Play the young'uns. It's time.
i wouldn't want to trade woodley just yet. have him work out with that trainer that worked with ziggy in the offseason. if he's in shape he can be great, he just needs that motivation to stay in shape before the season starts

Woodley, Woodley, Woodley!...

Seriously, the Steelers absolutely suck at trading and should never try to trade a player again.

I don't know about trading our own players but I remember a certain trade with the rams in 1996 that worked out pretty well.

I personally wouldn't trade anyone. Can't think of too many that have really ever worked out. Except Bettis of course!

my next favorite pickup was in free agency in 01/02 - a certain guy that used to play for the Jets . . .

Maybe I am just sentimental but I want Troy to retire a Steeler. While sure it woukd be difficult to trade Harrison it wouldn't be impossible.

I can't believe how many people want to trade Woodley. He's played hard since we drafted him, never held out for more money, even when he was playing far above his contract, and has had 1 down year, and by all accounts his dismal year this year was due to conditioning, not a bad attitude. He's still young and in his prime, if he can get back into shape he'll be just fine.

Give him this year to get back into proper shape and get back to his 2011 form.
Again with the sacks. There is more to being a LB than sacks. People become so brainwashed when it comes to sacks. If Woodley gets a sack in a game the fans think he had an awesome outing.

If Woodley gets into shape, around 250, then he will be better, but he still has to put forth effort on all plays. No more loafing around.

If someone wanted to trade for Woodley it would amazing. I would jump on that in an instant. To get rid of that $13,000,000 burden would do wonders for the cap.

What potential? Some sacks? I would like to see him stop the run/contain with consistency. He is generally handled by a lone TE. He also has a history of disappearing for stretches. He is being paid an elite salary, but he is not an elite LB.

Fyi, Woodley never said he was going to work out with Shaw. From what I read Shaw said he could help him. It remains to be seen if Woodley can put forth the effort to be in shape. I am not holding my breath.

Would that mean working hard?
