I’m still not over that loss to Tebow.
Some Steelers stuff we need to discuss.
1. Tyler Grisham was signed by the Denver Broncos and he even tweeted a picture of his contract, saying it was bittersweet:
First, me = sad panda.
Second, you guys, we have found the last typewriter in existence! And here we thought they were extinct.
I bet the NFL still uses rotary phones.
2. Dan Rooney will soon be leaving his Ambassdorship post in Ireland to return to the Steelers in some fashion. But there is no timetable for his return.
3. Bruce Arians’ contract as offensive coordinator was not renewed and the Steelers labeled it a retirement:
Team sources had told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen on Sunday that the Steelers let Arians’ contract expire against the wishes of Roethlisberger. The sources said Steelers president Art Rooney II wants the team to regain its blue-collar identity on offense.
Arians confirmed that Roethlisberger didn’t take the news well. He publicly campaigned to keep Arians after the 2009 season when it looked like the coordinator’s job was in jeopardy.
“He’s not happy, but that’s part of the business,” Arians said, adding that he and Roethlisberger are neighbors.
Bruce Arians is one of those big targets for many Steelers fans when they’re looking for a place to shoot their Arrows of Blame.
The reason the Steelers are seeking a new OC, according to reports, is that Art Rooney wants to go from a pass-first offense to a “blue-collar” run-first offense.
Geeze. We’re giving away all our secrets!
Maybe it’s time for a change in offensive leadership; however, let’s hope The Duke of Fug doesn’t rend his garments, put on the sackcloth, paint his face with ashes and pout about the bitches not taking his shots anymore.
4. Speaking of Benny, he wisely settled the rape lawsuit out of Nevada. This goes against Ben’s initial insistence that he would never settle this lawsuit out of court because of his innocence. Does this turn of events mean he’s guilty?
Not necessarily. I’m guessing he is looking to spare his wife a trial where the details of his sexual escapades, consensual or not, with this woman would be aired for all to hear.
Come on. No one wants to know what Ben calls his peepee.
I’m guessing Benapalooza, though.
