    You have been comparing them LONG BEFORE THIS THREAD. You give Cowher credit for Tomlins success, this is nothing new to this thread.
    If YOU are making a pro Cowher case, Cowher is fair game.
    You CANNOT mention Cowher REPEATEDLY as superior liken Tomlin to Switzer and then cry foul when someone used YOUR OWN ARGUMENT against you.

    Better yet Vader, lets play ball by your rules:
    YOU make your anti-Tomlin case without including ANY reference to the prior coach.

    How would "I" do it?

    If you are going to compare a current coach to a retired coach who coached TWICE as long you look at their record during the same span:

    It is SHOCKINGLY even IMHO. 1st 6 seasons:

    Overall record.


    Regular season: Cowher 64-32, Tomlin 63-33


    Playoffs: Tomlin 5-3, Cowher 5-6


    Division titles: Cowher 5, Tomlin 3


    Playoff appearances: Cowher 6, Tomlin 4


    Advance to divisional round of playoffs (final : Cowher 5, Tomlin 2


    Record in AFC championship game: Tomlin 2 wins 0 losses, Cowher 1 win 2 losses


    Super Bowl: Tomlin 1 win 1 loss, Cowher 0 wins 1 loss.


    Inherited quality core players.


    Cowher: Rod Woodson, Gregg Lloyd, Dermonti Dawson, Carnell Lake, Barry Foster, Eric Green


    Tomlin: Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, James Farrior, Aaron Smith, Heath Miller, Santonio Holmes
    More bull****. In the SB of 95 only 3 defensive players were left from Noll's era. That's Cowher's 4th season. In Tomlin's 5th season he still had 8 of 11 defensive players from Cowher's era. Cowher didn't miss the playoffs until 3 seasons later. Cowher rebuilt almost the entire defense BEFORE he made his first SB. Almost nobody is left from Noll's teams after the SB of 95. And they still make the playoffs the next 2 years. Then for the next 3 years the drafts suck. There is a huge issue with Cowher and Donahoe. Donahoe drafts Edwards over Cowher's objections and Cowher offers his resignation. Rooney allows Cowher more power and fires Donahoe.

    Also what year did Dawson make his first pro-bowl? I'll help you out. It was 1992. How about Lake? He didn't make a pro-bowl until 1994. Woodson didn't even play the entire year they went to the SB. As Cowher's players retire the team gets worse. Tomlin inherited 5 pro-bowlers and 2 possible HOFers on offense and 5 pro-bowlers and at least 1 HOFer on defense. Not only the quality but the quantity was in Tomlin's favor.

    All too easy. last 3 years. 12-4 and lost to the Tim Tebows (one of the worst teams to ever make the playoffs), 8-8, and now 5-7.

    Had he been hired 2 years ago, you'd have a point.
    But he wasnt, so you are not talking about Tomlin.

    You cannot make a remotely reasonable case to fire 4 time playoff, 2 time superbowl, one time champ, Tomlin without bringing up his predecessor.

    Where did I ever say to fire him. Just give me ONE quote. You can't so again you don't know what you are talking about. As usual with you. You throw out **** but can't back it up. Show me ONE quote and I'll apologize.

    So all these knocks on Tomlin are because you want to keep him? Interesting...

    I never said to fire him. Show me the quote. I don't think he is that great of a coach. As I pointed out. But I never said he should be fired. But keep up with the snide remarks.. interesting indeed.

    Its a logical conclussion given your constant criticism...

    Just like Cowher won with Noll's players...then had a few non-playoff seasons...
