And so it finally ends

The end of the Arians era has finally come to an end. Bruce Arians has decided to “retire”. Fans everywhere, including myself, are ecstatic. The word on the street is the Rooneys forced Arians out, Tomlin (Mr. Do-nothing) seemed to be content with another year of offensive mediocrity, which is exactly what would’ve happened if Arians came back. Maybe we’ll still get that next year but at least there is the chance we won’t.

I’ve slammed Arians enough on here and would like to wish him well in whatever he does next in his life.

Rumors are pointing towards Jim Caldwell (former HC of the Colts) replacing Arians. I really, really hope that doesn’t happen.

I’m guessing it may be QB coach Randy Fichtner, but at this point it’s all speculation. Ideally, I’d like to see a coach that has never been an OC in the NFL, someone that can bring a new and creative vision to the team. Although with an established QB like Ben on the team, that could be a recipe for disaster. In any case, it’ll be very interesting to see who gets hired. Hopefully it’s not an already established and overly safe choice.

In other news, the Steelers continue their love affair with black QB’s as the team signs former Ravens QB Troy Smith today. Just a few days ago the team signed Jarrod Johnson. So let’s keep track here – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, yep, 5 out 6 QB’s on the team right now are black, what are the odds??? In 2010, there were only 14 black QB’s in the ENTIRE NFL! Seriously, this is nuts. Since 2000, the Steelers have drafted or signed one black QB per year on average. I know this is very non-politically correct, but there is definitely something going on here that probably doesn’t go far beyond skin color. Pretty offensive. Just sign the best players, to have other factors come into play is just bush league.

I don’t care about the Rooney Rule, I don’t care if the Rooney’s think black QB’s were unfairly discriminated against for years, I don’t care if Tomlin is a little biased against white guys, JUST SIGN THE BEST PLAYERS. Troy Smith? Jarrod Johnson? Really?
