Cowher believes himself to truly be an elite coach. Why do you think he wants 10 mil a year? He thinks he deserves that.

So losing to Pittsburgh isn't even on his radar. In his mind, I'm sure he believes that a team he builds will not only beat the Steelers, but will contend for Championships perennially. I've always liked Cowherball. I think he was hamstrung by a limited budget at the QB posittion which is the only reason he didn't win 1-2 more SB's.

I'm actually inclined to concur with Cowher that he IS an elite NFL coach, therefore I also believe he will break "The Cleveland Curse", and take the Browns all the way. I think THAT challenge alone will be the thing that brings him to Cleveland (presuming they meet all his other prerequisites).

They certainly do have a fascination with all things formerly Steelers. Of course if the Jets sign him, following their own MO, it'd have to be a 20 year contract for 15 million a year, since they always overpay for too long for our former players...

Hilarious!

I almost want to miss the playoffs now. Cowher will give us the identity we want and will make things happen. Mangini lacks the balls to get it done.

I think for Cowher he also wants to say he owns part of a team somewhat, something that the Rooney's didn't want to give him.


I think he gets the rivalry, I flat out think he does. He's been on both sides of it, and understands why both cities hate each other. HUGE reason why II want him here is so we can quit being a joke and a thing of pity to Steeler fans and become the hated enemy once again. :)

This will sound stupid and very bias, but this could actually bode well for both teams. I'd love to see the Pittsburgh-Cleveland rivalry become what TOSU-Michigan was in the 70's during the 10 year war. It's a joke to me, that the biggest rivalry in the division right now is Baltimore-Pittsburgh. Cleveland and Pittsburgh seem just perfect to me for a division showdown that constantly decides the AFC North title. So much history with both franchises, both have large fan bases, both have been described as Blue collar.

They were teasing on CBS yet again.

something tells me he's going to go the highest bidder between Cleveland, Kansas City and some other team.

The team that gives him the most of everything is the one that gets him. Weve been saying that for months now.

As of this moment, there is only one team that is going to give him what he wants AND has an opening, and that's Cleveland.

But the situation in Washington is interesting. Zorn could get the boot. Jets and Cowboys winning big games yesterday probably keep those coaches in their spots another year.

KC is way too cheap to pay. Same with Detroit.

So as of right now, its probably going to be between us, the Skins and maybe the Iggles.

Cowher made it tough to read him on the pregame yesterday, I spotted him with a over his shoulder talking about his old team with Shannon Sharpe. I'm unsure of what to make of that. But at the same time, He's from Pittsburgh, coached there and won a super bowl there. I'd find it hard for him to ever trash it, and if he said a few good things about it, I'm more than understand where he's coming from. But, he's also never trashed Cleveland really, The Car Show, and him keeping seats from the our old stadium were in his office as two obvious examples.

As far as loyalties go, Being from Pittsburgh and coaching the Browns didn't stop Bud Carson from, uh, beating them 51-0, though he did feel bad about it after that game, saying he would've preferred it to be closer.
