At the end of the day, after all is said and done, what's the difference between a coach that "isn't prepared, and doesn't win," and a coach that is prepared, but still doesn't win?

They're both losers.

Cowher's record speaks for itself.

he has a reg season winning percentage of 623 and a postseason winning percentage of 571, that spells winner to me.

In is 15 years as the steelers coach he had 3 losing seasons and one non winning season.

I'll take the loser that learns. Does Fox do that? This team is the same team for 7 years now. The only time it dominated on defense was when Del Rio was here. It almost feels like Fox has coasted on Del Rio's success.

it feels like it because he has. it's clear at this point that fox and trgo don't know how to make a dominate defense in game planning.

Not to mention, they dont have any clue how to use Peppers. Everybody on the team is a character player. Never playing to a players strength always making them blend into the scheme. i've said it before we do less with more.

You may be right about this, though I am sure many fans will refuse to admit it. I have thought this same thing, but have never been able to sum it up and put it all together until now. You just may be absolutely right.

No way do I ever want Cowher. This guy want to be GM beside a coach if he was to take over. Beside, I don't want to wait like 10 or 15 yrs. to win a Superbowl. Do some of you guys really want to wait that long for one? :mad:

Not happening, nor should it.

Trgovac should go, but not Fox. And I'm not a big fan of starting completely from scratch coaching wise after a season like we just had.

Good points. Also Cowher's teams had plenty of playoff meltdowns before the SB win.

10-15 years with this group won't give us anything.

Cowher had a bunch of Delhomme QB's for much of his career. Had one of those guys panned out, Cowher would have a few more rings.

I'll tell you the difference.

The coach that "isn't prepared and doesn't win" takes the blame for that loss. It is his fault that his team did not performe well. He may have the better team talent-wise, but his lack of preparedness ruins it.

The coach that "is prepared, but still doesn't win" has a problem with the players on the team. However, regardless of the talent, his team still comes out with the same intensity every single game. You have no instances of peak performance one week followed by absolute dogcrap the next. The thing with this type coach is that . . . the players can be changed.

Cowher also had 2 of the CARDS coaches on his staff

A Coach is only as good as the coaches he surrounds himself with
