    Highlights:

    Ben extension
    Not committing to giving Tomlin a contract extension

    He was not happy with the way the season ended stating everyone needs to do better including Tomlin.

    Theses are the positives I heard. I feel he put Tomlin on notice behind the scenes to turn it around or be gone. You ride with the coaches you retained. Get it done.

    Also said the season was not a Circus. That was wrong.

    Is upset that Brown hasn't a least reached out.

    The Rooneys are a huge reason I'm a Steeler fan. Art's very level headed like the rest and doesn't make knee jerk reactions. He does try to accommodate all his coaching staff and players, and he doesn't settle for having a team missing the playoffs.

    So yeah Tomlin's reign as HC could be up if he doesn't turn this around. I bet Art's looking for new blood to work with the team post Ben. An idea.

    I don’t like Tim Benz, but can’t disagree with anything he said there.

    I am proud the Rooney's are the owners. I'm sure I'll take some heat from this but I'm ready to move on from Ben. I'm convinced he no longer can take us where we want to go but he can stay for two more years hopefully tanking it in year 2 so we can draft that good old boy under center at Clemson.

    I'm a little concerned he doesn't think this coaching staff is a crapshow and somehow not out of control

    No doubt in my mind he is the real deal and the Clemson Tigers will be winning another Natl. Championship. Now watch me get my wish and he turns into a dud.

    I bet when Tomlin gets fired either after next year or when his contract is up he'll do an interview talking about how he wished he handled things differently in Pittsburgh

    Despite what this city has built them up to be, the Rooney's as owners are nothing special. Hell they didn't even want to pay to build new seats in the stadium they play in and taxpayers built for them.

    Patriots/Belichick/Kraft will get the Clemson QB after Brady retires. Wait and see. And then it's 4 more Patriots Super Bowls in the 2020's. We are in hell.

    Thankfully we have a newer stadium because I don't see this ownership paying to build one, and with the political climate the way it is these days, taxpayers won't kick in much at all. We could be in serious jeopardy of losing our franchise when the time comes for a new stadium

    The Steelers are almost 20 years in Heinz Field so it's not as new as it used to be.

    Not impressed. He needs to let Tomlin go now. We don’t have time for that bs to wait for him , he’s had his time move on. Show some urgency and lay the hammer down numb nuts

    I heard we aren’t hiring a replay review specialist.

    Really disappointed.

    Art said he wouldn't hire a person just for replay, he said they would have to have other duties, or it could be somebody already on staff.
