    Did you love 8-8 too?

    If Art fires Tomlin Haley will be the next head coach.

    What fun THAT will be.

    He also did a sit down interview with KDKA with ONE stipulation: No questions on who fired Bruce Arians.

    If he didn't do it, why avoid the question?
    Actually, that's a Steeler trademark: avoiding accountability. On any decision where there could be a little heat, they never tip their hand on who made what decision. I find that cowardly, but the media in Pgh plays along, because if they don't, they lose their perks such as tickets and parties and parking, etc. Pretty pathetic that the Rooneys operate in this manner, but there is no question they do. Do you remember when the Cowher affair with his assistant story was out there? Rooneys forbid any of the sports media to allow any discussion on it. If a caller brought it up, they were to hang up on them. So lame.

    Woaaaaaaaaaaaa, woaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, woaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, Kemosabe. The Rooneys absolutely force their head coach to fire people, without any question. They even did it to Chuck Noll, the emperor of 4 rings. If they would do it to Chuck, they most certainly would do it to Tomlin. Come on, now.

    They wanted Noll to return in 1992 with one stipulation: Joe Walton was to be fired.

    Noll decided to retire instead.

    That is true, but I agree with the Rooneys and history has proven that they were right to force Walton to be fired: He was a horrid, horrid coach, both as OC and head coach. Just terrible. Noll was a moron for wanting him back. Rooneys were right.

    How can Walton be blamed for everything when his offense was designed for Eric Green and then he was a late signing in 1990?

    And then the deal the Steelers finally agreed to was the same deal Green's agent offered 2 weeks after the draft.

    Can't blame Walton for that.

    You mean the Steelers hinged their entire season on one player, a rookie at that? And a TE at that? Yea, that sounds really plausible. And, if Walton was a good coach, how did his offense do when he was with the Jets? Did Eric Greene get the blame for that too? So, Walton's failures can all be attributed to Greene signing late? You are a joke.

    He had mixed results in New York. Some good years and some bad seasons.

    Bottom line, in PITTSBURGH, his offense was designed for Green. And the FO didn't pay him what he wanted.

    The 1990 Steelers started 1-3.

    Green's role expanded starting game #5 with the Chargers, and they finished the year on a 8-4 run.

    Mixed? 2 winning seasons, 5 losing seasons. Super.
