Clements is going to be the GB offensive coordinator. So we can all quit asking for Clements.

I do believe Tomlin has ties with Caldwell... I think they are friends.

Really? How about he asks for a quick snap too, rather than waiting for the last second? A no-huddle with full count down is a joke.

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.
After further thought, I can not see us promoting with in. Doing so would mean the Rooney's want to keep the current system in place. If that were the case then they would not have fired Arians. The reason we have the reputation of promoting with in, is because typically our coaches get offered head coaching positions or promotions... in which case you would want continuity.... not someone new.

I don't know how Caldwell has a good offensive mind when he never called an offensive play in his entire life and that includes college. I want a guy who has called thousands of offensive plays and has seen everything there is to see. The only way the Steelers are going to look good getting rid of BA is to hire a genius.

I wouldn't mind Mr. Noodle aka Brad Childress as OC and Caldwell as the QB coach.

Caldwell is a good coach and I think it's BS the Colts got rid of him. I understand they had a two win season but it's obvious that Peyton Manning is just that good and their backups can't run the offense in anywhere near the same fashion. I hardly thought this season was the fault of Caldwell. I think he was a package deal with the Polians. I honestly think Jim Tressel is going to be the Colts next head coach. They bring the guy in as a replay advisor? That's a crock of crap. That's one high profile guy to be a just a "replay" advisor.

I think the Steelers have had quite enough of geniuses. Time to try some hard work instead.
