Hey Ben, I'll tell you where the Offense is going. NOWHERE!!!!! We're sitting home aren't we? Just shut up and play. It's not just all about you

Did any of you bother _READING_ the article? Or are you too busy trying to find reasons to badmouth Big Ben? What he said was that he wanted to know what Rooney wants from the Offense. And for that, he needs to shut up? Its a legitimate concern - his OC is gone. So presumably, the offense WILL go in a new direction.. As a QB, he should be concerned - and he should probably be curious about which direction the offense is headed. Which is what he said.

The fact that they descided to give the article the spin of him "wanting an answer", implies he somehow is demanding an answer regarding why Arians was let go. Thats the WRITERs spin on it. Ben said no such thing. In no way was he out of line here.

Shows you again how much respect and control over the team Tomlin has.
It's not, "I'm going to sit down with coach Tomlin...., " or "Coach and I are going to talk with Mr. Rooney."

Hey, "newsflash" Ben, the "lyrics" of that song are about to change for you.
Rooney's ANSWER: "...Here's your new (OC)Boss, and it WILL NOT Be The same as your old (OC)Boss...!!!"
:)
And that's comin from way up top. -'ya know, the one that pays you, invested in you,..., your employer.
So, I like Ben's attitude to this "change", but, maybe it hasn't quite sunk into him yet. You can't candy-ass it, this time.
However, there will definitely be some changes bud.
In other words, our "O" has sucked, somewhat, in comparison to our "D". !
- That's the only thing YOU need to worry about.
I'll save you the trip to "... asking Rooney." ?
Now, just shut your yap, and stay in great shape -health-wise, practice, work-out, practice, work-out...., so, there's your answer from Rooney, AND Tomlin, until THEY gets YOU a replacement OC, that SUITS the Steelers' as a whole, NOT just YOU, Ben. -not ever again.

BR seriously thinks he's going to challenge the owner? Not a smart career move. 5 years from now the Rooneys will still own the Steelers, and BR will be in some phase of retirement, (possibly playing for one of those teams that loves to pay washed up players to live the delusion that they still have something, but even those teams are becoming rare).

Hopefully Rooney will remember that he is speaking to a child in an adult body, and explain to BR that he will start learning the direction of the offense when he sees the new playbook and starts hearing a new voice in his helmet, and that the guy who knew so little about football that he actually consulted with in idiot like Ben no longer works for the Steelers, or any other football team on the planet, but has sent his resume to every organization that even has pictures of footballs hanging on their walls. If Rooney forgets that he is speaking to a child in an adult body, it could get very ugly.

Yeah, but by this point in his career Terry had learned something, yet could back up what his mouth used to be saying, BR, not so much on either count.

if Tomlin had control Ben would be going to Tomlin and not the owner.

Tomlin should be going to Ben and telling him himself what the issues are.

If Tomlin does not know the issues then Colbert should explain them to him.

If Cobert does not know the issues then Rooney should explain them to Colbert


the chain of command seems to be out of whack

Yep,
and you're right, The so-called "chain of command" definitely needs to be fixed finally, and if need be, "Full Metal Jacket" !
..., soooo, truly, welcome to "Coaching" in the NFL, Mike ?

the trouble is with Tomlin wanting to keep Arians I don't believe Tomlin realizes there is a problem.

Ben and Arians are just 2 of Tomlin's many buddies.

Yeah, most people are taking that quote WAY, way, way wrong. I like the fact that he said that.
Sounds like he's being a total team guy. This is what our owner wants, i want to be involved and a main part of it.........what do i do? What do you want me to do? Lets talk and all be on the same page.
I'd do EXACTLY the same thing. He's doing the right thing.
