    Is it still "weird" seeing Tomlin instead of Cowher?

    It's been over a year now since Tomlin took over and replaced Cowher. Bill was the face of the team for 15 years and the only coach that some fans have ever seen for the Steelers up until Tomlin took over. When you watch a Steeler game now or see highlights of 2007 does it still seem "odd" ( for lack of a better term) to not see BC?

    At first when he retired I had the same sick feeling as when Noll retired but when I saw that the team moved on and could win without him, I was ready for change that I feel is for the better.

    Good to see around again Sal

    For me there's times, like when I watch SBXL again or when I see an old interview on youtube on something that I kinda miss Cowher just for his fiery personality and the way he motivated the team but like Sal mentioned the team is finding a new identity with Tomlin and a new way to win. They players are resilient and definitely seem to buy into what Tomlin is doing.

    Having said that though the team last year definitely did not seem prepared at times especially in big games. Perhaps part of that is poor play of the OL, injuries to key players on the team at various times but under Cowher the team was always ready to go in big game such as in prime time or games with playoff implications, etc. Did they always play well enough to win? no but they did give it their all and never gave up which is something we saw alittle bit of last year but hopefully we'll see more of this year and a better team in 2008. Granted this is Tomlin's first year and the whole team was going through a learning process so there is a curve that you can work with I guess but at the same time we are not a rebuilding team, we have the players to make a championship run but it's up to the coaches and players to pull it together.

    Only wierd thing that i have notice is seeing Tomlin playing golf (during the off season) and not remembering Cowher ever doing that.

    NEVILLEWOOD (KDKA) ― Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin put down the pigskin and picked up his golf clubs for charity.

    He hosted the 11th Annual Extra Mile Education Foundation Golf Outing at Nevillewood.

    The event raises money for inner-city kids to give them a chance to have a Catholic education to help them achieve their dreams.

    Tomlin says he was inspired to get involved with the program.

    "When I was apart of it last year and really my first exposure to it, when that young man got up and talked about how the Extra Mile helped him, and gave his living testimony, that's all you need to hear," he said.

    The charity has been in existence for 19 years.

    the day he walked out on us, i got over him, he was a bum, and always will be one......... his one super bowl doesn't mean **** since he had a few legit chances to win it all and failed each and every time, now if he had 2 super bowls i wouldn't hate him as much, but he's a failure...........**** regular season wins

    ya to bad that it took all these years to win. if only he would he'd learn sooner to play to win and not to loose that we would have better words for him.
