View Full Version : LaMarr Woodley Named AFC Defensive Player of the Month

11-03-2011, 01:03 PM
LaMarr Woodley didn't make it all the way through the Steelers last game against the Patriots, but he did enough during the month of October to earn the AFC Defensive Player of the Month award, according to Scott Brown of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Month after recording 7.5 sacks in October. Woodley became the first player in Steelers history to register multiple sacks in four consecutive games. The fifth-year veteran also had 25 tackles and an interception in helping the Steelers to a 4-1 record in October.

Woodley started off the season somewhat slowly, but he really came on in October to show why he was given that big contract extension with the team earlier this year. Unfortunately, he injured his hamstring in that game against the Patriots and will be out this week against the Baltimore Ravens, at the very least.


Congrats LaMarr :clap:

i heard that when he put beast mode on in early october he never turned it off, which led to him bull rushing and sacking his friends and faimily on monday-saturday

As long as he gets healthy quick from the hamstring there's no reason to think he can't keep this up. There's a lot of football left and he's hitting his stride at a good time.

Clearly in September he wasn't very effective and not living up to the new contract that he signed. Now, a large part of that was due to the inability of the defensive line to get any pressure or maintain their blocks so it's not all on him as we've talked about.

Either way, the dude is beasting right now!

Lots of Love to Wood! :tt02:

Being a Michigan & Steeler fan, Wood is one of my favorite Steelers. He is a dominate force. Once the young guys started playing more on the DL, he unleashed the fury.
