If they got Wallace and a few defensive players they would be looking at another 16-0 season especially with their usual powder puff schedule. Rooney said he wanted to change and improve the offense and he did already. Losing your fastest and maybe your best WR wont make the offense better. He also said keeping Wallace was a big prority, I am confident we will keep him, plus we know the consequences if he goes to the Pats.
When the hell are NE' s O-line going to come down with multiple, major injuries????????

Getting back to the thread topic, sounds like Art Rooney agrees with Bruce the departure was not voluntary

Steelers president Art Rooney II offered a slightly different version about Bruce Arians' departure than the official announcement by the team last week that the offensive coordinator had retired.

"Bruce had talked about retirement for a few years now. I think it was time for a change, and we're looking forward to moving on."

what is funny is that after the initial reports were that bruce had retired (which everybody with a half a brain knew wasnt true) both bruce and the steelers org rushed to the podium to say he was basically forced out and no longer welcome.

i think its pretty funny that art II wants no part in the public thinking that bruce left on his own accord.

Now this statement on Bruce's part only stirs the pot even more. Not only were many of Arians' critics pointing out the fact that no teams were seeking to interview him for a HC position, but now it's revealed that he even seeked them out, and got no interviews! Personally Bruce, I woulda' kept that shit to myself.
