    Rooney is happy

    With Tomlin and have high confidence in him, also thought Haley did a excellent job and want him back. Will look into the way they train because of injuries. Says Haley is interviewing with Cards today. From several tweets.

    Also said they need to pressure the qb better, and not sure about any other coaching change on the staff.

    Oh Gee Whiz, as long as HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE is happy, then it's all good. This just in: Us fans are NOT happy, as matter of fact, most of us are ticked off. And if this joke of a situation continues, many of us will stop spending a dime on Steeler football.

    Nobody likes missing the playoffs, but the problems seemed to be more health related than institutional problems. It happens. They will have to follow this year with a couple losing seasons before I'll get to the point of wanting to change HC's, GM's or QB's.

    Here's the sticking points for Chadman from Rooney:

    He says the Offense was "right on pace" through 9 games, and that Ben was achieving his goal of 'much fewer sacks'.

    That's rubbish. Firstly, Rooney was adamant- so much so that he sacked Arians- that the Offense needed to run more. The result? We ran less this year than ANY YEAR UNDER ARAINS. Even the 2012 Colts, under ARAINS, ran the ball more than the 2012 Steelers. This Offense was not on the pre-2012 season Rooney version of 'Right on pace'. In fact, Haley's offense was doing the polar opposite of what Rooney wanted. As for the sacks- 42 last year, 37 this year. Is 5 'much less'?

    He then goes on to say 'focus' played it's part in the Steelers woes. Right- agreed. But who was to blame for a lack of focus & team chemistry this season? How about the 'retiring' of Arians, obviously not a choice of Tomlin's, before the season kicked off? How did that work for 'focus'? was it a distraction? The media sure thought so. And then hiring Haley, who everyone knew has the tendency to 'shake things up'. How did that help 'focus' when your star QB is suddenly given an OC designed to 'shake the cage'? And then the Mike Wallace/Antonio Brown contract saga- want to talk about focus & team chemistry? How do you think Brown getting Wallace's 'money' helped 'focus' this season?

    The very things Rooney bemoans as reasons for a poor season stem from him.

    "He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."

    One needs to look within themselves, Chadman suspects.
