Carson would certainly welcome an OC who coached him up for the Heisman.

But it is the standard rap on college coaches - given the talent gaps at the NCAA level anyone coaching the talent USC or Florida recruit annually looks pretty good and then can get exposed without having that advantage at the pro level. Norm has done nothing special with the Titans.

Chow as OC? Would we be going for the all-octogenarian coaching team? Norm Chow is 61 years old, and Dic k LeBeau (We need to fix that swear word censor thingy, by the way) is 70.

I always thought Chow was a bad fit in Tennessee. He's a drop-back pocket QB genius, and Vince Young is anything but. But I'll take Arians and this offense's potential and a little momentum and consistency from '07 into '08 over Chow anyday.

vince youngs terrible season was definitely not norm's fault... did u see their level of talent?

1. U have a QB who can't learn a playbook and who's first instinct is to take off and run with it...

2. You have recievers named bobby wade and justin gage... (u brought in an ancient relic in eric moulds to be ur #1 reciever...)

3. Ur running back position is solidified by chris henry a guy who ran a 4.4 forty but did nothing in college and lendale white... who's weight speaks for itself.. and chris brown..

i say bring norm to Pittsburgh... as a QB coach... who's our guy now? ken anderson... i think...

anyway im probably just really high on norm chow because of the fact he attended the same school as me... PUNAHOU!!!

umm...Ken Anderson....yeah, he's done ok for Ben I think. 2nd rated quarterback in the league. Watch the America's Game segments with the Steelers. I believe it was Joe Greene? who talked about hating to play the Bengals of old because Kenny Anderson used to tear them up. We'll be fine with who we have. 2nd year should be much better with Arians and Anderson. (and an o-line)

idk man...being a great player doesn't ALWAYS mean u'll be a great coach... art shell's second attempt wit da raiders turned crappy... and besides ben made everyone else around him look GOOD

i agree the second year will be great for da stillers
