"...Al Davis stepped in dog crap years ago and is still leaving a trail, but it could be worse. He could be the guy running the Steelers.

The Steelers, who had it easy for decades thanks to Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher, had to do some heavy lifting this offseason after Cowher resigned ... but instead got choked beneath the bench-press bar.

Pittsburgh had two quality candidates on staff in Russ Grimm and Ken Whisenhunt, but dragged out the process long enough to lose Whisenhunt to the Arizona Cardinals, become infatuated with unlovable Chan Gailey, and emasculate Grimm.

After coming to their senses and jettisoning Gailey back to Georgia Tech, the Steelers narrowed their search to Grimm, Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera and Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin.

From there Pittsburgh got down to Grimm and Tomlin, and let Grimm believe the job was his. Grimm told his family. Someone told a reporter from a Pittsburgh newspaper. The story got out: Grimm was about to be hired.

Oops.

Tomlin got hired. Grimm got destroyed. The Steelers are the only NFL team this offseason to make a minority their new coach, and whatever goodwill that might have earned was lost in the mishandling of Russ Grimm.

But it could be worse. The Steelers could be the Dolphins."

I trust that the Rooney's and the Steelers FO hired the best man for the job. They seem to have a real knack for selecting great, HOF coaches. I really wouldn't count the Steelers out next year.

Are they going to give Culpepper a reconstructed brain along with his reconstructed knee?

He needs both equally.

As for Ricky, it won't be long before he screws up again, and is back playing for the Argos in the CFL. He's probably loving Canada actually.

I know I'd love to toke up as much as I wanted, and not worry about being suspended off the team.

Some new thing that you get for posting, you can bet 'em on Vbookie, donate em to B-Lo so he can get a tutor....

How do you think your steelers will do this year? I'm totally clueless right now about how the Fins will look.

Whatever. Ricky is coming back for sure (in the NFL reinstates him) and whatever you think about Harrington, Culpepper is better than him. That's not sayin much but it's just how bad we had it in 06. Just not having Joey out there is addition by subtraction.

Not from what I saw this past season.

Wasn't he the QB for Miami's late run at the end of the season?

Our running game and our Defense won those games .

Shouldn't mess with success then.

As proven before, teams can win with a stiff defense and a solid running game. Also, you have a good TE with McMichael, which helps move the chains.

I think you guys have a solid core there to continue to build that offense.

Just my opinion though.

Yeah dude if anything we won those games in spite of Joey. Joey is freaking horrible. Culpepper on one leg had like 1.5 more yards per attempt, a better TD/INT ratio, and a better QB rating. Hell you saw him when you shut us out. When we put in Cleo we finally started moving the ball on you guys...and don't say you guys played soft because you know the Bills wanted that shutout bad.

The Bills are way better than us, for now. We only scored 6 points against them in two games versus their 37 points against us.

We'll get back at them though. :wink:

Not soft, but probably not as hard as the previous 3.85 quarters of the game.
