It's time to tell the truth about some of your heroes.
LB LaMarr Woodley is a BUM. A bust. A has-been at 28. Zero sacks last night. Zero takeaways. Woodley is no better than he was last year.
Woodley is a fat-ass, candy-ass, jive-ass, dumb-ass, lame-ass. He's another Steeler who loves the life more than he loves football.
LB Jason Worilds made ZERO tackles. ZERO. Thank God the Steelers drafted Worilds ahead of Sean Lee in 2010.
How do you play as much as Worilds did last night and not make a single f'ing tackle? Just stand in one place. Eventually, maybe somebody will run into you.
Did you hear Coach Mike Tomlin after the game? He didn't know what to say. He doesn't know what to do. He's looking like a slack-jawed amateur.
QB Ben Roethlisberger was no better. He said the receivers had the lights in their eyes and he referred to himself in the third person.
From the locker room, it was the usual drivel: "Put on our hard hats, get back in the lab, blah, blah, blah…"
Except this time we know there is no answer. There is no solution.
C Maurkice Pouncey and LB Larry Foote got injured. That provides an excuse. TE Heath Miller and RB Le'Veon Bell haven't played yet. More excuses.
But injuries to key players are part of football. You need a Plan B. The Steelers clearly have no Plan B. That's because they have no depth. That's because they have assembled a flawed roster.
When you keep saying "next man up" like it’s your mantra, the "next man up" had better be NFL quality. With the Steelers, too many are not.
