That seems to be the kind of player that the Steelers love to get their hands on isnt it?... I think the Steelers do the best in the league at seeing what a player/LB can do or be in the NFL and in their 3-4 defense. They do a great job of training the player to be what they need them to be. I was kind of skeptical about giving a 2nd year OLB the starting spot in the Steelers defense because it usually takes them longer to adjust, but this guy is special and I look forward to him being a terror to offense for many years to come..

I have to say I was shocked that we were still able to get Woodley when we did the year he had this year and he will only get better the sack record could be in danger before his time is done.

People weren't sure about him as a DE or OLB. He was looked at as to small to be an effective DE, but to big to be an effective OLB.

We definatly got the steal of the draft with him. He's going to be a great one. I was more excited about Woodley than I was about Timmons, and I was excited about Timmons to!

Congrats to the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins

2009 is the final year of James Harrison's contract and the NFL defensive player of the year will be 31 and a FREE AGENT. A long time might mean 2 years.
