Default What If: The Retarded Version

I've been reading a lot of stuff on these boards this offseason that makes me chuckle (and some stuff that's SO stupid, it makes me angry), but I got to wondering: What IF some of the know-it-alls here actually DID get to run the team? How would it look? Would we win any games?

I decided to compile a few here and get the ball rolling...please chime in with the ones I'm forgetting. In the end we can examine the team that would take the field and see what the play-calling would be like.

(This is in the Blast Furnace for good reason)

-We'd start with the obvious. Bruce Arians would be fired, and we'd bring in a new OC, one who runs the ball 60% of the time, because "That's Steelers football".

-Parker would be cut, and Mewelde Moore would be the starter, because the Steelers are only effective with MM in the game.

-Timmons would be cut because he'll be too expensive in 3 years (see where this is headed?)


Please feel free to chime in with any and all "suggestions".

We wouldn't have sniffed the SB because a few idiots here wanted to bench Ben and start Leftwich for the playoffs.

That's the spirit!

So we have a two-deep of
QB- 1) Lefty 2) Ben
RB- 1) MM 2) Gary Russell (because we cut Parker)

Don't forget mortgaging approx. the next half-decade worth of drafts to be able to trade up far enough to get Mack in the most recent draft!

We'd have an all rookie offensive line

We'd trade Santionio Holmes now because he's going to be too expensive to keep.

Get rid of Sweeeeeed because he dropped that pass in the playoff game against the Rats. Like Ben and FWP - he suuuuuuucks.

I'm sure some of you remember the moron a few years back who said Dick Lebeau should retire as he is "too old and the game has passed him by".

EDIT: Gary just reminded me that this idiot also included with his moronic post that "Dick Lebeau pisses his pants".
