    Expect the same team next year.

    At this point, I think we're all a little bit shocked or angry. Many of us are calling for changes including me. But do you honestly expect anything to change? I don't expect our FO to go out and get any free agents this year. Ben is begging to keep BA for another season...again, and they dont wanna dissapoint their star QB. My guess is that Lebeau will have the choice left up to him on whether or not to step down, so I expect him back also. I expect the same old team with a few minor changes regarding some of the older players but expect the same team and coaching staff next year unless someone in the FO decides that enough is enough.

    It will be hard, even after several months, to get excited if we have the same coaching staff!
    Who will be Todd Haley's first victim on national TV ...... and when?

    It's hard to say expect the same next year when we don't know what the draft will look like, if the coaching staff will change, if some of the older players will retire (or be let go.) If we'll sustain the same extent of injuries next year and so on.

    Let's climb off the ledge and just enjoy the rest of the post season while rooting for the Pats and Rats to lose.

    I think there will be some changes to the defense and the offensive line. Guys on defense such as Smith,Hampton,Farrior just to name a few need to be let go, and this offensive line needs improved a great deal and it needs to fix some of these problems through free agency.

    Arians cannot come back. LeBeau was not good yesterday, but I'll take him for another year or so. RELEVANT Players wise, look for Hines, Farrior, Smith, Batch, Hamp, Foote, McFadden, Suisham to be gone.

    maybe the rooneys and/or tomlin will finally sack up and tell ben that he doesn't call the shots, they do. he is an employee of the steelers and is compensated very well, and if they want to fire arians, then ben should shut his pie hole and except whomever is the next OC they hire.

    bottom line, is, the sound that was heard after the game was the window slamming shut. the FO has to realize that this isn't the team, players and coaches, that's gonna get back to the 2008-09 level. and that window is not gonna open unless drastic changes are made, namely the OC.

    I was just thinking the same thing, change is good and we need it, on both sides of the ball,i'll still root for my Steelers, but i'll be extremely dissapointed if the same staff is back next season...

    I think PB only brought Arians back this year because of the lockout. Putting in a new offense in the short time they had would have been difficult. Tomlin acknowledged today in his press conference that change could be coming but continuity would be the goal.

    I hope BA is done as I have never, ever cared for him. He was not even good enough for Cleveland.
