It doesn't matter if Bill took the year off emotionally or not... Every single one of us here would have traded missing the playoffs in 2006 to win the XL... So what if he didn't go out with a bang... The man IS the City of Pittsburgh

Sorry, Dynasty, but that's just the way I've seen it for the past 10 years or so around the Burgh. When I've read some of the post-game comments around here after the Steelers losses (both last season and this season) and see all of the brutally negative comments that kind of come from nowhere, it isn't hard to ascertain the age of the members who crafted them. I'm sorry if you took this personally, as my comments were certainly not directed at you. I have heard my comments echoed by others over the years, so I know I'm not alone in my opinion.

No you aren't alone - I certainly feel the same way. The majority of the younger crowd are just front-runners - they just want something to be able to talk smack about. But when they lose, they're nowhere to be found, or they only show up to bash the team. And it doesn't just happen with the Steelers, but with the Pens as well. I can't tell you how many young fans you see going to games now that were nowhere to be found before late January and the 4 seasons prior. Sorry, if you're going to be a fan of a team, you have to be there during the good times as well as the bad. There is no middle ground.

He gave us a chance to win it all in 10 out of his 15 years and was close to making the playoffs in 2000 and 2006.

Yes, he drove me crazy sometimes, but he was a great coach for us. That's why..if he chooses...he will be making $8 million a year in the next couple of years.

My prediction...he will be the Carolina Panthers HC within 2 years.

Two words: Tom Donahoe.

I really feel that he more then Cowher was to blame for the Kordell Stewart project. Not to say Cowher has no blame, but Donahoe was a terrible DOO. He went to Buffalo and they had 5 straight losing seasons. Speaks alot for how he ran a franchise.
