[QUOTE=NJ-STEELER;549407]just want to point out that woodley had 8 or 9 sacks in the first nine games 2 years ago before he got hurt.
right after he got that big contract, so i'm not sure where this 'he's been awful since getting his money' is coming from[/QUOTE]If you remember that, then you should remember the first 3 games of that season he had maybe 1 sack then Tomlin called him out. Then he went on a Sack tear the next couple of games.
It shouldn't take that if you are one of the highest paid on the team.
My correction, it was 4 games in and he was called out. At that point he only had 1.5 sacks through the first 4 games.
When you get the big bucks best believe other players on the team who could be cap casulties are pretty PO'ed at Woodley.
Does it really take that much effort or attention to tell a reporter what we already know? Its not like players were missing practice or calling in sick so they could research Woodleys BMI and calorie intake.
I doubt this player called up the reporter to tell them about Woodleys fatness...
Here's a forum discussing Woodley half ass effort that season after getting paid.
Perhaps only Pap is understanding what Chadman is saying.
No problem with a teammate airing a grievance with Woodley if they have one. But don't go to the media,m and anonymously snipe at a player. It does NOTHING for team cohesion- and with so many faces about to leave the room, you can bet your a$$ they need team cohesion next season.
If this 'source' has gone to Woodley themselves- why wouldn't he be named in the article? The cat would already be out of the bag.
This IS gutless. It could be the 4th string OLB P.O'ed he can't get in front of Woodley on the pecking order, trying to smear the guy in front of him.
The comparison earlier with when James Harrison called out Mendenhall & Ben is the PERFECT eample of how it's done. You got a problem? Fine- but let the guy know who it is that bitching behind your back.
This chicken poop accusation is typical of the lack of leadership this team suffered through last season.
And for the record- this is the perfect opportunity for Tomlin & Co to get the team chemistry sorted. Find the gutless source, call him out, and cut him.
This sets the tone for the team, no rats on board thank you.
who cares who it was. im glad someone on the team made it public. maybe that teammate was tired of woodley letting the team down by not being in shape and faking injury.

tomlin is the most gutless of all
Amazing how so many want to make the person who called out Woodley the villain and the non-performing, out of shape Woodley some kind of victim. Woodley is the one letting the team down. Great someone called him on it. I could care less who it is. If it upsets Woodley get his butt into training and into shape and do something about it on the field.
