Most Absurd statement Super Bowl night.

At Haltime Bill Cower said that he would put Alex "Check Down" Smith in so they can maximize the amount of snaps in the game. Only Marino looked at him like an idiot and said "Smith has not played for 11 weeks..there is no reason to think he would be an improvement!" well said Dan.

If anyone thought Cower would be an improvent of the mediorcre coaching success the Panthers have experienced and not just another Seifert then you are mistaken.

Guys here forget that Cower missed a few playoff games with the Steelers..he missed the playoffs 5 times the last 9 seasons..

Guys here forget that Cower missed the playoffs quite a bit with the Steelers.

Yeah that statement showed that he is out of touch with todays game. Imagine if he was our coach and replaced Cam with Anderson. Can you say Huddle implosions.

Not a Cowher fan but tbh he did say "Putting it out there as food for thought". He didn't say he would do it, just putting out what a lot of people were thinking.

He qualified it after Mario scoffed his remark..if you make the statement..you would consider it.

And no one was thinking Alex Smith was the guy to bring them back..David Carr fans maybe?

CK wasn't exactly lighting it up and the time he brought this up. Saying you are thinking about it, isn't the same thing as saying you would do it. Are you saying that even briefly the thought didn't at least cross Harbaugh's mind?

If he benched CK in the Super Bowl when he was not at his sharpest for Alex Smith who is capped physically, it would be the closing of the 49ers window..in the game and the franchise future.

You stick with the QB who has won big games including the NFC championship game that they were down in. CK is a dynamic player and can put points up in bunches which he did.

We are not talking about a Delhomme after the 3rd int-fumble..against zona...thats when you hit the bench immediately.

Hmm.. how to put this. No one is saying CK should have been benched. Have you ever had a thought, and was like ... "Nah that's a bad idea"? As a studio analyst you bring up stuff like that even if probably no coach would have done it. Alex Smith wasn't playing horrible before the injury.

Making the playoffs every other year is hardly a criticism. If I told you Rivera would average a playoff appearance every 2 years would you take it?

But you really have to do mental gymnastics to use this stat.

He made the playoffs 4 out of the last 6 and 10 out of 15 overall including 6 years in a row. He was one of the best coaches in history and a future hall of famer.
