Steelers to Hire Everest

He's soo bad that a team like Pitt is gonna snatch him up. I didn't like him getting canned in the 1st place, but this just re-enforces that opinion. The Steelers don't make a lot of mistakes in regards to coaches.

I care, hence the reason I posted it. This is my 2nd post on the subject of our STC position. Don't want to read it then don't, and move on to something else rather thenleaving your immature little snippet intended to garner a reaction of a warnable manner.

Nice try Chef.

It doesn’t matter what teams coaches got go or come from. What matters is how well a coach fits into a system.

What are you saying cause Pittsburgh picked him up he’s the best ST Coach in the land we should have never let him go and we should all be pissed.

I think he’s a good coach but wore out his welcome with the 9ers and needed to move on.

Lol, I was just poking fun.... geeesh. Sorry dude.

Anyway, I don't think he is a big loss.
You know he really didnt have anything to work with in the first place.
Good for them.

No thats NOT what I said at all. What I said, paraphrased, is Pitt has a history of EXCELLENT decisions pertaining to coaching.

Coaching is the ONE facet of the NFL that is not regulated in regards to salary (or atleast for now) and successful teams spend in the coaching department.

You don't simply let a good coach go for the sake of determining blame, which is what happened to Everest. Everest specialized in ST's. That was HIS thing. Normally position coaches that focus on a specific area and intend to remain in that area are better coaches then those who are general coaches like Shottenheimer.

Who do you want repairing your heart, a heart surgeon or your primary care physician?

A guys dedicated to a specific position or facet will ALWAYS be better then the guy looking to be a jack of all trades.

Who do you want as your OC. Marty Mornigwheig (SP?) who specializes on offense, or a guy who's spent his NFL coaching career as a jack of all trades?

I think coaching, to include ST's, is vastly underated in todays NFL and many fans are too damn ignorant to hold their teams accountable with their "meh, it's ST's who cares" or "meh it's ST's, anyone can coach ST's" attitude.

Is there?

He worked for the team and did a good job, made a mistake that allowed Singletary to point the finger as the reason for his own failure and as such is no longer going to be working for the team anymore.

Sounds like canned to me, but if you want to get into semantics.....

Coaching is overrated by fans for the most part. The Eagles sent 2 players to the Pro Bowl on STs and STILL fired their ST coach.

As Mike Ditka says, players play, coaches coach. Mike Tomlin doesn't look like such a genius when he doesn't have the #1 defense in the NFL (thanks to injuries in their secondary) which further exposed their lack of running game/offensive line, special teams, etc.

You still need better players.
