Default If Mike Tomlin is really calling the shots....

our next OC will be Jim Caldwell..


I would think Caldwell does qualify for the job and the Rooney's would have no problem approving such a move. It would not shock me though to see a bidding war on his services... I think he's highly respected as an offensive mind. I also think it would mean a lot more of Ben calling plays based on reads.


If the Rooney's are calling the shots, then expect a lengthy search for the next OC position... unless we promote with in.

I wouldn't mind it, Ben has proven he can call his own plays when he goes no huddle. It seems that he gets rid of the ball quicker too when he calls his own plays

What other teams are needing OCs? Rams just hired Brian Schottenheimer so they're out. Anyhow I'd be ok with Caldwell. Maybe not the best HC but he is a good offensive mind. My favorite is Clements who seems to be everybody else's too and for good reason.

I was kinda hoping for Clements too, his QB coaching experiemce would have definitely helped Ben to learn to read defenses better.
aka - Rodgers', per example ?

It's still possible. But yeah he's got a nice resume especially with Rodgers who has blossomed under his coaching.

It's not like Caldwell doesn't have similar credentials. There's some guy that did pretty well under him as well. Can't remember his name right now...

Moore was the OC, Caldwell the QB coach, then head coach.
