    Ed Bouchette on Porter:
    Ed Bouchette: I don't think they hired Joey Porter to look ahead to Keith Butler becoming their next defensive coordinator. In fact, Jerry Olsavsky, Porter's former teammate, also is a coach and looked to be their next LB coach.
    Now, that does not mean he knows any more than we do. If you remember, we never heard a word about Bicknell basically just collecting paychecks for half a season either. It is not like there is real journalism going on over there at the PPG.

    Mean Joe retired circa 1981.
    I think Joe was the dline coach and if I remember correctly Cowher said he let him go because he felt that joe cast a shadow over the team.

    And a little more than the single digit IQ he had when he played. This scares the **** out of me!

    Joey wasn't stupid. He was a loud mouth who sometimes spoke when he shouldn't, but he could play the position. He should be especially helpful in Jarvis Jones' development since Joey was never the biggest guy either.


    And I'm not sure why it would "scare the **** out of" you anyway. He's not the defensive coordinator. He's pretty much been brought in to give the LBs some pointers.

    It scares me because our coaching staff is gathering too many hotheads, big-mouths, and guys who's personality gets in the way of the organization. See my signature
