If Tomlin cont to win he will join them.. I hope he does thats for sure
I was no big fan of Cowher.

With him it was basically get a lead, then play Martyball , settle for FG's and hope the defense can hold on.

The thing I remember most and what defines Cowher for me is when Ben, his second-year QB said to him in the middle of the SB, "Coach let's play to win, let's not play not to lose"

When a second year QB says something like that, then your coaching style is both questionable and noticeable.
Frankly, between that and his pet project -- Kordell, I really couldn't wait for Cowher to go.
