    The question is, why is he not exceptional now? Is he doing something different on his own? Or, is he not being used in the same manner as when he excelled?
    Timmons hasn't really excelled at anything since he's been a full time starter. He was a very good situational player when he split time w/ Foote.

    Jason Worilds reminds me a lot of....... Lawrence Timmons. Maybe the Steelers will move Worilds to ILB so that way he can take years to develop (like Timmons) and that will allow us to forget that he was a bust (like Timmons).

    In Worilds defense, at least he has shown some blitzing skills.

    Got to stay on message. It produces results. Notice the increase in the number of posters questioning our defense and the increased number talking about the 4-3. Even if it is begruding, give credit where it is due

    We are now really starting to have discussions about our defense and the future of it versus blindly accepting that the status quo will be here forever.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Your message has nothing to do with it, though...

    Questions always come after poor defensive performances...

    Not that you shouldn't feel free to wish and hope for a 4-3 alignment...nor should you stop advocating for it on the board...

    This topic is just the beneficiary of the suckage of the Steelers' D...

    Don't be such a "Debbie Downer" so close to the weekend. It's all about ME!!!

    BTW that last part is my Mike Wallace imitation!!!

    Rest assured I will continue to be a 4-3 advocate. You can't have a Steel Curtain with a 3 man DL because that is nothing more than an aluminum mini-blind!!!!!!!

    I don't know about that. I thought Timmons was an animal in 2010 and was going nowhere but up. Instead he has deflated like a week old birthday balloon.

    And, the question is, why?

    Is it something he did (or is doing)? Or, is it something that he is being coached to do/schemed not to do?

    My vote is the latter.

    I dunno. To me, looks like he has INFLATED...and maybe that's part of the problem. He's bulked up, but perhaps that's slowed him down enough to dampen his effectiveness.
