He plays the run better than Woodley.

Hey guys, whats the best way to get stink out of tennis shoes?
Dryer Softener sheets like Bounce, or leaving them at the dump I learned this off of another Steeler Fan site):. Cleaning the dog doo of the bottoms may help.

As for replacing Harrison, the Harrison that left, was not the DOPY Harrison of 2008. We are replacing the 2011-2012 version with a younger, hopefully healthier unit. I can't help but think this is going to be an upgrade.

Per down played, Worilds has registered a higher percentage of tackles, but hasn't shown the knack for the big game changing play that Woodley has.

Most of my frustration with Woodley hasn't been so much about his weight, but having a guy that can be so disruptive when he wants to, settle for not doing much of anything for most of the game. Preferring to play patty cake with TEs and RBs for 20 plays or so a game, instead of blowing things up isn't getting things done IMO..

I agree with your comment about Harrison. Last year he was not in his DPOY form. His abilities were not on full display, and he hasn't been the same player recently. IMO the surgeries he had may have did him in. This probably caused a decline in his durability. And go figure he is a hard-hitting, bruising linebacker. That really takes its toll over the years. It's time the younger Steelers step in to his role. I'm anxious to see what Worilds and Jones have to offer. Who says a year from now they can't be similar to Harrison in terms of ability? Anything is possible.

TEs and RBs pretty much handle Woodley. I still scratch my head over that absurd contract they gave him.

We'll find out this year about the value of that contract. He better be strong from day one this year.

When he should CLEARLY be running around and over those position players... I feel like he may be under some scrutiny if he does not perform in 2013. As you point out, talk about that contract might come up. He better keep his @$$ healthy and elevate his game. It's embarrassing if you can't get to the QB on a consistent basis when you're being paid that kind of $. With the Steelers' pass rush scheme and the function of the d-line to make holes for the LBs, there is no excuse. This leads me to say that sacks are something this team must pick up with greater regularity in order to be successful. Yes, we were the #1 overall defense last season. But that was based on yards allowed. Sacks, forced fumbles, interceptions are all greater measures of success, IMO.

Because from 2008 - 2010 he had 35 sacks. That's why they paid him.

In that span, Clay Matthews had 29.5 sacks. Terrell Suggs played two fewer games than LaMarr and registered 23.5 sacks. Tamba Hali played the same amount of games and registered 26 sacks. These are all players that are considered 'elite' at their position and are close to LaMarr's current contract.

In the 10 games he played in 2011 he registered 9 sacks, while playing two games after the Patriots game severely injured. So, he registered 9 sacks in the 8 games he was healthy.

But no, let's keeping hating on Woodley as if he hasn't accomplished anything in his career. In fact, let's trade the lazy prick.

I agree with you. Some fans are too hard on the guy. I think he has been a force for this team and at times has come up huge in big games. He has also put up great numbers and has had stretches of absolutely dominant play. Last year was a bad year. If he puts up another substandard year, he's going to hear about it. It's the nature of the game right now in the salary cap era.
