More Cowbell Posted August 6, 2021 Share Posted August 6, 2021 1 hour ago, Barry McCockinner said: Over his tenure Cowher had 6 different offensive coordinators. If you want to credit them for getting the most out of mediocre QB's, at a minimum you should credit him for selecting the best offensive coordinators. In the 5 years prior to Cowher the Steelers averaged 7.6 wins per season, had one wildcard appearance, and one playoff game W. In the first 5 years with Cowher the Steelers averaged 10.6 wins per season won 4 division titles, had 5 playoff appearances, won 4 playoff games and had 1 superbowl appearance w/Neil O'Donnel at QB. They had 2 different OC's during that time. He immediately turned the Steelers around from an average-below average team and made them a perennial superbowl contender with mediocre QBs. Show me another coach who has done that. I'll bet you can count them on one hand. Ok, fair point on OC. I'm still not sure how much credit I would give Cowher for the rest.
