Belichik was a DC. He's done all right.

Jay Gruden was an OC. He hasn't done all right.

Which side of the ball they specialized in is unimportant. Their vision for how to build a TEAM, their ability to enact that vision effectively, and their ability to control and manage the details and minutiae on a day to day basis are the only qualities that matter.

And Smitty and Quinn have been found lacking.

Maybe an Offensive head coach could maximize the clear strength of this team

If we lost our starting QB we would be losing by 30 in Seattle by now. This is as soft and ill prepared football team as you'll ever find.

Not if we had a competent backup..smh. Matt has never had anybody to push him..I think its time to draft that guy..Its why I wanted lamar jackson. But TD loves his wr's..

They are The Braves of the South, and The NFL adores them.

Innovation of Shawn Payton

A strong organization.

 

That's why McDaniels was the coach here...Someone who isn't a press conference, speaker, type of guy. The winners in The NFL are nerd innovators.

Dan Quinn is a joke to Sean Payton!!! We need Blank to start handing out pick slips and rebuild this team the right way.

At this point it’s more important to get the right head coach than worry about which side of the ball he comes from. 

I mean, if Mike Tomlin were available, would you really take a pass?

If a backup QB can make the defense make the other team more than once a game I'm all for it.

Jon Gruden was a former OC who rode Tony Dungy's defense to a championship.

Baltimore won with a former OC and a ST coach based on defense.

Denver's last championship came with a former OC who (along with a broken down Manning) rode a defense to a championship.

Belichik is a former DC who has won with defense-heavy AND offense-heave teams.

Andy Reid is a great OC who's never won anything.

Again: which side of the ball they specialized in is completely unimportant. How they build and manage the entirety of the team is the ONLY thing that matters.

Yes - if Tomlin can't keep his job in Pittsburgh, he can't win here.

I agree on not worrying about DC vs OC though.  We just need to focus on hiring a smart person.

Heck, if we hadn't lost Ryan we'd probably still be down by 30 in Seattle. ^_^

Every head coach, save for the blessed few are going to be fired sooner or later. Coach being fired ain’t an indication of their ability.

As much as I hate Sean Payton, he's a bonafide HC. He knows how to prepare his team and amazingly enough they always have a better defensive product than us with our defensive HC.

Yep. Colts finally won the SB when they had balanced team, the SB year was statistically a down year for Manning compared to other years,

You are right of course, but there are exceptions and Pittsburgh is one of those very few exceptions. 

With all of the organizational structure and patience that Pittsburgh provides, a coach who gets fired there isn't likely to succeed in a more dysfunctional environment.

The 0-2 Steelers with Big Ben lost for the season are on the road and leading the 2-0 49ers late in the 3rd quarter.

That may not hold, but does anyone think the Falcons would be able to go on the road without Ryan and not go down by 20 in the first half?
