2/3 of the same people whose decision it was to sign duce staley and cedric wilson.

the game of football is not an exact science, as seen by the steelers winning a superbowl with the 2 aformentionned being on the roster.

What's your point?

Staley played 1/2 a game our SB year and Wilson is not that bad.

Mahan was dominated in 17 out of 17 games this year. Mahan had 0 good games. He already nearly got Simms killed in Tampa (literally), its time he sit the bench before Ben or Parker is killed

I'm not sure if he was signed before Tomlin got here or not. Being Tomlin used to coach in Tampa, I was thinking maybe Tomlin pushed for the signing.

get it?

Tomlin won 2 more games with the same outfit that struggled to go 8-8 the year before = progress. Get used to him being around, because he'll be here for a while.

The fact remains that our OL sucked even worse in '06 than this year. Again, if he's such a hot HC prospect, why is it that I still haven't heard Grimm's name mentioned ONCE for any of the slots that have come vacant already? And I'm sorry, I'm calling on the assertion that he was "up front with other teams that interviewed him about wanting to be the Steelers' HC above all else." What teams? And a cardinal rule of ANY interview (not to mention being just plain common sense) is to not say you want another job more - what is the point of interviewing in the first place if you're going to say something like that? The Rooneys wisely wanted to go in a different direction, and it had nothing to do with their being "cheap." I think it has something to do with the fact that maybe the Rooneys know a bit more about this stuff than you or I do. I think you'd be well advised to get off of Grimm's jock - he was actually my first choice too, but he didn't get the job, and I've moved on - you should too.

You keep saying the steelers would have been 6-10 without Ben as the QB, Im interested to hear what games you think we would have lost without him. Besides 2nd cleveland game, what games did he make the "difference"

1st Ravens game (Willie was shut down cold again), Miami game (running game went nowhere again and Ben was 18/21) Seattle game (110-yard drive on one of the scoring marches and again, Ben went 18/22 in that game - or do you think it was our running game that bailed us out of 3 holding calls?). I'm sure you'll disagree, since you sound like the "Madden XBox" type that only appreciates 400-yard+ games week in, week out, am I right? Couple that with the fact that he got sacked a minimum of 3 times a game (and escaped a lot more sacks than that with his own strength) - Maddox would have broken Carr's record for most sacks in a season if he played behind the OL Ben played behind this year.

Your finally right, I do disagree. The defense was the difference in all of the games you listed. Most notably Harrison in the Ravens game, 9 punts and 4- 3 and outs in the seattle game, and well the dolphins game was all about the weather and field position. Your wrong about the Xbox type, I just dont let a "mancrush" blind my view of reality. I give credit where credit is due.

No, you don't. But that's cool - I really don't care. I just thank God you're not in the front office because if you were, we would have challenged Miami for the 1st pick in next season's draft. Brilliant analysis of Grimm as potential HC as well. I'm "finally" right? Well, that's one better than you, I guess, because you have been dead wrong from the get-go. Harrison scored 5 TDs in a half? News to me, pal. BTW, I haven't seen a more obvious "XBox type" around here than yourself in quite a while.
