No context for how Taylor has any pertinent insights on the Steelers (unless he has been talking to his new teammate) but FWIW the Dolphins are not exactly in Indy's or New England's class when it comes to having a stable operation - pot, meet kettle.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Dolphins also make a change at HC very recently? Mr. Taylor needs to worry about his own team and treat himself to a big steaming cup of STFU.

the guy needs to stop partying and realize he has a long way to go to be a successful QB rather than one who is told not to make mistakes.
i gotta put alot of that on the coaching staff. im not sure if it was because of cowher or the rooneys, that they didnt even employ a quarterbacks coach until 2001, but looking how jeff reed wanted a simple practice tool to help his place kicking and cowher said "no", im thinking it was cowher.

im really beginning cowher wanted to move up and get deangello hall or dunta robinson in the draft and colbert and robinson told him to deal with taylor and big ben. its possible he hancuffed their development and no big suprise they seem to be the 2 players most excited about the change.

or perhaps a bowl of soup:



like atlanta dan implied, its obvious porter has been filling taylors head full of crap. i guess we can all be glad tomlin doesnt have the belichick hype machine behind him like nick saban did.

its good to see porter and his new team mates are bonding so well though. he must think harrison is going to suck replacing him in the line-up.

Yeah, it's kinda obvious Peezy has been feeding Taylor some of his sour grapes.

I hope Ex-Bungle Ken Anderson can turn Ben into a pro and develop him. I haven't heard any input from him yet.

You gotta give Ken Anderson a break...he has seen the black and light by coming to the team!

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

I don't get the Cowher/Ben hatred thing at all...

Cowher was/is one of the best coaches to ever walk a sideline.

Ben has the tools both physically and is instinctive...not smart...but instinctive in the pocket, and one of the best QB's the Steelers have ever had..if not for TB.

I'm unsure about this Tomlin guy and his laid back approach.

Noll...was not laid back.

Cowher...was not laid back.

How do you get that Tomlin is laid back? he seems to be in the office more then Cowher, pushing the team harder then Cowher did last year, and getting a lot of good early feedback. Noll was the same way. Actually, out of the three, Cowher is the odd man out, walking up and down the sideline spitting and fuming. Don't get me wrong, I loved it. But that is not the ONLY way to coach, and not doing that doesn't mean another coach is laid back (Cowher not doing it last year however, DOES seem to impy that).

Wow all this coming from a Dolphins player, didn't this team win like 6 games and coach bailed out on them to go coach in college. Talking about a mess JT should look at his team make up if he thinks the Dolphins are in good shape. Didn't the fans boo the FO and Cameron with the selection of Ted Ginn Jr. with the 9th pick?
