Default I can see it now...

Sooner or later, the Steelers are going to let go of somebody this offseason, and of course, the media is going to say we're going to miss this guy dearly. This guy is likely going to be Faneca, who is way past his prime and made the Pro Bowl on past reputation alone. Opposing teams' fans are already saying it now.

Then, watch the media blow this departure out of proportion, saying the Steelers are on the fall. Cleveland, this year's media darling, will be the favorite to win the division on paper.

Then theres Free Agency. The Steelers once again go after their singular guy. Steeler fans do their annual tradition of whining about how the Front Office doesn't do anything.

Then watching the Bucs struggle for .500 for the 16th Straight Summer...

Ah, the offseason.

Don't forget, "the Rooneys are cheap!"

Hope he doesn't ask for too much. The Rooneys don't play that...

The media seems to find every single reason in the world every offseason as to what we are doing wrong.

I can't even listen to the Nationally aired ESPN shows or any show hosted by Dick Eisen on the NFL Network any longer. I am always amazed as to how people can get on television or the radio and it appears that they gain all their knowledge by reading the USA Today's sports section.

I gain more insight about my favorite teams from good message boards where true insiders of the team actually reside or from listening online to Junker & Crowe (spelling) in the morning. Jim Wexell, Dale Lolley, and Ed Bouchette are great sources of information about the team. Bouchette's stuff is free as is the radio information. Dale Lolley has a great blog out there that gives good information and Wexell hangs out on another message board from time to time.

Other than Sports Center, nationally aired ESPN really stinks. I stopped listening to them after we won SB XL. They are biased and...although they deny it...they push their own agenda.

Rooneys pay for value, and Ben is value. He'll get the fat new contract he deserves.
