im thinking the SteelersFever home page poll is a pretty accurate barometer of what the results of this poll will be.

Although I think that either would be a great coach for the Steelers, I chose Grimm, and I chose him for the reason I think the Rooneys will choose him... I think he has more stability than Whiz. I think that he will be a guy who will WANT to stay with the Steelers for a long time. I see Whiz coaching with the Steelers for 5 years and then parlaying it into a bigger contract in a major market. Both these guys know the score on the Rooneys and money; they will be good, and fair, but not the most. They will offer security in the form of stability rather than as money. I just see Grimm as a guy who will choose the security in 5 years, and Whiz as a guy who will choose the money.

It doesn't make either guy a better or worse guy; but it does make one a better choice as a head coach for the Steelers.

Mods, whip me with a wet Terrible Towel for this, but we're all getting tired of waiting for the big announcement and it beats talking about politics and who we secretly lust after!!!


If it were up to me i would tap Tomlin (Though coach Lebeau's status and his scheme would be "hands off")
But i think the Rooney's may very well end up choosing Whiz.

Gailey is just a courtesy interview, at least I hope it is.... fresh thought just stalling for time until Riveria is out of playoffs...

I'm for Russ all the way...... He has the better relationship with the players and he has an incredible mind for both sides of the ball. I went to HS with him and he was a 2-way player and a brilliant one! He embodies our values! He is loyal. While Whiz has been here and there throughout his playing and coaching careers, Russ has only been 2 places....... Washington and here.

Russ is the OBVIOUS choice.

WHIZ all the way! As pitiful as the offensive line played this season I would hate to see Grimm get the job. He just appears to be a lazy guy. I don't believe that he would put in the work that's necessary for success on the field.

He is a finalist for the HOF for gods sake.

That is a horrible piece of analysis

Boy what alot of pressure! But I would have to admit I chose Whiz at the beginning of all of this BUT, I am leaning towards Grimm now! After reading and reading and reading with a little more reading and thinking. Grimm should be Coach...specially if we stay in-house. Hey after a week 2 weeks of this I am ready to pound my gavel! GRIMM GRIMM GRIMM

I see it being the Whiz. I think the Rooney's want to keep the rest of the current coaches on staff and the only real way to do that is to hire from within! However, I don't know if the Whiz is long term material like Cowher!

Well, it looks as if Whiz wins with the good people here at SF, according to the poll on the homepage:

Who would you hire to coach the Steelers?
Ken Whisenhunt 50.1%
Russ Grimm 27.9%
Jeff Fisher 10.7%
Mike Tomlin 4.9%
Other Coach 6.5%

Total Votes: 675


I voted for Whiz myself in this poll, simply because it's time for Steelers fans to forget about the "3 yards and a cloud of dust" offense and move into the 21st century. Defense still wins championships, but you still need to score points, and I believe Whiz could put together a pretty diverse and balanced offense.
