    Won 2 then bailed and did little with his subsequent gig in Miami before only coaching for a decade in the NFL - very similar career to Madden with one more Lombardi

    Probably at least as deserving as Coach Cowher but other coaches who made the career mistake of not doing pregame shows work have good cases too - Buddy Parker could not do TV after coaching championship teams for the Lions in the early 50s

    My cynicism about the NFL milking this with the TV notifications of Johnson and Cowher of their selections influences my views

    If Jerry Jones is in the hall, it wouldn't be right for Johnson not to be in. He built the Dallas Dynasty, then parted ways with Dallas after disagreements between him and Jerry stemming from Jerry being butthurt over Jimmy getting more of the credit for building that team

    I have no issue with Johnson getting in since the HOF is in a lot of ways the Pro Bowl popularity contest on steroids

    But Jerry getting in had a lot to do with him leading the way in monetizing franchise values into the stratosphere in addition to winning two Lombardis followed by a quarter century of mediocrity on the field

    To promote the NFL since they had a national audience. They did the same thing with Jimmie Johnson last night. Smart marketing by the NFL. Yes he won only 2 Superbowls but I have no problem looking at a guys WHOLE career and what they contributed to football not just the NFL. Johnson has a long history of football, just like Cowher.

    Now Wednesday morning Troy can join Bill.

    Cowher deserves it. Will he be on Dancing with the Stars next?

    A donk HOF induction.

    I’m kidding. Well deserved.

    I can’t wait to see that chin immortalized in bronze. It would be great if they put a little bit of spittle dripping off of it.

    My Avatar is worse than the Madden Curse. My Previous avatars: 1- Antonio Brown, 2- Juju / Conner, 3- Tom Brady, 4- Lamar Jackson. Their careers all went south when I added them as my avatar, so I'm trying to make something good out of the bad

    Re: Former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher elected to the Hall of Fame

    Apparently the "centennial class" HOF selection process by which Cowher and Johnson got in has been hijacked from achieving its original purpose and now is going to result in some sort of separate kid's table induction ceremony

    The motivation for the class was to account for players from the first 30 years or so of the NFL. The Hall opened in 1963, so naturally, it was always a little more difficult for those from the league’s earliest time to get in....

    The 15 in the centennial class won’t be inducted at the normal August ceremony, but the five modern-day inductees will go in as the usually would. A separate ceremony for the group of 15 hasn’t been announced, but the thought it is it’ll be in early fall.

    https://www.si.com/nfl/2020/01/13/bi...nfl-news-notes

    Peter King, who takes the HOF seriously, is not a fan of how this is shaping up

    The key to this Centennial Class should be the old timers. We stress out about the people in our lifetime who we think have been bypassed in the process. The selection of two modern coaches closes out any chance for strong candidates like Buddy Parker, a running back for Detroit who won one championship as a player in the thirties and two more as Lions coach in the fifties—beating Paul Brown in both in the process. As I wrote when this process was announced, this should not be the cleanup class for hotly debated candidates of the last 30 years.

    But the surprise notifications this weekend made for good TV along with adding some juice to the Fox and CBS studio shows, so the NFL PR machine wins again.

    Nope. Not at all, since I'm the one who brought that phrase to these here forums. Just because he's a HOF coach didn't mean he didn't have shortcomings. But, this isn't the forum to rain on the Cowher HOF parade, so what say we drop it.

    12-9 in the playoff with mediocre QB's until Ben at the tail end of his career.

    Winner of nearly half of his red flag challenges, ( 27 for 59 )

    10 playoff appearances in 15 years

    Seldom below leads.

    5-1 with Ben in the playoffs
