    I agree with a lot of what he said, and it went right along with a lot of the comments on this board. It's too bad that you can't force BA and MT to read what the fans think

    The Steelers offensive line was responsible for 23 of the 50 sacks this year.

    Default Interesting!

    Received this from a source close to the Steelers, who I am not familiar with or able to confirm or deny, in an email titled "Not good"


    Before giving you the list of Steelers signed to the futures roster, here's a great story http://blogs.chron.com/fantasyfootba...fire_my_1.html from Larry Zierlein's son, Lance Zierlein, a blogger for the Houston Chronicle. It should interest many of you. He's a great writer and better person. I, for one, will miss this family in Steeler Nation.

    I think firing Zierlein falls right in line with not firing Bruce Arians, meaning the coach is simply following the most popular path. Don't be fooled for one second into believing most fans wanted Arians gone. That's what the BA-influenced media will have you believe as they root through all the fresh stats their beloved BA has provided for them. It was also just as easy to fire the coach of an O-line that's shown improvement even though it has little talent and depth.

    * OK, these are the newly signed Steelers: TE Eugene Bright, WR Jason Chery, S Tuff Harris, DT Steve McLendon, RB Isaac Redman, RB Justin Vincent, CB Trae Williams, K Piotr Czech and DT Scott Paxson.

    My first reaction is that Czech is being brought back in case they can't re-sign Jeff Reed, and that's troublesome because, a.) Reed should only require a simple slap of the franchise tag to be kept, and b.) Czech didn't show much leg strength on kickoffs and that's the only partial flaw I see with Reed. Of course, Czech didn't show much accuracy in preseason, either, going 3 for 5 with misses from 36 and 40.

    My second reaction to the list is a question: Why in the world couldn't Tuff Harris replace a.) Tyrone Carter, or b.) any of Carter's backups who were deemed unworthy of replacing Carter?

    That's why teams can't keep these old vets around. It just blocks up the pipeline and lets the coaches become lazy and gets them off the hook as they rely on the experienced vet.

    You know, I must disclose this to you, that after Mike Tomlin kept Arians, after backing up his OC's season-breaking playcalls in Kansas City and Cleveland, I've found that I don't trust any decision Tomlin makes anymore. I don't know if it's just me, or whether the confidence of fans throughout the country has eroded, but it's going to take a while for me to rekindle the enthusiasm I once had for this coach. And it has nothing to do with his "Unleash Hell" type of comments or him not making changes after promising to CONSIDER making them, which seems to have needlessly undone the rest of the Pittsburgh media. It has more to do with the "I'd do it again" 2-point conversion from the 12 and on third-and-2 in Kansas City, along with keeping a guy who's feminized the offense.

    I'll also tell you this: I've learned that Ben Roethlisberger "completed a Hail Mary" to save Arians's job. Ben went to Tomlin and begged him to keep Arians, that Arians was done otherwise.

    THAT is actually more disconcerting to me than keeping Arians in the first place. The QB has too much power within the organization, and this will only enhance that power.

    Here's to hoping tomorrow will be a better day.
