    Wasn’t expecting Sarrett but I’m glad, line was awful. He’s certainly no Munch.

    Honestly, I don't know. I just think the offense needs a completely new look.
    I don't like anyone attached to the shotgun handoff they ran over and over with a zero percent success rate.
    I liked some of the motion plays they ran earlier in the year, if that was Canada's doing. The short yardage fullback dive they ran against the Browns looked like something too(the first time they ran it, running it on back to back drives was asinine).

    I think if they go outside the organization and don't go with Canada, I think it signals that they are moving on from Ben.

    I just can't see Ben and a new guy together for one season.

    The motion plays were Canadas influence. There was an article, maybe by Kaboly or one of those guys that for some reason they got away from the things Canada was injections into the offense. Maybe Ficht or Ben didn’t like it but the offense was running better when they were using that stuff.

    I thought I remembered reading about those motion plays being his idea, or someone mentioned it in one of the GTD's.
    I'll look for the article you mentioned.
    Finally, something positive to think about. (Steelers-wise anyway).

    Dotson thanks the fans.

    With him and Banner on the line next year, plus DD, I don’t think it’s as dire as some think. Have to find a good center though.

    Matt Canada's offense is 100% different than we seen.

    He was tops on my list. That guy never came off a coach despite being Munch's assistant.

    As we are today, could this be the line: T Banner/Okafur G Dotson/Decastro C Hassenour?

    I think Decastro returns to form if Canada becomes OC.

    I wouldn't mind Canada but I hope the Steelers don't settle. There's some interesting candidates out there. Imagine if we could land Jim Caldwell or Chiefs QB coach Kafka?

    With the offseason officially underway the roster moves have already begun.

    On Monday the Steelers signed 13 players to Reserve/Future contracts. Most of them were already on the team's practice squad, 11 in total, including tight end Kevin Rader, who had been elevated from the practice squad to the Active/Inactive roster for the regular season finale against the Browns and the Wild Card Round game.

    Others signed include: wide receiver Anthony Johnson, wide receiver Cody White, offensive tackle Anthony Coyle, offensive tackle Brandon Walton, safety John Battle, linebacker Tegray Scales, defensive tackle Demarcus Christmas, defensive end Calvin Taylor, punter Corliss Waitman, long snapper Christian Kuntz, offensive tackle John Leglue and cornerback Trevor Williams.

    Damn it, this one bothers me. Defense was noticeably better after they brought Austin in.

    So why is Butler staying when Tomlin had his replacement queued up? Think Art Rooney nix it. Austin probable thought he had it bagged and oops Kieth gets a stay.

    Does Randy being gone influence Ben to come back or not?

    I think they should move on from Ben. I think Ben should want to move on as well, given what he will have to work with next year. He has nothing left to prove and will be getting knocked around on a team that will not sniff the playoffs. From the Steelers side, they need Ben to retire to see what they have with Rudolph.

    To answer your question, I think the Steelers are saying if you come back, you will work with who we hire or you can choose to walk. Or, the Steelers might just have the Troy Polamalu chat with him.

    Don’t know. Not like they haven’t let go of coordinators that came off good seasons, Haley, Arians.

    If Tomlin is calling the defense and Austin was assistant DC coach, what the heck does Butler do.
