Default Coach Cowher Eligible for HOF in 2012

So what do you think?. Does he deserve it...he's eligible at the same time as Bill Parcells....I've always been a HUGE fan of the chin....but as a Steeler fan, I'm biased....149-50 record or so I think....So what do you think....Does he deserve to be in the hall, and does he make it? I'm hoping yes and yes!

He may get in at sonme point, but I wouldn't think as a first ballot. He only won one super.bowl. Traditionally coaches who get in usually have a lot more wins or , in this day and age, multiple SB wins. I think Bill should be in the HOF, but not right away.
To illustrate my point, I am sure Dawson and Bettis will again be finalists next season. Do you think Cowher is more deserving of the honor than Dirt or Bus.? I don't.

Too many losses in big games. Food for thought: Tom Flores and George Seifert won twice as many Super Bowls as head coaches as Cowher. He's going to be a tough sell for the Hall of Fame. However, he's remained very visible as a commentator, so that may work in his favor the way it did for Madden.

I'm not convinced that his resume is complete yet. I think he will be coaching in the NFL again within a few years.

This is the same coach that stuck with kordell stewert for how many seasons? agreed, too many big games lost. getting to the afccg doesn't cut it to get in the hall. he needs a second stretch with at LEAST another ring to be a HOFer. His lame duck last season as the steelers coach still leaves a sour taste in my mouth

Add forty losses to your total and you're closer.

Bill Cowher would have had at least 2 more rings with BR7 as his QB the whole ride...The mid to late 90's steelers were much better than either of Tomlins SB Teams..

Cowher can't carry Parcell's jock strap. He might deserve to make it some day
but no way on the first ballet. Lost way too many big games, feasted on a lot
of easy games vs. div. patsies.

I agree that Coach Cowher's resume is not yet complete. However, I believe he has already earned a spot in Canton. Three losing seasons in 15 yrs (6-10, 6-10, 7-9), one 8-8, always got more out of the talent that he had than any other coach could. (I'll debate Belichik (SP?) 'til the cows come home)

I don't subscribe to the belief that head coaches (or QBs for that matter) win or lose games. The only difference between post season games and regular season games is how long we (the fans) remember them. Otherwise they are four 15 minute quarters, just like every other game.
