Very true. I mean what more could you expect from Ben. He took us on a wild ride and gave new hope in Pittsburgh for a good QB. Couldn't agree more. All cannot be put on Cowher. Players didn't play up to the level they should of. But it seems the bottom always falls out at the worst time. Why? Who knows. Unfortunately Cowher will be the one getting the heat.
