Ryan Clark Says Teammate Ripping Woodley Shows Fracture In Steelers
This morning we reported on the anonymous teammate who blasted Steelers star linebacker LaMarr Woodley, saying Woodley was “awful last season.”
Steelers safety Ryan Clark was on NFL AM this morning, and stated that he wished the teammate “would have kept those comments to himself,” and also hinted at such a choice by a teammate “shows the fracture” in the Steelers lockerroom.
“My biggest problem with that is not LaMarr, or is not someone’s feelings about LaMarr,” Clark said. “My problem is now it’s public. We were talking about the Ravens earlier, we were talking about the brotherhood, we were talking about the family that they were. We all have arguments with our brothers, sisters, cousins, but that stays in-house. What you talk about then stays there and it doesn’t get out to the public. So that is the problem. …
“That shows that this team that is normally close, you had the Joey Porters, the Alan Fanecas, just down the line, leader after leader, this team was close-knit. It shows there is a fracture in that. I think that is the most disappointing thing about that coming out.”
Clark let it be known that Woodley is in Arizona working out hard, and we’ll be ready to go in 2013.
