    I liked what Fisher said today about blowing opportunities. He gave out some credit but quickly pointed out mistakes. I don't think we'll see him using the kid gloves this season.

    Ok let me understand this...

    Cowher retires after the 2006 season.

    The titans go 6-10 and fisher is fired.

    Steelers go after a coach who has won just won 15 games in 3 seasons?

    No way! They will hire from within.

    Ewker...

    Keep thinking what?

    What kind of post is that?

    IF, IF we have the 6-10 type season many here think we will have fisher will be fired. IF, IF cowher does decide to retire to North Carolina the steelers will replace him with a protoge of his not a coach who has had three successive losing seasons.

    What about that do you disagree with?


    FYI, cold pizza just showed the $2.5M home the cowhers just purchased near Raleigh North Carolina. Both Cowher and his wife went to North Carolina State and they have family and friends down there. Maybe he will retire after this year.

    At this stage in our rebuilding phase if we go 6-10 it would take a special kind of idiot to fire Fisher.

    Name me the coach who could have done better with our team over the last 3 seasons:fish:

    Childress...

    A better question would be to name any coach that couldn't have done what fisher did the last 2 years. Anyone could have coached that team to 4 wins last season. Anyone! He did a horrible job!

    And if we don't do much better than that this year he deserves to be fired and probably will be.

    Note that I did not predict a 6-10 type season. I think we will win 9 games but don't go tell me what a great coach he is if he has three straight horrible seasons.

    Name any good coach in this league who has had 3 straight losing seasons.
