bill cowher joke of the week pt. II
 
from tuesdays press conference:



Is there an advantage to playing a team that doesn?t have a lot of playoff experience?



"They have some players on there that have been in the playoffs before. Their coach has been there before. It is hard to say. We understand what it is like to play in the playoffs. It goes up another level. The speed of the game will go up faster, the intensity, the magnitude of each play becomes greater. Our preparation this week has to indicate that. It is hard to say, but there is enough experience over there to negate any advantage that we would have." :rolleyes:

Not sure I would call that a 'joke' exactly - its more like Cowher isnt even listening to what he is being asked.

Lets face it - the playoffs is not the time to learn anything constructive from a coach.

I think what Cowher is saying is that, yes, they are a young team, but there are guys on that roster who've been there before. Of course the playoffs are a different animal from the first sixteen games but those first sixteen are still beasts. If Cincy comes out and plays a solid, error-free football game, while forcing Ben in to some tough choices, well, all the experience in the world might not help. At some point, even on the smallest level, athletic ability and talent make a difference, espceially if there aren't mistakes. Not saying that the Bengals are more talented than the Steelers but I am saying that they have enough guys who can play to the Steelers out in the Wild Card round. Cowher is probably just doing all he can to keep his guys focused on 2006 so they're not "living in the past."
