    Hasn't Marsha proven that players win SBs not the sideline sideshow?

    Like? As a man of course...Great Guy, seems very intelligent, and the players love him!

    As a Steeler Fan though, I'm a bottom line kinda guy...I don't think he's a good Coach...And I think he has cost us games by not being one, and that we could do better...

    Quite frankly him being liked is far down the pecking order imo...

    Wallace and several other players have said this now. While I know he is out of work, but it is ironic that even Le Veon Bell is saying he would not be opposed to a second stint in Pittsburgh. He just thought he was going to set the world on fire wherever he went and now realizing he hasn't been anything that special since he left Pittsburgh. Of course his ego will not let him say anything else like "I was wrong."

    In the last decade the Steelers average .3 playoff wins a year. Less than 1 playoff win every 3 years.

    You didn’t miss much. Just Disco arguing with himself and SteelReal hurling insults due to his severe insecurities.

    *bump*

    This is why players like the Steelers organization and why the Rooney's are in a class by themselves.

    Today's asked and answered by Bob Labriola.

    GRAHAM ANDERSON FROM PLYMOUTH, UK: Could you please remind us of the story where the Steelers forfeited a draft pick because Mr. Dan Rooney had made an agreement with a player that turned out to be against the rules?

    ANSWER: The player's name was Will Wolford, and the Steelers signed him as an unrestricted free agent during the 1996 offseason. Wolford had been a left tackle during his career with Buffalo and then Indianapolis, but the Steelers told him they were signing him to play guard, which meant a lesser rate. Dan Rooney told Wolford that if the team needed him to play left tackle there would be a salary "adjustment" that came along with it. In 1998, the Steelers needed Wolford at left tackle, and so Dan Rooney prepared to pay the bonus that was part of the verbal agreement he had with Wolford. The NFL informed Dan Rooney that if he paid Wolford the bonus, the Steelers would be punished with the loss of a draft pick, But Rooney told the NFL that he had given the player his word and that his word was more important to him than a draft pick. Rooney paid Wolford, and the NFL punished the Steelers by having them forfeit their third-round pick in the 2001 NFL Draft.

    Never heard that story. 3rd rd pick seems pretty harsh for that.

    Doesn’t surprise me Rooney would keep his word.

    One of the interesting parts of it is that they could have waited and paid him later and not been fined a draft pick but again Dan Rooney had given his word and keeping it was more important than finding ways to skirt the rules and not get fined.

    Mike Vrabel and Emmanuel Sanders say otherwise. Both of these players did well when they left Pittsburgh, to say the least.
