    THE CHIN IS IN
    pft.com

    Former Steelers coach Bill Cowher wasn't unemployed for long.


    As it turns out, Cowher will be back to work later this year, as the newest member of The NFL Today on CBS.
    And here's the kicker -- no one is getting the boot to make room for the Chin.

    But how can that be?
    Will CBS use a five-man set?
    Or will one of the guys currently with a seat at the grown-ups' table be "reassigned" to handle interviews or features or something else that will remove him from the regular discourse?

    Our guess?
    (And it really is just a wild guess.)
    Shannon Sharpe (a/k/a Sharparo) was in real danger of being "outplaced," but CBS opted not to make Shannon the second Sharpe brother in less than 72 hours to be fired from a network gig.
    When NBC hired TiVi Barber (nod to reader who suggested the nickname), Sterling's career was, well, tarnished.

    Ironically, it was Sharparo who jokingly tried to talk Cowher out of taking a TV gig when he did what apparently was an on-air audition for the job, during a segment of the four-hour Super Bowl XLI pregame show.
    Sharparo reminded Cowher that talking on the boob tube doesn't pay the same as being a coach or a player.
    In response, Cowher said, "I can't lose a game up here."

    If they don't move one of the guys from the big desk, then the move affects all of the analysts (Cowher, Sharparo, Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason) equally, because it will give each one less time to hear himself talk.
