If 1 of them is 100%, I'd say we're a SuperBowl contender.

We he gets matched up individually with an OT or a TE, he needs to win.
On the offensive side, I think the tackles are key because they are the ones primarily responsible for keeping Ben upright. If Ben is upright, I always like the Steelers chances.
All we know how good Woodley is able to play. Therefore we get angry when he does not fulfill.

He is past his prime health-wise, and we can only hope he can play a majority of games this year.
