Lamarr Woodley pokes fun at Packers team photo drama

The whole Packers team photo controversy is more than a little silly, but the recent round of back-and-forth between Packers players means the story is going to extend into this week.

Steelers linebacker Lamarr Woodley was the latest to chime in via Twitter.

“I can tell u this much-us @steelers would never be tweeting jabs at each other.. over a team picture issue especially LOL,” Woodley wrote on Saturday.

The story will not have any impact on the game, but the last few days may have told us why the Packers didn’t want guys like linebacker Nick Barnett and tight end Jermichael Finley joining the festivities until later in the week.

  1. While I don’t really disagree with Woodley’s assessment of the situation, a smart man would have shut his (twitter) trap, rather than provide his opponent with an external enemy to focus on and rally around.

  2. So…..he tweets about the other team tweeting….LOL…Am i the only one who sees the irony in this?…..Grown men tweeting is embarrassing enough….it was created for 15 year old girls….

  3. @burnzy32, hope your wrong but I am wondering too.

    Finley and Barnett never where the brightest bulbs in the shed. Barnett better enjoy this one cause he is gone after the season. Finley has yet to play a full season and might need to be around the team more.

  4. If I were Woodley, I’d laugh too! This non-issue is all there is to talk about. Maybe Woodley and the Steelers would like Ol’ NicK on their team next year? Nick Barnett isn’t a bad guy, just not always a smart guy. He’s been licking the edge of trouble since he’s been in Green Bay. He’s always reactionary, thinking about himself first. Twitter in his hand is like giving a sharp object to a toddler; sooner or later they’re gonna get cut. Ultimately, so will Barnett. He can’t stay out of his own way. I’d much rather keep a guy like A.J. Hawk, who is a polar opposite of Nick. When Barnett gets cut, he should realize he did it to himself. He plays for the team of Nick Barnett first, Packers second.

    No tweet or picture is going to ruin the focus of the Packers. The best TEAM will win next Sunday.

  5. The Packers probably won’t want PFT to join the festivities, either, due to the criticism and soap opera on this site over internal Packer team issues.

  6. not a steeler fan here, but i agree with him. Heading into the biggest game of your career, and your teammates are whining over a stupid photo? Clearly the Pack aren’t concerned much with winning.

  7. Too much idle time between Championship games and the Super Bowl. Both teams need to concentrate on the game instead of worrying about what everyone else is doing. It goes for both teams. Prepare for the game like a professional that is getting paid a lot of money to do their job.

  8. The Packers could have squashed this issue by simply calling Bill Belichick or Josh McDaniels. I’m sure they have plenty of photos of the entire Packers organization together.

  9. Lamarr is a beast, with him and Harrison on the edge and Hampton up the middle, good luck Green Bay. Steelers corners wont be slipping on poor field conditions either.

  10. Maybe he should focus more on stopping a passing attack. Last I checked the Steelers Defense lost to the only two decent passing teams they faced (Patriots and Saints).

  11. @begz77

    a can of worms??? Welker ROASTED their head coach, Woodley said “I can tell u this much-us @steelers would never be tweeting jabs at each other.. over a team picture issue especially LOL”

    thats not a personal attack…..thats a general statement that probably 30 other NFL teams agree with, barnett and finley are idiots distracting their teammates when they should be focused on nothing but the steelers…..selfish……..just happy to be there

  12. Skeletaldrawing Says Woodley should have shut his trap, rather than provide the opponent with an external enemy to focus on and rally around.

    Hahahahahaha!!! That’s awesome. The Packers are going to rally around this jest (point) Woodley made? Are you serious? The Packers can’t even rally around each other for a team photo. But hey, whatever makes you packrats feel better, I guess.

    Go Steelers!!!!

  13. I love Packer fans who have been testifying as to how little this photo scandal will effect the out come of the Super Bowl, but think that this “trash talk” is going to be bulletin board material. The game will probably be decided by who has the better day, Woodley and Harrison or Raji and Jenkins, not by the photo controversy or whatever you want to call Woddley’s comment.

    Btw did anyone else notice that awesome karate kick?

    who is Lamarr Woodley?????

    Lamarr is a professional football player, not a hack like some of the folks on the Packers roster. Again pros versus joes.

    who is Lamarr Woodley?????

    =============================

    you’ll know him pretty well after the game next week. He only has 10 sacks in 6 career playoff games.

  16. Luckily this stupid little back and forth popped up a week out, and will be a dead issue well before game time.

    I’m sure Rodgers was echoing the sentiments of more than a few people on the team- especially considering guys like Ryan Grant who HAVE stuck around all season.

    But… he (Rodgers) hopefully gets now that there was nothing whatsoever to gain in bringing this stuff up right now, especially in such a public way.

    All he needed to say was “yep, they’re all part of the team, I’m glad they’ll be with us in Dallas.”

    They’ll “hug it out” on Thursday and that’ll be it, but hopefully they understand better just how big (and desperate for a story) the media microscope is for them right now.

    (and also… Go Pack! 🙂

  17. Barnett knows he is gone for sure after his latest tweet he has been a behind the scenes player with a sense of entitlement . Finley has shown promise thats it he is immature and will likely go the route of Javon Walker please Green Bay don’t send him to the Broncos .

