Steelers linebacker James Farrior said something the other day that clearly agitated defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.

"I hope we're not running him off by the way we're playing."

You know, to retirement.

"I would hate to see him go out like this," Farrior said, shaking his head.

LeBeau didn't want to hear it.

"The last thing I want the players to think is that I'm going to turn tail and run away just because the going gets a little rough," he said. "We preach all the time about sticking together and fighting through adversity. How would it look if I walked away now? I'm not going to run away from those guys. I'm going to stay right here and fight with them."

I cursed LeBeau a lot this year but the simple fact is,when you look at the players he had to work with....well the results speak for themselves.

I'm glad he's staying.

Will Tomlin allow him to stay is the question! He's a great DC and is loved in Steeltown, but does anyone see Tomlin taking over the calls on D???

I hope so, but I feel a big ole house cleaning will take place at the end of the season!

LeBeau is not the problem! He is a true leader and this article proves that!

huge mistake to even think about letting Coach LeBeau go,however,the OC and ST coachs are another matter !

LeBeau is arguably the most feared DC in the league. This year hasn't exactly been as impressive as last year's, but I have never doubted the man.

I wouldn't mind seeing him extend his contract till he decides he no longer wants to, or.. well.. I don't want to even speak of such of thing but you can assume what the other option is.

Long Live LeBeau!
