    Very few of the above players were around long enough to help anyone win anything.

    This comparison is really not valid.

    What should be getting compared are the new players brought in by each coach that helped win games. That is probably what the so called MT/Colbert detractors are really concerned about.

    Those first few years, Cowher's team went to a SB, but really didn't win anything...

    The comparison is not who won what with the "inherited players"...the comparison is what happened after the inherited players left the team...

    Yep. This is what I've been saying..

    This has been a fun thread, maybe a bit pointless but nonetheless fun. But these last few posts gave me an idea.

    What just occurred to me was "How is it that if Cowher won with Noll's players, why did they not win before Cowher?

    In 91 7-9 In 90 9-7 In 89 9-7 In 88 5-11 Uhh! ????

    Okay! That does it for me with this stuff, onward to the Jets.
    Here we go Steelers Here we go!

    Tomlin took over an 8-8 team...it doesn't mean the players weren't talented...

    That 8-8 season a lot to do with Ben's performance as well. Prior to that season, Ben implanted his face on a car's winshield and almost died.

    Last season's 8-8 record had a lot to do with Ben's performance...

    As does this year's 0-4 record to date...

    Tomlin is losing his inherited team... how is that working out? And like I've said before and you always ignore: The 95 team was almost devoid of Noll's talent. I know you like to pick the 98,99, and 00 team and say that is what happened because Cowher lost his inherited team. But that is BS. They were mostly gone by 95'. Again 3 defensive players on defense in 95'. Tomlin had 8 of his defensive players from Cowher just a couple years ago. I know you'll avoid that and go on about those bad Cowher years. Those were also the years when Cowher was in a power struggle with Donahoe. Something else you'll avoid. It was also the time when the team had to let FAs walk because they couldn't afford them. Again you'll avoid that and put it on these phantom "Noll" players.
