Maybe if Porter worked a little harder on the field instead of flapping his big yap off the field, he would have put in a better season. Remember - Porter was supposed to be a leader, not a follower.

No disrespect intended, moe, but what is it with some of you people putting the blame on Cowher for every little thing? Porter had a duty to his team to perform on that field and he failed miserably last season - can't get much plainer and simpler than that. He wasn't the only one whose play last season could be called into question, but he was right up there at the top of the slacker list, imho.

I know, did Cowher hold him back or what? Or did Dick decide it is time to change a little?

coincidentally enough, after i wrote that last night, i read this this morning:

Quote:
"He's allowing us to be adults and professionals," safety Ryan Clark said. "He said he wants to see your attitude, and that means, 'I'm not going to handcuff you and make you a certain type of player. You do what I'm trying to get across, but you do it in your way.' "

Clark is a big fan of such coach-player reciprocation.

"When you get a coach that tries to handcuff players, when things are going good, they're going to be good," he said. "But when they start going bad, I think you can turn on a guy who you feel handcuffs you or limits you as an individual."

The Tomlin Era Steelers, apparently, will continue to be a team comprised of individuals.

That's a foundation worth maintaining.
seems like the handcuffs coming off has been a popular theme. im not sure if clark was referring to cowher or not, but i often wondered if whiz being unleashed drove our sb run in 2005. ben seems happy to be allowed to call his own protections now also. it seems alot of the micromanaging will be gone now.

I like the changes to our D too....Keisel could be an animal if he were allowed to roam....but I think Woodley will be groomed for the position, and return the STEELERS D to Steel Cutain status.

Agreed Duke! Also, how uplifting to have an exciting thread like this! Agree with some before who tout Woodley. Also, jazzbird, haunting post!

As much as a lot of us liked Cowher, it was clearly time for a change. He seemed so disinterested in the season last year -- not once did he get fired up at a bad call, or get in a player's face for screwing up. That's not the same beast I remember shoving pictures of a play into a ref's breast pocket out of anger at halftime.

I love what Tomlin is doing so far; by letting a player have certain freedoms on the field, you actually challenge them further because they are now thinking beings rather than programmed robots.

I do hope Tomlin won't coddle any players. Cowher clearly had a deeper relationship with Peezy than he did with most other players, and it showed favoritism at times. I hope Tomlin will be the "gentle leader" while still ruling with an iron fist.

Don't forget that it's a milestone year, too (team's 75th anniversary). We come out big in milestone years. Think about it: We've played in Super Bowls X, XXX and XL (all we missed was XX). We were also a tipped pass away from making the Super Bowl the year of the NFL's 75th anniversary in 1994-95 (lost 17-13 to the Chargers in the AFC Championship).
