Cowher a Hall of Famer?

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Mon Feb 06, 2006 7:37 pm

Sean Salisbury was commenting after the game about Cowher being a Hall of Fame Coach. I'd have to agree with him, but I'd like to hear what the cafe thinks about Bill Cowher's chances at becoming a Hall of Famer. Discuss. ;-D

He has to be out of the league for 5 years, so no, hes not a HOFer yet.

Seriously, he will get in. Longevity, SB win, lot of playoff appearances, and good overall record.

Salisbury said he was a HOFer before the SB, I disagree. I don't think he would have been concidered if he never won a SB. Now that he has one under his hat, he's a shoe in once he decides to retire...concidering he's in his 40's that might be awhile. :-b

Definitely a HOF coach. Good enough not to be fired for, what, 15 years? Some guys can barely make it out of 1.

The image, the persona, the team, and now a SB winning coach. I doubt they will keep him out of the Hall.

It's hard to say how much the coordinators and staff have to do with their success, though. :-?

If Madden got in, Cowher needs to be in the HOF for sure.

Salisbury's right, now that the Steelers got a Super Bowl under their belt, he deserves a HOF spot.

I think that he would have been a hall of fame coach even if he never won a Super Bowl.

I think he needed this Super Bowl to get the Hall pass. Other than Marv Levy, who made the Super Bowl bid four years straight, I can't think of any coaches in the Hall who never won a title in the NFL.

Bud Grant & George Allen are 2 HOF coaches that never won a title.
