Default With the "Retiring" of Bruce Arians????

First let me clarify, I think Bruce was told either retire or be fired, he took the latter. I also believe that Tomlin is on notice, with that being said, with Arians gone, what are the chances that Wallace remains a Steeler???

I honestly don't think that it affects it. It all depends if the Rooneys want to fork over the money or not.

Tomlin is not "on notice". He's highly respected both here and league-wide (whether you personally like him or not).

Although none of us were in the room, it appears that it was highly recommended that Arians step from his post.....straight from the big guy at the top. Even though Tomlin likes continuity, i'm sure he's completely on board with the change.
I do believe we will go with a coordinator who will try and spread the offense more and throw just as much, if not more and they would like Wallace to stay. But it will have more to do with dollars and cents than with anything Arians-related.

It'll be interesting, that's for sure.

I hope Tomlin is on notice. He should be. He hasn't shown one once of concern with actually winning football games. The only top level coach on the team who has since Cowher left is LeBeau, and we know he is not a good HC. Tomlin seems to be an opportunist--he will take a win if it is handed to him on a plate, but lacks the desire to actually make it happen himself. He also seems to be a status quo kind of person, not just "if it aint broke don't fix it," but "it it's broke but no one seems to mind, don't fix it." Well, those of us buying tickets and watching the advertising do mind, so it's time to get someone in the coaching spot who not only doesn't mind it being fixed, but will take action to be part of the fix, and I don't think Tomlin is that guy. It would be nice if I wrong though.

Art Rooney II is a junk yard dog. Other then having the same respect and class as the chief and Dan, Art II is a little more Don like. I've always liked Art II, I just like his presence. Always looks in control, suits always tight and always says firm and clear interviews.

Normally the Rooney's let the head coach run their teams and coaches, however, there are execptions like when you are paying your franchise QB 102 million and he can not stay healthy.

Steelers need a offensive coordinator to simplify things. Number one, keep ben healthy, number two, use your weapons, and have some damn creativity in the red zone. I wanted to shoot myself with Arians 50 bubbles screens in the red zone that never worked.

`I believe Tomlin is "on notice" a SB loss, followed by a one and done playoff run, (to a team that shouldn't have even been in the Steelers league) I believe he has been told changes need to be made (purely my speculation) and it started with Arians. I think the change has to come with the offense, the lack of a running game is not Steeler football, so yes I think Tomlin sees the writing on the wall and he has been put "on notice"!

Guess that explained Cowher's stubborn insistence on sticking with Kordell Stewart as "his guy" at QB for five seasons, with two of those seasons ending up on the wrong side of .500 and three in total being non-playoff seasons; his overwhelming desire to win. Ridiculous.

Donahoe, (the guy who replaced Woodson with Chad Scott), was the GM at the time. Who did Cowher have to replace Kordell with? Kent Graham? He tried starting him, and he was worse than Kordell. So Cowher's "stubborn" insistence was actually Donahoe's.

I have a hunch that a Head Coach that's made the Super Bowl 2 out of 5 years isn't "on notice"
