I'm sorry but there hasn't been enough talk about Lewis. What am I missing here? He has been freakin hot. When was the last time you saw a db for Pittsburgh knock down so many passes? And they are most often big plays.

Really why is no one really talking about him?

I think Worilds has definitely earned more snaps. It's hard to flat-out play him over Woodley because Woodley has been so great in the past, but as far as this season goes Worilds has been far better. I don't know about a planned rotation but considering Woodley won't be 100% for a while having Worilds fill in for him and spell him often when he comes back is a good idea.

I do think Worilds has shown this season he deserves to be given a legitimate shot as Harrison's replacement when Harrison finally leaves. I don't think we need to be taking an OLB early in the draft anymore like a lot of people wanted to before the season.

The only thing that keeps these guys under the radar is turnovers and interceptions. Even though these guys are maniacs with pass's defended, we've let INT's slip through our hands game by game and that hurts our notoriety as a unit around the league.

Still, let teams keep passing on us! These dudes are STUDS.

I heard something about Worilds being Harrisons new workout partner. Hopefully this will help him with his strength and get his body conditioned properly so he stays healthy.

He's taking Harrison's spot. No way we pay Silverback $7M for his last year at his age and health.

I hope it stays that way till next year, we NEED to sign Lewis this off season.

Hopefully we can keep Harrison another season, probably restructure. Woodley can't stay on the field and the backers are thin and what makes this defense tick.

What happens the first time Woodley pulls a hammy and can't play?
We have no alternative for the outside positions.

I still think we lack some depth at OLB, and like another poster said, what happens when Woodley pulls another hammy? If someone drops far in the draft, I would grab him. The Steelers are known for loading up on LB's....
