Steelers Six From Around The Web – Friday June 10th – Woodley Lays Down The Smack Edition
Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley was a busy man yesterday and did a great job on NFL Total Access and you can watch most of the video clips here. Woodley says he did not vote in the Top 100 Players of 2011 the NFL Network is running and told fans during a live chat yesterday that he thinks he should have been rated better than 82 and that the Steelers were underrepresented on the list in addition.
Woodley laid down the smack hard on the Bengals and the Ravens as he was asked about the Bengals outlook without Carson Palmer and the Ravens chances of going to a Super Bowl with Joe Flacco at quarterback while on the show.
CBSSports.com Senior Writer Pete Prisco thinks Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is overrated because he isn\’t great in coverage. Prisco is off his rocker for sure here and I don\’t know where to start with this.
Ed Bouchette wonders if Mike Tomlin will try to find a spot on his coaching staff for soon to be former West Virginia head coach Bill Stewart. Stewart gave Tomlin his fiirst coaching job back in 1985 and Stewart will soon be bought out of his contract at WV any day now.
Steelers backup quarterback Charlie Batch had many of his debts incurred before his December bankruptcy filing discharged in bankruptcy court this week. That means creditors can\’t come after Batch for the money owed them and also means he gets to keep most of his assets, including his house and his Super Bowl rings.
Actor Ed O\’Neill, best known for his character Al Bundy on “Married… With Children“, had a brief role as a defensive end for the Steelers in 1969 and recently told that story as the cast from his show “Modern Family” were on “Inside the Actor’s Studio” answering questions from James Lipton. Ed tells the story at the 2:56 mark in the video below.
