That's not up to Haley though, and probably not even up to Tomlin. Does anyone feel confident that management is willing to change its philosophies after an 8-8 season? The Steelers have tempted fate playing that style and have gotten away with it, this year it caught up to them.

You are aware that the ownership of the team is not likely to ever change significantly. There's always room on the Cryboys bandwagon, and Goodell is always happy to welcome fans to the team that the NFL used to own, but now owns the NFL, maybe you would prefer their ownership better. Actually, the Deadskins management seems a better fit for your type of winning attitude.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms reports that Andy Reid is close to becoming the Cardinals' next coach, with one source putting the odds at "95 percent."

Then ownership has to determine which is more important - being right or winning.

They are in the process of doing both, and fortunately, they are not even slightly aware of your loathing of them, or of your opinion.

Really? 8-8 is winning? They did it the way Artie wanted them to.

Don't bitch when the offense doesn't put up points if this is your stance.

This is yinzer nation in the offseason:

"Ben don't gotta throw da ball more den 20 times! Gotta run da ball! Gotta rest da defense! Da stillerz dun't need ta score more points cuz da stiller defense will be well-rested!"

This is yinzer nation after a close loss:

"BEN WHY DIDN'T YINZ DO MORE! YINZ STINK! YINZ GOTTA SCORE MORE POINTS! BOOOOOOOOO!"

Don't demand the offense play ball-control and then go on demanding more points. Want more points? Gotta make some quick strikes and not worry about protecting the defense all the time.
And Ben has to connect on the long play. There were drops but a lot he missed.

Another thing about trashing these coordinators. Why would we want them here if they suck as a HC? It's ridiculous, if they all had great records, they wouldn't be looking for work.

No, Art wants them to run more effectively, and play solid football, which you oppose at every opportunity. 8-8 is Tomlin ball, and hopefully they are noticing the direction the team is heading under him.
