LaMarr Woodley chats with The Scores Report

While the Steelers aren’t having the season they envisioned after winning the Super Bowl last year, linebacker LaMarr Woodley is turning in a solid 2009 campaign. The third-year linebacker has racked up nine sacks and 45 tackles through 13 games this season and has helped steady a defense that has been hit by a rash of injuries. Woodley was kind enough to chat with The Scores Report about a variety of topics, including his fondest memory of winning the Super Bowl last season, what his secret was to becoming the first player in NFL history to record three consecutive multi-sack games in the postseason, and which running back is the toughest to bring down.

LW: The toughest challenge is trying to repeat as champion, period.
