This is funny. In one camp we have posters bitching about nepotism and always hiring former players, in another camp we have posters who want Rod Woodson and.........just a week or so ago there was a post about Darren Perry becoming available.

Personally, I think it takes a special type of ex player to be a great coach. If you're sitting on a pile of money in retirement, after a stellar career being in the spotlight, it's gotta be nearly impossible to have the drive to put your nose to the grindstone in the mostly anonymous world of NFL position coaching. Great coaches grind. If I was Rod Woodson, hall of famer. Why the hell would I want to be at the office everyday at 6 am grinding?

I made an argument a few weeks ago that perhaps we draft dumb players. Is it really all Lake's fault?

How come Lake was able to get Haden to learn the defense so quickly? How come Mike Hilton excelled as a first year player and made very few mental errors?

Coaches can't do everything. They certainly can't shed blocks or tackle for you and that was a big problem this year. I'm not so sure the busted coverages were Lake's fault or just the players being dumb.

I think Philly is a well coached team. We all agree on that after Sunday. Yet, their secondary was completely lost during the SB. Pats receivers were running free like gazelles in the wild. The Eagles actually were WORSE than even last year's Steelers during the AFC Championship game were our secondary was breaking down left and right.

At the end of the day, players have to understand scheme, study film, and know their role in the defense (ie. when to switch off and when not to).

I'd like them to trade Mike Mitchell for Jalen Ramsey, but that ain't gonna happen either.

Off season forum prediction.

I put the under at 16 for how many consecutive posts any given thread will make it before a poster criticizes Tomlin.




way under as it should be, all the window dressing in the world should never take the spotlight away from whose ultimately responsible.

Tomlins direct mess. His players, his development, his coaches, his scheme, all his.

LeBeau is most likely a no...On the other hand Capers is a lifer who loved Pittsburgh

I expect Deshea Townsend is the Steelers DB coach

It wasn't the scheme or playcalling or top-level choices as much as jimmie & joes + fundamentals and player development.

The HC is involved in all of that, but position coaches have a big impact in those areas.



B2B, a huge aspect of being a good head coach are the coaching hires you make. He absolutely sucks at that.

So I guess munchak wasn't his fault or didn't hire him. Or Mann. Or the RB coach to replace Kirby Wilson. Nah, Bell didn't gain from his coaching. . .
