We are also the Carolina Panthers, not the Steelers. Cowher is overrated. Look what Tomlin has done in 6 years. Hell, look what he did in 4 years. Give me a break. Cowher is a loud mouth, that underachieved for a decade and a half. Do not want.


Sure, give me Tomlin too. Except he's got a job.

Take a look at all the great QB's Cowher had and then tell me how he underachieved.

Who are all these candidates we are looking at that are likely to be better? Or maybe you think Rivera is better?

It doesn't matter, because JR is not going to hire him, but saying he wouldn't be a viable candidate is insane.

I just cant see Cowher as an upgrade at this point. I WOULD rather stick with RR.

You wouldn't be happy if we won 9 NFC South titles and a Superbowl in the next 15 years? That's what he did in Pittsburgh. Like him or not, his achievements are pretty dang impressive. Nobody is a sure thing but Cowher has a proven record of success and he always assembled a great staff of assistant coaches. I'd take him in a heartbeat.

Gruden won with Brad Johnson


and Ronde Barder, and Derrick Brooks, and Warren Sapp, John Lynch, and Simeon Rice. Oh, and Monte Kiffen, Mike Tomlin, and Rod Marinelli all on the coaching staff.

Wont bother discusssing the merits of a Cowher hire


If Richardson actually wants "to emulate Rooney" then he wouldn't even give Cowher a look. Rooney never hired retreads. The only guys he ever hired were defensive coordinators (kinda like we do).


Lets see...
Since 1995 the Panthers are on their 4th Head Coach, reportedly contemplating #5.
Since 1992 the Steelers are still on their 2nd and have no plans to make a move.
So your comparison is not a very good one.

I would take Cowher over Rivera in a heartbeat.


You'd have to be dense to think otherwise.

It took Bill Cowger how long to win a Super Bowl?


The 2nd year after he had a Franchise Quarterback.
Although he did go to 5 Conference Championships and another Super Bowl previous to having a Franchise QB.

That's fine you don't want him

But underachiever? We must be one of the worst franchises if what he did was underachieve. Does anybody even remember players from the early to mid 90's on the Steelers?

Cowher would be a GIGANTIC asset to this organization if he were brought on in any role. Anyone who thinks otherwise either hasn't watched football for more than a few years, or is mentally retarded.

Bill Cowher puts asses in seats, and would be a great seasoned coach for a young roster. Period.

U do know how many truly great coaches have never won a Super Bowl?

He won one. His teams were tough. His teams were respected. He had sustained winning seasons.

In 17 years what do the Panthers have?

It amazes me what people say about Cowher...when one of u coaches on here playing Madden win a ring then bad mouth the chin.

Unless you can show me an example of the Rooney family hiring a retread head coach, it's actually quite a good one.
