Most definitely...stepped up huge today. Didn't really see much of Harrison though.

Harrison was hurt and probably should not have been on the field but manned up and played.

I got to give Woodley props, I spent the whole season ripping into this guy calling him Lamar Haggans...but he's back! Finally in playing shape!

Wood has played good all year imo

I think a lot of players have, when you remove two all stars out of the lineup you have to have others compensate for the loss...it's just to hard to evaluate people that way. I'm just glad the results are showing now!

Thank you NorthCoast.
I'm frankly amazed at the amount of negative views of Harrison this season. Let's make the point: he won't have a season like that magical one he had last year--that was truly a career year. So judging him to that standard is a mistake. You judge him by what he is regularly capable of... and judge him by what is expected in this defense (historically what ROLB has done) and I'm sure his numbers this year are very favorable.

And... he didn't have a bad game at all today either.

He erased Mendy's fumble by forcing one of his own. And didn't he have a sack eliminated due to a penalty?

Do I remember he leads the Steelers in sacks (at least before this game)?

The silver lining to Aaron getting hurt? Ziggy getting playing time & contributing.
The silver lining to Harrison getting double-teamed? Woodley making teams pay.

Here's my question...is Woodley good enough to put on the other side?

It was nice to see Hood just go down after that INT instead of fighting for the extra 1/2 yard like lots of numbskulls do and risk a fumble. Nice to see players out there THINKING for a change.

You mean like Nick Eason calling for, and then advancing the short kickoff....LMAO!! I didn't realize he called the fair catch, but I was screaming for him to just go down!! He made me quite nervous with that.

Loved the inside spin move by Woodley on one of his sacks, he looked like Dwight Freeney! I, probably like a lot of other people, think that if Woodley develops another move to go with his bull rush, he could be unstoppable.

Imagine how awesome Woodley would be every game if he could play like Feeney does as a 4-3 DE who can just pin his ears back and go after the QB every pass play and not worry about being out in pass coverage chasing RBs and TEs.

Well, at least on the "higher stakes" play someone was thinking. I can't tell you how many times I've seen linemen make an INT, then fight for every inch and end up fumbling it back.

Even when Woodley wasn't getting sacks, he was nothing like Haggans. Haggans was all speed rush and ran himself out of position to defend the run. Woodley is a pocket collapser and shrinks the running lanes by taking a more direct route to the QB.

Because he CAN ... Haggans didn't have the physical strength to do what Woodley does. Woodley is definitely a significant upgrade.
