Pump and Dump by Whiz? Okobi not the player he thought he was? I think it's both.

Whiz played every angle he could to beat the Steelers and he played those angles well.

I guess he wasn't the six million dollar man, as reflected in 2004 contract.

Whiz and Grimm were also here when the guy never stepped up to the plate to replace an aging Jeff Harting. Whiz and Grimm were also paying attention when this team needed a center and instead of 'expecting' Okobi, this organization went out and signed Mahan. Then, Okobi went to Arizona I believe he was the 3rd option at center (behind Johnson and Hodel). The guy was not even considered a second string center in Arizona.

This decision was inevitable if you ask me, so no I'm not surprised.

Also, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to learn that they signed Okobi for one reason and one reason only...........9/30/07.

Not only did they have our old offensive line coach but they had someone to tell them about the new offensive line formations

i'm not sure if you got my point or not....but anyhow i was getting at.....whiz and grimm had years to evaluate okolbi and decide if he's starting material. okolbi gets a new fat contract WHILE whiz and grimm are still here. don't you think if whiz,and grimm DIDN'T , think okolbi was the center of the future, they would have let someone know thier opinion on resigning the bum? but yet he gets the contract which lead everyone to believe the position was secure after hartings pending retirement. do you think they had no say in personel decisions? did cowher and the FO disreguard thier opinions on players? okolbi himself even said if tomlin hadn't gottin the job he'd still be in pittsburgh.

Boy, Whiz really sought every advantage he could find to beat his old team.

-Buttering up the players and coaching staff before the game.
-Playing head games with Ben in the Media.
-Tricking Arians into playing Cowher Ball.
-Now hiring Okobi off the streets and pump him full of info.
