Nice!!!! Wood had a real solid 2nd half of the year. After starting off a bit slow he came on the last 2 1/2 months of the reagular season and really became a force. The sky is the limit for this dude. If Timmons stays healthy both he and Wood are going to be terrific for us for a long time to come. Congrats!!





Woodley added to Pro Bowl roster

LaMarr Woodley will be joining James Harrison at the Pro Bowl after all.

Woodley, the Steelers’ third-year outside linebacker who led the team with 13.5 sacks this season, has been added to the AFC roster for the game, which will be played on the Sunday before Super Bowl XLIV in Fort Lauderdale. He replaces Houston’s Brian Cushing, who withdrew from the game because of a variety of injuries.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Cushing, voted the NFL defensive rookie of the year, has foot, knee and rib injuries, along with a broken pinkie finger that may require surgery.

“I am really disappointed not to play in this year’s Pro Bowl,” Cushing said. “This was a long season and due to several injuries, specifically my knee and finger, we've made a decision to rest my body.”

The three linebackers initially voted to the AFC’s roster for the Pro Bowl were Harrison and Denver’s Elvis Dumervil as the starters, with Cushing as the backup. Woodley was a first alternate in that voting, and therefore became the first to be added when Cushing was unable to participate.

In his second season as a full-time starter, Woodley set a franchise record by recording at least half a sack in eight straight games, and during those eight games he recorded 11.5 sacks. Greg Lloyd held the previous record, which was a six-game streak during the 1994 season.

Woodley’s streak actually can be considered still active, because he did it during the final eight games of the 2009 regular season.

“He’s a guy who’s come on in the late part of the season all three years he’s been here; evidently that’s a part of his game,” said Coach Mike Tomlin. “It’s about rhythm, his moves come together, he develops a feel for it, and he sharpens his sword over the course of the season, which is good. You look for guys who are on the rise as the season goes on, and he’s proven through his first three years in the league that that’s kind of how he plays the game. And that’s what you need; you need guys whose arrows are pointing up at the end of the road.”

F the Colts and Peyton Manning. I don't see how anyone can be a fan of that overrated crybaby. Remember this is the same ******* who lost on purpose to keep the Steelers out of the playoffs. Hopefully it bites him in the *** and the Jets win.

wow... only thing i meant was if Colts go to SB Dallas Clark wouldnt go to the PB so Heath would get the nod as being an alt

FYI Payton didnt "lose on purpose" the coaching staff pulled everyone... I could care less about the AFC, I hate all NY teams and Rex. And Colts get way too much pub. IMO one of the NFC teams will win it all anyways...

He had a very good year, coming into his own in the 2nd half of the year, showing there isn't only 1 pass rushing OLB for Pitt!!!
