If you have had to deal with this, one knows that there is a point where you have to tell a friend that is knocking his/her ex to stop because they look silly. The worse case scenario is that your friend is miserable and the ex is having a ball. It may hurt them a bit to do it but they should just wish them well, especially if they are the one who kicked the ex to the curb.
A significant part of Steeler Nation is at "that point" now. The Colts / Ravens game may push many of them beyond intervention. It’s the Ravens for Gods sake. Only in some bizarre and painful playoff scenario would cheering for the Ravens be condoned. (Side note: never lose respect for the Ravens. If you do it is not truly fun to beat them). Boo Ravens but yea pride.
Dumping on Arians and/or Wallace makes you look small a pitiful. Tearing them down does not build Steeler Nation up. It makes it look pathetic. Arians can’t coach? Wallace is a bum? Players and personnel that have passed though and given their best should be treated as ambassadors to the NFL to what is great about being part of the organization. When Tony Dungy is talked about his time with the Steelers comes up too. Rod Woodson got a ring with the Ravens but he is a Steeler. Dungy refused a demotion and Woodson was not re-signed. They left as future ambassadors not trash. My hope is that any loses of players and or personnel this offseason aids building on Steeler Nations’ Legacy if a determined few hold back on tearing the possible building blocks down.
