That's exactly right, miter. Cowher has a number of fuckups that year. He blew the first bungs game by having Ricardo fucking cocleagh return punts. Basic problem was that the guy could not fucking catch. Sure snuff fumbles late opening way for winning score

To make matters worse with Colclough and his PR was the way he tried to catch the ball over his head. Instead of using the basket type technique the ball would hit his stone hands and bound far away from him. That was a maddening season for sure.

Yes, we had a problem with fumbling punt returns which really cost us in a game or 2

Both losses in the second half of the season were to Baltimore. The combined score of those 2 games... 58-7

I remember 2006. Frustrating season. Defending SB champions. We started 2-6.

We did get our shit together and went 6-2 the rest of the way but it was too late.


Cowher's farewell tour. Took half a year off, more interested in patting vick's derriere than repeating. Fucker could've made a run at repeating, that team was playing some good football to round out the season.

Season ended with Holmes burning the Bungs in OT, I believe.


Great recall

What an awful season. I was at the opener and had a blast with my brother. I then went to the Ravens game in Baltimore. What a shitshow. Cowher had completely checked out. Ben gets strip sacked and the Ravens return it for a touchdown. It looked like Bens arm was going forward but Cowher didn't challenge it. He walked the other way with his head down. I knew he was retiring at the end of the season that day.

I was at that opener as well, where Charlie Batch & Steelers pulled out a late win v. Dolphins.

Was a classic ChiTraderRob tailgate. I have a pic that I'll try to find of....me, ChiTraderRob, Ron, StillThere, MDisSteelerCountry.
