Yeah! Woodley is a beast. Can't wait to see how many sacks he can pile on this year. Good luck to him against the Browns' offensive line.

Sorry, but what a joke. Just proves that we as Steeler fans can find NFL.com to vote on.

He wasnt even the best defensive player on the Steelers last week. I thought James Harrison had a better afternoon and now that I look at the stats Harrison had just as many sacks as Woodley had tackles.....3.

Just another NFL popularity contest that we won. Yahoo!!

I kinda agree with Jackson. Why wasn't Harrison even in the running?

I don't understand why anyone would "poo-poo" a Steeler winning Player of the Week honors. That just doesn't make any sense.

Maybe because Woodley had a pick and also a fumble recovery to go along with the sacks and tackles. Secondly, it was his FIRST EVER START. Finally he was blowing up the Texans offense when he wasn't making sacks and picking off passes. Harrison had a typical game for his career and that is why he did not get nominated. Quit hating on a guy who had an amazing play in his first year as a starting OLB for the steelers who should be amazing for years to come. Maybe you can boo him next game cause he won and ruin his confidence like the Titans are doing with Vince.
