Finishing the season
Here is a link on Whipple and how IF he gets the job, he will finish the season in Pittsburgh. As I wrote on the AOL Fanhouse, this will be an issue with nearly any NFL assistant. But if you hire the right guy it is worth the wait.
There continues to be rumblings of a mystery candidate. Speculation/guesses/rumors include Rob Ianello, Al Golden, Dave Clawson, and Jack Bicknell, Jr. The whole idea of a mystery candidate seems stupid to me. Why should the administration and their leaks in the media force intrigue into this process? Every possible name has been thrown out there on the blogs (including this one) or message boards. If someone is interviewed, why hide it? We all know about Whipple and Davie. Would coming out and listing the mystery candidate do that much damage to our process or his current job? I doubt it.
