    AFC North: Cleveland's new coaches

    I was really hoping that Haslam would make the wrong move with his first coaching hire. But I have to give him credit. Chudzinski was a good hire.

    That guy always has a top 10 offense everywhere he goes. Hell, he made Derek Anderson look like a decent QB in 2007.

    Then they made another good move. He brought in Norv Turner as his OC. That guy sucks as a Head Coach, but damn he can coordinate an offense.

    The real key for them is going to be whether they keep Jauron as DC. That defense was stout this year.

    Hate to say it but our Division is much tougher than in the past. Cinci has made the playoffs 3 out of the last 4 years. Baltimore has made it 5 straight. Cleveland may finally be on the rise.

    Meanwhile we have missed 2 out of the last 4 years with one Super Bowl appearance.

    We may have a few dry years til we can re-load.

    If the Steelers can have the best QB in the division (by far) and still only be an average team, then that just illustrates how below-average the rest of the team is.

    I'm not saying it will happen quickly. The Division is tough and Ben is injury prone. Look to Steve Mcnair's career arc for what I think you will see with Ben.

    Injuries pile up over time.

    Until the Steelers commit to real changes and putting more value on offense than defense then we will be lagging in the AFC North as we go forward. Offense wins in this league. You don't need the top defense anymore as we proved this year.
    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!

    We need to put the emphasis on scoring POINTS.

    Not resting our defense with TOP and then gloating over their "ranking".

    All of the 8 remaining play off teams are in the top 12 scoring Ds in the league. That tells me D does still matter.
