    Gotta disagree. All of the freelancing and poor coverage design is on the coordinator. The DB coach usually does not set the coverages or schemes before each play. He may have input, but that is not his responsibility in normal situations.

    Now if your point is that he isn't coaching up his players, then I withdraw my disagreement.

    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Pretty sure he was being sarcastic with regard to Carnell Lake being fired.

    And let's face it .. Cowher ain't coming back, no matter how many roses and kisses are sent his way. Meyer? I live in Ohio and I think he stays at his dream job for as long as possible. He's got kids getting ready for college and a wife that would kick his butt if he tried to go to the NFL (considering his "exhaustion" problems at Florida).

    Also why keep Haley? Not much has changed for the better during his tenure. And sorry, but the few times I've heard Butler speak, he sounds like an egotistical meat head.

    Good call!
    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!

    No way would I want Cowher or Gruden. They are both best where they are now as talking heads. Cowher is just an attention whore who would make us non-competitive in what is now a pass first league. But rest assured he would perform enough antics on the sideline to get his mug on the TV at least half a dozen times a game.

    Urban Meyer IMO could be another Bobby Petrino and just walk out on the team if something more interesting popped up.

    If Butler is more of the same then he needs to go too. We need someone on the defense who will think out of the box and really switch things up.

    Sorry SKL, I think that is delusional.

    And then you go on and suggest the Steelers should draft a train wreck like Colt Lyerla? A guy who got arrested for having cocaine (actually was caught in the act of doing cocaine), in his procession? And three weeks prior to that he walked out on his team and basically quit?

    Yeah that reality.
    As far as Erving he is the 2nd best LT in the draft. With the salary cap situation this team is handcuffed. Lyerla will be the only first round talent available in the 6th round. He is already undergoing counseling. While I don't think this team would take the chance I would!! As far as knocking the suggestions of starting a rookie LB, Thomas and Allen. I am sure Seahawks fans thought talk of starting Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and KJ Wright a couple years ago were laughed at too. We could do alot worse. We could trade Ben and could draft AJ McCarron (or could have drafted your boy Matt Barkley last year).
    2015 Draft

    1) P.J. Williams-CB-Florida St.

    Is that what you read form my post? Read it again. Slowly. I am knocking the fact that you think just by adding those 4 to the starting lineup it is going to result in a quick turn around for the Steelers. Those were your words.

    Now, take your hatred towards me and put it aside. Half the things you think I am saying, I am not. It's kind of making you look like...well...you know. If there was anyone on this forum who is all for starting young players, it's me. Think about it.

    Keep taking shots at me because you think I am saying one thing, when I am not, makes you look pretty immature.

    I thought that when the Steelers stopped Butler from going to Miami a couple of years ago was because it was implied that he was their DC going forward? Then again, maybe Tomlin will make the switch to the 4-3 when LeBeau leaves. Now would be the time, the talent doesn't really seem that much more suited for a 3-4 than a 4-3 anymore anyway - does it?
