Default Re: steelers playbook vs. O-coords vs. personnel

First let me say to tony hipchest this is a great topic. I'm surprised it got buried below some of the other threads.

I'm shocked that Cowher let the play book get like that. If the philosophy is no nonsense smashed mouthed football (with a dash of gimmickery) one would think you would not need a huge play book for that.

Having guys focused, not over thinking and executing will hopefully lead to more wins and another shot at the SB.

thanks yinzer. i thought it was a very conversation worthy, off season topic. kinda suprised it got buried myself.

i tend to agree that cowher didnt need a playbook busting at the seams. no wonder its so tough to get our rookies any playing time.

Just because they are watering it down doesn't mean it won't be as complex. First even though the book was of good size. Who is to say they didn't grab plays from it and work on it over and over again. We hear that the book will get watered down, and we assume that it was too complex for our team. I am not thinking that they studyed the whole book on a week to week basis. But who knows. I do know that "complex" book won us a SB.

But with taking away I am sure they will add. They need to. Bottom line is they need to go with their bread and butter plays sprinkle in a few wrinkles and be proficient without the fumbling bumbling stumbling INT prone errors that made our year go down the tube.
