Default Timmons a Bust? Your thoughts?

The more I think aboiut it the more dissapointing Timmons has become. As a first round pick he didnt immediately crack the starting line up and other than 2010 hasnt made any impact, game changing plays our ILB should make.

Last year he had an opportunity to be a game changer and dissappeared. As an OLB he did nothing and when back inside seemed to be a step behind RBs and TEs in coverage.

The excuse he had to be moved around a lot last year is exactly that, an excuse. I remember another #94 (Chad Brown) who was moved outside when Greg Lloyd went down in 1996 and made the pro bowl Thats what I expect from a first round pick.

What are your thoughts?

Man ask yourself this...

5 years ago, how closely was I following NFL players?

If you are like me then you will say pretty close but also realize that the coverage guys get now is unreal. Sure, some guys are instant game changers but most develop over time. Timmons is developing just fine. Woodley gets more shine because he came in at the same time and has recorded a bunch of sacks.. It may seem as though Woodley is miles ahead of Timmons. I beg to differ. They play different positions and soon, if not already, Timmons will be quarterbacking the defense. His numbers will be overshadowed but as a player, I think he is really solid. FAR FAR FAR FAR far from a bust. What round was he even drafted in?

Not every player will be a star but instead, exactly what the team needs. True it may seem like Timmons regressed last season, but then again, Didn't the whole front 7 underachieve this year according to our "expectations"? When Casey Hampton is getting blown 5 yards into the second level, what effect does it have on both MLBers?

he definatly isnt what we expected when we drafted him. he is really good but will never be great. he definatly has the talent but i dont see him being a pro bowler like a ray lewis. of course most will defend him because he is a steeler but i would say our 2nd round pick that year far outplayed our 1st rounder

#1 defense in total yards, passing, and scoring.

lebeau said timmons had a great years, especially considering he had to play 3 of the 4 linebacker positions.

i'll take lebeaus word for it.

What has he done? Timmons as a first round player in the system now for 6 years with his physical ability should have made at least a pro bowl or been a top 10 at his position at least in the AFC. He has not met expectations at all. The thing with Steelers fans when it comes to defensive players is we get blinded by love and they can do no wrong. Timmons was NOT worth the extension he got and we are still waiting for the breakthrough series of games.

Not sure if you guys watch the games.
