    You would think right?
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    Thanks for putting a positive spin on it Ruth but right now, Butler is persona non grada to most of the Steeler nation. But I hope it turns out like your trying to say. But first we gotta get him something to work with other then T.J. Watt.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    Strongly agree with the highlighted part.

    Butler doesnít care what you think

    LATROBE, Pa. -- The two most roundly criticized men in Pittsburgh are probably Bob Nutting and Keith Butler.

    Nutting, the owner of the Pirates, obviously doesn't care much about that. He's made that obvious by his spending habits with the team.

    Butler? Well, the Steelers defensive coordinator/outside linebackers coach doesn't care all that much about the outside noise, either.

    He's more concerned about doing his job and the things necessary to win a Super Bowl in Pittsburgh.
