    Taking a look at the Steelers offense today it's hard to imagine anyone beating them, let alone the pansy-butt Denver Broncos. I'm thinking we reopen the coach hunt and see if the Pittsburg OC Ken Whisenhunt will interview with us (as well as the Raiders and others).

    if we hired him we'd be guaranteed at least one trick play per game

    I'll take the number 5 ranked offense's coordinator any day over the number 16 ranked offense's coordinator. :ok:

    He doesn't refer to them as trick plays. Their gadget plays. Just playing man. The commentators had a little talk about that earlier. Whisenhunt refers to "trick plays" as "gadget plays."

    No thanks I'm happy with Kubes. The Steelers defense is the reason why the steelers are dominating this game. Denver can't keep the ball. They shut down the colts last week this week its the broncos.

    Maybe we should just be patient instead of quick change of heart after one game.... and not just this game in particular.

    This is for those who like to use the "just one game" defense of something (why we should not draft Vince Young, or, in this case, why Whisenhunt is worth a look over Kubiak):

    the one game is the game that counts, it shows the best that that (coach, offense, defense, QB, whatever) can do at that particular time. It's clear, looking at the Pittsburg v Denver game, that the Denver scheme is not going to win any championships. The team was out-coached, out-schemed, out-played, and clueless throughout.

    And we're excited to be getting their offensive coordinator? Please.

    Yeah...maybe he will bring cowher and the pittsburgh defense with him. Oh and maybe he can bring Heinz Ward and Big Ben and Randel El and the best Offensive line. Maybe that had just a little to do with the victory today. [/sarcasm]

    The Broncos were not out coached. They were out played today.

    ...and Jake Plummer having to make plays showed up. Outplayed is right.

    The what does that say about Norv Turner and Dave Wandstedt... they got some superbowl rings with Jimmy, yet never got them on their own..

    Before I make judgement, I want to see the whole staff and what they can do with the talent we have.

    Can we go ahead and be on hold for the OC of whatever team wins the superbowl? Apparently, all other OC's lost at some point in 2005 and must suck.

    Nighthawk, may have taken the counter-point to the extreme, but I feel we're improving off what we had with Kubiak and new coordinators coming here. Just like other things, when something is given too much time to overanalyze the situation, trying to find the sure thing, one may just find options are limited by the time a decision is made.... and even then - hard to say it's the sure thing.

    Pitt just had a heck of a run in the playoffs to make it to Detroit - don't want to hold out too long on a possibility an OC will interview and miss out on other opportunities.

    What happens if we do tell Kubiak, "hold on.. we want to talk with Wisenhunt after the super bowl."

    Good lord people. We cant change our choices whenever the wind blows. Kubiak will do just fine. And Whisenhunt has alot of good tools to use on offense. Ben Roe, Heins Ward, Antwan Randle El, Jerome Bettis, Marvel Smith, Alen Faneca, Kendall Simmons, and Heah Miller.

    I feel Denver has less to work with on offense. Ashley Lelie, is your #2, and Jake Plummer, I have never thought was a good QB.

    Al Davis anounces that Kubiak is the Raiders next head coach.

    It's already been reported that McNair is holding a pc in an hour. I'm sure it is to make the announcement, or to open up talks again because nighthawk said so.:rolleyes:
