    Default Stay the Course

    Make no mistake about it,there will be changes in 2013 for the Pittsburgh Steelers,and rightfully so.The organization and fan base will not accept an 8-8 record.
    However, when you look at the moves made on Black Monday,you see alot of the usual suspects, Cleveland,Buffalo,Arizona K.C teams that haven't had much success lately.
    Some of these franchises don't and never will "get it".Knee jerk reactions just don't cut it. In any business you have a solid plan and cooperation between all phases of the organization. I lifted this from N.F.L Com, and it states exactly why I
    expect the Steelers to bounce back strong next season.
    Consider, for instance, the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers. Neither team made the playoffs in 2012, but both will stay the course, solve their problems internally and bounce back next season.

    Why is it that the Giants and Steelers have the right infrastructure in place while so many others don't? The answer lies in the lessons learned from losing. Before they became modern success stories, both the Giants and Steelers endured long periods of futility, perennially counted among the ranks of losing teams. But then the Giants hired George Young and the Steelers hired Chuck Noll, both of whom solved their respective organizations' problems and installed a winning infrastructure that both teams still use today. The Giants and Steelers have replaced talented people with talented people since then, but the teams' core approaches haven't changed. Many NFL teams have yet to learn such lessons.

    I'm glad we are not managed by the GMs of those organizations or by some of the fans who call in to the local sports shows after we come up short of winning a Super Bowl every year - always quick to call players busts and for coaches to be axed.

    With that being said, I'm fully expecting roster changes - roster personnel changes occur at the end of every season and I don't see why this one would be any different. Some people just take it a little too far with the decapitations in my opinion.

    There is no doubt though, this team has to change a few things in order to get back on track and I'll leave it up to the folks who keep us competitive on a consistent basis and have brought us two Super Bowls over an 8-year span - unlike myself, they get paid to right the ship and bring hardware to this city.

    I'll say this. Mike Tomlin is not a great coach. I kind of think it is time for a change, and I know I'm not alone on that.
