Re: Tampa contacts Bill Cowher

Mixed emotions on this one. I never liked Cowher too much for whatever reason but he has proven that he can win.
Did you bac see Gruden campaigning for the inevitable future HC opening in NYC?

Re: Tampa contacts Bill Cowher

Pretty amazing, Tampa giving up on Morris so quick??? I mean, it's not like he has all that much to work with, they are going through a rebuild...

Re: Tampa contacts Bill Cowher

I don't like this coming out on gameday! Why the hell would they leak this right before a game, unless they are trying to send a message to Morris? Cowher has said, a thousand times already, that he will not consider a job, until the season is over, and unless the job has already been vacated. This seems like a bunch of hot air to me. Intended to inflate a shriveling balloon that is the Bucs.

Re: Tampa contacts Bill Cowher

I thought he was going to Chicago, Washington, or was it Cleveland??? It seems every team out there is mentioning his name this year. Geez. He was a good coach and all, but how many Superbowls did he win exactly? One I believe. Shanahan has two, Gruden has one, so out of the three, it seems that Mike should be ahead of the group.

this is the issue i have a problem with.......

you cant expect to be great at any job after only 5 months

this has always been my opinion but keeping a coach for less than 3 years is not giving the coach adequate time to do his job correctly and to the best of his ability

a coach needs 3 years to get his players and coaches in.....and to get his system installed

after that, kick him to the curb.....but until then you cant ask a coach to make diamonds out of dirty tissues

Re: Tampa contacts Bill Cowher

this would be very surprising-
they let Morris clean house with vets and then bring in his own QB. Hiring Cowher would set them back another year, so I say go for it

Re: Tampa contacts Bill Cowher

It seems their efforts to trade for an AFC coach, a la Gruden, were unsuccessful .

Re: Tampa contacts Bill Cowher

Agreed on the previous posts ... but if Cowher is an upgrade and he's now willing, then why the heck not?