  18. Hey LaMarr I’d much rather have the team photo controversy then have a rapist for a quarterback who shouldn’t even be in the league. I’d take Rodgers any day over Ben Rapistberger.

  19. @tramonwilliams38 …

    Who is Lamarr Woodley? He’s the guy who led James Harrison to the promised land after his INT in SBXLIII, then sacked Warner and stripped the ball to end the game and any chance the Cards had to come back.

  20. Title Town has been reduced to ancient history now. When tv dinners and cigarettes were cool. I think now we will call it TMZ Town…..

  21. Woodly may be running his tweeter but the Packer PLAYERS are making a deal out of this. You would think going to the Super Bowl you would not have time to point fingers and cry. Lets see picture or ring, picture or ring?

  22. It was only last year when Ward called out Roethlisberger…questioning his toughness…I am sure come media day the focus will be the Packers team photo and not the fact that the Steelers QB is a multiple alleged rapist.

  23. Newsflash: Players sometimes have different opinions and sometimes they talk about them openly.

    Oh no!

  24. The only people this story is distracting is Packer and Steeler fans anxiously awaiting a great match up next Sunday.

    If you think this story will have .0001% impact on the outcome of the game, you’re a fool.

    Haters from other teams can talk and judge all they want, but honestly you can’t say with a straight face this team has a schism, or Arod is a jerk or w/e other dumb stuff people are spouting off on here about.

    15 Players on IR. Superbowl. Where’s your team?

    That’s what I thought. Here’s your card.

    Yeah, having a serial rapist as your QB is a complete non-issue…

    _______________________________

    First of all, idiots, there’s no ‘serial rapist’ in a QB getting drunk and DTF with a college kid. Secondly, he was never charged. Get a life already.

    Aaron Rodgers vs. Ben Roethlisberger? Yeah, we’ll see how you feel next Monday.

  26. Oh really “Herb” Woodley? We recently learned that your teammate Kemoeatu has contradicted the official Steelers’ line on the availability of Pouncey in the big game! The Pittsburgh facade of unity is unravelling faster than a cheap towel in a room full of cats! Now where’s your pompous pose of purported peerlessness? Yeah! Huh?!
    Oh and by the way, it should be “we @ Steelers” my friend.

  27. I heard that the Steelers let James Harrison take the team pictures- he’s great at head shots.

    Well I see Packers fans are capable as sinking as low as Ravens and Browns fans. Congrats, dude, you’re in good company.

  29. If you have not heard of Woodley you will next week when he has another ring and a Super Bowl MVP trophy when he KO’D soft chin Rodgers!
    Pitt by 14…

    Chill out dude. Twitter, Facebook, AOL, whatever… no mere trash talk comes close to Rodgers and that stupid pro-wrestling belt dance when it comes to rubbing it into the opponent’s face. (And don’t give me any crap about he doesn’t intend to — it doesn’t change the fact that it’s a taunt.) THAT will be a rallying point for the Steelers, believe me.

  31. First, if this is only issue leading up to super bowl week, then packer nation should be happy. Second, there is only one player really making a big stink about this and then going public with it……It shouldn’t reflect upon the whole team, and how there preparing for the game. Believe me, the Packers are not sitting at home worried about some dumb photo.

  32. bearsblitz78 –

    Your team lost. Have the good decency to hibernate with the rest of your fellow Bear fans, and not descend into the cesspool that is Viking fan territory.

  33. ampatsisahypocrite –

    That’s trash talk? Have you seen some of the stupidity that happens in the end zone? Take your own advice and chill out – dude runs in for a score and does his thing, just like every other player who scores.

  34. @regulator1978 and ndinggeldein …

    Seven guys on your team were accused of rape this summer. Roethlisberger is just as guilty as your players. If you’re stooping to that kind of smack, you must be more worried about the Steelers than I thought. Sad.

  35. That’s right kennyrogerschicken, the Rogers thing IS “stupidity that happens in the end zone” AND is really annoying. Maybe YOU think it’s just “doing his thing” but you gotta be kidding… how is that NOT a rub-in to the other team?

    It’s taunting, dude, face facts.

  36. I love all the comments to the effect that “So and so should be preparing for the game instead of wasting time on Twitter.”

    Sure, but it’s not like with two weeks to prepare for a game it takes a lot of time to log on and type 140 characters. It isn’t like a Packer or Steeler player’s going, “No coach, I’d love to practice, but I gotta go write my novel today.” Why, I’d be willing to bet that multiple players from both teams have watched TV, attended movies, even, (GASP!) gone out to eat in the last week.

    I’ll bet one or two have even strummed a guitar after getting home from practice.

  37. @ packerbacker12

    the packer players not in the photo are the ones who started all this not the media..its the medias job to take a story like that and run with it.if the players wouldnt have run there mouth it would never got out there..i think the players shoudlnt be aloud to tweet during the season period…and Woodleys comments are not bulletin board material…

    woddsons comments are though saying they are going to white house is.saying they got super bowl won before they even win it…
