I thought I read Tom had a request in to the Commish to suspend Woodley for the length of the game until he gets a 4 touchdown lead

Commish: "Tom - you know you're the man, but we can't make it look THAT obvious. Let's keep it in our pocket just in case you see them in the playoffs"

Tom: "Awe shucks Mr. Goodell I guess you're right. Will you tuck me in now?"

I'm already waiting for the Roger Goodell e-mail informing me of my $5,000 fine, by the way.

Default Re: James Farrior has become worthless to this defense

Wasn't there a thread about Troy having lost a step after the Raven's game? Farrior is having another solid year. The RB made a great move (with a minor push off) that got himself open (Timmons is pretty damned fast for an ILB and he got beat by the same move against the Ravens for a TD). I totally wouldn't expect Farrior to catch that guy after the reception .... Stephens-Howling is faster than every ILB in the league. You can blame Troy for tripping over the 40 yard line or Clark for getting blocked by a WR, but this bash on Farrior seems a little too personal. Oh and let's not forget, Sylvester is ranked as the #4 ILB ... so it's not like he would be next up if Farrior isn't cutting it.

Farrior has absolutley lost a step, but his leadership is so well respected by the other men in the huddle with him, and that is something that would be lacking if he were replaced by someone perhaps more physically in their prime, but not from a mental or leadership aspect. I'd like to see someone taking over some of his captain duties in the huddle, so perhaps next year it will be a smooth transition to the next defensive leader.

Is this how they came up with the name "the tuck rule"?

I don't disagree with the leadership aspect of this, but something tells me Sylvester isn't on the field because he either doesn't know the playbook or has to think it through first.

Farrior is having a solid year?

He's easily the worst player on our starting defense this year.

people thought farrior was worthless last year as well. they also thought william gay should be cut in favor of crezdon butler.

spoiled steelerfans just expect an all pro at every defensive and offensive position (except kicker where they are mildly content with average mediocrity).

Exactly, if Sly had a grasp of what he supposed to do and actually gave that indication in practice he would be getting snaps at ILB. He is however a beast on specials.
