Orlando Steinauer - How Much Longer?

Bye week social media team was a day late making a birthday post for santos knox also

I don't think there is a single department of this franchise that has it together right now. From management to coaches to players to training staff to marketing. It's like everyone is taking the year between hosting Grey Cups off. And it's annoying and frustrating to be a fan right now.

If management starts listening to the fans then management soon will be sitting with the fans . The Steelers have had 3 coaches in 53 years (Noll , Cowher, and Tomlin) . Strong ownership and continuity in the coaching staff has kept the team in contention for years .

NO!

Well it doesn’t necessarily have to be him. It would just make more sense for the GM to hire the coach and not the other way around, if they were to actually let Orlondo go. And given that Hervey has played in the league and has been a full fledged GM at one point, the team would probably see him as the more logical choice over Allemang or Zimmerman.

I understand your point though. Hervey has been outspoken before and had some questionable dealings with players and coaches, so they may not want to put that power back in his hands.

Thanks for elaborating on my rather terse reply. I actually don't like it so much when others do the same without supporting their point so it was a bit rude of me..

But you did gather my feelings and actual thoughts on the matter quite well and I agree with your perspective.

Wasn't Hervey responsible for that mess of an O-Line that BC had the entire time Reilly was their QB?

If so then I wouldn't trust him to build a superior O-Line in Hamilton either.

This was literally every person watching a BC Lions game with that swiss cheese of an O-Line

Maybe this Hamilton OLine was built by GM Hervey??

In 2017 a very dominant Steelers' squad was trending towards meeting the Philadelphia Eagles in an all-Pennsylvania Super Bowl . . . until December 4, 2017 when a young All-Pro LB named Ryan Shazier left Paul Brown Stadium on a spinal board . . . very sad day . . .

But getting back to the Tiger-Cats and this question about our Head Coach . . .
I am going to guess eleven (11) years. Let me know if I win a prize !!!

If you don't count 2020 , Coach O has been the head coach for 3 years . That makes 2030 your magic number . I'd love to be around to give you your prize but I don't see me living to 85 . I do like your 11 year projection though . :slightly_smiling_face:

No worries and no offence taken. Going around these forums and listening to other team’s fans I’ve picked up a lot of negative vibes re. Hervey. And I remember him going off on Simeon Rottier in a press conference in just his first or second year as Edmonton’s GM. Don’t know if it was his way to light a fire under him or the team but it seemed pretty amateurish to me.

That type of personality might be why the team is reluctant to toss the keys at him and is working GM’s by committee. You never know though, getting let go in a couple of spots might be a humbling thing and he may have learned a life and football lesson or two along the way.

Hard to say if it was entirely on him. Chungh and Boyko didn’t really pan out as advertised and Ryker Matthews was hurt all of 2021. They did improve quite a bit when they hired Kelly Bates as coach to replace Bryan Chiu.

I liked the moves to bring in Saxelid and Colin Kelly from Edm, though Kelly is more of a right tackle. Hasn’t helped that we’ve had a bunch of injuries and haven’t played the same lineup in any of the games. If they can keep this group healthy and together for a few games it might come together by mid- season.

Next year though they definitely need to put a priority on drafting some top oline prospects. And if Drew Desjarlais doesn’t make it in the NFL this year or next they should go after him hard. Believe he’s from Windsor and may want to play closer to home. Pretty sure he was a free agent for 2022 as his rookie contract expired but Winnipeg will also be dangling some big dollars in front of him if he comes back.

Courtesy of 3DN see where Coach O stands or sits in this instance on the CFL's Head coaches hot seat... :fire: :chair:

Looked at thatearlier.How can Steinauer not be on the bottom of that list? And I think Lapo & Campbell are pretty secure at this point.

Danny Maciocia. He's the NEXT coach to be canned if he can't get the Als out of the dumpster this season. After all... Maciocia DID claim to have assembled a talent laden roster and that Khari Jones had been gifted all the tools he needed to win.

Wouldn't that mean he'd be firing himself?

Uh, both he and the team president have categorically said that he will only be head coach THIS season (2022), and that they will conduct a full head coach search after the season is over. Maciocia has no interest in being a full-time head coach.

They should try and lure Condell away from the Cats. I'm sure many Cat fans would be happy for his "promotion". :smile:
