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.
Amen. That's what I've been saying.
We are going to become a team like the Bucs: Coach B wins a Super Bowl with Coach A's players.
After we win it all, we will spend YEARS discussing how Coach B isn't that great of a coach because he won with Kubiak's players.
Either way, I'll take it.
