I still haven't seen it confirmed, but Laird hasn't been wrong in the past, so I'll assume Arrians is gone. Who is out there that would have a good mix of run and pass, and who would find himself a real line coach and find a way to protect the franchise and punch it in from the red zone?

The names I've heard so far:
Chan Gailey
Charlie Weis
Al Saunders

(all improbable IMO)

KDKA is reporting as well...


I like Gailey, always have. Kordell had his best seasons under Chan and he seems like a guy who would adjust the offense to the personel and not vice versa.

I'd accept Charlie Weis as well. Watched a good bit of ND football this year and their offense definitely wasn't the problem.

Brian Billick's name was just mentioned as a possibility for the Buffalo HC job as well as the Bear's OC job, so I guess he's a possibility, altough, I think he's too far in the enemy camp, being a former Raven.

Weiss, Martz!?  Are y'all kidding me?  Of all those mentioned, Gailey would be the only one I'd want.  But I think it's time for some young blood so I'm guessing it's somebody we've never heard of or the WR coach Finny mentioned.

I don't know if a no-name would work in this case. It's gotta be someone Ben is gonna respect, because IMO he's hard headed. If we get some guy with no resume, I can see the vets running over him. Also, it's gotta be someone Tomlin would trust. Gruden would be perfect if he wasn't so insistant on a HC job and didn't have the ESPN contract thing. Of course, then Tomlin would always be looking over his shoulder.

Tomlin was a no name with a pretty small resume, and he faced the same problems.

I know what you're saying, but I don't expect the Steelers to throw the position open to competition like they would for a HC job. It's gotta be someone Tomlin is comfortable with, probably someone he worked with when he was coaching under Dungy or Gruden. I just don't know of any guys who were on those staffs who might be qualified.

Here's a possibility. He doesn't have a history with Tomlin, but he does have one with the Steelers:

One reason I like the Arians departure is that it suggests that Ben's sway only goes so far.  Ben is a great football player but as I mentioned elsewhere, I don't expect him to always know what is best for him and/or the team.
