[QUOTE=teegre;1032859]The "Tomlin inherited a SuperBowl team" is only partially true.  

Cowher could only get that current roster to one SuperBowl, and Tomlin got them to two SuperBowls.  AGAIN...Tomlin had a franchise QB in place....Cowher never did till he got BR7..

Cowher inherited Noll's completely loaded roster (Greg Lloyd, Rod Woodson)... and if we are being even, well, are you saying that Cowher getting to the play-offs in his first six seasons due to Noll?  Loaded roster??? Our best record was 9-7 the prior 6 0r 7 years before Cowher took over..

Tomlin has the best winning percentage of any current coach, and  in his first five years... ugh... I'm tired.  There's a thread about this (around the time of Tomlin's extension). George Seifert did too, till he had to go with his own players....Tomlin is heading down the same path.
