    Point taken. Maybe by his tenth year, Rooney will let him fire and hire a coordinator.

    8 years ago a 4-3 guy came in preaching "violent football", and ever since we've run a 3-4 and been...

    His tweet last week was about the bungling of the Ray Rice case. That would be like OJ Simpson tweeting something admonishing Aaron Hernandez.

    Who has he hired so far? Dick Haley's son? Rooney has controlled the assistants since Tomlin took over.

    Butler was getting interview offers when Cowher was here and stayed. The job is his.

    Can somebody explain this one? DL surprised that a 4-6-1 goal line D couldn't stop passes at the goal line?

    • It didn't quite turn out like it was planned in its debut, but the new Steelers...

    The problem is we're drafting DL high in the draft now. The reason they go high is because of their ability to crush the pocket. And then we re-educate them for years, trying to get them to stand...

    OK, maybe James should keep quiet on battery issues, then, since he's, you know, a batterer.

    And in Ben's defense, that was only his 3rd season in the league. He hadn't yet got all of the boozing and dick-slapping of co-eds out of his system yet. He's grown tremendously since then.

    I'd like to see Tomlin hire his own guy to take over the D if LeBeau retires. Tomlin's a 4-3 guy and kept LeBeau in 2007 because there was a great record of success. Not anymore. If they...

    I'm not necessarily advocating the move, I just think that's what's going to happen. Carson Palmer is all but finished and Bruce needs a QB. I know Ben said he wants to retire in Pittsburgh, but...

    I'd love to see Brady and Manning play for a year behind some of the OLs Ben's had. But even if I grant you the two guys that many consider to be the best QBs of all time, anyone else?

    Speaking of Kuechly, he's only 6-3, 238 and plays MLB in a 4-3. Shazier weighs the same, and is an inch shorter. Shazier has the range and tackling ability to play MLB, IMO, and it could be the...

    Exactamundo! No coincidence that they desperately reached out to Keisel and kept Ike and Troy a year past when they should be gone. The combination of Tomlin and Colbert has been completely...

    True, but it was largely against a schedule of tomato cans. Mixed in that finish were a home loss to the Phins in the snow, the annual loss in Oakland, and a double nickel in Foxboro.

    Five years ago this is a game the Steelers would go down and win on national TV. Tough spot after a bad loss, they bow their backs and administer a beat down.

    This team is lacking in character...

    Tomlin won't get fired, Haley might, LeBeau will step down and Butler will assume the throne with no input from Tomlin.

    Also, look for Ben to be traded, likely to Arizona. This team needs a lot...

    And Harrison should shut the F up. If Goodell and our owner didn't look the other way, he would have missed games for hitting his lady.

    5-11 feels right. I don't see quick fixes to the DL or OL problems, and they are great. 7-9 if a couple of our DL get hurt, forcing LeBlow to simplify the system for Tuitt and McCullers, who are...

    They're giving up 4.9 YPC on the ground - I say pound it down their throats. That pass rush will eat our terrible offensive tackles alive.

    The 1978 Steelers were the top ranked defense in the league. The 1979 Steelers were the 5th ranked defense in the NFL.

    Mitchell's only good season was last year, when he played behind a great front 7. Like signing Larry Brown after SB XXX.

    LeBeau inherited an amazing roster in 2004, and a damn good one in 1995, his two successful stints as DC. Go back and look at his numbers in Cincy as DC. They look a lot like they do today.

    How long will Rooney accept LeBeau's shoulder shrugging "It's going to take several years" bull****? Other defenses play young players and have success.
