Thread: Timmons "Haters" Still Out There?

    As Mike Mayock would say, when he sees it, he one of the best linebackers in the business. Sometimes he is late out of his stance and he doesn't always fill running lanes as he should, but other than that, he is a pretty amazing linebacker. Look, almost every great linebacker has a hole or two in his game (only freaks like Patrick Willis are the rare exception). I'm very happy with Timmons and glad we signed him to an extension. In time, the Timmons pick may go down as the best pick of the Tomlin era. I believe he is still improving. Having more effective pass rushers and run stuffers around him will only make him better.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Whatever your opinion on Timmons prior to this season, there is absolutely nothing to hate regarding his performance this season...

    Timmons has clearly stepped his game up, but like some said: Labeau has an awful lot to do with how many plays he makes week to week.

    he's played well lately and he's even beating his blocker when rushing the QB now, something we haven't seen up until this year.

    but as far as bashing harrison. sucks to get old and comeback after an injury.
    if timmons has half the career deebo has had as a steeler, i dont think anyone will be disappointed

    I'm still here. I think Hood is a waste too.

    What would you like Hood to do? He is in a 3-4 not a 4-3. I think some guys want 3-4 lineman to play like 4-3 lineman. Totally different

    Just to do what Arron Smith used to do. Confront the O-line, allow the linebackers their opps and stop the run. So I guess I want him to do what he is paid todo.

    Thats what he does. Name three impact plays in Aaron Smith's career. Its hard to do. He was the consumate pro and a good Dlineman. But in our scheme the Ends are as inconspicuous as a black ant on a black rock at midnight.

    I wish we didn't notice Hood so much
