    Clark: Woodley comments show Steelers 'fracture'



    • By Gregg Rosenthal

    The league's least valuable player -- anonymous teammate -- emerged from hiding this weekend to rip on Steelers linebacker Lamarr Woodley.
    "He was awful," the teammate said of Woodley to the Post-Gazette. "He tells us he works out, but we didn't see it. He wasn't in shape. That has to be a reason why he was always hurt."
    Woodley isn't going anywhere. He's one of the core pieces to the Steelers defense and they may need him more than ever with James Harrison a potential salary cap casualty this offseason. Safety Ryan Clark, speaking on NFL A-M, wishes the anonymous teammate kept his comments private.
    "My biggest problem with that is not LaMarr, or is not someone's feelings about LaMarr," Clark said. "My problem is now its public. We were talking about the Ravens earlier, we were talking about the brotherhood, we were talking about the family that they were. We all have arguments with our brothers, sisters, cousins, but that stays in house. What you talk about then stays there and it doesn’t get out to the public. So that is the problem. ...
    "That shows that this team that is normally close, you had the Joey Porters, the Alan Fanecas, just down the line, leader after leader, this team was close-knit. It shows there is a fracture in that. I think that is the most disappointing thing about that coming out."
    Clark went on to emphasize that Woodley is already training in Arizona this offseason. Perhaps Woodley knows that he didn't do enough last year to live up to his contract.

    There you go.

The lack of loyalty manifests itself on the field on Sundays, the same way Woodley being out of shape results in poor performance.

    Yes. Lord forbid a professional football hero is put in a bad light in public because of "insider information." If it is true, then Woodley was a direct contributor to us missing the play offs and he should be held accountable to the organization, his teammates and the fans. Let each of them choose how they view this. Don't agree that this is "Top Secret" and only those with a clearance should know. Just watching the games I think most already suspected this. It has just now been confirmed.

    How exactly does "the lack of loyalty manifests itself on the field on Sundays?" I'm think that is not true at all. What manifests itself on the field on Sundays is players who are not conditioned and can't play to the fullest of their God given abilities.

    It's not a direct reflection of the leadership on the team. Some people are going to express their opinions, come into camp out of shape, not give 100%, ect. if the leadership is great, good, or bad. Grown individuals know the repercussions of their actions. Grown individuals can't be controlled and are going to do what they want. I wish people would stop blaming others for grown individual's actions. The individual is at fault, not the owners, GM, coaches, or teammates.

    uhh... Hines Ward ran his mouth like crazy...
    Ben loves to go against the coaches and release injuries we never knew about...
    Harrison called out Ben in a magazine...

    this is the typical Steeler "drama" in a quiet off-season after a bad year.

    I'll take this over rape accusations, DUI's and other criminal mischief any day of the week. Woodleys fat and lazy. OMG!!! We are unraveling.
