Re: Thank God we have the Rooneys
The Marty firing, which apparently is due to all the assistants running for the exits after Marty was brought back for only one year guaranteed, supports the wisdom of not bringing back Cowher for a lame duck 2007.
Whether it was the idea of Cowher or the Rooneys (or both), congrats to whomever is responsible for not stepping into that trap. Who knows whether Tomlin will work out, but the process certainly was handled better than the way Dallas and the Chargers have handled their coaching changes - have to give credit to the Rooneys where credit is due on that point.
I omit comparing the Raiders coaching selection process because I regard the Raiders as no longer being a fully functioning professional franchise while Al Davis remains in charge.
