For the record...My expectations have been exceeded this year.

Lombardi might contemplate suicide before having to pander to this generation. I'm fairly young compared to Vince and I feel that way.

But actually my point is that there should be no blame. Cowher gave us a Super Bowl and the subsequent fallout. Thanks Bill. I'll take that.

The reciprocal is equally if not a greater stretch because Tomlin was only dealt a hand. Blaming the current coaches for Cowher's fallout is ridiculous considering Tomlin won the AFC North with basically the same team.

What I want is for Colbert and the scouting department to be well financed to fix one of the biggest problems in recent Steeler history. A VACANT offensive line. Not weak. VACANT.

I like Lebeau staying but I am not sold on Arians, Special Teams and O-line coaches should probably be shown the door.

How can you say sticking with LeBeau is going into the future? One of the biggest problem on this team is the lack of consistent pressure on the QB. The only pressure comes from exotic blitzes. When good teams pick up the blitz, it leaves wide open receivers. The key to the Steelers' success is QB pressure from the defensive line, which is not happening now. This will lead to turnovers, good field position, and more opportunities for the offense.

I hope Tomlin forces LeBeau to start putting in more of the 4-3. LeBeau must go - it's time to stop feeling so sentimental and put the best defensive scheme on the field. The 3-4, with the weak defensive lineman we have right now, is not the best idea for the Steelers.

I don't think the problem with Arians was his ability to coachb but his play calling, my issue has always been that the Steelers offensively never play to win, just not to lose. He's back and I am sure he will correct his mistakes. I glad LeBeau is back.
Definately special teams must be addressed, we have sucked at that for too long. The O-Line coach may not be the best but what did he have to work with, Mahan was terrible and to be honest should be gone, NOT moved to guard like I have read, and there were injuries. I am sure we will be fine next season if we draft for depth, We need a top O Lineman, dline depth and depth at RB, in my opinion anyway.
Cant wait for the draft, lol

Because he is a great defensive coordinator and we still have 3-4 personell. How does it hurt the future at all for Tomlin to collaborate with one of the best defensive minds of the past two decades?!

BTW, I'm extremely happy to see both coordinators back. There's no denying that Ben made a huge jump this season. IMO, his work with Arians and Anderson helped him alot. This was Bens first season calling audibles and protections, the playbook was minimized to an extent early on, things can only get better next year. If you couple that with a better running game (more consistent) and better O-line play, the sky is the limit.

I'm with everyone else on a new O-line and STs coach.

I'd give Zierlien one more season with an overhauled line and a healthy Marvel Smith.

Ligashesky needs to go.

As for Arians and Lebeau staying - I couldn't be happier!
