Default Whisenhunt gets Super Bowl opponent wish

Whisenhunt gets Super Bowl opponent wish

The Arizona Republic

There was no "we don't care who we play" stuff from Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt. His roots in Pittsburgh run too deep, and he got his wish when the Steelers held off Baltimore Ravens on Sunday for the AFC title.

"Obviously, that organization and the people associated with it hold a special place in my heart. From that standpoint, this is something of a dream scenario for me and many of the other coaches on our staff. I'm happy for Mr. (Dan) Rooney, Coach (Mike) Tomlin and their entire organization. We're looking forward to a great matchup in Tampa."

Whisenhunt spent six seasons with the Steelers before coming to Arizona in 2007 and was coach Bill Cowher's offensive coordinator when the Steelers won Super Bowl XL in Detroit.

Whisenhunt was a candidate for the Steelers' top job when Cowher retired after the 2006 season, but Pittsburgh opted for Tomlin.

Eight of Whisenhunt's assistants - Russ Grimm, Todd Haley, Teryl Austin, Bill Davis, John Lott, Mike Miller, Matt Raich and Kevin Spencer - have Pittsburgh connections.

Arizona defeated the Steelers 21-14 the most-recent time they met, 2007 in Glendale.

I expect he will use at least one gadget play against us.

Whiz and Grim obviously know the Steeler offense well and that will give them an advantage. How well do you think that LaBeau knows how Whiz thinks? How much, if at all, do the offensive and defensive coordinators interact during game planing through out a season?

I must admit I am concerned on how much inside knowledge their coaching staff has about our Steelers.

I remember an interview Bradshaw did years ago regarding SB XIV. He struggled against the Rams quite a bit in that game (3 picks), and mentioned it had a lot to do with Bud Carson being the Rams' DC at the time - before that, Carson was our DC. Food for thought.

I'm not TOO terribly worried. I guess I look at it from the standpoint that the current Steelers offense isn't a whole lot like Whiz's offense from a few years ago. Plus...(IMO) Grimm just strikes me as a big dumbass. (sorry...he just does.)

I have been thinking about that . . .

Who exactly do they know? They don't really know Starks as LT, they don't know Kemo as a LG, Hartwig has never played against them. Stapleton is new for them, Colon is known.

Santo has come into his own as has Washington. Roethlisberger is a much better QB maturity wise.

So I am not as worried about it.

On D, we really have changed how we play D. It is more a straight up mugging now then it used to be.
