I doubt that he got "Shafted"

Why is it not the other way around? Why isn't it us treating him the same way we treated Bettis the last few years of his career? Thanks for the years, thanks for the memories, you still have some left in the tank, so instead of you relocating, stay around and teach the young guys how to do it. We will also let you come in and close out games.... (only as a fullback, instead of Bettis and a halfback)?

Where would Dan go? Most other teams want more than just a blocking FB, and not that Dan can't do those things there's just not much evidence (film) of him doing it. 95% of the time the Steelers have used him one way, as a human battering ram. If you look around the league, there are few to no other teams that take to the running game the same way, and now with Arians in charge of the offense we are moving away from that too. I agree that he's in a similar situation as Bettis, he's got some left in the tank and he's a great guy to have as an on/off field leader. He just may not be the best option as a starter.

As for Cope, I feel almost kind of the same way about him as I feel about my grandfather who is in his 80's. I love him and respect him for who he is, but I can no longer listen to him as a voice of reason because he's kind of losing it. So I'll never disagree or disrespect him, but I will keep his statements in proper perspective.

I think Myron has a point,if they are going to ease Davis into the role I would understand but to yank Krider right out from under Parker is puzzling. You can spell Krider with Davis and see what happens...Change scares people and we have had a lot of change...What if Davis falls on his face? I imagine Krider will be inactive so it will be a leap of faith..My head is spinning from all this stuff..2 days to go...I will give the benefit to Tomlin...like he needs that..just my 2 cents...
