View Full Version : Conspiracy theory on FO's reasons for all these candidates...

There's a bunch of these on the Post-Gazette's website..


"This may sound crazy but ... I think the Steelers want Rivera so they came up with the great idea of putting Gailey into the mix, I do not think they will hire him. I do think they want to buy time and see if the Bears lose on Sunday and they have bought more time now for the next 2 weeks. If the Bears win, then next week they will be doing the 2nd round of meetings and that will last all week to see if the Bears win the NFC and go to the Super Bowl. Pretty good move because the Cards and Fish are at the Steelers mercy waiting to see if they hire Whiz or Grim. This should cause both of those teams to lose interest and feel like they are playing 2nd fiddle and waiting on the table scraps and they will both hire someone else who in the end will not help them win. Now it gets good -- the Raiders and the Steelers are the only two teams left and Rivera, Whiz and Grimm would never work for Big Al so Rivera is the pick and Whiz and Grimm stay for at least another year. Now for the Perfect ending -- last week I felt sad when Bill left, Then to hear all the talk about him taking this year off and then being the Giants, Cowboys or Browns coach next year made me mad and sick to my stomach. I think the Steelers Nation got the short end of the stick. Unless Big Al throws a ton of money at Bill to lure him West and then he has to pay the Steelers back. Now Mr. Rooney says ok we will take the # 1 pick this year and Randy Moss for pay back. The later part of this is just a good dream, but Rivera, Whiz and Grim holding the Super Bowl Trophy next year all as Steelers coaches could very well happen. Might as well stir the pot a little bit we only get to do this every 15 or 20 years." --


"The conventional wisdom in conspiracy theory circles would have to be that the Steelers are trying to take enough time for the Cardinals to offer Whisenhunt a contract so as to hire their favorite candidate, Russ Grimm, without having to actually choose him over Whisenhunt. I honestly don't believe that is what they are intentionally doing, but I do believe they favor Grimm over all others. He is a rough and tumble Pittsburgh guy -- and there is nothing wrong with that. I think either would be a good choice, but if I had a guess I'll go with Grimm in a photo finish."

I believe Grimm has got the stones to be the next HC. He was a nasty OLineman afterall. Whiz seems like he would be kinda laid back and if he did bark nobody would jump. As far as conspiracy theories go....I don't put nothin past nobody especially in the big business world of the NFL. You gotta be shrewd and cunning to get what you want, the NFL is no different. The Rooneys have been around for a looooooong time theres no telling what they got up their sleeves.....we've said this before....it's going to be interesting who they choose especially now that some time has gone by and some candidates are into their second interview stage with other teams.....:popcorn:

I just don't want us losing out on a potential good coach because we took too long interviewing a bunch of nobody's that everybody hates.

As a Steeler fan you have to trust the Rooney's judgement on this because they are by far the best and most respected owners in the NFL; I just hate waiting. !!!!!

I agree, we can only wait so long. Rivera, I just read his bio on Bears .com, seems like a great choice. But would he clean house? And how long would he take to clean house and start fresh. We have way to much talent for the REBUILDing mode.

There is no way in the world I want to go into a complete rebuild and I would hope the Rooney's would realize that when interviewing a potential candidate. This team has too much talent to go changing personnel and schemes all over the place.

That's why I want to stay in house if possible because the transition would be so difficult, that's not to say that some shakeups here and there aren't warranted because I think they are. However wholesale changes are definately something we don't want to go through.

I WISH THEY GET ON THE BALL AND HIRE WHIZ or GRIMM. That way everything stays intact and Ben can go his way in opening a can of whoop *** on the AFC NORTH and the NFL. This should of been done yesterday. You watch the Cardinals sweep up Whiz out of our grip. I will be highly pissed if this happens.

We've put way too much in over the years to keep this team competitive so we don't have to rebuild so this new coach better not screw it up !

Oh screw that!....lol We have a team that can compete for the Super Bowl next year and I'd hate to see us waste a year just to get Cowher back!

And if we get a coach from the outside there is no reason we can't play to win right now while they build the team through the draft and FA to go with the type of game that coach may like to play. The good things about the NFL is it doesn't take long to rebuild if that is what a team wants to do.

There's no doubt we need to get some damn Field Turf at Heinz. Everybody else in the northeast uses it, I mean comon already how much money do you have to waste on new sod before we get some decent damn turf that won't wear out every 2 months. !

I agree grass is best but in our climate it's just not condusive to the beating it takes from not only us, but also from Pitt, and all the local high school teams that play there too. By November it's just beat all to hell.

Thats why I hate teams like the Colts since they play indoors and they're soft.

I don't recall many Steelers suffering season ending knee injuries this year. You don't think turf can be dangerous also? You have to watch that turf ****. Like I said the field turf is alot better then the old ****. But still it can dangerous also. Football is a dangerous game period.

I know we will just put the players in a plastic bubble and turn the game into flag football since football is a dangerous game.

As for the high school, Pitt and the Steelers all sharing Heinz Field. I have never liked the idea but I understand when a stadium costs that much you want to use it more then just for 10 Steelers home football games.

but the field ****s us up more then the away team, willie sucks enough as it is when we play a team that is decent on defense, we don't need to field ****ing him up more by him slipping all the time

the rooney's need to wake their old asses up and get with the program and make the field badass looking......cause it looks like a peice of ****, and players from around the league said it's the worse field in the nfl........the nfl needs to get on top of this and for the dumbass rooney's to change the field and hire a coach lol

That's an idea that's been kicked around between my Dad and I AZ, but figured that everyone would think that I was bein' ridiculous, so I hadn't mentioned it here. But it IT is a thought, and probably no more off base than anything else that's surrounded the BC discussion.

It WOULD give Bill a year (at least) to rest, and will have saved the Rooneys a few mill, and I just CAN'T imagine him (and don't WANT him ;)) coachin anywhere else....:2cents:

Stringing out and delaying the interview process by bringing in a bunch of Flunky coaches like Gailey and Sherman makes sense if they are waiting on Ron Rivera and Chicago to exit the playoffs.

Supposed Ron Rivera is a lot like Cowher before he got hired as HC....he's been a player in the league who wasn't a big name who had to work very hard and over-achieve in order to play, he relates very well to modern players but doesn't put up with a lot of stupidity and non-sense and loves to play and coach hardnosed defense.

Being that Rivera would be a first time head coach I believe he wouldn't be able make a lot of changes on either side of the ball.........either with players or the playbook and I'm sure the Rooney's would make that clear from the beginning.

Making a change in a calculated direction can be a good thing.
