Alright, I'm back and ready to rock now that training camp is under way. I'm pumped for football season to start. I can't wait to see how this offense does and how the new guys on D manage.

All I gotta say is

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Anyways, is anybody going to training camp this year, and if so, please give us all the juicy details. I don't have NFL network anymore so I don't get the all access info that I used to.

I really like the article that Dale Lolley just put up on his blog about Lamarr Woodley.

Eh.

Last Year I heard our defense lost it's emotion and Swagger. Smith is basically the Joey Porter of FS's and he almost guarantee's 2 wins against the bengals every year.

No reason to cut him.

Though.. Until he proves he can beat out Ryan Clark...

FS: Ryan Clark -> Ryan Mundy
SS: Troy P. -> Anthony Smith
3rd S: AnSmith.

I agree; I keep hearing good things about Mundy, and he's a hometown kid!

Smith got a bunch of **** for the "Guarantee"

Rewatch the play, Ike Taylor quit covering Moss. Smith was playing a short zone. He then read the play. Almost broke it up too.

Smith got a lot of undo **** last year.

Which irritates me. His performance (Supposedly) Dropped about the same time Clark Haggans disappeared, Aaron Smith Got Injured, etc.

Smith was just the scapegoat. Like Ike taylor was in 06.


Joey Porter couldn't play 3-4 OLB. Joey Porter could play 4-3 SLB. Joey Porter couldn't rush the passer. Joey Porter COULD talk **** and blitz, coming unscathed.

Double Standards

It wasn't even a guarantee in my opinion, at which I assume you were hinting. I don't fault him at that. We obviously all know his passion for the game is unquestionable.

To claim Porter couldn't rush the passer is questionable at best. He averaged over 8 sacks per season while with the Steelers this decade, as the starting LB every one of those years.

Smith is talking trash when he was thrown into the lineup due to injuries, as if he had earned that spot. He made some noise with his mouth, failed to produce adequately on the field, and is now back to being a backup.

I am completely fine with keeping Smith to backup Polamalu. However, Clark's health issues still linger, and it would be wise to upgrade at the FS position.

Unless of course Ryan Mundy turns out to be a 6th round steal.

Anthony Smith was also thrust into the limelight as a second year player.

Didn't Porter have 3-4 Years before he was a starter?

That photo of Harrison almost made me piss my pants in fear. He is just flat out scary.

That being said, I think he won't have as good a year this year as he did last from a stats perspective, simply because opposing teams will take him into account in their game plans. Hopefully that frees up other guys to step up, like Woodley.

I think that a 2nd year of starting plus the addition of Woodley will only help Harrison this year. Haggans didn't provide much pressure last year, teams will be forced to respect Woodley once he displays his ability and Harrison will get better match-ups.
