This guy is about what STEELER football is about. Believe this quote and remember seeing this post. When the players finally fall into what this guy stands for and actually believes what he stands for, watch out. I think if this happens by mid season, we have a great chance to make the Super Bowl. I can guarantee a Steeler playoff spot this year. This guys track record is unbelievable and he shoots from the hip. I really like his mentality and he stands for hard work.

GO STEELERS!! SUPER BOWL BOUND...

Mike tomlin will be the key but we need to stay healthy and keep turnovers to a minimum if we have a shot at making it.

Track record = what he has done with teams in the past....just take a look. He took the Vikings D and put them on the map in one year. He has done this everywhere he goes...he makes teams better, not just better but much better. This is due to hard work ethic, understanding of the game, and the impact and beliefs he instills within his players.

You will see a much improved Steeler team this year. I promise you!!

Health and turnovers all come back to coaching, at least in a roundabout way. Staying healthy is about 98% conditioning and 2% pure luck. If you take the time to get your body in top form, you are far less likely to suffer any major injuries. Turnovers are all about the mental part of the game -- both in preventing them, and recovering from them. Teaching your quarterbacks to read the field properly limits INTs; instructing runningbacks and receivers to cover the ball with both hands, or carry it with the hand away from the action (and also switching hands in stride) results in far fewer fumbles. And making sure your players keep their heads in the game at all times means you are far more likely to return to good form following a turnover.

Cowher was a great coach and will be remembered as such, but after the XL win it just didn't seem like he cared anymore. There was no emphasis on offseason training, and his head never seemed to be in the game. When your coach is disconnected from what is happening on the field, no one on the field will be as good as they can be, either. It's a pretty clear relationship: he showed absolutely no emotions on the sidelines, and at the same time injuries and turnovers increased dramatically.
