Your dang right they do and unlike other teams, the owners in Pittsburgh give Cowher alot more respect and freedom than most. I don't think the staff and coaches saw much more in Duce than we saw in the preseason games. If you have competition for a spot like we had at RB, everyone plays their best on game day, not in drills at camp. Coaches and staff watch what happens on the field and weigh that heavily into decision making. Owners look at what they spend on a player and want to see high paid players earn it. The only thing that still has me confused is why they would show so much loyalty to Duce? The guy was in Philly for the best part of his career.
