I've said it a few times and I know it's killing some of my credibility on here because of how many are firmly against it, but...
Bill Cowher could be a perfect fit for us if he still has the fire.
His defensive philosophy (a pure attacking, zone blitzing 3-4) fits PERFECTLY with the strengths of our defensive players and the players would immediately respect him. He also understands that you need a franchise quarterback to compete for championships.
Cowher + Smith/Barkley = quick turnaround
My concerns are:
Does he still have the fire
Would he want FULL control, or would he want a GM so he could focus on coaching?
Who would he bring in as coordinators?
