Default Coaching Changes Coming For Pittsburgh Steelers!

Quote:
by Nick Signorelli

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported today that there are changes coming to the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Special Team coach Bob Ligashesky will be released at the end of the season. The Steelers special teams have been anything BUT special this season, allowing huge kick off returns against the Browns, Vikings, Chiefs, and numerous times, the special teams have allowed players to get close on punts as well.

Bruce Arians is also in a good deal of trouble, according to Schefter. The Steelers will be either demoting or firing him at the end of the season.

Arians has become one of the most predictable coordinators in the NFL, failing more than he succeeds. Too many times the Steelers are unable to punch the ball into the end zone once they reach the red zone.

With all the weapons on offense, this Steelers team should be one of the most high scoring units in the history of the Steelers

IF this is true, why say it? Why not just do it now?

What's the point of letting them continue as lame duck coaches?

The only thing I can think of is either respect or contractual obligations. Besides, with 3 games left why bother going through all of the negotiating and grab ass. The SFO has alot of other important things going on right now.

Rumor has it (on sirius) that Ken Anderson will be promoted to OC.

If thats the case shit can Arians now and lets see what Kenny can do the next few weeks.

Go look at how successful the Bengals were on offense during his tenure there as OC.

I remember having nightmares last season when I thought they'd replace Therrien with Yeo, not again!

I don't know if it would be a good decision, he's 60 and has no other experience as OC than a short tenure with the bungles , but I'll trust the FO as usual.

1st off, this was already a rumor once before...is this a NEW rumor, or the same one just gaining traction because it's making a second round?

I'm fine with Arians being replaced, if there is any veracity to this rumor. If that's the FO's decision, than good for them. I hope he lands on his feet, and I hope his replacement does a good job. BUT the countdown for the first threads bitching about the NEW OC is starting. By game 3 next year we'll be right back to where we are now...

For the most part Steelers fans were satisfied when Whisenhunt was OC or as memory serves me. I think the game plans he put together for the 2005 playoffs and the Super Bowl where he had to overcome a poor game by his qb were pretty special.

Also I think it's noteworthy that after the Super Bowl you had the OC of the losing team on the short list of many of the teams with a Head Coaching vancancy while his counterpart on the winning sideline didn't draw a whiff of interest.


So maybe it's not just us moronic fans who don't hold Bruce in high regard?
