I am afraid that grabbing Cowher/JJ/Marty would be a bad idea. They'd have to assemble a coaching staff around them. And how compatible would our current roster be with what the new coach desires to put on the field?
It would be exciting at first. Then it would wear off, and the "Fire" threads would pop up more quickly than ever.
When was the last time a Super Bowl team had a head coach who specializes in offense? It seems they all came from a background in defense.
Well Wisenhunt was the Steelers OC and he just went to the SB and was a hair away form winning it. That's close enough for me, but you're right it hasn't been many in recent memory.
Holmgren was also an offensive coach that went to the SB and again lost to the Steelers though, but Holmgren's been a fantastic coach.
