i dont think the difficulties in todays nfl will be an equalizer. not only does cowher have to try to live up to noll, he has to live up to belichick as far as being the coaching face of the nfl. but his longevity in the sport (say he coaches another 10 years) will definitely put him right up there in pittsburgh lore. i think if cowher wins 2 more sb he would be as regarded as noll is. hell people already wanna put belichick above noll and lombardi.

Its to bad that Cowher could possibly win three Super Bowl Trophies in Pittsburgh, and still only be the second best QB. Oh well life is good anyway!

I agree. I think Whis is just buying time. And think this ebntire BC thing is blown way out of proportion.

If Cowher still has several more years in him do you think It may be because he has deligated more of the control to his assistants over the last few years. I think he has begun to trust those around him and has relieved some of the coaching pressure that he had been under. A good HC surrounds himself with the best possible people and then lets them do their job with little interference.

I think Cowher has given more control to his assistants because they are good at what they do. but more importanlty in my opinion.... is because he has more control as a whole over the football team. When Donahoe was here, i think he ran everything and had final say on alll personel and decision making. I think Cowher has most of that pull now with the HELP of Colbert and they are able to work together.

The Rooneys extended Cowher's contract even after coming off losing years so i dont think that just becuase Cowher won a SuperBowl or because we went 15-1 the prior year that he was going anywhere. The Rooney's i dont think were going to let him go by thierr choice. They obviously believed in him and didnt listen to critics and disgruntled fans who felt that Cowher wasnt a fit for this organization and couldnt wait to get him out and blaming all failures of any kind soley on him. Good thing the Rooney's own this team.
