    Timmons has made a lot of tackles over the years...

    Its like asking how many times has JH done this to a WR?

    People here complaining about Timmons are literally picking the fly $hit out of the pepper. The guy has been the Steelers most consistent defensive player for years. He rarely screws up on the field, is a super hard worker in practice (according to coaches and teammates), and is never involved in off-field issues.

    Complaining about him is agenda driven BS.

    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!

Unfortunately, even had he not bit, Pryor cut it up the middle so quickly that Woodley might still be standing there in position, daring Pryor not to bring it outside.
    You might know that I've been harder on Woodley than almost anyone the past few seasons...but according to this article, Woodley was just doing his job on that particular play:


    October 30, 2013 by Mark Kaboly

    Things aren’t always as they appear, and Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley has to be thrilled about that.

    On Terrelle Pryor’s record-breaking 93-yard touchdown run on the first play of last week’s 21-18 loss to Oakland, it sure appeared that Woodley was one of the main, if not the main, culprit.

    Turns out he wasn’t. In fact, he was just doing his job.

    How the defense was called, Woodley’s responsibility on that particular play was to attack the running back regardless if he actually had the ball or not – a very common practice when defending the read option (Jason Worilds did the same thing in the second half).

    Woodley acknowledged such during Wednesday’s open locker room.

    “My responsibility on that play was to go down and take the running back,” Woodley said. “My focus on that play wasn’t even to look at the quarterback.”

    If it wasn’t Woodley’s fault, then whose fault was it?

    Well, Woodley wouldn’t say anything specific except “everybody has a responsibility.”

    The blame lies with a handful of players – Troy Polamalu not getting off his block, even though he had outside contain, and Ryan Clark for biting so badly on the pulling right guard. But the main responsibility for the quarterback was linebacker Lawrence Timmons.

    Timmons (as seen in the photo) jumped the run-action and is taken out of the play when he gets caught up in the scrum at the line of scrimmage and eventually falls to the ground.

    “It was just a mistake and those things happen in games,” Woodley said. “It ended up happening and it cost us.”

    Good on him for owning up to his mistake...he rarely makes those kinds of errors.

    You're exactly right. To focus on this team's single most stable defensive player for making one of his rare mistakes is crazy to me. It just screams of an agenda. Sure he may not be everyone's favorite player, but it's really difficult to look at this defense objectively and not realize Timmons is their most consistently good player. Plus, the guy's only missed 2 games in his entire 7-year career! 2 games! That's nuts!

    For that matter, when was the last time you remember a "Wow" play from James Farrior? I personally can't remember anything that sticks out in particular in my memory, and Potsie was a great ILB for us for many years.

    One time he ripped through the oline and speared carson palmer, who then laid motionless for a few minutes

    How about a 'wow' year like in 2004 where he was arguably deserving of the NFL's DPOY.
