If true, that’s ridiculous
    The tweet was from @FAUXvicfangio

    Don't blame Munchak one bit for ditchin' this dumpster fire.

    Next year will be worse.

    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    Lol, Denver has no owner, no QB and an ego problem in the front office.

    When Tomlin said there were going to be changes to the coaching staff, I had envisioned some improvement, but after losing Munch and Saxon, I'd have to say it's change for the worse.
    I would also agree with this and add that it is an embarrassing reflection on the team as well. Only one of Munchak's daughters live in Denver. I would think that would make for an attractive bonus to take a job in Denver but not necessarily be the reason to pack up and move there. I think the other daughter is in LA, but he's leaving the rest of his PA family...and the men he has shared a sideline with for the past 5 seasons for a place he has never lived and to coach for a guy he's never worked with.

    Maybe that spin just supports a narrative we are trying to weave, but I think it's pretty telling.

    spinning this as "he just left to be closer to family" is incredibly naive

    Vic Fangio is from Dunmore, PA and Mike Munchak is from Scranton, PA. Those two towns border each other, and they are only 2 years apart. Two guys who are essentially the same age and from the same basic hometown and have both coached in the NFL for decades...they know each other.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Yep.

    This is also the reason that I wouldn't have wanted Munchak as HC, even though he's been awesome at OL coach.

    It's a tough loss, but hopefully we can weather it. OL is one of the few position groups I hope not to worry much about this off season (along with QB and DL).
