Pgh traditionally only extends 1 year contracts to their coordinators. Unfortunately I was hoping as many others that Arians wouldn't get another one. :(

Good against the run, I'll agree to that but good against a spread passing offense with a good QB?

The answer is NO. Consider the last SB as a exhibit 1. Consider the last SB we won as exhibit 2. We damn near lost that game to spread offense and quick release QB. We had to win in a shootout. We will lose as many shootout games as we win.

Consider that our secondary is almost total dependent on Troy. If he goes down again, which considering the way he plays and his injury history is quite possible, we will get killed!

If we lose Taylor to free agency then we will be totally fu'ked because we will have nothing back there. Not that Taylor is all that great since he can't catch a cold. Taylor is not famous for INTs.

Looks to me that the Steelers FO has decided that this is a reloading year. We'll beat weaker teams but against a good QB with a spread offense we'll be meat on the table.

Of course if we had a power running game and could keep the opponents offense off the field we might be able to win a few more. Oh I forgot we resigned the Airhead so we won't be running the ball. So much for that idea.

We might even make the playoffs with this team but then we will get blown out. Personally I'll be surprised if we make 10-6. 9-7 is more likely and a playoff miss.

Stick a fork in this season it's all ready over.

i respect your opinion man, but as long as roethlisberger is healthy we should be at least a 10-6 team

and keep your eyes on butler this offseason, i expect him to replace mcfadden as the #2 this year. ike hasn't been dealt yet, i expect him to be bacj

I hope you are correct but I can't see it right now. I see a future of shoot out football and we will lose our share of those games.

OK - guess we can reconnect when we discuss the draft in April 2012 - hope you enjoy the off season that I guess runs until next spring

FWIW if Taylor is not re-signed I agree the Steelers are screwed for 2011

If Taylor is not resigned and Troy P gets hurt again... let's pray it does not happen.

They have to have 2-3 free agent CB's lined up.

Just say NO:

Bryant "10-yards a catch" McFadden
Crezdon "Where is my helmet" Butler

Maybe you didn't get the memo, but we made it to the SB last year with this secondary. You guys sound a lot like chicken little right now.

Maybe you didn't finish watching the SB but GB handed us our ass in two quarters then coasted.

Aaron Rodgers did his Tom Brady impression by throwing for 300, the Steelers didn't even come close to touching him, he threw quick 3-5 step passes, averaged 10y/pass, and we LOST.

I'm pretty sure it's a well known problem that our secondary is horrible but okay. They are awesome and can't wait for that Pat's game.
