DISCLAIMER: In no way is the following post meant to discredit the work of any current Steelers Coach. Except Larry Zierling. And possibly Bob Ligashesky in some way, but I haven't quite put my finger on it yet. Anyway, you know what I mean.Dear Russ Grimm,
This Offensive line was awful on Sunday. They couldn't block. They couldn't get any push. Hell, they couldn't even stay still until the ball was snapped. I think what I'm trying to say is - we miss you, Russ.
When you were here, we didn't have nearly this big of a problem protecting Big Ben. And we know that wasn't just Alan Faneca (two words: Jeff. Hartings.) These guys, now, all they get is coddled. Yet, they continually suck and put the health of our $100 million man in jeopardy.
And Larry Zierling sucks. The best thing he's done so far was send a naughty email to the whole league. I don't even know who he is, man. You never hear about him, you never hear from him. You never even see him. I'm starting to think he's just some mythical whipping boy Tomlin and Arians made up. Either way, he clearly doesn't have the ability to ride herd like you do.
One of my favorite parts of the Super Bowl XL DVD was when you were yelling at those assholes, saying...
"We screwed up like three in a row. You screwed up the 39. We screwed up the dual read. Let's go! We gotta go! It ain't nothin' they're doin', it's us. Come on. Let's get it done."I mean, these guys don't need to be baby'd. They're professionals. And as far as I know, professionals don't get praised for being worthless.
We miss your wisdom. We miss your tutelage. We miss your thick Pittsburgher accent. And your excellent mustache. Come back to us, Russ. We sure could use you.
