Good post, but slight correction: Cowher wasn't on the Steelers' staff - he was hired from KC (where he was Schottenheimer's DC).
Hey, if the Steelers had adhered to McNair's unnecessarily restrictive criteria, they wouldn't have hired Cowher (since he had never been a head coach). Same for Tomlin.
Thank God the Steelers' FO is smarter than that.
