Agreed - not defending Woodley - everyone could see he was fat

Every once in awhile Ron Cook writes a good article. It's always a nice surprise to see one come along.

Then you need to reassess because he can't control what his players say during the offseason. Expecting him to is ridiculous. Stoop nitpicking and looking for reasons to pin things on Tomlin when it has nothing to do with him.

I believe Hines was on record on more than one occassion talking about Ben, coaches, and the defense, but at least Hines had the balls to say it out in the open, not anonymously. As I said earlier, frankly, I don't want to hear this crap .You leave the fight on the field, and the verbage in the lockeroom where it belongs.

I have no problem with anonymous criticism by a player or out in the open criticism if the intention is to get a teammate to raise his sub-standard level of play.

Woodley sucked pure and simple. And he was fat. He regressed big time.

Hopefully he has some pride and this verbal kick in the ass motivates him to train harder.

I appreciate your position. I don't what or how anybody or anything that is going to light a fire under him, even himself. The guy has been paid more money than he knows what to do with, and has a few more bucks coming, if he can stay on the field. By the time he hits the field this year, most of that $61 million will have been paid out to him.

His main concern now is is health. Age wise he's pretty young, and should be able to land another decent contract when his current one expires, but he's going to have to remain in one piece until then to get it. I'm not looking for him playing balls out anytime soon under the circumstances, and will have to suffer through another two years of watching him playing patty cake with whatever TE or RB that happens to be in his area.

Difference between Woodley and Ben, is Ben is an unmitigated asshole. Plus, when Hines speaks, he speaks the truth. he and Bettis and Farrior were the heart, mind and soul of the Steelers the last 15 years.

what about his "bowling league" too? He's on Twitter and Facebook all the time talking about "current events", his bowling, stuff about other games/players, portrayals such as this, etc.
Meanwhile - i'm thinking "why aren't you just in the goddamn GYM????"

I don't want to hear about bowling leagues, magazine shoots, and various community service 'meet and greets'. Sure as hell doesn't seem to be much, if any, focus on the 2 things he needs to focus on - and i mean razor-sharp focus - football and working out/gym/getting in spectacular shape. I'm really starting to wonder if we'll ever see that out of him at this point...................
