Where I disagree is we need to remember that just last year, he took his team to the NFC title game. And this year, the Jets just missed the playoffs.
I'm sure Mangina thinks the same after that last int. and then getting canned.

Cowher knows enough to stay away from any hornets nest where self centered players like Favre, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, etc are.
What's strange about taht is Favre didn't have a reputation for being aloof in Green Bay.

Favre only walks on rose petals in Green Bay.

Well, when I gave my opinion that Farve was not exactly a team player and I considered him a "me" guy, everyone here jump down my throat. Well, well, well, look what we are hearing from players like Thomas Jones who from what I have heard has never been a trouble maker: Farve is "distant." Farve should have been benched due to his throwing INTs." "Farve's mistakes were ticking me off." Etc, etc, etc. Farve is not exactly the patron saint of the NFL that his fans portray him to be. Besides, he NEVER wanted to go to the Jets. He wanted to stay a Packer. Of course, that was a nasty split.

I highly doubt that was Cowhers reasoning. Sounds like the media once again stirring up BS. Nobody stops to think that maybe Cowher doesn't want to coach anyhere in the NFL in 2009.

Cowher isn't going to play head games with that ego maniac & they all know it. It's refreshing to know that Bill isn't joining the Favre circle jerk.

Wouldn't have mattered anyway. Jets needed help they didn't get.

They lost their shot in Seattle.

I think that it's more Cowher doesn't want to coach in 2009 than it's Cowher doesn't want to coach Brett Favre.

However, can't blame him for not wanting to coach Favre for the following reasons:

1. Favre is a very stubborn person who will make the deep throw into triple coverage more often than the 5-yard out route that's wide open.

2. Favre is old and won't be playing much longer, if at all. I doubt Cowher wants to go to a team where he'll be searching for a new QB after a season or two.

3. Favre played horrible down the stretch this season. Yeah, it was because of injury which means Favre's body could start to be breaking down due to the stress it takes from playing QB in the NFL.

4. I doubt he wants to deal with the annual "Will he or wont he retire?" campaign put on ever offseason by the media and Favre himself, sometimes not until after the NFL Draft.

Cowher had a belly full of horribly inconsistent QB play with Kordella. He's not going to put up with that kind of crap for even one year.
