    Re: Cowher leaving Pittsburgh!

    I know it was speculated for weeks but I am a little surprised.
    He had a chance to make history and really be the face of Steeler football.
    Instead he threw in the towel.

    Well he did get a ring.

    Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Pittsburgh Steelers have requested permission to interview Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin.

    Tomlin also is a candidate for the Dolphins job, and could be a candidate in Atlanta.

    Though hiring Tomlin would require the team to replace its trademark 3-4 defense for the Tampa 2, the Tampa 2 is a variation of the Cover 2, which Tony Dungy learned as a player and assistant coach in Pittsburgh.

    And Tomlin fits two of the key factors that we believe are driving the decision.
    He's young, and he's African-American.
    The only knock is that he has no prior ties to Pittsburgh.
    But Peter King said during halftime of the Chiefs-Colts game that Dan Rooney isn't limiting the hire to a Pittsburgh guy.

    Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please. Mark Twain
