You are right though, Sherman was the absolute WORST offensive coordinator ever but Cowher can also be described as a dictator.
its like tomlin quickly saw as good as d. lebeau, the legend, was, he would be even better if he were allowed to run his own show as DC. lebeau seems born again, and tomlin is learning the steeler way of defense from an old master.

the best part of 97 against denver was l. kirklands interception of elway in the 1st quarter. i knew it was over then.

....and then elway to shannon sharpe on 3rd and 6 was the worst. despite kordell, that game was in our hands.
