    First they dump Tim Lewis who has since signed with the Giants. Now their offensive coordinator, Mike Mularkey, has signed on with Buffalo as head coach.

    I like him and I hope he does well, but I think the Steelers needed a change as well. You don't have the players the Steelers have on offense and finish 22nd in the league.

    I wonder what OC's are available for the Steelers or if they'll promote from within?

    Nah, not yet anyway. He's a great motivator. He just needs offensive and defensive coaches that'll light a fire under the players asses as well!

    I agree with Moi. Since I dont see that happening...Charlie Weiss from NE and the DC from NE are both able to sign elsewhere I believe.

    Why would you get rid of a coach who is in the top 5 for wins since he became head coach? Over the last 12 years only a couple of coaches have more wins than Cowher.

    Seriously though, I don't think you can hold coaches to that same goal. Not to mention, Cowher has 'won' a helluva lot more games than McNabb. 1 Superbowl, 2 championship games and 4 division titles.

    Although I disagree he should be canned, I wouldn't be overly upset if they did fire him. Don't count on it though, Rooney doesn't have a history of firing head coaches.

    BTW - sorry Jackass, neither will the Giants!

    I agree Jim...but I definatley think the Steelers need to start new. Time for fresh blood in their.

    Janeen...the Cowboys over acheived this year. Next year their schedule gets much harder. I agree that they are in a very good position right now..but they arent getting to the SB either!!
