He would actually be a #1 defensive linemen on most teams since most teams run a 4-3 :P

I wonder if any Steeler player secretly looks at this forum everyday to read the bad/good things we say.

Woodley is hellish to have to game plan against because you constantly have to play pick your poison with him and Harrison. take him away and Harrison will see non-stop double and triple teams. i've seen him push tackles into the QB a number of times this season and play some nice pass defense.. it may not show up in the stats, but he's doing his job pretty well.

The trend is he comes in too heavy, and needs to play himself into
form and then will come on like gangbusters. He is playing for his
next contract - so if he can, he WILL put up huge #s before the season
is over. I have watched him; he is playing hard.

Woodley is only one behind league lead for linebackers in passes defensed. He's got quite a few pressures and qb hurries as well.

He's not a one trick pony, his skills are being expanded by LeBeau. He's elite, the stats will be there in time.

He played horrible against the Ravens. There were extra guys on Harrison's side all game while Woodley was 1-on-1 against a greenhorn RT. He should have destroyed the guy but instead was a non-factor all game.

It seems to me he hasn't been the same LaMarr Woodley of 2008.


2008 Stats
41 tackles, 19 assists, 11.5 sacks, 3 passes defensed, 1 INT, 2 FF

2009 Stats
50 tackles, 12 assists, 13.5 sacks, 1 FF

2010 Stats (so far)
10 tackles, 6 assists, 2 sacks, 3 passes defenses, 1 INT, 1 FF
(on pace to destroy the last two year's numbers)

Both this year, and last year, they started the season off by dropping him into a shallow zone on many plays. Chalk it up to the normal developement of a former defensive end into a 3-4 OLB....Lebeau is working on his pass defense skills and not making him into a one-trick pony.

Also he's played the run extremeley well this year. The bottom line the defense is giving up an average of like 12 points a game, Lamar's a big part of that. The sacks will come, by seasons end he'll have somewhere around 12-15 of them. .
Thank you.

As usual, zulater adds sanity back to an embarrassing thread....

He's a slow starter. That's all. He'll still get paid too and before you think you won't pay him, ask yourself if you really want Jason Worilds or Thad Gibson starting next year. I don't. I wouldn't even be comfortable handing the job to one of them.

Wood is still a good player. He shuts the run down. The pass rush is a little slow to get going but he's still very solid out there.

You have the game film? You watched it knowing his assignments and know that he didn't do his job? You understand what a 3 step drop is as opposed to a 7 step drop and how teams are going to sacrifice downfield yardage for safe plays because of our OLB's?
