View Full Version : Cowher says Jets will win; so does Obama

The former Steelers coach and current CBS analyst was so impressed with the Jets’ win over the Patriots he said Rex Ryan's team will win again in Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship on Sunday.

“I’ll tell you what, Pittsburgh may have some issues this weekend,” Cowher said in an interview on WFAN . “The way the Jets are playing, I’m telling you this is going to be a game, I think it will be a classic game, and I like the Jets. They made believers out of me with what they did. They match up well, I think it’s going to be a tough ballgame, but they certainly have all the ingredients to go to the Super Bowl.”

To do that, Cowher said he believes the Jets cannot be deterred by the Steelers’ top-ranked rush defense that allowed 1,004 yards this season -- 437 fewer than the Bears, who ranked second in the NFL.

“(Jets offensive coordinator) Brian Schottenheimer has to be patient enough to run the ball against the Steelers,” Cowher said. “You may not have success, but that will slow down (LaMarr) Woodley, that will slow down (James) Harrison; that’s the best pass protection you got is getting those guys to respect the run. Shorten this game, if you can keep Ben Roethlisberger off the field like they kept Tom Brady and Peyton Manning off the field, that’s the best defense you have.”

The Jets upset the Patriots in the AFC Divsional round with a defensive scheme that puzzled Brady and New England’s offense. Cowher said he’s never seen Brady “more dumbfounded.” But it was the trash talk that Ryan and his team threw the Patriots' way that could have been the difference.

“There’s no question in my mind that the New York Jets got under the skin of the New England Patriots; you saw it the whole game,” Cowher said. “They were chippy, they were frustrated, all the talking got to them. I believe that. They lost the composure and I never thought I’d see a New England Patriots team do that.”

Cowher before the game said in a conference call with reporters that the mouthy the Jets had wakened "a sleeping giant” with all their talk.

Jets really impressed him with that win over the Pats, so either he really believes his old boys are gonna lose, or he's trying to fire them up. Either way Cowher hasn't been on point at predicting games at all, so whether he says Steelers or Jets to win, doesn't mean a whole lot to me lol

Cominf from a coach who choked 4 different times in AFCC games. He's as credible as asking the "8" ball toy who's gonna win.

I hope he is trying to fire up his old boys , because I can't believe he really thinks the Jets will win .

If I were him and I thought so , I wouldn't even say it , respect !

Show confidence in your ol team .

It's the steelers game to win ,It's the steelers game to lose .

If they play the way we can , the steelers win .

I think it's both A and B lol

This is a winnable game for Tomlin meaning that he has a chance to hold more rings in 4 years then Cowher ever did in 15 and he's doing it with some of Cowhers guys too (Randle El, Foote etc.)

I was smoked when he was at that hockey game working that stupid siren and i'm even more pissed with those comments. I would like to think this is just a psychological tactic to rally his old, (and home) team...but I doubt it. He's too stupid. :willybs:

I don't really blame him. Right now he's supposed to be a non-biased analyst. It's a tight match, and it's going to be a close game. You have a lot of people saying the Jets will win, and just as many saying the Steelers will. By saying he thinks the Jets will take it, he's just trying to solidify his credibility. He doesn't want to look like he's playing favorites, and I can't fault him for that when his job is to be objective.

yeah, nobody honestly cares what BC thinks anymore. He's a TV guy now, nobody ever cares what they think. Thanks for the ring and trophy Bill, long since moved on.

The Jets are playing on borrowed time, you barely beat the colts and then you are minutes away from losing to the Patriots. I give them credit for pulling out the wins, you can't deny that. But lets not get crazy here now thinking they are some type of team of destiny.

Cowher is just keeping the steelers focused.. we thought for sure we were playing the unbeatable pats... now we get what was the easier game, even farrior was rooting for the jets. so we are at home with the jets and cowher is trying not to be the homer and making sure we stay focused... last week all the media idiots were picking the ravens... cowher picked the steelers.

one game baby... we will kill them.. they may have the CB's but we have the dominant front seven...

Why is everyone hating on Bill or any former Steeler who doesn't pick the Steelers to win? I'm sure they all root for the Steelers to win, but if they feel that the other team is going to win, then what's wrong with that? Do you really expect them to say the Steelers will win every game they play as long as they live?

"The two interceptions led to their only scores in the second half. Other than that, I thought we played an excellent football game in the second half. That's the game of football--big plays. They made them, and we didn't."
-Steelers Head Coach Bill Cowher

If only he was more conservative in SB XXX. Dallas D looked tired. I thought the OL and Bam was taking it to 'em. Who was wide open down the field that O'Donnell didn't see? Mills? Or was it a conservative play call? I'm still mad.
