Default L. Woodley NOT selected for pro-bowl

he was named an alternate. being that 6 ravens made it, he was probably snubbed for that piece of shit T. Suggcks.

we know harrison and porter are the other 2.

Lamaar Woodley is a behemoth and he ATLEAST deserves a Pro Bowl. but hey, if i was Woodley, i think i'd prefer a Super Bowl ring over a Pro Bowl nod. =)

I LOVE WOODLEY ...BUT I can understand the Suggs selection . Suggs doesn't have a pass rusher opposite him to aid him and is one of the best run defenders in the NFL among DEs/LBs. He is more of a true DE in that he is versatile enough to drop into coverage(something I don't think Woodley is very good at at this stage in his game).

Plus, as SteelCityKing put it, I don't think Woodley is that broken hearted about it. He would much rather have a Super Bowl ring. I think they should just do away with the Pro-Bowl altogether.

yep...only thing better than a Superbowl Ring...is to be a Pro-Bowl MVP.

The Steelers can't afford to pay all those contract "pro-bowl" bonuses anyway.

Except maybe Ray Lewis, Woodley is lightyears ahead of any of the Ravens LBer's. Especially Suggs.

Woodley's pressure forced Flaccid's game clinching INT last week.

How in the hell do you not take Woodley! This guy is a beast of a Linebacker and only going to get better. Well this will not be the first time Steelers have been snubbed.

While I detest the Raturds I understand why Suggs was chosen over Woodley. Good post Steelcitygal. While it won't be recieved well on this board I agree with you. Being an alternate isn't such a bad thing. It means he was considered, a close second if you will. And that is nothing to scoff at.
