View Full Version : Stop trying to defend Woodley

He has been pathetic. Period. End of discussion.


Whatís my point, you ask? LaMarr Woodley is my point.

Woodley has been one of the most dominant pass rushers over the past three seasons (35 sacks) along with being just as stout of a run stuffer.

Dick LeBeau once told me the reason why the Steelers are so difficult to run against is because itís very difficult to move Woodley out of the way in order to do so.

Thatís what makes what happened on Sunday against Houston so disturbing.

Woodley was once again a non-factor on defense, and it wasnít because he was dropping into coverage, was getting double teamed, or facing an All-Pro tackle.

Woodley was relegated a non-factor by the likes of Ö wait for it Ö TIGHT ENDS!!!

Out of the 54 defensive snaps Woodley participated in Sunday, 25 times he was blocked by a tight end one-on-one Ė and got his butt whipped each and every time.

Either Owen Daniels or Joel Dreesen locked onto Woodley and drove him out of the play time and time again, and as illustrated earlier, that should NEVER happen to a stud like Woodley.

Houston was so comfortable allowing either Daniel or Dreesen to take Woodley out of the play, the last six series of the game, he was blocked by tackle Eric Winston only twice.

Hereís the breakdown of what Woodley did:

25 times blocked by a tight end.
12 times by an offensive lineman.
8 times he dropped into coverage.
8 times he went unblocked.
1 time he was double-teamed.

If we ever do move to a 4-3 ..... and after the way this year is unfolding along with the age of our KEY 3-4 components and the way we have drafted over the past few years it may actually come to fruition....I wonder how Wood would perform as a pass rushing DE in the 4-3.

I guess you (er Kaboly) told us. Now, all of the us Woodley apologists don't have a leg to stand on. Wait, I don't remember any Woodley defenders. Who are you arguing with?

I respect Dee Dub's opinion, but he has argued its how the scheme is being used and not Woodley himself. Its simply not because we aren't sending him after the QB as this article illustrates. I know the vast majority of fans agree, but some are still defending.

I will say that Woodley is earning his money. He's showing up for work every day, so, he's earning his money. The Steelers chose to pay him large sums of money. That being said, he is playing poorly and doesn't appear to be worth the money the Steelers spent; but he's "earning" the money, just the same as you and I do every day we go to work.

I do believe the edge of intensity or desire to perform as much after a player gets a big contract shows up in their play or lack of play.

I read a study that, after an employee receives a raise, they give extra effort on an average of two weeks and then they're back to their normal performance. I know it wasn't evaluated with pro football players but, people are all still the same.

I wasn't a fan of resigning Woodley to big money. Back when this was being discussed I always felt like Woodley was all or nothing. He is like Santonio Holmes. He may show up in the playoffs but you will have 5 to 6 games during the season where he is MIA.

Woodley will probably end up with 10 or 11 sacks but they will come in bunches. Quick question though, isn't Woodley on Aaron Smith's side? If so I think that may have something to do with his lack of production. Smith is getting pancaked and its hard to fill a gap when the DE isn't holding his ground or getting penetration.

It would make sense that Smiths decline may in fact be affecting Woodley, especially in the run game. But when he gets a chance to rush the QB he gets blocked by TE's that Harrison runs straight through. And man does Woodley look slow when he is trailing a play. I hope he turns his season around, and fast.

To be honest, I wasn't either or Troy either for that matter. I just trusted our FO on these signings. Woodley looks the part but he just doesn't make enough plays for me. For his contract I would expect him to be a shade below Terrell Suggs. I don't see that kind of relentless instensity from him.

Definitely could be part of the answer. Living in Brownsland I was listening to a radio interview with LB Fujita on the Browns. They asked him why D'Qwell Jackson's play had improved so much this season and he said it was the addition massive DT Phil Taylor in front of him. So yeah, when the line does their job it makes the LB's job easier.

