We are the most diehard Steelers site in the universe. Not a single person here mentioned Cowher’s name once for the most deserving Steelers to the HOF.

Cowher was a great coach, he’s a Steeler, so I’m happy for him—but WTF? Over Bill Nunn?

I’m concerned that this is bad news for Donnie Shell.

Bad news for Faneca and Shell likely because they won’t put 4 Steelers in. Mark the Steelers down for the Hall of Fame game

Love it. My childhood memories of watching him spitting and scowling on the sideline and those amazing defenses made me fall in love with football.

This means that She’ll won’t get in. He deserves it WAY BEFORE Marty shottenheimer junior. Cowher is the epitome of the hall of very good. Shit.

I believe the 15 members of the 100th anniversary class will go in sometime in September in a separate ceremony

Donnie Shell’s 40 year old crusty jock belongs in the hall of fame before Schottenheimer’s demon spawn.

I’m a Cowher guy
Wish he were still coaching the Steelers

That said I’m mildly surprised he got in.

My guy Jimmy Johnson much more HOF worthy.

Cowher isn't a HOF coach IMO but Cowher got us #5 and the team was setup for us to get #6 & #7. I believe his issues with his wife's health before he stepped down took his heart outta the game.

As a Steeler fan, I want the walls of Canton lined with former Steelers. Faneca, Ward, Greenwood, Shell, Russell, etc.
So congrats Coach Cowher and thanks for all the angst filled losses, memory-filled victories, the spit-flying, jaw-jutting , mean-eye glaring and post-game cheering while stalking the sidelines.

I salute you sir.

Can we PLEASE stop this. Cowhers wife was not diagnosed until like two years after he retired.
Was not a factor...

Cowher coached like Marty for much of his career. But, he never had a QB. Think about it...he had Ben for what...3 years. One of the years he was a rookie and his 3rd year he came back after that terrible motorcycle accident.

I have no doubt Cowher would have been less conservative with Ben at the helm over a longer period of time.

Congrats to Coach Cowher!

Cowher didn’t want Ben, he would have played the same conservative shit he always did.
Ben would have played out his contract and left in FA.

Congrats to coach Cowher. Well deserved. Probably one of the best coaches at doing more with less than any coach I remember. Great talent evaluator and very entertaining personality as a coach. One of the best coaches at putting together a staff. He brought in some great coaches & assistants to work under him. His teams were disciplined, however his players loved & respected him. One of his best moments was running Donahue out of town.

Always hoped he would get back in the league as a GM of a team versus broadcasting after his wife passed. I always thought his best asset was assembling teams, coaches and evaluating players. Football smart, great guy, great personality, long career as a player, assistant coach, head coach & broadcaster. Well deserved Hall of Famer.

Deserves all the accolades he gets and should be thought of as right up there with Noll in Pittsburgh lore. Congrats to one of the best!

Hard to say. Tony Dungy, John Madden, and Bill Parcells are all in the HOF and have similar resumes.

I would’ve said...no fucking way Tomlin is a HoFer. But with the addition of Cowher, the hall has really lowered the bar.
Tomlin will probably go in the same year as Kordell Stewart and Willie Colon. :roll:

It stands for Kill Cowher.....and after countless playoff disasters (normally in the title game) I wanted the motherfucker dead. It became clear Cowher would need a miracle to ever win a Super Bowl. Thank Christ he accidentally (against his "better" judgement) found it in Ben Roethlisberger.

Dunno. He has presided over three super bowl appearances and two wins.
