It’s the up and down of the news cycle.
Earlier today, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen said in a chat he thought Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau would give the Cards’ DC job “serious consideration.” He even put the LeBeau-to-Arizona possibility at 50-50.
Then later today, LeBeau talked to the NFL Network and basically squashed that. “I promise you, if I’m coaching, it will be the Pittsburgh Steelers,” LeBeau said, leaving the opening for retirement with his “if I’m coaching” comment.
This story isn’t going away until a) the Cards hire someone (coach Ken Whisenhunt interviewed Dolphins assistant Todd Bowles yesterday) and/or the Steelers’ season ends and LeBeau (and Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler) are officially said to be off-limits. If that isn’t resolved, my guess is LeBeau hasn’t answered the question for the last time, with the NFL’s media decending on the Super Bowl next week.
P.S. Here’s the link to the story of Fitz flying two fans to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl — and by coincidence, one happens to be recovering from cancer.
P.P.S. We will do a live chat with QB John Skelton tomorrow at noon Arizona time.
