    May I suggest a new QB as well?

    And, oh, btw, a new OC, a new DC and a new HC..

    Right now, the Steelers would pick no worse than 8th, so hopefully they'll be able to get a franchise LT. This team has a ton of holes, but solidifying LT would help a lot.

The Steelers are a better team than the Raiders and flat out didn't give a sh*t today. And Tomlin owns a big chunk of responsibility in that fact.
    Agree completely.

    Agreed. We lost to the Titans and Oakland in back-to-back years. Minnesota is a joke and their only win is against us. This team is in big trouble long term if changes aren't made soon.

    Cowher's teams made a habit of playing down to the competition too...
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    There should be 3 LTs who are franchise grade go in the top 15. I don't see the Steelers drafting any other position.

    I was thinking the same thing yesterday when Ben threw that stupid "Johnny Football" type of pick.... ended up getting it back because of an off sides call or something like that...
    The play was still made though...

    For the money we have wrapped up in Ben... he is certainly not performing up to expectation. You can blame it on the OL all you want, and, yes, that is part of the problem. Ben was missing badly on slant routes and drag routes even when he had time.

    With that pathetic performance yesterday, I'd say it's time to clean house and start over.

    As much as I hate to say it, I hope we don't turn this around this season and blow a chance at a difference making draft pick (in each round). I love this team but I'm not interested in any moral victories this season. The business aspect of this dictates if you have a bad record you get a better shot at the better talent coming out. I'd like to have that opportunity for the first time in well over a decade. Hopefully the FO won't blow it.
    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!
