End of story.

If Ben does anything else says anything about remotely being hurt, sad, mad, pissed. then I say we are in the business of looking for a QB that is a true team leader instead of the selfish little prick that I think most of us would think he elevated himself to be.

He's not going to say anything even close to that. Sheez........

I hear ya.
I'm sure he's both excited and at the same time interested in learning and working new offensive schemes, you can be sure of that.

I agree with being tired about this story.


However, I've not heard ANYTHING from Ben, so why the comment about him needing to stop being butt-hurt? Did I miss it somewhere?

BTW, I would have no problem with him saying he was sad to see him go, by all accounts they got along very well. HOWEVER, he will need to move on, and I suspect he'll do just that...

(just an alternative viewpoint)
Because we all know the only reason the Rooneys have allowed LeBeau to hang on is because LeBeau is their yes monkey puppet who allows Art and Dan Rooney to call in the defensive alignments from the owners box

I get that you think Arians got screwed but continuing to claim his departure was at least in part because the Rooneys are micromanagers and the Steel City versions of Jerry Jones is, with all due respect, nonsense

Maybe becuase Arians took it upon himself to claim Ben was not happy with his departure rather than let any statemnt on that matter come from #7?

I'm not "claiming" anything.

It's a rainy, boring Thursday and I saw a pot that needed stirring...

...so I stirred. (thus, the popcorn) -------------------->
