It should come as no surprise that ESPN is absolutely in love with the Pittsburgh Steelers defense, because quite frankly, that defense alone gives them not only hours of discussion, but also hours of highlight film material.

Not really surprised, and I can't really argue with Willis being the number one guy, he's a freak of nature, no doubt. Was a nice little surprise to see Timmons in the top 20 as well.

I think Timmons deserved top 10 over Woodley, especially after last season or maybe they both should have been there giving us 3 in the top 10.

k, you cant be serious about woodley being average in '09 - he had 13.5 sacks ..

im just glad to see that mattews has not been prematurely crowned ..

how many of those 13.5 were in the first half of the year...IIRC it wasnt very many, he was a second half of the year player and inconsitancy are just as common as dominance with him.

good point.. ive never taken the time to quantify the 2nd half player argument so i looked it up - he had 2 sacks the first half of the season and they came in one game ..

i think inconsistent is a better label than average tho ..

dont get me wrong, i like woodley, certainly would rather have to rely on him than worilds....i just think hes overrated a little bit and i think timmons is really underrated.
