    LaMarr Woodley Complains About Lack of Steelers Highlights on NFL Network

    http://larrybrownsports.com/football...-network/93724

    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 .
