Walker's morning take: Steelers fans upset if Rooneys sold team


Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

 Here is a look at the interesting stories around the AFC North:

Walker's take: This article is dead on. People are naturally resistant to change, and the Rooneys have spoiled the city of Pittsburgh for generations by being the most stable ownership group in NFL history. A complete sale to anyone would be a punch in the stomach to Steelers fans. Plus, there would be lingering concerns of a new owner that's less committed to the city and could move at any point.

Walker's take: If you can't beat 'em, buy 'em.

Walker's take: Those are good choices. But I was thinking more on the lines of "Elvis" and "Grbac."

Walker's take: The kick-a-man-while-he's-retiring-tour continues for Dilfer, but the list was pretty comprehensive. The only real shock was that Eli Manning of the New York Giants, the most recent Super Bowl winning quarterback, was right behind Dilfer at No. 3 on Greenberg's list. Wow.
