We just never seem to be prepared for that final stretch game to get to the SB. Either the game plan doesnt work and we cant adjust at half time, or the players just dont perform. Obviously he cant control the players on the field in terms of how they do that day but the game plan just never seems to work in crunch time in january.
I agree. I think that's his greatest downfall. Look at last year 15-1. Then we got sloppy. I don't know what it is. Maybe when Cowher's game plan doesn't work he doesn't adjust well. Just something falls apart.
