20 plus years of the same scheme it's just time to move on, like we did with BA last year,DL WAS great but now it's time to turn the page and bring in some new fresh blood,we need simple schemes so we can get our young talent on the field sooner, it's not personal with DL it's business and it's time to move on

I have tremendous respect for Dick LeBeau, however in saying that I also agree that it's time to move forward. I only say this because a team has the tendency to play to the vibe that is set by the coach.
I think they look at Grandpa Dick as the old pipe smoking grandfather reading bed time stories by the fireplace. The veterans have grown accustom to a very comfortable surrounding with Grandpa Dick as they sit wide eyed at the base of his rocking chair in their pajamas with a nice hot cup of hot chocolate.
While I may be embellishing somewhat to establish a point, I don't think Dick relates to the young kids on the same level that he was able to with the Cowher era veterans.
A new vibe/work ethic of strength, speed, and sheer violence needs to be re-established with the new kids.
