Default Re: The Official Bill Cowher's Successor Thread

I havent been impressed with the play calling of ken whisenhunt. And with the offensive lines inconsistancy I wouldnt want russ grimm either. I'm nervous about anyone being hired within the cowhers staff. Look at the list of former cowher coaches and how there stints as head coaches ended up. Lebeau,haslett,mularkey,gailey,capers just to name a few. I'm a big fan of Viking defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin. But I think Rob Ryan or Ron Rivera would be good canidates as well. I think Kirk Ferenz would be a good canidate but I dont think he would even interview.

Default Re: verron haynes on sirius radio

not sure what thread to put this in but i was listening to haynes on his weekly spot. they asked him if it seemed like it was cowhers last game at heinz field last weekend and he said no.

he commented on cowher at half time during the baltimore loss. he seems to not understand where all this lack of emotion talk comes from. he said cowher was so fired up (he couldnt repeat what he said) and his speach was so motivational, that if he were healthy he wouldve suited up to go play.

haynes is another who doesnt want to see cowher go, but he understands if he does. he is another who wants to see grimm or whiz take over and feels either is more than capable.

does the teams desire for continuity equal an acceptance of mediocrity? id have to say no but thats up for debate. after all the steelers have been one of the best teams in the nfl the past 15 years. i gotta look at this year as a fluke.

a minor tweak is needed not a major shake up.

Default Bill Cowher goes to Washington?

Rumors floating around...

Snyder in Washington isn't happy and he's prepared to pay off the current staff and make Cowher the highest paid coach in the NFL.

This was on "The Herd" with Colin Cowherd today.

My personal opinion; it would be exciting to see a different offensive system come to Pittsburgh. I love the 3-4 defense but if that has to go I can live with it. Can you tell I'm not afraid of change? lol. Actually I welcome it as the Steelers have been the Steelers for a long time. (Most of you know what I mean) ;-)

P.S. I still like to win, A LOT! So that can't change. Ok, Ok, I'm pushing it.

Lets just hope they pick the right man. As with the loyalty the Rooneys show he could be around for a while. If they pick wrong we could be in for 3-5 years of being a bad team before they even think about replacing the HC.
I think thats about my biggest fear in this whole thing is getting into the coaching carousal for the next umpteen years.

Well here is something. What if we get two first rd draft picks for cowher. Or a deal similar to what the raiders got for gruden. If it's a good push for our future i would make the deal. Keep in mind the redskins are going to have a top ten pick

thats one thing i'm not worried about. The Rooneys have done a great job at picking coaches. And I think they know how to sense what a great coach is

Beano cook just said that the steeler job would be the only job he would leave iowa for. I was raised on the south dakota/minnesota/nebraska/iowa border and I just got off the phone with my buddy. He said that all the speculation around iowa is that ferenz will be taking over the steelers. I would love that pick

It took forever for them to start picking winning HC`s. Noll was the first real good coach they ever had.