I've always said Woodley would be a better 4-3 DE than a 3-4 OLB. Put him at DE and pin his ears back going after the QB and not worrying about dropping into coverage...he would be great.

He is about Freeney's size, so he isn't too small...

He's make a good "Leo" or "Elephant" DE...a guy who would go after the QB on most plays but have the ability to drop into coverage in a zone blitz...

Here I am. :tt1

I could careless what this article has to say. I counted every pass attempt the Texans made on Sunday. It was 23. Woodley rushed on 11 of those. That mans less than half the time he came after the Qb. Now I am not arguing about whether he is being blocked by TE's or O-lineman. That's never been my argument. I am stating a fact. Woodley and Harrison are being asked to drop into coverage more than they are being asked to rush the QB. A pass rusher, like a RB, needs reps. It's about getting into a rhythm. It is obvious that Woodley's strength is getting after the QB. Same with Harrison. But as I have said over and over and over...LeBeau has changed. He is not bringing the pressure he use to. As a result this team has only 7 sacks (5 in one game), and only 1 turnover. They are not getting pressure on the QB and there is a reason for it.

I will say this, every year LaMarr Woodley has gotten off to a slow start. I am willing to be by seasons end he has over 10 sacks a pick or two and makes about 60 tackles. To me that's pretty good. I'll take it.

Now....does anyone know why LeBeau is doing this?

I'll give you a hint....Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu.

In my mind, Woodley is a below average 3-4 OLB. The stats prove my point. An OLB in a 3-4 defense should always have lots of tackles. Look at James Harrison for example, lots of tackles and qb pressures every season. Woodley has produced nothing this season, low tackle totals and no pressure.

Some posters suggest that Woodley has had no sacks because he's been in coverage most of the time. If this is correct than Woodley should have more tackles but he does not and he never will due to his poor support against the run. He loses contain almost every time and can't get off the blocks, tackles poorly and is clumsy and slow at the point of attack.

Yeah, I'll be that guy. Woodley's play has not been great or even good. But I also believe a lot of this is due to the state of our front seven.

Woodley has had the luxury of playing with a very good D-line and a monster in James Harrison. But look at what has happened this season: our line has been getting gashed left and right. They can't get penetration. James Harrison has been playing without being fully healthy. Obviously if everyone else is getting manhandled so much, Woodley's play is going to drop off as well.

I know that doesn't excuse everything, but I don't believe his career with the Steelers is over. He's been a dominant force for many years. I have a VERY hard time believing that any player is going to suddenly suck within the span of a season for no reason.

Prowler you are usually a better poster and more knowledgable than this. First of all to compare the LOLB to ROLB in a 3-4 and how both should have a lot of tackles is totally ignoring the fact that it is the LOLB who generally has a tackle and a TE lined up to his side.

And Prowler it is also ignoring the fact that the Steeler LOLB in LeBeau's system has generally had less tackles over the years than the ROLB. Here, let me show you...

Kevin Greene 3 years as a Steeler
67 tackles 12.5 sacks
53 tackles 14.00 sacks
34 tackles 9.0 sacks

Jason Gildon first 3 years as a starter
42 tackles 5 sacks
42 tackles 11 sacks
58 tackles 8.5 sacks

Clark Haggans first 3 years as a starter
42 tackles 9 sacks
53 tackles 6 sacks
36 tackles 4 sacks

LaMarr Woodley first 3 years as a starter
41 tackles 11.5 sacks
51 tackles 13.5 sacks
35 tackles 10.0 sacks

LaMarr Woodley compares very favorably to Kevin Greene. You surely dont think Kevin Greene was a bad LOLB in LeBeau's 3-4 do you?

Again, if and when LaMarr Woodley finishes this year with 50-60 tackles and double digit sacks I for one will be very pleased.

I will take it a bit further and say that Joey Porter only topped 65 tackles one time in his career...

Joey also topped 10.5 sacks only once in his career...and that was with the Dolphins...

I'll give you a hint....Ryan Clark and Troy Polamalu.

