Comparing Noll's first few seasons to those of Cowher and Tomlin just isn't right. Cowher and Tomlin both took over teams with immense talent, Noll didn't.Absolutely, and what's even more impressive is what Noll and co. did in the later rounds. I think someone put up just one of Noll's year's late rounders that showed at least 3 HoF'ers. A true giant among talent evaluators during his tenure in Pittsburgh, undoubtedly.
Cowher had to build his team and develop his zone blitz scheme he, Lebeau and Capers came up with.Its my understanding that Dick Lebeau came up with the zone blitz while a DC with the Bengals under Sam Wyche in the 80s. That's not to say that it didn't develop while Lebeau was with the Steelers in the 90s, but you make it sound like Cowher was involved in "coming up with" the concept, which he wasn't.
Cowher would have done a whole lot better if he had a QB like Ben earlier in his career.I don't think anybody would deny this. However, there is something to be said for Cowher's failure to address the most important position on the field for over a decade. The only QB he ever drafted before the 6th round was Kordell Stewart (in the 2nd of 1995). Throughout his career, it seemed obvious to me that he just didn't value the QB position the way we do now. Heck, even in 2004, it was Rooney that had to step in and override Cowher to draft Roethlisberger!
Throughout his career, it seemed obvious to me that he just didn't value the QB position the way we do now.Anyone care to revisit the 2001 draft and the Steelers sitting at #19 with a pretty valid QB (D.B.) waiting for the call . . . anyone care to guess who the "D.B." represents? I was certain that even Cowher could not pass the guy up, and yet . . . . Now imagine had Cowher had even the slightest clue about QB play. How many titles would the guy be responsible for withthe defenses Cowher had from 2001 - 2006?
