PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh's powerful oversight board has much more influence on the day-to-day operations of the city than the average citizen realizes, this news source has learned. Among numerous other oversight functions, the board meets on a weekly basis during football season at Heinz Field to review the previous week's Steelers game and to "make adjustments" in the team's play. "The Steelers have a contract with the Sports and Exhibition Authority, and the oversight board oversees that body," said board member Sister Grace Geibel.

"I spend a full day each week going over that playbook and meeting with the coaching staff and players to make sure things are done right," said Sister Grace.

The Oversight Board is widely credited with guiding the team to the Super Bowl last year. Pictured above is former board chairman John Murray going over plays with Troy Polamalu the week before the Super Bowl.

Sister Grace is among the candidates rumored to be in line to take over the head coaching job if Bill Cowher retires at the end of the season.
