Have Woodley and Harrison passed their prime. 


Don't they only have like five sacks total? I don't remember them putting much heat on Flacco Sunday night.

Except on the 3rd & 2 with 2:00 left. In a play that Flacco should have either taken a knee or hand the ball off to Ray Rice to try to get a 1st down (which I was hoping for) that would have effectively ended the game.

They knew they had the Steelers by the balls.  If the easy pass was open then they make the pass.  If not then they keep the clock running.  It was well thought out and worked.

I've never been impressed by either. Lawrence Timmons is the future of that D.

Harrison for sure. Age and Injuries creeping up. I wouldn't say Woodley is done.

Woodley is merely entering his prime, don't let his early success be associated with high miles.

Harrison is still an all-pro, mobility is slightly hindered due to wear.

Timmons could be better than both if he gets a lil bigger

Harrison may be on his way out.  Just doesn't seem to have the same power and leverage since the injury.  Then again, maybe like Suggs, he just needs proper time to recover.  Both are the type of guys who would do anything to get back on the field even if they weren't 100%.

Woodley is just out of shape, but I wouldn't say his skills are lost, just needs to drop some weight.

woodley is still a good player, maybe harrison is still a little injured...but they are both players that can change a game in one snap.

People need to realize that Harrison is an older player who, remarkably like Barry Bonds, got better later into his career, is starting to break down.  He's just not built like most DE's, 6'0, 240lb, and relied on sheer athletisicm to get him through.  Injuries have hindered him and so he's not as explosive as he's been in years past.

Woodley has a larger frame however I don't think he's in the best shape and without Harrison pulling some of the attention his way is having trouble beating his guy.

Age and injuries have removed the burst Harrison once had. He's still a great run stopper though. Woodley has talent, but was never as consistent as Harrison.

If signing him would make them Super Bowl contenders, wouldn't he have 10 teams lined up to give up $10 million a year offers?? eek1

1) They are older

2) Oher and KO are improvements

3) In this recent game, we didn't give them much opportunity (very committed to the run), and when they did rush, they did get home to Flacco (sometimes because of good coverage, sometimes indecision / conservative play from Flacco)

IMO, Harrison is on the downside of his career.  Age and injuries are catching up to him.  Not so with Woodley, who has many seasons ahead of him, unless there is a serious injury.
