Hmmm..... I like Bill Cowher. I think he is a very good coach. Ben Roethlisberger was amazing in 2004. The two of them are just great. I don't think after 2004 I could imagine Pittsburgh without them. Granted that may happen in the future, but let's hope not.

I know... it's gotten to where it's Bettis' or Hines are the icons of the team.... think that's making BC kinda pissy

I think Cowher has definitely slipped as the icon or main leader role. I mean as a fan if I had to say who I feel has a leadership role my first words would be Bettis and Ward also. Cowher is the main leader, but he isn't the first that comes to mind which in ways doesn't seem right because he is the head coach.

Bill Parcells of course. Bill Cowher needs to take over the place of the team leader or at least as one of them. Sure we do have some big stars, but if you ask me team leaders he should at least be included with Bettis and Ward. Problem is he's not.

I think a big reason is everyone looks at him as a Pro-Bowl coach... and not one that leads us to the big one... out of 5 AFCC's, we went to one, should've won and didn't...

True. If you look at the Patriots. Yes not my favorite team, but a good example. lol When you ask the same question you think Tom Brady, Willie McGinest, some others players, and Bill Belichick. Some may mention just Bill Belichick, but a lot mention him with a player or two. The point is the Bus and Ward don't have to be knocked out as leaders, but Cowher needs to join them.

My take on Cowher's out of color comment is I think Cowher just wants to maintain some control over Ben-mania, whether he's doing it because he's truly jealous or because he wants to prevent another Kordell (ego-wise), we can only speculate.

I don't think Cowher is the best with the media, but I'll take his overcontrolling versus the undercontrolling exhibited by others in the league like in Minnesota.

It was a poor answer to a poor question that was probably meant to be a softball, but I don't think there's a big hidden meaning there.

Between wanting, and settling, it's like this

Example #1: The Steelers WANTED Mark D'Onfrio

They SETTLED for Levon Kirkland.

Example #2: The Steelers WANTED Dan Morgan

They SETTLED for Casey Hampton

Example #3: The Steelers WANTED Michael Lewis, then they wanted Ryan Denny.

They SETTLED for Antwaan Randle El

Example #4: The Steelers WANTED Philip Rivers, then they wanted Deangelo Hall.

They SETTLED for Ben Roethlisberger

Sounds to me like we "SETTLED" for the right guys

I agree. I don't think it was some huge thing. I think maybe he wanted to put Ben in check a little. Kordell Era well we all know how difficult that was. If Cowher is trying to avoid it by all means please do lol. To be honest he could have just took the question the wrong way like the reporter was refering to Ben's comment or maybe he took it the correct way. I don't know I didn't see the actual interview.
