Yeah, back in those days when going over the middle meant you were taking you life in your own hands you needed that kind of fiery coach to motivate players to risk their health for a first down. It's not like that anymore bro.
In regards to your comments about Gruden and Cowher... Speculation. Nothing more. Media hype. Until it happens it is simply you speculating what people want, and even if it were to happen we would still have to wait and see if they were effective. Look at all the former HC's of those years who tried to coach in this era... They all failed, including one of my favorite coaches of all time "The Tuna". Bill Parcells and his magic could not even fix the Cowboys.
Bill Parcells could not even make it in the front office, and myself and many others respect him highly. Look at the Jets and the Dolphins.
