Default Art Rooney II - Tough free agency decisions for Steelers familiar

Remain calm...



Rooney said the Steelers situation heading into the 2013 season is no more dire than past seasons.

"I don't view it as dramatically different than other years," Rooney said. "The recent history is, we face decisions like this almost every year in terms of making decisions on players who made key contributions. I always say, every year is a new jigsaw puzzle and you have to put together the pieces the best way you can and shaping contracts is a big part of that.

"You have to have players with contracts who fit within the system. It's a challenge every year. Sometimes you have to make decision on players like we had the last couple years that are not fun decisions."

"We're at that stage [where] it's just begun and we woill continue to look for opportunities to improve our roster," Rooney said. "That's where we are. We'll be looking at opportunities, to extent there are some, to add players to the roster that make sense. Wherever we can improve we'll try to do so."

His color doesn't look good.

I personally think that Rooney II is full of shit but at least he's consistent.

He stated that they got rid of the folks who doesn't fit the system. Haley's dink and dunk is here to stay on the offensive side, so they have let go those who doesn't fit. On the defensive side Harrison and Lewis didn't fit that system either.

I hope we field a team that can compete with some of the scoring offenses that others are putting together. We've lost quite a few of our playmakers on both sides of the ball.

Maybe it's time he realizes those systems don't work.

Of course he should also realize bad things happen when NFL owners meddle with their teams.

Art Rooney wanted Dan Marino, and Dan Rooney forced Bill Cowher to take BB (when Cowher wanted to draft Shawn Andrews instead).

Meddling... indeed.

But, hey, if you like Mark Malone better than Dan Marino AND Tommy Maddox better than BB, that is entirely your opinion...
...with both "your" and "opinion" being the operative words.
