while true, he played how you would expect a starter to play against 2nd and 3rd teamers. he didn't just beat them, he dominated. woods was definitely a bright spot of this game any way you look at it.

He won't sneak up on anyone anymore this preseason. Anxious to see him and these ILBs next Monday.

Woods had six solo tackles, three assisted tackles and a sack. When was the last time any Steeler DL did this in the pre-season. IMO, Woods is stronger, bigger and more of a play maker than Hood. He deserves some time with the 1st team.

While some may view Woods the last DL player to make the team, Harrison, and Parker were once third string players too...until they got a chance to prove their stuff. I think Woods has earned a chance to prove his stuff.

I also liked what I saw out of rookie free agent Arnfelt. He's got a nice bull rush, yet also has the agility to make plays outside the line of scrimmage or in the back field. Check out his workout numbers...they are amazing for a 300 pound man. Dude has a 4.81 40, and benched 225 lbs 38 times. But above and beyond this, he's just coming into his own, and has good stamina.

Killer just has a fucked up sense of humor. You'll get used to it, don't worry.

Killer is more of a "Napalm in the morning" type of guy if you ask me.

Sometimes you look at life differently after you've been in the trenches.

Anywho, great effort by Woods.

....and I think Ta'amu looks like he may be cleaning up his act as well.

I cannot wait to see how they do the next few games.

I am certainly pulling for them..
