you have to remeber as well, we are talking about the rooneys, We arent talking about al davis who couldnt find an nfl head coach if they hit him right square in the face, we are talking about having an owner that has done a great job of bringing in great assitants and head coaches. I wonder how much pissing and moaning there was when Cowher was hired ahead of Wannestadt and Joe Greene

Ok Bill Cowher is gone. Get get get over it. Another thing Cowher wasn't going to coach this team forever. I'm looking forward to the new era of Steelers football and I hope Mike Tomlin is the man.

Remember this.

We have very little of the information the Rooneys have.

I really DIDN"T want Grimm. however, I trust the Rooney's completely.

they have done a great job over the last 30 years or so.

Furthermore, since we don't have "The Chief" deciding who will be head coach based on who will enjoy the horseraces the best, We really don't have to worry!!

Right, but during these ten years they have won a super bowl and been to 3 other AFC championships. The steelers have always been the type of team to draft and develop their players. You can't complain about the amount success they've had without blowing money in free agency. The Rooneys know a lot more than you do about what is right for the franchise, let them make the decisions.

Ron Rivera? Good defense against a week schedule. It should have been good.
This is Rivera's resume:

In 1999, Rivera was named linebackers coach for the Philadelphia Eagles. During his tenure the Eagles advanced to the NFC (National Football Conference) Championships for three consecutive seasons. He is credited with developing linebacker Jeremiah Trotter into a two-time Pro Bowl performer.

Tomlin is WAY better, although I was kind of hoping for Grimm.
More on Tomlin.

I do not know that I will be as disappointed as I originally thought with the 4-3.
I mean we have only won 4 SB with that defense.

The problem is that MOSTfans like you are not objective...You think that everything the Rooneys do is right. Just because you speak against your team doesn't mean that you are not a fan. ANd I could be wrong about Tomlin, but I could be right too! We already have a member named Preacher on here...
