The Steelers have had their season come to an end, and now the team's owner and president Art Rooney II has come out and made some comments about the state of his team.
Rooney spoke to the associated press earlier this week, and although he is certainly disappointed to not have his team playing in the Superbowl Rooney believes his Pittsburgh Steelers are head in the right direction.
"I do think the direction of the team is a positive one," Rooney said as per the Associated Press.
Although he believes the team is playing well, Rooney admits it's not perfect and there is more work to do.
"On that front, I would say no, we're not satisfied with where we are," Rooney said. "(But) I'm not going to suggest that we need to do something dramatically different."
"We invested some draft picks in some players last year that we certainly hope are going to take a step forward in this coming season and be contributors," Rooney said. "Obviously we've got to look at some opportunities this offseason both in terms of free agency. It's something we have to keep working on."
Rooney isn't just looking to add players from the outside either, he believes the Steelers can make big leaps internally as well.
"We've made some mistakes, there's no denying that in terms of some of the evaluations," Rooney said. "Having said that we still have players in that group we think can improve and that's what we're looking for."
It certainly sounds like the owner has a fair bit of enthiusiam for the upcomming season.
