This guy is a dinosaur. Why do people want him?

How old is Coughlin? 63?

I'd take that dinosaur.

You're right.

Wait.

Belichik is 60 years old, Cowher is 55.

Hmmmmm.

Who cares? And by dinosaur I meant he's extinct. He was in a different era. He hasn't continued on like belichik

it's not his age that makes him a dinosaur.

it's his being a dinosaur that makes him a dinosaur.

Yeah, I don't really get that thought process.

Take any one of the Steeler's 9 Playoff teams under Cowher.

They would literally curb stomp the shyt out of what we put on the field last Sunday in Kansas City.

What the hell Cowher is only 55? Why did I have the impression he was like 70?

Hell he's younger than John Fox.

so would a lot of teams because we're playing poorly.

better than rivera? yes.

best man for the job? don't think so.

he's tried and true, but the game has been in the process of changing for several years.

i just don't think his brand of football is relevant anymore or at the very least is quickly on the way out. hes a ball control guy coming from the old school. he's a relic. maybe he can adjust. i don't know...but he'd have to if this team was to be successful and dominant. doing it the way he did for years wouldn't work for long, esp. if he didn't have lebeau running the D (which is what the true strength of that team was).

I think the Panthers have the talent to win immediately, and all they need is an experienced and competent coach. Therefor Cowher is on my list of about 10 guys I would like.

Still dont agree.

Since 2001 when the Ravens won it all 7 times in 12 Super Bowls attacking 3-4 Defenses have hoisted the Lombardi at the end of the Super Bowl. This is Cowher's bread and butter. This is completely relevant in today's game.

(All of the "but what about Dick Lebeau" herd take a rest as Lebeau was gone during Cowher's tenure 7 years from the Steelers.)

Now take a look at what Cowher had behind center until Big Ben finally arrived and you'll understand his offense.

Leadership, physical attack defenses and using your roster to it's fullest benefit is what this Panther organization needs.

it's what he wants his team to do with the ball on offense that troubles me.

Understood.

I sure would like to see where Cam and the Panthers would be right now if defense was emphasized and Deangelo Williams and Jonathon Stewart carried the bulk of the load while Cam was aked to pass ~ 20 times per game the first couple years as Ben Rothlisberger was.

Learn how to win, carry more responsibility as warranted. Big Ben is one hellova crunch time QB at this point in his career. Cam should be able to do everything Rothlisberger does and run a 4.6 40 while doing it.
