(dont worry .... we all know kevin faulk was/is better)
Ok - dont want to get caught up in semantics on this one.
We can all go back and read the posts made in this thread.
My stance is that considering the talent at his disposal - and yes he has a big part in getting that talent in the first place - he lets his team down in the clutch moments of big games with his over reliance on dominating run.
We all know what he is going to do before he does it - its great fun to run all over average competition during the regular season - but come the playoffs you need to have a plan B because teams WILL take away your plan A.
Luckily if Cowher opens his eyes he will notice he has a player very capable of Quarterbacking his team to success by regularly passing on first and second down, to make teams second guess before stacking up against the run every 1st down.
