He'll come here if he's being paid handsomely and if he feels that Mcnair will be committed to winning. The question is whether or not Bob Mcnair will put his salesman face on and take the necessary measures to lure him in here and convince Cowher that he wants him to build a dynasty for him in this city.
The only advantage I can see, of how Bob McNair sticks with a head coach to the very bitter end of the head coach's tenure here, is that it would make someone like BILL COWHER feel more at ease about taking the job.
Bill is not going to want to work for an owner who might pull the plug after a bad season or two.
McNair's greatest fault might be his best asset with trying to sell a guy like Cowher on being the next head coach.
If Kubiak assembled the offense and its weapons to the point that a defensive-minded coach, such as Cowher, could come in and basically capitalize off of Kubiak's labors for the past five years...then Kubiak will have served a wonderful purpose here: Setting up the NEXTguy to bring home the title for us.
Because let's face it...that's what we're in this thing for: A championship. And hopefully, a legacy afterward.
Cowher has been there. Done that. If he tells the players to do something a certain way, they won't be second-guessing him. He has a track record. You don't win titles and make the playoffs in the NFL as many times as Cowher has just because you stumbled into it. The coach knows what he's doing.
Our current coach doesn't. Great builder of an offense. Bad head coach.
