Bring in Cowher

Knee jerk reaction.

That's JUST what this team needs right now. Sheesh

How in the world would this be a knee jerk reaction? Fox has had ample opportunity to get us over the hump. His ultraconservative offensive philosophy is old and tired. He has made many calls for a run play when a pass play was warranted and vice versa, has been out coached badly for the last several years, has put together a staff that basically seems lost at times on both sides of the ball, has wasted a lot of good talent and potential, is obviously unable to inspire his team on to the next level, always has had a sub par defensive backfield, and got crushed by the Cardinals in nearly every phase of the game with arguably the most talented Panther team in franchise history.

Don't act like firing Fox can't be justified. Cowher had an off season or two, but has never been out coached so badly on such a big stage. His teams that make it to the post season may not win, but they are always prepared to put themselves into a position to win, and have not been embarrassed by teams that they really should have beaten, or at least played pretty much on an even par. Most importantly, Cowher is the master of motivation.

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.
