Hire Whisenhunt
 
I'm not sold on Haley. He made a mess of a good offense this year. R/B and W/R's became head cases this year. They either felt too much pressure to perform, or didn't prepare well for games. Rothliesburger has scars on his tongue from after game interviews. He is not sold either... The offense never ran better than under Whisenhunt. :tt04::tt02:

LOL. He's done a bang-up job so far in Arizona, right? Going 4-0 and then dropping 11 of the next 12 games? I know what you're saying, "it's an anomaly!" Well, he's had two - count 'em, two - above .500 seasons since he's been head coach of the Cardinals. Since 2010 he's 18-30 or .375. Since he's been the head coach of them since '07, he's 45-51.

But don't let facts get in your way.

Well, we could also bring back Chan Gailey, Mike Malarky, or Tom Moore.....

Gailey, Malarky, and Wizenhunt are all Peter Principle examples, guys that were promoted to their level of incompentence........ Frankly, they were all solid coordinators. So what if they can't run a team?

If Tomlin went 45-51, he'd be out of here and these forums would want him exiled from Pittsburgh. But, Whisenhunt does it and we want him as our head coach? I don't even understand.

I doubt Whiz comes back here under Tomlin given that he interviewed for the job and didn't get it. Wouldn't surprise me to see him at KC though.

For anyone who may have a short memory, Roethlisberger does not agree

Whisenhunt said the quarterback's June 2006 motorcycle crash may have contributed to his down season that year. Partly because of Roethlisberger's struggles, the Steelers started 2-6 after winning the Super Bowl and missed the playoffs.

Whisenhunt's comments seemed innocuous it was evident Roethlisberger wasn't the player in 2006 he was during the Super Bowl year but they apparently touched a nerve with a player known for his competitiveness.

"I don't agree with Whis. There were a lot of things I didn't agree with Whis about, and that's another one," Roethlisberger said at the time. "I had a bad year. I'm sure Whis had a bad year once in his career."

Before the Steelers and Cardinals played early in the 2007 season, Roethlisberger said he felt restrained in a Whisenhunt-coached offense that he felt limited his passing attempts, especially his downfield throwing.

Roethlisberger has made it clear that he doesn't care for Whisenhunt's methods or his play calling. He said he disagreed with his former offensive coordinator on a lot of things during their time in Pittsburgh. He called Whisenhunt's offense "predictable." He even sympathized with Matt Leinart when the Cardinals' former starting quarterback was enduring some tough love from the coaching staff.

Neither man acknowledged the other when the Steelers came to Glendale in 2007. No handshakes, no hugs, nothing. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that new Steelers coach Mike Tomlin even met with Roethlisberger before that game, just to make sure his quarterback didn't say anything else outrageous.
