    LaMarr Woodley promises Steelers won’t be 0-2

    LaMarr Woodley promises Steelers won’t be 0-2
    Posted by Michael David Smith on September 13, 2012, 11:50 AM EDT

    Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley doesn’t even want to hear anyone suggest that his team could be 0-2 after Sunday’s game.

    When a reporter prefaced a question to Woodley by noting that the Steelers are a loss away from their first 0-2 start in a decade, Woodley quickly cut her off.

    “And we won’t be 0-2” Woodley said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Every week the mindset is to go out there and win a football game, and not start the season off bad. So far we’re 0-1, and we’ll manage to not go 0-2.”

    The Steelers are favored to beat the Jets on Sunday, but given the way the Jets played in their own Week One game, it certainly wouldn’t be a shock if Woodley’s prediction fails to come true. But one positive sign for the Steelers is that the last time they started 0-2, in 2002, they still made the playoffs.

    I understand the spirit of Woodley's comments, but I'd rather the Steelers let their performance do the talking.

    Somewhere down the line the Steelers will go 0-2. Let's just hope it's not this week. Losing to two AFC opponents this early would be very problematic.

    great minds obviously think alike, because that was my first thought also.

    and Woodley can be the first one to do so, he was pretty invisible against Denver.

    Very invisible. Maybe he had a facebook link inside his helmet and was on that the whole time?

    And it's times like these when I wish we had the personality of a Cowher on the sideline when this team is once again struggling to find an identity.

    I'm curious as to why you would think that a personality like Cowher's would help that at all?

    Oh my. Just look back to any season he coached (except 2006 in which he mailed it in). Cowher was a master motivator, preparer, and sideline general. Let's see how Tomlin has this team ready on Sunday! I am hoping he will.

    Please don't say that. The Oakland loss from a few years back is still fresh in my mind.
