    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.

    TOMLIN TO INTERVIEW FOR STEELERS' JOB

    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
