    Funny, I used to think 60's were 'old people'.... now it seems like it's a lot younger than it used to.

    Godspeed to Drake...
    ...............
    From the 2010-2019 season, (An 9 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.

    My official proclamation: WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. So why delay the inevitable?

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    When AB retires from football because of the helmet thingy, maybe we could bring him back as a WR coach.

    I don’t even know how to respond to this news. So sad, so young. I feel really bad for the family.

    RIP Coach Drake.

    Not the kinda Steelers headline I was looking for when I got home yesterday. R.I.P Coach Drake

    Was really sad to hear about this. Just awful to see somebody so young pass away suddenly. Everything I've read about Coach Drake indicates that he was a truly great guy.

    The Steelers are hurting after the loss of receivers coach Darryl Drake, who died Sunday. "We are all devastated," coach Mike Tomlin said. "I really can't think of any appropriate words." The Steelers have spent the last few days supporting the Drake family, and Tomlin has ordered grief counselors on site at Saint Vincent College. "Professionally, obviously the loss is significant but personally it's even bigger," Tomlin said.

    Mike Tomlin remembers Darryl Drake: ‘A father, a mentor, a brother, an advisor.'
    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.
