Default Re: Why Was Steelers ILB Lawrence Timmons Ignored in 2012?

This kind of went off topic, but LT has been playing at a high level and has been our best Linebacker for the last three years. In 2010 and 2011 it was neck and neck between him and Woodley, but in 2012 Woods took a moon-jump sized leap backward and will have to recover from it this season (I figure I'm going to refer to the 2013 season as 'this season' from now on because I want to forget about 2012).

It's debatable if he was playing at a Pro-Bowl level since '10, but this year there wasn't a better overall ILB in the AFC than Timmons. It's unfortunate that he gets no recognition and gets overshadowed because of the lack of name recognition while guys like Ray Lewis - who contributed next to nothing - get in. Well, people know who he is now and other guys are right, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he gets in next year.

When Harrison leaves the team will Timmons switch to ROLB? Nope. Timmons is an ILB the Steelers will look elsewhere to fill the ROLB role. Timmons is a poor OLB but a great ILB.

Chad Brown took over for Lloyd due to injury. If Greg Lloyd had not been a Steeler when Brown joined the team then Brown would never have played a single snap at ILB. Brown played ILB because Greene and Lloyd were established veterans at OLB. Brown played ILB because he was better at ILB than Jerry Olsavsky.

As it stands Brown played 81% of his career at OLB. If Lloyd and Greene had not been on the Steelers in 93 when Brown was signed he would have played 100% of his career at OLB. Period.

You are wrong. Again. No need to bring up this post in 2 other threads or every time you see my name. You can spare me the ad hominem attacks- I rather enjoy the name calling.
