Congrats to Woodley. I don't want to get too high on him too soon, but it looks like he's going to have a great career ahead of him.

Steelers Rule

I believe he was AFC offensive player of the week, but even I would have voted for Burner Turner for the league-wide award after going for 220 yards and 2 TD's on 22 carries (and that is with the D keying on the run because the Falcons had a rookie QB making his first start).
