Dan Rooney, longtime owner of the historically successful Pittsburgh Steelers, took the time to respond to Project Mayhem Task #7: WhoDey Revolution's letter to NFL Commish Roger Goodell asking him to intervene to force the Bengals ownership to stop taking advantage of the NFL's generous revenue sharing and work to field a competitive team.
Rooney, whose team has beaten the Bengals 8 times in the last 10 games and 10 of the last 14, seems to think that the "Bengals do everything the can to be a successful team." Really? Everything they can? Like having the smallest scouting department in the NFL? The Steelers have 11 full time player personnel staff - the Bengals have 3. Or being the team furthest North without an indoor training facility? Or undercutting your coaches authority by signing the exact troubled player they publicly stated they don't want back on the team?
So, sorry Mr. Rooney, the Bengals are certainly not doing "everything they can" to be successful. If things don't change, Mr. Rooney, your Steelers can expect two more easy wins a year.
