Arm Chair.

If we're going by those 2 options then I'm definitely an arm chair. I've always been that way. I trust the Rooney's, their track record is amazing but I question the coaches more and the front office with draft picks that don't pan out or systems that aren't always working the way they used too.

I bleed Black and Gold but I can also tell you, unlike a homer, where the Steelers are weak. I can look at a season and the competition and see the Steelers having to get some good fortune to win the division. And sometimes I see no reason why we should lose a game. It seldom works out the way I see it but then again, the best prognosticators in the world do well to get it right half the time:lol:

I used to be a competitive golfer and a golf philosopher once said that "golf is 90% mental and when you get that figured out you'll have half the game licked".

It's like that!

I would say more of a homer for sure.

It's sort of like the stock market though. Mostly I leave that up to the professionals who spend 60 or 70 hours a week studying that. But there's still a small bit of money I use to choose the company. I like to do it because it's fun.

These people are in the business for a reason. Sure I feel differently about decisions because I've done some research on the draft, play schemes etc. but this their job, the FO and staff have been successful for years, and have been around the game all their lives. Hindsight is 20/20 so of course our opinions seems better than theirs, but any fool should be able to admit they don't know as much as the FO

Another poll thread. Im a homer. I dont always think the FO does the right thing but I think they know more than we do. I as a fan can tell where the team needs help and maybe who they can think of going after. Im not going to go against the FO. The team is just going through a little transition right now but should be fine within the next year if we can "stay healthy"

I think I'm in my own category.......lol I have players that I will always support and never be to critical....Then I have players that I just flat out don't like and will always bash them.....lol

Neither of those two suit me. I don't accept everything they do, and I don't think everything I say is always right. I do, however, have different opinions on how things should operate. For example, getting the young guys playing time (Heyward should see 50% of the plays; 25% from Ziggy, 25% from Brett). Going after strategic free agents (e.g., Farrior and Clark). Roster management (I would have cut Hampton this past off season, but otherwise I thought they did a good job releasing the older players). Things like that.

We need an option 3 I think as well, I'm somewhere in the middle similar to Nolrog. If I had to choose one of those though I'd definitely be an arm chair.

I wouldn't classify myself as an arm chair GM, but would classify myself as an arm chair OC and DC. From an X's and O's perspective, I second guess play calls and defensive calls.
