Default Big Snack Speaks Out

With Hines, and now Big Snack publicly commenting about the coaches, there is clearly a problem. And with Tomlin “putting the players on notice”. It could be a big problem.

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09331/1016642-66.stm

Hampton second-guessing

Players who usually would not say certain things in the locker room sometimes cannot help themselves when they get on a radio show. Such was the case Wednesday night, when nose guard Casey Hampton joined defensive back Deshea Townsend and host Ken Laird on their weekly show on ESPN 1250.

Hampton said he did not like the play call of the pitch to Mewelde Moore on third-and-2 at the Kansas City 35 in overtime Sunday.

"It's unbelievable, man," Hampton said of that play. "We were running the ball ... I'm not a coach, but I just didn't like the play call. But who am I?"

Television cameras showed Hampton wave his hand in disgust on the sideline after the Chiefs broke through on the wide pitch and spilled Moore for a 3-yard loss.

"You get caught up in those moments; I'm not going to apologize for it. It was what it was at the time. And I still don't like it. It didn't work. If it would have worked I would have been right there cheering the way I was mad, so it goes both ways," he said.


Hampton, in the last season of his contract, also said he does not want the Steelers to put the franchise tag on him, even if the price would be $12 million for the 2010 season.

"I don't want that. I don't want that," said Hampton, who said he would not mind playing for Bill Cowher for Hampton's hometown Houston Texans next season -- a reference to speculation about the former Steelers coach's plans.

Nevertheless Hampton said he wants to return to play for the Steelers, and he said they've told him they want him back.

"Ain't no question I want to be here. It's all I know, but, at the same time just as it is a business for them, it's a business for me ...You never know what they're thinking. They tell me they want me here, I believe they want me here, and I want to be here. Hopefully I'll be here next year."

I hated that call too...but we ran 77 other plays, and MOST of those calls were pretty decent. That one play did NOT lose the game and it's lazy to say that it did...

Kind of reminds me of the QB Bootleg called against the Jags in 07.

Gee, I wonder how I knew this story about "internal strife" within the team was written by Ed Bullchitte before I even opened the link?

hmm not saying the guys shouldnt be speaking their minds about things but at the same time i feel like this is stuff that needs to be kept internal instead of going to the media and making bigger issues out of things..

Yeah, what does he know about football. He can just get in line with the rest of the mindless lemmings that hate on the OC.

I understand your philosiphy and usually tend to agree except the toss play didnt even give us a chance for a FG. I think in a game like that Id rather have the chance to win than to put it on the Defense albeit the FG could be missed.

Arians play calling is decent most of the time. My problem is when it fails it fails big and you cannot have that.

We all really care what a defensive lineman has to say about the offensive play calls?
