    I was a hood supporter but now, I"ve got my doubts about him BIG TIME! That's why I"m all for addressing DL and LB (not necessarily in that order) with the first two picks.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    We are going to lose Wallace and Lewis because we overspent to keep guys like Woodley, who based on nothing more than timing (already locked into long term deals with older defense), should have been let go.

    50 million for an oft injured, out of shape, 8-10 sack, one dimensional pass rusher is a horrid contract...
    This!

    In some other article, I read that it may be the case that Woodley works out for 1.5 hours a day (or so); at the moment, I don't recall where I saw that. Let me say this: I am a BIG Woodley fan, but I don't think that is enough volume. One and a half hours of work is very definitely not enough in today's game.

    I do understand that injuries can befall anyone; like all of you Steeler Addicts, I am so hopeful that our guys don't have to sustain significant injuries this season. This might be our year if we can stay healthy! Go Black & Gold and go Lamarr!!!

    If Woodley would spend the same amount of time keeping in shape and preparing for games as he does on facebook and twitter, he might be worth his paycheck.

    This seems to be a problem with a lot of players, they get their payday and become fat and happy. I personally wouldn't handout a contract without performance clauses ,owners have to find ways to keep their players hungry.

    We've already spent way too many high picks on the line. Aaron Smith was a 4th and Keisel was a 7th. The reason we're in a down period is because for the last 4 years, we spent 6 of our 8 top picks on the line (including all four #1s), instead of on the skill positions we are struggling with now.

    No more high line picks.

    Yeah let's add more defense so they can sit for 3 years "learning" the system then complain when the offense doesn't average 30 points a game.

    No, I said if he spent as much time studying and preparing for games as he does playing online he might be worth the money they pay him.
