He's been eating too much dough and needs to get his ass back in shape.

We could work out an agreement with another team, sign him to an extension and then trade him to said team. All the while knowing he would be traded but he wouldn't be a cap hit on us, just on the other team.

Yeah Woodley's been a disappointment since his extension. Frustrating because when he's on, he's on but with Harrison aging, he needed to step up this year and he didn't do that. ANd that sucks.

holy crap - two people kinda agreed me with, IN A ROW

marking it down - you won't live it down either!

Seems like injury or focus become a problem lately after extensions - is it me, or are the Steelers re-signing at too high a price and too quickly?

I can't remember Woodley's body of work that got him that extension. Was it his flash the rookie season and then his rampage up to SB XLIII? I think he was pretty good in 09 and 10, but got injured in both right?

It's sad what happened to Wallace. He seemed like a bright eyed, bright smiled kid who just wanted to show he belonged. Always seemed to go the extra mile and was a helluva deep threat. The stone hands really started the 2nd half of last year. These WR's are always up in their own heads, that's what makes them great, that it seems like a mental issue. He had no issues prior to that with drops, that I remember. And I remember reading that even his agent was telling him to take the money and he basically said NO. Either way, he's gone and we need to find a new 4th (which is really a true #1). Woodley was so dissappointing......

I don't know where you read this, but it's probably bullshit. Every single report coming out was that Bus Cook was the problem and was trying to nickle and dime the Steelers all he could to try and get more guaranteed money. The simple fact of the matter is, we don't know whether or not Mike or Bus or even the Steelers were the problem here because we weren't in those negotiating rooms when it all took place. That being said, I very, very much doubt Wallace and the Steelers were the problem.

If I had to guess, I would say that he wasn't opposed to the 5 year / 50 million we offered him but Bussy took exception to the amount that was guaranteed and, Mike being young, was just listening to his agent. He doesn't have the business skills that a Brandon Marshall has in which he doesn't even really need an agent and can negotiate himself. It's a guess, but it's based on what a dick Bus Cook is and how the Steelers organization works.

you said dick Bus Cook, and I couldn't help but think of Dick Butkus - sorry, had to chuckle

Yeah I couldn't agree with you more.

Last year was the first bad year Woodley has had.

He had 9 sacks in 10 games in 2011. Then he got extended. Then he did absolutely nothing.

He will be back in form I am sure. As for Wallace...

There is a way to trade Wallace but it wouldn't work.

If you franchise tagged Wallace and then traded him.

Wallace's salary would be huge and no team would want him but a traded franchise tagged player does not count as a salary cap penalty when they are traded.

And another thing!

Brown is capable of being the #1. He is almost exactly the same player Santonio Holmes was. I could see Brown getting 80-90 catches per year. Sanders, Miller and the RBs would make up the slack as would Cotchery.

He was on pace for 81 receptions this year. He just missed 3 games. He is only going to get better. He is young and a hard worker so cheer up guys.

If Wallace goes to the Pats he will break all of Randy Moss' records. That's how the football gods work.

Brown might be able to be a #1wr but he really hasn't shown anything to prove he is. He just can't get the touchdowns a #1 WR should even with Wallace having a down year.
