    Hi all new here just thought I would like to get into this particular topic. To tell you the truth I like Beachum (sp) at tackle better than Adams. I have been watching him specifically during the course of these last games he has started, he has some good feet, he keeps them moving as to keep himself between Ben and defense. In the time he has played he has done a better job the Adams. Adams is like a revolving door, he plants his feet and cannot get them started again. So when a player moves up field on him he has rooted himself to the ground and the player runs around him. For a 7 round pick Beach has been playing really well, over the off season he needs to put on some upper body strength, but his legs and gluteus max are good size. Anyway, just thought I would put in my thoughts. Again Hello

    May not have a choice.

    Exactly. That is the level they are at right now. They may become very good but they aren't now.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Well, we got our last o-line coach from the Bills...why not the next one?

    Since Chan Gailey will most likely be canned, why not Aliquippa native Joe D'Alessandris, who worked with Haley at KC in 2009?

    Hell, he developed Urbik when we couldn't. Why not.

    How bout with replace Haley with Chan? I was always a Chan fan. Look what he did with Kordell. Just imagine what he could do with Ben.

    Changing Off Coord every year is a recipe for disaster. Haley hasn't done anything to warrant not being retained. If he leaves to become a head coach that is one thing but he is doing a good job with not even a full year on the job.
