I truly believe that if it weren't for Clark Haggans being a veteran, Woodley would have
been the starter at some point last year regardless of any injury he may have had.
But looking forward, I am very excited about these two coming off the edge.
This could be verry scary for the opponents. Agree?

Very excited. Now if Troy returns to safety and leaves the LB position to others, I'll be really pumped!

I'm with 'ya Msm, and I definitely agree. It could potentially be a very dangerous tandem... Then toss in Timmons (I think he'll beat out Foote for the starting role), and you have a stellar group poised to inflict large amounts of P-A-I-N!... :twisted:

I don't know any fan that isn't excited about the dynamic duo.

The correct answer was, "No. I hope that helps." :D

Im excited about our whole LB core. But with woodley,harrison and possibly timmons starting i think it sets the stage for Farrior having a huge season.

You know Woodley hasn't proved anything, but you just get the feeling from the little
you see of him that he is indeed the real deal. With a better pass rush, that will help everything on defense. I'm jacked.

I think Woodley's coming out party will be in 09 season.

That Jax playoff game was hopefully a preview of things to come in 2008 and beyond. He was dominant when on the field last January.

I'm sticking with my prediction of 8 sacks for Woodley. He's an every down player now and will have to face the run as well as the pass. Plus I'm sure he'll make mistakes just as all players do.

Guess that means #43 gets more time to play safety as well.
Our young, strong LB's are going to be ferocious this year Dutch!

That is why I think his coming out party might be in 09. If he does not turn out to be as good as some expect in 08 the bashing will start.

I don't know about Timmons. I hope. But I just don't know. Taking wait and see
approach with him. Troy will be awesome this year. He is a dynamic player who just had
an off year with the injuries. I got faith in Troy!

Nah, Don't think we will see much bashing of Woodley. You can see he his a player.
Timmons on the other hand did nothing on special teams. A player who is supposed to be a side line to side line player should be making tackles on special teams at the very least. But he was unnoticeable. There is a reason to be alarmed. Doesn't mean we give up on him .But a little concern is the proper play here I believe.

Not only am I geeked about our starting linebackers, but I'm also excited to see what Bruce Davis brings to the table. If he flashes anything close to what the Wood did last year, then he's going to be able to keep both starters fresh throughout the game...that could be huge for our pass rush.

Have to agree as well, I feel he will be a beast.
Bashing will start when he does not a five sack minimum against the Texans.

Yea, but what does this have to do with Ben being great and Willie Parker being the 40th best back in the NFL? :stirpot :P

i am just as excited to see woodley and harrison opposite each other as i am seeing mendenhall and sweed being added to an already very good offense. i think they can be the best outside lb's the steelers have had since lloyd and greene. if troy has a big rebound year (which i think he will) they will have an amazing defense. hopefully timmons proves himself worthy of his pick in the next season or two. then all they need to do is add a few young d-lineman and they will have a sb caliber defense

well lets see we've had two good qb's in 30 years but we've had a dominate run game and a great defense for most of those years. if we didn't have KS or NOD or BB or MM or any of those other bums stinking up the field we'd probably be working on #8 by now.

i haven't seen anyone bash the qb since ben took over. nope. it's been pretty consistent bashing of parker and whichever 1st round pick we've just taken (burress, timmons, simmons etc)
we should have been bashing rod woodson, carnell lake, and greg lloyd all those years!
