LaMarr Woodley is known for speaking his mind, so it wasn’t a surprise to hear what he said during an interview on NFL Network’s Around the League Live Thursday.

“You all need to start putting the Pittsburgh Steelers in more of your highlights,” he told host Fran Charles. “Y’all don’t put us in enough highlights.

“I watch NFL Network all day everyday, even when they repeat the shows. Steelers, we get no love. Why is that?” he asked.

Charles vehemently disagreed and playfully denied the charge. Woodley’s ribbing was said in a friendly manner, but it doesn’t change his core point: He feels like the Steelers aren’t getting enough love.

I don’t know if his assertion is accurate, but I do know that when I watch NFL Network on Sundays, highlights from all the games are shown. However, in general, the Steelers have not received as much attention as usual. That’s probably because they started the season 2-2 and because they haven’t beaten an elite opponent. Give us a reason to talk about you, and we will.

Steelers fans may join the complaining and whine about the lack of respect from the national media, but they shouldn’t. We’ve learned many times that disrespect, real or imagined, is a motivating tool for athletes. This mentality can be a good thing for the Steelers.

Okay LaMarr, you have to pick your battles man. There are things worth complaining about, and there are things not worth complaining about. This is one of those things that you probably shouldn't open your big mouth for.

The Steelers haven't exactly lit up the highlight reel very often this year. Plus they haven't played in any marquee games to date except for the Ravens and Texans, both of which they lost.

They'll make the highlights in November with those next 3 games coming up against the Patriots, Ravens, and Bengals...well maybe not the Bengals but...LOL.

Make a play if you want to see yourself on NFLN or ESPN. Tackling a RB after four yards isn't highlight material.

The team hasn't had a lot of highlights but for what it's worth Mendenhall's68 yrd run and Wallace's Catches over 40 yds are bigger plays than Teabags 12 yrd touchdown run both of which were left of plays of the week while the latter made it so as much as it doesn't matter he has a point. Plus more than Sapp has railed about the age of the defense. We are dealing with prideful guys here .

I woudnt call it "complaining." it's not like he randomly brought it up in the lockerroom or something.

No, but he wasn't asked, "hey LaMarr, what do you think about the Steelers not being on NFLN?" He was just like, "why don't you guys put the Steelers on more often?"

Woodley likes to stir the pot more than probably most people think. With such a big presence as James Harrison on the team, sometimes other guys get overlooked but Wood is a mean SOB on the field and isn't afraid to talk the talk off the field too. If it weren't for the whole Men's Journal article debacle by Harrison this offseason, Woodley would have been the biggest news maker for the Steelers.

If they need the lack of highlights on NFL network to get them motivated, then they should return their bazillions of dollars back to the Steelers and take up needle point or something.

Oh and hey, Lamarr, here's a wild thought. Have some highlights first. Then NFL network will show them. Less talking, more highlights.

Lost is a bit of an understatement.

woodlley is right, i watch the Patriots nfl network all the time. the only time we are on is when we lose. when we win there are very few highlights. you currently watch..

the all winning palmer.. then brady, pats, pats coach, jets coach, martinez, newton, dalton, back to ponder, back to ginats, dallas, repeat back to the pats... throw in lots on the lions which is cool, they deserve some nfl time... then the lions talk starts up the packers , packers coach, rodgers, back to the pats.. then lombardi finishes off with the steelers are not real good routine.. he hates us...

I agree with Woodley on this...I've been bitching about this for the last few years...They cover the patriots, packers, and damn near everyone else all day everyday...even when the steelers win the superbowl, you don't really hear a lot about them on ESPN/ESPN2/NFL Network, etc....they are never the topic...and as far as recapping scores, they go in depth with almost every game, except the steelers games

and I think it's funny that Sapp talks our D up, then calls them old and slow when they lose to the ravens, then is all over their nuts again after the seahawks game...I can't stand that douche

Why is he even worried about it for? Damn Wood, dont be bitching bout the tv, do your thing on the field thats all that matters.

Maybe if we had a better record than the Bills, Ravens, Pats, Chargers, Lions, Packers, etc. then we would be on alot more. In the offseason I see more Steelers specials than any other team....easily.

They are always going to cover the darlings more no matter how good the steelers are. We aren't glamorous or flashy enough for the media, and we don't light up the scoreboards with huge fantasy numbers like other teams (Yet, anyways) so we'll never get the coverage the darlings is foxboro, fagachusetts get.......
