I wonder if Steeler fans were losing their patience with Cowher then. Mike Tomlin deserves the same amount of patience. But it won't be given to him.
You kidding? A very sizable chunk of the fans were calling for Cowher's head around 1998 or so and it didn't stop until he finally won the SB in '05. The Rooneys have patience, the fans in general are another matter.
