LeBeau is staying!

BlitzburghRockCity
01-22-2007, 03:38 PM
He just confirmed that he's going to keep Lebeau !! Wahhoo !!

Yes he does seem a big arrogant, somewhat short and being politically correct.

Never thought I'd see the day when the Steelers hire a Head Coach that is younger than me. LOL

He sounds like he's going to keep the Steeler tradition alive with pounding the ball and stopping the run!

They are really harping on his age difference, he's taking it in stride. He's definitely a disciplinarian.

He's not a fire and brimstone, spitting, emotional guy. That is the first change that we will have to adjust too.

SteelerSal
01-22-2007, 03:45 PM
He seems to be loosening up a bit now. He has to be nervous because it's a rare privelage to be coaching the Steelers!!!!!!!

BlitzburghRockCity
01-22-2007, 03:48 PM
He's excited to work with Ben too, and yes he's definitely loosening up some now.

I'm so pumped about the Mike Tomlin hire. Its a breath of fresh air to this team. I'm excited about him working with LeBeau and coming up with some stuff for the defense.

One thing that impressed me he wants intelligent/flexable players.

I didn't get to see the whole thing but I REALLY liked what I did. He didn't come off as arrogant to me at all. He seemed humble about being a part of the history of this team, thankful for the opportunity and confident about his ability to do his job. I'm going to try to watch the whole thing by video if they have it available. I wonder why I had such a different impression??? :dunno:

Dude he was a bit arrogant in his initial several minutes, that much was clear. That's not to say that he shouldn't be, all coaches are arrogant to some degree, its part of being a coach. Cowher was as stubborn and at times arrogant based on his beliefs and I fine was with that as was most of the Steeler nation. He was clearly a bit nervous in the beginning but he loosened up and said all the right things.

I'm so relieved that the decision is made. We can move on now to finding out more about him and his plans for making this a great year for our team and for us! :bigthumb:

He came off excellent to me he seems like a very hard working, intelligent guy, who will put as he said fundamentals ahead of schemes systems which overall is more important when it comes to winning. He used the word atrition many times which means he believes that you have to impose your will on teams and just be flat out better then them to win. He seems like he is a guy who believes in working with good people first and good coaches second which is a good quality to have. He definitely looks like he will not put up with any of this laziness that occured this past off season and during the season, and he definitely looks like a guy who can keep Ben in line as well. Overall he was very very impressive to me.

I had to DVR the second half of the press conference and I just got done watching it. My favorite part...

Reporter: How does a former wide receiver become a defensive coach with a run first philosophy?

Tomlin: Well, obviously I wasn't a very good receiver.

I think Iron Mike is perfect for the job...

So far what I hear is good. I haven't paid attention to the whole searching process....so much of the off-season news to me can be so much just drama I don't pay enough attention to catch the big stuff....I'll have to look up the interview later. I'm encouraged and when you think about it.....the AFCN is now the hotbed of teams lead by black head coaches.....I don't mean to make everything about race but I meant that it is progressive. Lewis has done a good job in turning the Bengals around (the arrests I believe are more a result of the underfunding scouting of the Bengals. Romeo Crennel just hasn't done well because........well....it's the Browns.