I recall various points made by both the media and coaches alike since the Patriots game last year and the culmination of the Green Bay Super Bowl victory that those two teams have discovered the blueprint to exploit Lebeau's defense (spread 'em out offense). That in my estimation is a bigger reason.

Now, Polamalu plays a big factor in that as well, since he does not play a typical safety role. But this appears to be about shoring up the pass defense on the level of screens, dump offs, and short passes more than anything else. And in that regard, Woodley does need to do a better job tackling and making plays.

Woodley's lack of contain on the AF TD run was a critical error in the Houston game. It was a lazy, undisciplined play by Woodley, loping up the field until AF cut it back to his side, and he was way out of position.

Take it all the way, Lamarr. Maybe with your millions you can buy a Stressless lounge chair for the sideline and a Segue to use on field.

Agreed that it was a crippling error, but I don't think that it was a lazy play, instead I think it showed a man who is trying to live up to a huge salary. Woodley followed the QB as if he was going to fake the hand off and roll back to his right. Had he done that then he would have turned around and found himself on the ground very quickly. Then Woodley would have jumped up, done his celebration, and everyone would have said "thats the way to earn those millions!".

Unfortunately, he did that in a game in which the D was being destroyed by Foster and the pass D was holding fine. A bad gamble that probably happened because he was more worried about making a huge splash to justify his deal than because money made him lazy.

They both seem to get 50-something or 60-something tackles per year (although Suggs did have one season with 80). They both have 3 seasons with double digit sacks. The main difference is that Suggs had a string of 5 consecutive seasons in the middle of his career in which he did not have double digit sacks, whereas Woodley has had double digit sacks in every season since he has been a starter.

Seems to me that Woodley and Suggs are quite comparable.

Man! I have to laugh at these stat mongers. Stats sure do look good on paper but I just go by what I see on the field.

Suggs can be dominant. When he wants to takeover a game he will takeover that game. He's a beast! And If I had my choice between the two right now, I'm taking Suggs everyday of the week.

In my mind, Woodley is a below average 3-4 OLB. The stats prove my point. An OLB in a 3-4 defense should always have lots of tackles. Look at James Harrison for example, lots of tackles and qb pressures every season. Woodley has produced nothing this season, low tackle totals and no pressure.

Some posters suggest that Woodley has had no sacks because he's been in coverage most of the time. If this is correct than Woodley should have more tackles but he does not and he never will due to his poor support against the run. He loses contain almost every time and can't get off the blocks, tackles poorly and is clumsy and slow at the point of attack.

Prowler you are usually a better poster and more knowledgable than this. First of all to compare the LOLB to ROLB in a 3-4 and how both should have a lot of tackles is totally ignoring the fact that it is the LOLB who generally has a tackle and a TE lined up to his side.

And Prowler it is also ignoring the fact that the Steeler LOLB in LeBeau's system has generally had less tackles over the years than the ROLB. Here, let me show you...

Kevin Greene 3 years as a Steeler
67 tackles 12.5 sacks
53 tackles 14.00 sacks
34 tackles 9.0 sacks

Jason Gildon first 3 years as a starter
42 tackles 5 sacks
42 tackles 11 sacks
58 tackles 8.5 sacks

Clark Haggans first 3 years as a starter
42 tackles 9 sacks
53 tackles 6 sacks
36 tackles 4 sacks

LaMarr Woodley first 3 years as a starter
41 tackles 11.5 sacks
51 tackles 13.5 sacks
35 tackles 10.0 sacks

LaMarr Woodley compares very favorably to Kevin Greene. You surely dont think Kevin Greene was a bad LOLB in LeBeau's 3-4 do you?

Again, if and when LaMarr Woodley finishes this year with 50-60 tackles and double digit sacks I for one will be very pleased.

Good find Dee Dub!! You got me this time. It just goes to show how little I know about football. All the best and god bless you, Dee Dub!!

I have to laugh at people who won't accept facts even when they're shoved in your face. :wink:
