Default Timmons is AFC Defensive Player of the Week

Lawrence Timmons Is Your Defensive Player of the Week
Posted on October 20, 2010 by adam
http://www.steelerslounge.com/2010/1...e-player-week/

Heres some good news for a Steelers linebacker: Lawrence Timmons was named the AFCs defensive player of the week for his 11 tackle, two sack, one interception performance against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, making him the second Steeler to take home the award this season.

James Harrison, of course, was the other, which probably means that Timmons can expect a $100,000 fine in the coming weeks for being such a dominating machine.


It truly is a breakout season for the 2007 first-round pick. Through five games hes leading the team in tackles (and is fifth in the NFL), tackles for loss, has three sacks, an interception, a forced fumble and two pass defenses.

Hes all over the field, disrupting everything. Basically, hes the Troy Polamalu of the linebacker unit.

He's actually 4th in the NFL. He's tied for total tackles with Tulloch, but he has more solo tackles which puts him higher. And he has 3 pass defenses... lol

He has been having a very good year. He only had 78 total tackles last year, he already has 59 this year, and he's so fast that he's actually taking all the tackles to himself. Usually James Farrior is in the top 10 with tackles inthe league while leading the team, he isn't even in the top 50, and only has 19 solo tackles to Timmons 42.
For anyone who doesn't know, Farrior was almost named defensive player of the year twice.

Farrior still a smart player and a dominating run stopper, if the defense can play well for the rest of the year and take the team to the superbowl, I think this group can go down as one of the most dominating linebacking corps.

As much as I love Timmons, his recent outstanding play basically solidifies that either Woodley or Harrison (more likely the latter after the events of the past week) won't be on the team much longer. We can't afford to keep 3 elite linebackers (Well we could but we'd have to sacrifice talent at another position with far less depth). :(

He'd be 1st if it wasn't for the Bye-Week

Woodley or Harrison wont be on the team long? Thankfully Batch or Dixon didnt pass for 400 yards, you would have Ben gone too.

Seriously? Timmons in the inside LB, not a line pass rusher. Timmons is speed not brute strenght. Timmons is not going to take Woodley or Harrisons position. What occurs with Harrison and woodley on the field, allows Timmons to prosper even more.

Awesome Points Mom . . He is all over the field just like Troy used to be. It just seems like Troy is not doing that as much this year on a Consistent basis like he usually does. I love Timmons and what he is bringing to our defense. I for one was wondering after last year if he was what Tomlin thought he would be when he drafted him, but the guy is making huge plays now and I am glad that he is in Black n Gold.

In my opinion Curtain, we will see Woodley as our Franchise Player next season. No way the Steelers let him go like that . . . No Way

Harrison could be traded, he takes up a lot of cap space, unless he retires.
Woodley's contract is up this offseason... as well as Troy's and some other key players on both offense and defense. Kicking off Batch and Dixon wont free up cap, because Steelers still need back up quarterbacks, and Leftwich is probably one of the more expensive ones due to his history as a starter.

I doubt Steelers will let Woodley go, and he said he doesn't want a massive deal like Harrison has. Troy, though he says his faith keeps him against ego and greed, he still signed a huge $30 mil contract and there's he could go for a similar deal again this offseason. This means when Timmons time comes to renew his contract, the team might not be able to afford him if he's noticed as an elite linebacker, he'll get better offers from other teams.
