Thread: If the Steelers Win the SB

  1. #1

    If the Steelers Win the SB

    Does this Tarnish Bill Cowher's stance as resident "hot coach guru". Mike Tomlin would have taken the same players to the Super Bowl in his 2nd yr. Is it a players thing or a great coaching thing. Or is it that he kept good assistants (Dick Lebaeu) meaning the Assistants were important in Cowhers run.
    I think Cowher should have struck while the iron was hot. His stock wont plumment but will drop a bit.

    85% to 90% of the Steelers roster was brought in by Cowher.

    My dog could have coached the Steelers to the Super Bowl with that friggn' defense.

    The 2008 Steelers defense has to be mentioned up their with the '86 Bears and the '00 Ravens as the best defense ever in the NFL.

    This decade?

    It's the Pats.

    As all-time franchises though, it's not even close.

    The Steelers have this one even with out another SB.

    Of course, I'm a Jet fan ... so I'm green with envy for either.

    Yikes. Cowher actually had pretty much nothing to do with any players brought in, Colbert doesn't play that game very well.

    Bettis is gone, Randle El is gone, Logan is gone, Hope is gone, Van oldenhoffawhatever is gone, Faneca Is gone, Harting is gone, Porter is gone, Haggans is gone, Foote may aswell be gone.

    Alot of the key players have gone in the last few years. We basically have an O-line of backups. And basically 1 carry over at LB (which is obviously pretty vital in a 3-4)

    Cowher is/was a great coach, don't get me wrong. He's over-rated for all the wrong reasons though. He's had more than a few chances, and finally got to cash in on one.

    This wont tarnish Cowher at all, imo. He (as he so much loves to say) is what he is. He plays smashmouth, and let's patience persevere. He's very smart with who he surrounds himself though.

    Steelers aren't losing to anyone with the way that defense is playing.

    I'm not totally against having my head up my own ass. So, I agree.

    Cogratulations on the very impressive win. I would tell you to not count your chickens before they hatch, but I couldn't even keep a straight face. I hope the Jets grow up one day and have a big boy defense like that. Chances are I'll be dead by then.
