Are the Pittsburgh Steelers soft on defense? Their former head coach who led the team to a 161-99-1 over 15 years seems to think so. On CBS Postgame show, their former head coach Bill Cowher went off on the team saying they are “SOFT” on defense.
“I think they’re finesse on offense and soft on defense,” Cowher said late Sunday afternoon on CBS’ postgame show
Cowher has been out of coaching for almost a decade and has shown no inclination to return to the sidelines. The Pittsburgh area native has generally refrained from criticizing Mike Tomlin, and Cowher has done anything but hover over the organization he guided on the field from 1992-2006, but this was a shocker.
He was not alone. Hines Ward, their all-time leading receiver, chimed in on NBC-TV.
“They’re very close to hitting that panic button … The defense looks soft. Guys are just able to run the ball up and down the field. I look at their personnel; they can’t cover anybody in the secondary. Offensively, I thought I’d never say it, but the Steelers are a finesse offense right now. I don’t even know who these guys are.”
Maybe Coach is getting the itch to return to the sidelines?
