    It took Bill Cowher 2 years to win a Super bowl once he got a franchise QB. You expected him to win one with Neil O'Donnell, Kordell Stewart, and Mike Tomczak? Nice.
    Hey Sherlock are you talking about the same Franchise QB that old Billy Boy didn't want. And where in the SB rule book that states that you have to have a franchise QB not to choke away championships....
    I guess Dilfer, Flacco, Jim Mc or Brad Johnson coaches didn't get that memo.

    Dalton looked AWFUL for most of the game and STILL completed 25 passes!
    He threw almost 50 passes. he went from 78% the week before with an 8.5 yard average to 56% with a 6 yard average.
    And if our rookie 7th round pick gives a semblance of coverage Eifert doesn't go 61 yards. Course if we don't fumble it away they don't even have the ball to begin with.

    Cowher inherited a 5-11 football team. Slice it any way you want. It was a bad football team he got. And he didn't have a franchise QB. Big difference.

    Bubby wasn't the answer that's for sure

    Right....and the one who listed Barry Foster as a great player Cowher inherited ignores the fact that he had less than 700 combined in 1990 and 1991. It was Cowher who inserted him as the starter in 1992 (1690 rushing yards).

    Cowher inherited a losing football team with a good number of young talented players. Cowher pulled the strings nicely and pushed them in the right direction. But, the cupboard was not bare when Cowher arrived, merely mismanaged by a coach who was ready to retire.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    And Tomlin inherited an 8-8 team. So what?
