Default Steelers need to shake up coaching staff

Steelers need to shake up coaching staff
Sunday, January 13, 2008

After reflecting on the Steelers season, it's evident that Ben Roethlisberger is a mediocre quarterback at best. Maybe he'll learn when to throw the ball instead of holding it too long and ending up taking a sack or throwing an interception.

Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians and special teams coach Bob Ligashesky were 2-14 when they had similar coaching jobs in Cleveland. Great credentials. The Steelers' special teams play reflects Ligashesky's guidance. Arians' play-calling also left a lot to be desired. Some of the red-zone plays Arians called were inappropriate, and when it came time to kill the clock to maintain a lead and win a game, he had no game plan at all.

Along with these mistakes, coach Mike Tomlin had served one season as the defensive coordinator for a losing team -- the Minnesota Vikings -- and the only reason he was selected to coach the Steelers was because he accepted a lower salary. The Rooneys saved millions of dollars when they hired him. It was quite evident this year that they got what they paid for.

There are a lot of good players on this team who deserved better, not to mention the fans who who were again disappointed. Steelers fans have a year to recover and hope the Steelers' shortcomings will go away. That won't happen if the Rooneys keep their current braintrust.


Blown call

How dare Mike Prisuta criticize the officiating in the Steelers-Jaguars game, yet omit a pass interference call on the Jaguars when the Steelers had a fourth-and-goal at the 1-yard line that resulted in an automatic first down.

A Jaguars' player's facemask was being held by Hines Ward. This was so clear that the announcers on the broadcast, a non-biased broadcast crew, identified it.

Omitting obvious information that runs counter to one's beliefs is nothing more than pure politics and is not sports reporting.

I would not be surprised if he has not yet received "death threats" yet. Who in the hell is this guy?

I really wonder how a 2-14 offensive coordinator had his offense playing in the playoffs against us?

The verdict is in, folks - "Vince Oddo from Greensburg" (the clown that wrote that BS) is a blithering idiot.

Didn't the same players and fans deserve better than what they got from Cowher in 2006 by this rationale? At about triple the salary that Tomlin got this year? Fact is, Tomlin inherited a highly flawed team and it will take some time to correct the deficiencies - that's not Tomlin's fault.

This guy is a jackass.. some of his comments are right about the playcalling and speical teams coaching..but saying Tomlin was picked b/c of a money saving situation, and Big Ben is mediocre at best is plain old idiotic.
