    Why doesn't Timmons get more love?

    http://triblive.com/sports/steelers/...#axzz387ENYOyP

    Every time I watch the Steelers, I always come away feeling like Timmons is everything we could ever have hoped for. He is so steady. solid like a rock, rarely misses a tackle (can't say the same about Troy), has never got in any trouble off the field, always has the right attitude and says the right things...and yet, it doesn't seem like Steeler fan appreciates him. I don't know if I ever saw anyone wearing his jersey (not that that is the end all indicator for love, but it is somewhat of an indication of love). I just don't know why the fans don't appreciate the guy. What is missing?

    Because he's not a white LB from Penn State who is a local boy that everyone wanted to see on the Steelers. Plus since he was the very first #1 pick by Tomlin, he automatically becomes the whipping boy for all those who hate Tomlin and always will.
    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 think he gets compared to other top 20 linebackers like Patrick Willis. The race card is about the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I also think that he's surrounded by guys that are more exciting. Deebo. Troy. They're highlight reel guys. Steady is "boring" when you're watching ESPN. He's the Jack Ham to Deebo's Jack Lambert.

    This is probably the most accurate observation...

    Because he isn't loud and he doesn't go out of his way to attract attention to himself (other than being a rock in the defense), he goes unnoticed while others seek out the attention...

    Plus, he is just not that good. He is a solid, starting NFL LB. But (and someone evoked the name), he's not Patrick Willis. He doesn't make plays. He does his job "pretty well" most of the time. But he doesn't make sacks, doesn't force fumbles or make plays behind the LoS. He doesn't pick the ball more than any other LB, and his tackles aren't any more forceful either.

    He is appreciated just right, for his playing ability.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.

    Not saying it isn't true. Just saying that it's absolutely retarded.

    On that we agree. All the players are "black and gold" as far as I'm concerned. Coaches too!

    If he was more of a vocal veteran leader he'd get a lot more love I'm sure.
