Actually, three was a quote last week, about how the hurry up tires him out.

I love BB, but I was like "Uh... what???"

I think we should have sat him for three years while he studies the complexities of the LeBeau defense. After all, that's the Steeler way.

Kovacevic: Get Jarvis back on the field


I know Jones was terrible Sunday in Oakland. I know he couldn't keep outside contain on Terrelle Pryor, couldn't keep up with pass coverage, couldn't mount any real pressure much less collect his first NFL sack. If he were being graded, he'd get maybe a D-minus.

And so what?

For this team, at 2-5 and heading nowhere, at a pivoting point like no other in a decade or more, this kid needs to play. He needs to learn. He needs to get better. He needs a meaningful stretch in which to get comfortable after being hampered by a preseason chest injury and, more recently, the concussion.

Worilds is a fourth-year guy, he's blown his shot at replacing James Harrison, and he won't even be around next season. He's an unrestricted free agent, and there's no chance the cap-constrained Steelers will keep a third outside linebacker at open-market rates.

So what's the point?

Sorry, but the concept of actual contention burned up Sunday in Pryor's vapor trails.

The shifting of priorities should be happening now. The Steelers could be — should be — working simultaneously to win Sunday's game and to get the best out of this entire draft class that had everyone glowing not so long ago.

Second-rounder Le'Veon Bell is the No. 1 running back, which is wonderful.

But third-round wide receiver Markus Wheaton was barely getting onto the field before breaking a finger.

And what of fourth-round safety Shamarko Thomas?

He is seeing a decent amount of time in Dick LeBeau's dime and “quarter” formations that go heavy on defensive backs and allow Troy Polamalu to hover near the line. In effect, Thomas has covered Polamalu's old spot.

But why not more?

Ryan Clark, the other veteran safety, is 34, is having a miserable season and, like Worilds, will become an unrestricted free agent. There's nothing left for him to see, maybe nothing he can do to salvage the Steelers' season. In contrast, imagine the jump-start Thomas would get on his career by facing the likes of Brady, Joe Flacco and Aaron Rodgers.

Yeah, I know. It's all about Sunday's game, right?

Must explain why LaMarr Woodley, author of zero tackles and zero assists in Oakland, will line up as the other outside linebacker in Foxborough.

Let the kid watch and learn.

Is it just me or does Jones have smaller arms than most place kickers?

He's headed that way - at least until Worilds is dumped next year, his rookie contract is up and all the talk is he won't be re-signed

No he is extremely thin framed and weak. I don't think he will ever be able to add the stremgth he needs to play the position

I hope we didn't whiff on this one. If so, it could really set us back. I never liked the pick. Believe me, I want to be wrong! PLEASE prove me wrong Jarvis!

Woodley knows the feeling

LaMarr Woodley can understand why Jarvis Jones might be struggling a little bit in Dick LeBeau's defense to the point he was demoted from his starting job at right outside linebacker

"All linebackers that come in, if a first-rounder or free agent, everyone struggles with this defense," Woodley said.

"This is a hard defense to learn, playing this 3-4 defense. We all struggled with it. I definitely know as a rookie I struggled with this defense."

Unlike Jones, who played outside linebacker in Georgia's 3-4 defense, Woodley played end in Michigan's 4-3 defense.

He did not start as a rookie -- indeed, Jones was the only outside linebacker to win a starting job in the 3-4 in 31 years here.

"I didn't understand the linebacker position," said Woodley, who has half the team's 10 sacks and ranks fifth on their career list with 57.

"It was just me studying the playbook and getting a better understanding of the whole position."

He said he has not tried to boost Jones' morale since the demotion came to light Tuesday.

"You have to motivate yourself. You have to do it yourself. That's how I feel about it. Nothing against Jarvis.

"We talk every day. His spirit is not low. His spirit is high.

"If his spirit was low, I'd talk to him, but his spirits are high."
