Greetings yinzers and non-yinzers alike. It's Gameday once again. Late game today, so I'm getting a little bit of a late start with the blogging.
In the Arizona Cardinals, the Steelers have their most intriguing interconference rivalry since they volleyed trash talk with Tampa Bay in the early 2000s.
Cards coach Ken Whisenhunt and offensive line coach Russ Grimm already had bugs up their asses because they both think they should have the Steelers head coaching job. Then on top of that, the Steelers broke their hearts in Super Bowl XLIII.
I have a feeling that as long as the Cardinals beat the Steelers, Whisenhunt doesn't care if the Cardinals go 2-14 and he gets fired and works at Chick-Fil-A for the rest of his life.
What I'm trying to say is this game will be a tough one for the Steelers.
The Cardinals' coaching staff includes four former Steelers employees. Joining Whisenhunt are former Steelers cornerback Deshea Townsend, now Arizona's assistant defensive backs coach, and former Steelers secondary coach Ray Horton, now the Cards' defensive coordinator.
Ex-Steelers Joey Porter and Clark Haggans will be on the field today. They're joined by former Steelers Crezdon Butler (cornerback) and Nick Eason (defensive end).
You know damn well all of those guys were pumped for Steelers trade secrets Gitmo-style. I'm surprised they weren't given new identities, considering Arizona is the Witness Protection State. It says that on their license plates, doesn't it?
Oh, Whisenhunt did give back Bryant McFadden. But the Cardinals totally fucked him up and he sucks now.
I think Mike Tomlin needs to show today in no uncertain terms why he is the Steelers coach and not Whisenhunt.
