I would rather Whiz go to Atlanta than the Dolphins, so we dont have to face him as much in the oncoming years. I think Russ will the be out next HC and have no clue who the next O-Coord will be. If I were Whiz, I would take the Miami job though, he will have total control of the team there and that is by far the most attractive opportunity, aside from the steelers, out there right now.

Singletary is not a serious candidate right now and Tedford from Cal doesn`t have a great record with NFL QB`s. And Vick is a defenite project.

I actually thought the rap on Tedford's QBs at Cal was that he coached them up so much in college it exaggerated their ability to excel at the NFL level.

As for Singletary not being a serious ATL candidate, that is King's claim, not mine, but I assume he has better sources than either of us.

I just don`t think Blank is going to hire an assistant without much experience. The Mora experiment was a lesson learned.

That may explain the Tedford rumor - Whiz is a hot young coordinator but so was Mora, Jr. three years ago - of couse college HCs have their own issues in terms of making the transition to the pro game

Surprised to hear the Falcons are moving so quickly, but they may figure Dallas and the Giants are about to have vacancies and it is time to get a selection locked in.

I have a hard time believing that Whisenhunt would acccept the Atlanta job before even interviewing with the Steelers. His interview with the Steelers is not until Tuesday.

That might depend on whether or not Blank "talks numbers" that Whiz knows the Rooneys will or cannot match. Along with giving him (Whiz) a very limited window in regards to time to accept the offer.

I agree. Like if blank offered whisenhunt 3 million a year I dont think the rooneys would give a unexperienced head coach money like that

They say Cowher was not personally close to his assistants (not a bad idea when you are dealing with folks you might have to fire) but Iwonder whether Cowher's alleged dissatisfaction with what the Rooneys would pay was shared with Whiz. As I have posted eleswhere, HC candidates and their agents probably have a good idea of what actually went on in any contract negotiations involving Cowher and that information presumably will impact how those candidates balance other offers that may be made against seeking the Steelers job.
