Former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach, Bill Cowher picks the New York Jets to upset the Steelers at Heinz Field on Sunday.
Cowher, although still pro-Steelers has had a history of predicting the Steelers to lose in big games.
Cowher could be doing this for a variety of reasons such as:
1. He doesn’t want Mike Tomlin, his successor to win 2 Super Bowls in 4 years when he only won one Super Bowl in 15 years
2. He’s trying to add a little extra motivation to his former team since they typically play better as underdogs compared to favorities.
3. He’s trying to add a bit more spice to the game since he currently anchors for CBS.
4. He’s trying to “get in good” with the New Yorkers and their media since Cowher has publicly admitted his desire to coach the New York Giants.
This is all speculation but regardless, it makes you wonder…
The AFC Championship Game is set for 6:30 est time, Sunday, January 23rd in Pittsburgh.
