Cant argue with somebody for voicing thier opinion. But who the Hell would you want to hire? Like I said know head coach can gaurantee a ring. Even Belichek couldnt win in Cleveland. I think firing a coach for making the playoffs year after year, really sucks. Give the guy a friggin break. He wants a ring way more than even we do. We are lucky o have him!

Gameplanning. OKAY.

Intensity? You cant teach intensity. Name me a more intense coach anyway? The players must be held accountable.

hmmmm......well i never thought about that. i don't know, with me it's what have you done for me lately. sounds dumb but i rather see them win a superbowl then win a shitload of regular season games, but i have nothing against him, i like watching him get pissed at the players or the refs pretty damn funny the way his face looks when he's pissed off. he'll get it done sooner or later and it's not always the coaches fault when we lose, he's not out on the field throwing the ball.

Cowher produces a good team every year
Not all coaches can do that, plus the players respect him
Keep him on board as long as he wants

It is a what have you done for me lately type of business yes.. but Cowher has had more success than any other tenured coach even close to him w/ overall records. He's as intense as ever so I dont really have a problem with him. He does tend to over coach now and then and be alittle stubborn, but all coaches do that.

He's the right fit for this team, as long as the players continue to respond to him and his coaching style, he's not going anywhere.

I've blamed the players as long as I can...Intensity isn't necesarily measured just by how high the players jump before the game starts, but in how they play every down of the game. The Steelers came out flat in the AFCCG last year...whose fault is that?

The same can be said for '01 AFCCG as well.

Thier own fault!

How pumped where you for that game? I know that your a huge Steelers fan, so I know you were as jacked as I was! You couldnt tlak to me the morning of the game. If you were a cleveland fan that I live around, you knew better than to bust my balls that day. I couldnt sleep the night before. I was almost shaking, and sick to my stomach by kickoff. I was friggin stoked. If I were intense, and you were intense. Then why the frug wouldnt they be. This was the right to play in the superbowl. These are grown men. They played junior high, high school, college, and now pro. They know how to turn it up.

Did anyone ever think that just maybe, just maybe. We were beat by a better team. The Pats have just won 3 of 4 superbowls. Its not like it was a cake walk. Maybe it wasnt Cowhers fault. How many other teams have won 3 of 4 bowls? NONE. This is a damn good team.

Cowher turned a 6-10 team into a 15-1 team in just a season. Pretty friggin great, if you ask me.
