Pittsburgh Steelers: What Could Happen When Roethlisberger and Rooney Meet

OK, here is what we all know as of now (just in case you have been living under a rock).

Ben Roethlisberger stated that it would be a mistake for the Steelers to fire Bruce Arians because it may hurt the chemistry between the offense.

Bruce Arians retires from the Steelers.

Actually, Arians didn't retire from the Steelers, his contract was up, and the Steelers did not want to renew it.

Arians tells the media that Ben is mad, and that it was not his decision to leave.

Art Rooney II admits that it was his idea that Arians should go, which is why he is gone.

Bruce Arians un-retires, and becomes offensive coordinator of the Indianapolis Colts.

(The issues with Peyton Manning and the Colts owner tower over what is happening in Pittsburgh.)

Ben Roethlisberger states that when he returns from the Pro Bowl, he is going to go to Mr. Rooney's office, and Art can explain to Ben what he expects of the Steelers offense.

The interesting point here is that Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers franchise QB, and the highest paid player in the history of the Pittsburgh Steelers is set to meet with Art Rooney II, to discuss why Bruce Arians was not brought back to Pittsburgh, and what is expected of the offense in the future.

Now, this meeting could go many different ways.

Here is my opinion as to what could happen in the meeting with Ben and Art next week.
