McBean was brought back for depth. He won't play much if at all. Woodley has been hurt. I can't get too excited about Eason either. Not many other options if Woodley isn't at full speed.

woodley would get manhandled as a DE in a 3-4 scheme. he wasnt drafted to play DE in a 3-4 scheme, so he wont be playing it.

That pretty much sums it up.

I love Woodley. I understand he is hurt right now, but I'll be the first to say he should be in more often on obvious passing situations. I like the way he rushes off the edge of a 4man line, but he probably would get manhandled as an everydown DE in the 3-4.

A) He's too small
B) The 3-4 DL's job is to be big and play big, taking up blockers to free up the LB's to make plays.

With due respect, this reminds me of the Anthony Smith situation coming into camp this year. How often did we see a posts clamoring for Smith to start over Clark? What are the opinions about that now? Sometimes believe it or not the coaches, who see these guys every day, have a little more insight than those of us that watch them on TV, or open practices during camp. I think fans get enamored with big hits and such and tend to ignore, or not know, if a player is really playing their position well on a down-by-down basis. The little I have seen from Woodley gives me hope he will be a good linebacker, but if the coaches prefer to use players who are more accustomed to the 3-4 DE position over Woodley I can hardly argue against that with any credibility.

Woodley might gets some reps in because in Tomlins press conference he spoke that its gonna take about 3 men to make up for Smith's position and i feel we may see woodley at that position this week or next!

just because someone is a 4-3 lineman means nothing, keisel played a lot of LB in college yet he plays DE. woodley runs a 4.5 roughly and not being at full speed could still make him an athletic lineman. i like mcbean anyway, he was a fourth rounder, most of those guys get playing time and he ended up on the practice squad. he might not be the next dwight freeney or anything but this guy is really good and the steelers have been keeping a big eye on him since his junior year in college.
