Default New guy thinks Whiz may be groomed...

I am new to the forum, and I would like to say thanks for the info I've gotten from reading it.

But has anyone else thought Whiz didn't take the job in Oakland cause he may become the HC in another 2 or 3 years. BC establishing his legacy with a SB win, him buying a house in NC. Lebeau already taking his shot in cincy may have scared him off of being a HC.

Could be possible...but the reason he didn't take the Raiders job was the same reason every other sane coach passed it up...who wants to work for a crazy man?

Who would want to work for Al Davis?

But I did think the same thing that you did, BUT I think it will be another defensive minded coach. Defense first in the Burgh!

i agree with all you. look who takes the raider job. coaching rejects. Norv turner perfect example. the only crediable hire al has had in the past 25 years is flores. Art shell sucks he had many hall of famers on his roster and still couldnt get it done. **** the raiders. GO Steelers we got you in the black hole this year

You seem to forget Gruden... not even remotely a coaching reject.

Art shell sucks? He had a winning record, 54-38, and a playoff appearance.

I understand if Steeler fans hate the Raiders, thats cool but, get your facts straight before flapping your gums.

It was because of that "crazy man" that the CBA was renewed this year. You can all hate on Al all you want but, the truth is, the NFL would not be what it is today without him.

I am looking forward to our game with the Steelers this year... very doubtful we will win but, it will be fun all the same. Our teams have played some of the greatest games ever!

no Whiz is not being groomed for Steelers job and if we didnt go so far into playoffs, he prolly would have had one of the other vancant jobs.. He is on the short list for vacancies next year.. possibly S.D, Tennessee, Baltimore to name a few and with so many new head coaches this year... there are a few that will prolly be gone after year two or three when they dont turn crummy ass teams around. By Looking at Cowhers face during and after the daft, i dont see him looking like he wants to go anywhere and him and Colbert have a great thing going with no clashes within the organization as most teams do. Love Grimm and Whiz both, but i think they will take off way before Cowher is ready to hang it up.

underrated is the fact that cowher is not a quitter. there are many coaches out there much older than cowher who love their wives, families, home, and relaxation. they also love the competition and their careers. cowher is no different and knows hes in the middle of establishing a legacy, in the city he loves, and in the nfl.

I think a better question of if Whiz is gonna take over his job, a more formidable question would be .. when is all said and done, will Cowher or Noll be the Coach that people identify with as Steelers football. Noll won early and has the 4 SuperBowls ... Cowher has always won as well and got his first one late... Will Cowher have to win 3 more for Steeler fans and non Steeler fans to put him up there with Noll or is the fact that it is a different era and maybe a little more difficult to win that Superbowl with free agency and team revenue as well as consistancy an equalizer ?
