Thread: WR Coach Scott Montgomery Leaving

  1. #21
    lets hope Mike does not hire another crony. I not sure Ward is the ansewer as Wr coach but they need a coach who the young recievers can learn from.

    What "crony" has Tomlin hired? Haley? No. LeBeau? Given to him. Carnell Lake? No. Bicknell? No.

    Guess I don't see the cronies you do.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    If that's the case, then every head coach in the NFL hires "cronies", if the only qualification is that they previously worked together...

    Rob Chudzinski hired Norv Turner = crony

    John Harbaugh hired Juan Castillo = crony

    Jim Harbaugh hired Greg Roman and Vic Fangio = cronies

    The list goes on and on...

    Swanny and Stallworth might be too old, but wonder if Lipps or Thigpen would be interested in coaching?

    If you were going to look for a former player to be a coach, I would try to find somebody who got the job done without great physical tools, and instead somebody who outperformed their measurables. An offensive equivalent of Deshea Townsend.

    The nostalgia of the old stars is great, and they certainly have some gravitas, but it is rare that you have a really good play become a really good coach. I think Carnell Lake is more the exception than the rule.

    I agree. There are more Cowhers, Grudens and Jeff Fishers in the NFL than there are Jim Harbaughs...

    Exactly. Every coach in the league hires people they know but when Tomlin does it somehow it becomes insidious.

    I hope that this is not the measuring stick for a "really good" player

    So two out of the 10 coaches (20%) on the staff (Jones is gone) have a previous relationship with Tomlin and that is rabid cronyism. None are in key positions like being a coordinator but somehow Tomlin has got it wrong? Wow!
