In some shocking early news from Week 1 of the NFL season, an old white guy has a bad take on Colin Kaepernick. This time around, it’s former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, who tossed out some quarter-assed nonsense during CBS’s pregame show.
Bill Cowher was at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and he seemed delighted to be there. Now that I have your attention, we should be asking more questions about the process of how these models are picked.
Bill Cowher has a girlfriend. She fronts a hard rock band. Her name is Queen V. Below is a video Queen V released in June. Bill Cowher is in the video. Bill Cowher is wearing eye liner. I can confidently speak for Yinzers everywhere when I tell you nothing makes sense anymore.
Bill Cowher was involved in a two-car, chain-reaction crash yesterday afternoon on Manhattan's Upper East side. One of the vehicles—not Cowher's—eventually slammed into scaffolding, cracking a pole and and bringing down construction debris. No one was injured.
The only bigger waste of time than watching insipid and moronic NFL pre-game shows is watching their post-game counterparts, in which washed-up former stars mumble vacuous platitudes and chickenscratch X's and O's. We noticed something curious last night, though, when Shannon Sharpe suffered a brief moment of…
Marino. Esiason. Sharpe. Cowher. Football legends all. They managed to compile a mathematically improbable record picking games last week. I think Paul the Octopus could do better, and he's dead. [CBS Sports, h/t Nathan] UPDATE:
Raiders, Bengals and Bears fans have all purchased billboards calling for their teams to clean house in the front office. But those are angry, angry cities. The salt-of-the-earth folk in Upstate New York prefer more constructive advice on their roadsides.
"Sources close to Cowher said he did not want to have Favre as his quarterback, and that he also wanted to bring in people he was familiar with to handle personnel." [NY Post]
Not so fast, Jets fans. This guy was almost done with his makeshift Bill Cowher T-shirt when the news came down: The Scowl has rebuffed the green and white after all.
I'd always thought that Bill Cowher looked the most natural in New York, where his scowl seems the most at home. Now, he and the Jets are talking, apparently.
One of the many reasons it's good to be a famous sports figure: When you want to clear out your house of a bunch of useless, outdated junk, you can slap a "As Owned By ..." sticker on it, say it's for charity and look like a great guy, rather than just tossing everything out to the street corner and hope somebody…
Via Sports By Brooks, here's a video apparently shot in February 2000 from an incredibly rude (but amusingly inquisitive) fan who ran into Bill Cowher and his wife on an undisclosed tropical locale.
The platitudes people hand out when a prominent figure retires or dies can become so banal and repetitive that one ultimately finds oneself almost disliking the departed as a backlash; see Slate's Jack Shafer's look at how journalists covered Gerald Ford's death, as one example. But we have to say: It will really seem…
Steelers head coach Bill Cowher, beloved in many places that are not Seattle, may have given some clues yesterday about his plans for the future. He didn't announce anything, but said he'd have something to say about it next week. If he was going to stay, though, why wait to say it?
We should be saving this for our Heartfelt Fridays post, but, you know, we couldn't wait. So ... sorry. In the Steelers' press conference on Tuesday, coach Bill Cowher said that he is officially taking the blame for the team's 2-5 start, warning everyone to lay off of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. "It's, like,…
Because we're just the kind of sniggering, obnoxious, wisenheimer 14-year-olds you think we are, we thought we'd giggle a bit this morning at Steelers lineback Joey Porter, who is in serious danger of becoming a staple around these parts.
Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the champions of Super Bowl XL. We'll be back with all kinds more coverage tomorrow, but for now, we salute them, and their fans, who, we suspect, might be a bit vocal tonight.
With the Super Bowl looming, we've just realized that no one has yet tackled one of the really big issues. Namely, the Steelers' uniform color debate. On Tuesday, Pittsburgh coach Bill Cowher announced that the Steelers would be wearing their road white jerseys for the game, even though they are designated as the…
• It must have been frustrating for Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck to have reached nearly the pinnacle of his profession, and, as a reward, be forced to be a supporting character as Terry Bradshaw promoted Failure To Launch. But hey, they're both bald; there's that.
• We cannot be relieved or happy to see a …
