Worilds had a monster sack on Manning in the opener. That is really all I remember from him this season.

Harrison, you can tell, is either scared of reinjuring himself, or is still not 100% from his injury. I noticed he can't do his "spin move" anymore when going up against linemen.

He looked good in the Eagles game though. He got 3 hit on Vick, and you could tell Vick wanted none of that when Harrison got close. I sure hope he does something Sunday night. Would love to see him plant Flacco on his ass.

If he wasn't held every play he would still be a top pass rusher. The official stance of the NFL evidently is to ignore the obvious as long as it puts Harrison at a disadvantage, so he is going to continue to struggle till he can get as low as he used to when running around offensive tackles. He's always been held this much, in 2010 he might as well of been pulling a plow, yet he's so bad ass that he still overcame it. He will generate a good pass rush again as soon as his knee allows it (if it ever does again). He is used in pass coverage a lot more now and it's likely because he is struggling in the pass rush. Either way he's better then Carter/Worilds, at least the run D is better with Harrison back. What I wonder is why Woodley is in pass coverage so much. He should be unleahsed on opposing QB's IMO.

I expect him to hit a hot streak at some point in the next few weeks, and the same goes for Woodley.

Brother I hope you are right.

It is definitely Woodleys turn to have a MONSTER game

He's clearly not 100%, But he is desperately needed and he's a warrior so what he has left he lays it out on the field....But just because he's not going around and over O-lineman doesn't mean Deebo is gone forever...he just needs time to heal...

I've also seen Harrison get the SHIT held out of him because of him actually beating his man one on one. This is a dude that had surgery, on his KNEE, in August. He didn't participate in ANY team activities as far as conditioning was concerned. There's STILL a whole half-season to play and he's currently working his way into playing shape. He's NOT in top form, but his presence still needs to be accounted for.

I'd take a 70% James Harrison over most of the starting OLB's today! Dude is still a beast.

he hasn't been taking over games like he has been in the past, but he's been playing solid as far as sticking to his assignments and sealing the edge.

He gets choke holds all the time in every game. He needs to learn the Dwight Freeney move!

Harrison gets held all the time, and it never draws a flag. Goodell makes sure of it.
