Personally I understood every emotion Cowher ever displayed.

Yelling when he was angry and things were going bad, but also yelling when we played well.

It was like he was angry because he knew the team was good, and dammit we should be kicking the sh*t out of everyone on every play every week.

That's the way I act when watching the games.

When the Steelers are smashing someone, the better they play, the more kind of...I dunno angry/happy I get.

BC was a passionate football coach. He cared about his players, and his actions and words were not some act, some formula or strategy for motivating his players, it was real thought and real emotion.

Noll was always grim...had a scowl on his face the whole game.

He didn't rant and rave, but you could tell he was taking the thing seriously.

As he should have.

Laughing and joking while losing?

That's inexcusable in my book.

I don't think I need to add very much to this, and will allow this post to speak for itself.

Mike Tomlin, you have NO idea what you are in for as the Steelers' HC. You had better be dead solid perfect for the rest of your career and had better start ranting and raving on the sideline - even though it isn't your personality - or these fickle as hell fans will be calling for your head to be mounted on a flagpole.

Sonny Jurgenson(ex Redskins QB) said on the radio no coach was ever able to motivate him to play. He said it always comes from within. He said that his energy sometimes built up so much for very important games that when they finished them win or lose depending on how they won or lose his energy would be depleted for the next week. He said he observed that for the whole of team as well. He says he still cant explain why it happens. I think thats what happen to us. 2 Divisional games with the last finishing like it did. Poof no energy. The only reason they came back in the Jets game to take the lead was because they were the superior team.
