass rush move and thats the bull rush. He often gets tooled by a RB if left alone to make the tackle. I think he has been a great compliment to harrison who has the speed/strength combo to play the run and pass equally well. I thinkhe does the bull rush so often so it forces the qb into harrison or the other d-lineman. He can also drop into coverage and make decent plays which is why he fits well in our scheme. He does seem out of shape though which concerns me. If you can't play the whole game 100% they need to sit him, especially late in the game when you desperately need the pressure. I would love to see a guy like sylvester get a shot at rushing the passer once and a while. Him and worilds have that non stop motor, remind me of timmons when he was raw.

Speaking of, who doesn't wish we had a timmons clone manning the other ILB spot? Kid is a BEAST. And everyone was calling him a bust :sofunny: Him and Mendy are making a lot of nancies eat crow.

Timmons is taking the defense over.........Im lovin his play......Its tough to get sacks sometimes when they know your coming........They start piling up after the bye.....no doubt Lamar will come around......He is solid.....

God, we are a bunch of primadonnas in Steelerland. We have pretty much hands down the best LB corps in the league and we're whining because Woodley's record consecutive games-with-a-sack streak came to an end. :rolleyes:

C'mon man, you should know by now it's '19-0 with every record being broken' or bust in Steelerland!

I'd give him a few more games before saying he's disappearing...
