Fichtner isn't going to run the exact same playbook and calls as Arians did. I hope he gets the job, he'll do an excellent job and i like what he's been involved with in the past.

It wasn't the calls as much as it was when they we're dialed up. Fich will do fine if he's hired, and I almost hope he is.

I know BB is the franchise QB, but he wanted Arians to stay in the past and got his wish, maybe it was because Brucey gave Ben too much leeway . I am sure Fichtner would do a decent job, but is an extention of the Arians offense what the Steelers really want.
As far as I am concerned the Steelers should be making a strong run at Clements and if he's unavailable then they should seriously consider Todd Haley.

Please hire outside. Clements, Haley, etc. I'd even rather have Caldwell than Fitchtner.

I'd still like for us to interview Hue. Is he out of the picture? I heard someone was courting him, maybe Fisher in St. Louis or something? Why not interview him? I love what he did (for a while at least) with McFadden.

Fitch has been here Ben's whole tenure...and yet when his suspension was over he credits another QB coach for "fixing his mechanics", something he has never said about Fitch...that tells me all i need to know....and then there's Dennis Dixon...

Yup. I'm really hoping they look elsewhere. No one has yet answered my question as to why Scottie Montgomery is not even mentioned in the discussion.

I agree if Fitch can get a look...why not Scottie? Unless they feel he's not a strong enough personality to deal with Ben
