    I say No thanks. If you going to clean house start fresh.
    That's what happens to a team built by Cowher & Colbert is replaced by a team built by Tomlin & Colbert. You become a loser but at least you get the catchy 1 line phrases that comes with Tomlin's press conferences.

    We both know Ben played well under Cowher. Why isn't he now?

    No excuse for Ben's TO problem. Being careless with the football would be an understatement.

    And he played well for Tomlin, 1SB WIN and another appearance. It might just be Ben on the downside of his career, coaching can't make a player not throw ints or hold the ball like a loaf of bread. Besides things that you do long enough there will always be Defensive C to exploit it.

    Cowher never valued the QB position in his just don't make a mistake approach which is why he never had a good one. That is the reason he was a play off failure when you need a star QB to win the big one.
    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!

    Part of the reason this team is in the crapper is because we held onto old players for too long. No thank you.. Cowher is too old school IMO. We would probably have an improved running game but the D would still stink at critical times and our passing game and OL protection would still be a problem.

    ..and the ST's would REALLY suck.

    Maybe the solution is to look at others teams that have turned things around and see what they are doing?
    Lets look outside of Pittsburgh....

    104.2

    144.2

    88.4 (accident year)

    96.5

    62.0 (shoulder)

    108.7
    -------------------------

    Those are Ben's first quarter QB rankings from years 2004-2009.

    But then, after Art demanded a commitment to the run after 2009?

    79.1

    103.9

    96.6

    80.6

    See the change? They've taken a QB who kicked ass early in games, set the pace, and slowed him down.

    And now the team's paying for it because when you try to steal wins late? Sometimes your the windshield, and sometimes your the the bug.

    All because resting our defense became the priority.
    So it's Rooney's fault that Ben runs the hurry up so slow we get a delay of game penalty? I see

    So it's Rooney's fault that Ben holds on to the ball so long that he gets sacked and it takes us out of FG range? I see

    So it's Rooney's fault that, down by seven and on the seven yard line, where the only thing you can't do is throw short of the goal line or take a sack Ben takes a sack? I see

    So it's Rooney's fault that when Ben does one of his magical escapes from a D lineman he looks downfield and overthrows his receiver instead of running for the 1st down and keep the drive alive? I see

    Thanks for pointing this out to me.
