Hmm, they only question I have is why didn't Grimm get the Arizona job or any other job he interviewed for?

not sure, but maybe Grimm thought he already had the steelers job, and thankfully declined. and no, I'm not on Grimm's jock, like alot of people around here. i don't know a darn thing about Grimm, the coach

Re: Grimm and Steelers had Verbal Agreement (rumor)

I would have a hard time believing that a team would hire a person just because he was a minority. I know they have that rule they have to interview at least 1 minority and maybe they where just going through the motions thinking Grimm was their guy. Then they have the interview and like Tomlin over Grimm. Theres just too much money involved to pick a coach just because he is a minority and this says allot about Tomlin because the Steelers have a history of great coaches.

Their rumors, on the other hand, are less than reliable. They do a good job of reminding people, however, when their rumors prove true. Moreover, their "rumors" are oftentimes crib notes of articles reported by other more established media outlets (e.g., ESPN). For example, on 1/20/07 at 9:17 p.m. they reported that "their sources" told them that Tomlin was going to be hired. Then, 13 minutes later, they post a story that Mort at ESPN is reporting that Tomlin is to be hired. I would bet that more often than not, "their sources" consist of SI.com, ESPN.com.

This is dead on the money. Journalists have a phrase to describe the technique. "Commanding the Dawn".
