What are the chances of getting Bill Cowher

54 posts in this topic

maybe if we hire omar khan.

don't know that cowher is the best or most ideal man for the job.

i'd rather have him that just about any coordinator, esp. D coordinator or that mike mccoy guy.

it just depends on how forward thinking he is and allows the team to become. if he sticks with a ground and pound run heavy scheme and isn't looking to take advantage of the rules protecting the passing game i don't think i'm all that interested.

i'm not interested in any brand of football that opts for ball control rather than scoring early and often and putting a ton of points on the board.

Thank you for that intelligent reply.

slim to none. he's been out of football a while and the game has changed significantly since he was winning football games. the only way i could see it happening is if, one, he demonstrates adaptability with his fundamental philosophies and, two, the offensive coordinator is innovative (but not full retard a la chudz) and given near-full command of his guys and playcalling while cowher calls defense. that's a symbiosis i'd be comfortable with, but i don't see cowher going for it.

that's right i said symbiosis.

Slightly better than getting Bear Bryant.

I don't think he'd come here would have to break the bank.

Unless we give him full control of the team

JR isn't shy to pay top coaches top money. He paid Seifert pretty damn well and then he made old Foxy the highest paid head coach in the NFL at the time.

JR will shell out the cash if he deems it necessary, those who say otherwise are morons. The only thing that JR is wont to do, is being hesitant to fire coaches before their contracts are up because of the idea that he's still paying them while they aren't part of the team. That fan assumed rational realistically only stems from Fox's situation and is, by no means, a recurring theme - so I don't really buy much into it either.

The long and short of it is that JR, in my opinion, isn't shy to dole out the cash for a top coach when he feels it's the best case scenario.

Forgot to list my reason for my above post.

It was basically calling anyone that uses the argument "JR won't pay for soandso coach because he's cheap!!", is a damned idiot.

Post-Seifert, I'm not so sure the argument is that dumb. Yeah, Fox ended up being at the top of the HC payscale, but he didn't start off being paid that well. It was only after he demonstrated success that JR paid him. If JR wants to sign a veteran coach in the league that's had success in the past, he's going to have to pay big right off the bat, and I'm not sure JR is ready to do that.
