    Actually I would pissed off if they dumped Ben. It would just be another embarrassment on Art's resume.

    The Steelers have never won a Super Bowl since Art began to have an ownership stake in this team.

    He's a 60 year old Jerry Jones wanna-be.

    And that's not a good thing.

    All other seasons we have done what YOU want, been a pass happy team.
    This includes every time we missed a playoff with Ben.
    They were a pass happy team since Ben started in 2004.

    Then in 2010 it all changed. Because Art wants the run game.

    Have to watch the game and not read the box scores.

    Dan Rooney became president of the Steelers in 1975. The team went to 4 Super Bowls during his first decade in charge, and won 4 rings.

    Art Rooney II became president of the Steelers in 2003. The team went to 3 Super Bowls during his first decade in charge, and won 2 rings.

    Good job taking a thread about the tuck rule vote and hijacking it into more of your pro-Ben, anti-Art propaganda IN THE VERY FIRST RESPONSE. That has to be some kind of thread hijacking record...even spammers trying to sell cheap knockoff jerseys aren't so blatant.

    And since he became an owner his role has changed. He's now making FOOTBALL decisions and telling HOF QBs how to play their position.

    Can't compare Art to Dan. Dan's been around this team his whole life. Dan wasn't "president" but he was the one who hired Chuck Noll in 1969. I'd say that was a pretty significant decision in the history of this team.

    Art was a lawyer in private practice for 20 years.

    The tuck rule is a joke. If Kraft tells Goodell he wants it back he'll re-instate it.

    You are incorrect. The original poster mentioned Ben's style of play as the reason they voted for the tuck rule to stay. I responded, on topic that they were talking to Bray, and if they pick him, Ben would be gone, thus making this alleged reason for wanting the tuck rule to stay meaningless.

    Apology accepted.

    If we do, he's the successor.
    What rumors, other than a very vague statement that the Steelers wouldn't rule anything out (the same statement they make every year)?

    There was a rumor that we were going to sign Jake Long. Drafting Ben's replacement in this draft? Chances of that are about the same, IMO.
