Raiders lose LaMarr Woodley for the year - http://t.co/DptePxnLlD pic.twitter.com/KcFmwGGIGq
— NFL Draft Diamonds (@DraftDiamonds) October 23, 2014
To put it mildly, critiquing Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert’s decision making is in vogue now within Steelers Nation. And, truth be told, some of the personnel decisions the two men have made are open to question (Who exactly decided to trade up to get Alameda Ta’Amu, for example?)
- But when it comes to LaMarr Woodely, Colbert and Tomlin called this one spot on.
- As Tony Defeo of Behind the Steel Curtain has pointed out, at the time it looked like an incredibly wise decision.
- But that’s when Woodley suffered his first soft tissue injury.
- But it was clearly the correct move.
Time to Take Our Own Medicine
Regular readers are familiar with Steel Curtain Rising’s Watch Tower, which analyzes the job done by those who cover the Steelers. The chief focus on the Watch Tower is to seek to understand what makes the press tick – what gets covered (or not covered) by who and why. But, truth be told, the Watch Tower does like to play a little bit of “gottacha” now and then, pointing out when journalists get things wrong.
- Well, Steel Curtain Rising got this one wrong, and in a big way.
The Curtain’s call is that the Steelers stick with Woodley for one more year, but the Steelers themselves seem inclined to take the cap hit move on.It’s time for the Watch Tower to take its own medicine -- there’s a reason why Colbert and Tomlin get paid to do what they do and this is just a non-commercial fan site. They were right on Woodley, I was wrong.
