I'm not convinced anymore of Woodley - as a fan, he needs to show me a lot more pressure than what he's generating

i don't want to here any more coverage assignment bull - I've seen enough of where he was supposed to apply pressure and has gotten absolutely no push - he seems extremely slow and weak in comparison to what he has done in the past

He also needs to work on something on than just trying to rush in a straight line or go around - it doesn't work

A coach being that outspoken about his conditioning habits says a lot

Well, he's not under contract, so we can't cut him.

But he's also not good enough to bring back. He rarely commands double teams anymore and loses his feet too much.

He's done, in other words.

You all do recall Hamp was recovering from an ACL injury most of the season right? Just like Harrison was recovering from a knee injury. It is possible they both were finally healthy the last few games and it had nothing to do with "playing back into game shape". I am not saying keep or cut anyone, just bringing up a valid point which seems to be missed in this thread.

Thanks for giving the "Pro-Veteran" camp more fuel

Its a good point. I just think we have to choose to spend wisely on the players we have on the roster and I think we have more younger guys waiting to clog up the middle of the field at NT....than we have guys at OLB prepared to pressure the QB.

I'd let Hampton go and focus on restructuring Harrison and extending contracts to Lewis, Ramon Foster and Dwyer.

Yeah, if this team lets Lewis and Wallace walk for Keisel, Hampton, Foote, etc., it's setting up for a long stretch of bad seasons. These guys are on their last legs and declining, Lewis and Wallace are in the primes, primes that will hopefully not be spent on AFC competitors to the Steelers.

Keisel is still under contract. Keep Lewis at all costs, and Wallace if the money is right. But we also need to restructure our vets, NOT get rid of them all.

It all boils down to two words, "NO PRESSURE".
We aint getting no pressure on their QB's, so its time to fix that problem.
They've fattened their bank accounts and bellies, so its time for some new faces.
I get hooked on seeing the same faces in the line-up and hate it when one has been released, but I get over it and the seasons keep on coming when they are gone.

Just happy you ain't our GM. We have one not that good year pressure waise and you will overwhole our whole team and "fix" everything with new faces. Their goes our identity. I agree we can't leave everything the way it is but because of age. When I think of next season having a healthy James Harrison und Lamarr Woodley the pressure problem is solved. Till they prove me wrong and they didn't disappoint me a lot since they're here. We should look at the future and draft somebody at OLB but as far as I concern we have a very good team going into next year. That can create pressure!!!
