There is a strong possibility Haley may be named Coach of the red Birds, if that does happen I think we'll know this coming week.
Should that happen meet your new OC, Randy Fichtner.


You heard it here first,

We don't know if either would become OC...the Wilson thing was merely media speculation before last season...

Um, no, several here LAST season wanted Fichtner to be OC when Arians was fired.

I am all for Fitchner as OC.

What has Kirby Wilson ever done? Our running game is in shambles.

Agree. Wilson, IMO, would be named OC.

I'll laugh my butt off if Haley doesn't end up as Cards coach.

The Patriots average 35 points a game all I'd like to see our Steelers average 24 to 27 a game.

We are 21st. in points scored, 26th,rush, and 21st.in yrds per game. Those numbers will get you an 8-8 record IF you have a good defense like ours. If it wasn't for our defense we would be somewhere around 4-12 or 5-11.

No sugar coating the facts, this offense needs work!

I agree that we need to fix the offense, and the best and easiest way I feel we can do that on a consistent and steady basis is to build a dominant offensive line that can just push the LOS and a solid RB that is in extremely good shape. I think if Dwyer turned the blinders on for the next 4 or 5 years, went to TOm Shaw with Ike in the offseason and got in top shape, he could be an above average RB in the NFL.

What I saw this year from him, how he handled having a shot at putting a stranglehold on the feature back role, showed up out of shape and frequently was requesting to come off the field instead of requesting to stay on it.....just gave a bad impression to me for what he was all about.

Rumor has the Denver OC and Ray Horton the top candidates for the Cardinals coaching job, so we may retain Coach Haley afterall.

Ok Sugar, you can laugh:wink:

The running game, defense and special teams don't score enough TDs. Only four teams had fewer TD runs this season. Only three teams had fewer defensive TDs. No team had fewer special teams TDs. Only two teams had fewer non-passing TDs.

On the other hand, only seven teams had more TD passes, and that's despite Ben Roethlisberger missing three-and-a-half games. Had he played all 16 games and kept throwing TD passes at the rate he was, then only four teams would have had more TD passes.

Wow that was a long winded way to say we didn't score enough :-)

This is interesting:

The San Diego Chargers have, apparently, bumped the interview scheduled with Bruce Arians on Wednesday in order to interview Mike McCoy today...

http://blogs.denverpost.com/broncos/2013/01/13/mccoy-interview-chargers/18154/

Arizona may not get a crack at McCoy...

Now, if only we knew whether or not Haley actually interviewed with the Cardinals...:razz:

Haley is smarter than you think, taking the Cardinal job would be like waiting on death row for execution.

The only thing going for them is they have a decent defense, but no QB and not too good of a OL.

Seattle, 49ers, and even the Rams will be too much for them to overtake, they are the Browns of the West.

Haley has a better gig here with the Steelers, and a opportunity to build off the foundation he had here when Ben was having one of his best years. All we need is a healthy O-line and a back that moves the chains.
