We've been kind of spoiled for awhile by this team.
this is exactly how I feel. I am not to happy about having a franchise QB in his prime and because the Rooney's are the Rooney's they got him no help and actually made the team worse then last year.
Normally, i wouldn't give this any thought but Mark Madden keeps saying he has it on good authority that Haley is so rough to work with that players and coaches are like rats abandoning a sinking ship. The reason this gives me pause is because of Haley's track record. Everyone seems to hate this guy wherever he goes.
As for things that aren't based in rumors, i can't stand the way this team is being run. I get that the Steelers have to be bad now, but it should have never come to this. They keep signing guys who are old or local but they let all their good, young players walk. Just doesn't make sense. Maybe these players don't wanna sign and the Steelers are trying and they are just saying no but it really does seem, from the surface anyways, that the Steelers have no intention of giving what their franchise QB needs to succeed.
-Really don't like the last couple of Drafts
-Really don't like the coach. Speaks in empty cliches all day long. Might as well not even speak.
-Really don't like attitude of the team. More clowns in that locker room than good guys who know how to win.
-Really don't like restructuring contracts endlessly and refusing to just accept reality and rebuild completely.
