    I'm of this mindset as well, if the player had issue with Woodley he should have addressed in the locker room face-to-face, not in the press as an anonymous source. This will accomplish nothing except having every player wondering who isn't really on board as being a teammate.

    I don't see any scenario where something positive comes of this. Woodley isn't happy, other players are wondering who the snitch is and the Steeler management probably want to know as well.

    Who cares who said it.
    The good thing is that it was said.
    Maybe it'll embarrass him enough that he comes into camp in tiptop shape

    Here is my question to all of this. Forget who said what, the fact remains Woodley wasn't playing up to snuff we seen it and I'm sure the coaches seen it. So why didn't they bench him like when they put Mendy in the dog house?

    Whats the matter, no confidence in Worlids? I don't want to hear about he makes 65 mill so he has to start, no, playing like your invisible is hurting the team and the coaches should had enough balls to bench his arse.
    This is on the coaches too, they benched Mendy, and the other backs as well for underperforming and fumbling the ball, I think they even let someone else start when Brown was making too many mistakes so why was Woodley given a pass?

    Someone mentioned Clark was the player that mentioned it, I don't know but he was the first player that came to my mind when I thought about it. I don't care who said it, I'm more mad at coaches ONLY putting certain players in the dog house.

    Ha, ha ! You may having something there. Then again, Clark doesn't seem to back off his comment so maybe not. I never cared for when the source is not mentioned with their words. If you have the report saying, " the team loves the guy " that's one thing but to place a bullseye on the guys back and for him not to see who is pulling the trigger, that's just not right.

    Anyway, I'm still glad it was said and hopefully Woodley will show up one of these seasons.

    Or perhaps it's a reporter trying to sell a story..
    Instead of worrying about a fellow player "betraying" him perhaps he should take the comments to heart and do something about it. He has been plain awful after he got his big contract.
    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!

    I agree.... and who knows, the player may have also said it to his face. Its not like the player is dropping an atom bomb... its no secret Woodley looked out of shape this year.

    I don't like this nonsense with anonymous players sniping at each other in the news. I'd rather not see the Steelers turn into the Jets of a few years ago.

    That said, I do hope that the coaching staff has talked to Woodley and that he comes back next year in shape. With the size of his contract, he has to perform. Cutting him will lead to a huge cap hit, and the only real scenario that ends well for the Steelers is Woodley performing well.
