Thanks, actually it does. Now KDKA is saying that Grimm knew Friday night that he wasn't going to be offered the job. Christ, I don't know who to believe anymore at this point, so I'm not going to comment any further on the subject.

I'll go with the Grimm interview as the source. He wasn't putting down the organization and he even honked the horn as he left!

With that I have more respect for Grimm and wish him some success in AZ (as long as it's not against the Steelers)

Prior to the hire the choice looked grim.

Okay seriously. The more I learn about Tomlin the more I think we made the right choice.

Why the Russ Grimm post-mortem is garnishing this much attention is a little baffling unless there is cause for litigation. Ike Taylor's 2006 signing bonus should still be more newsworthy than this. Shouldn't it?

It's a shame that the sports media has come to this. Their subject isn't Hollywood, it's football. The general level of reporting has sunk to the level of tabloid press. PFT is a joke. To me the most credible and least sensationalised place for NFL / Steelers coverage is PPG, Sirius NFL Radio, and oddly enough, the NFL network.

Here we go.

There was a thread this weekend taking Lennie P. of ESPN (a Pittsburgh native and Pitt graduate) to task for having the audacity to claim Pittsburgh residents do not embrace change as eagerly as some other communities. I think the Grimm story has maintained legs because he is a Pittsburgh guy and a lot of fans wanted/expected the Steelers to stay in the comfort zone with an inside hire rather than a selecting a 34 year old outsider.

The fact that he was not snapped up to be a HC or OC by another team makes it hard to claim the Steelers passed on a sure HC success by not hiring Russ. As another poster said, Grimm exited with class so I think this story should expire shortly.

Who really knows. Frankly, I don't trust much from the media that has to do with big deals like this. They always make up crap. the point is, Tomlin's here, Grimm is in AZ. The End...and we can stop the soap operas.

The media just being the media again. My money goes on what Grimm had to say during that last interview in the parking lot.

I wish people would stop using profootballtalk as a news source.

This is the same outfit that was spreading rumors that Bradshaw was killed in a car accident.

The poster who used it as a source is #1, new here, and #2, didn't know that PFT is the National Enquirer of the NFL. He/she knows that now and acknowledged it. Please cut him/her some slack.
