Listen, It's Not You...It's Me...

"You're giving me the 'It's not you, It's me' routine? I invented 'It's not you, it's me'. Nobody tells me it's them not me, If it's anybody, It's me!"
- George Costanza
At the time, it seemed like it could work.

Allen Rossum, a 10 year veteran, former Atlanta Falcons pro bowl return man, and the Steelers, historically one of the most worthless Special Teams units in the league. Maybe Rossum could turn both his career and the Steelers "Special" Teams around and be just what the Doctor ordered...

But alas, it never really did work out for either of us, did it?

Look Allen, it's not you, it's us. We just need to move on. You were a great rebound girl, but we're looking for a bride. Sorry buddy, it just wasn't meant to be. You'll find somewhere else that will make you very happy. Don't worry. Now if you don't mind, could you please vacate the premises? We need your parking spot for Jeff Reed's ego...thanks.

Oh, and yes - fellow Special Teamer Clint Kriewaldt and 8th Tight End Jerame Tuman were also let go yesterday. One can only hope we're not clearing the roster so that we can go after another tight end in the draft. Although, I think that would come pretty close to qualifying as a league record...or something...

Enjoy your weekends Steeler fans...now where's my beer bong?

yeah, we all know what "it's not you, it's me" really means.

It's not me, it's YOU!

I love your witty and very sarcastic perspective...very enjoyable.

In the words of the inimitable Leon Black - that's how I do's it Dave. That's how I do's it.

I make my living in wit and sarcasm...well actually I don't make any money for it. But if I did that'd be pretty cool.

Thanks for the comment!
