bad impression when he screams at players and tugs on a cheerleaders pompom in that soft drink and according to his Hes even worse in real life these now that a team trapped in a fou game tailspin has been All but eliminated from the playoffs for a second straight the Steeles 57 May be going Down to their worst record in eight if they Cowher int going Down he still comes into meetings and Hes got his Little jaw stuck out wide receiver Hines Ward Hes still out there trying to do the Best Job he weve got to play a 60 minute that whats most disappointing to we go out there and play decent against Good but we dont play a full game and we go out there and mess it this has been the most stressful of Cowherd eight sea sons on the he was forced to Call a team meeting to deny rumours about his future in Pitts and he said his family has been subjected to insensitive comments from its been a trying kind of uncharted Cowher people say things that sometimes you kind of bite your Tongue and you wonder Why they say them and where it comes when youre in the Public people can say whatever they want with no with no even team president Dan who rarely criticizes got into the he chastised Cowher for the soft drink saying it portrayed Cowher ultimate the Steeles in a bad photo Steeles coach Bill Cowher has remained Calm on the sidelines despite his teams lacklustre performance this but behind the his players Hes As volatile As but whats really bad these Days is the Steeles with 12 losses in 17 games and 16 Mark since last december at three Rivers where they were 459 under Cowher until the Middle of last the Steeles play the Baltimore Ravens 57 there on the Steeles expected much More this season after what they Felt was an anomaly a year when they lost their final five to finish it want an Aber theres a lot of High expect theres been very High standards around Cowher i understand the Digap the even Cowherd players Arent certain whether they have become resigned to defeat their last two Home losses were to Cleveland and each a on game Winner at the have the Steeles simply packed it in for a second consecutive season i really cant Ward you Hope youve got four games even though things Arent looking too Bright for you still want to go out and do the Job Well and perform and build momentum for the next defensive end Kevin Henry is also convinced Cowher Hast even if team

they went to what was supposed to be a fourth straight Matching the Start of their last super bowl turned into a disastrous Michael Irvin went Down and Dallas Hast been the los ing six of for the beating cow boys was validation that Rookie coach Andy Reid is turning things two More victories and several near misses have served As further two months since their prophetic first the teams play it should vide a Good idea of where each is Dallas 66 needs to get on a Roll if its going to make the play a sense of urgency is apparent in the cowboys moves this week letting Deion play receiver and signing kicker Eddie Murray and linebacker Quentin both of whom last played in the nil in its disappointing to see All the Talent walking through this locker room and not be said safety Darren Woodson Philadelphia 310 is one win from Topping last seasons getting 4 against archrival Dallas would do wonders for eagles already soaring were so i truly believe cornerback Troy Vincent were going on the Road now and being very it want like that a year Philadelphia led 177 in Arizona last Only to lose the previous game was a 2017 overtime loss in pre they lost by one at the at the eagles took the giants to overtime before los it gives us a Little Confidence that we can compete with these and if we can eliminate some can come out with said Rookie Quarter Back Donovan were not frustrated to the Point where were turning things were staying focused and hopefully changing things around so we can pick it up next the cowboys Are saying Many of the same things about eliminating mistakes and trying to stay those comments Are targeted at an offence that has failed to score enough to win four games when the defense allowed just 13 coach Chan Gailey has likened his offence to a Jalopy it can some times get you from Point a to but not and it Doest look Good starting with the game in Dallas offence has scored one touchdown or less in five of nine cowboys have one offensive touchdown in the last 11 in quite sure everybody is tired of hearing me say we have the potential of doing because it Hast running Back Emmitt Smith so now weve got to win and weve got to win in the right whether that is making some big plays or just showing some consistency for four quarters or eight quarters or 16 those kind of things have to happen in order for us to be where we want to be at the end of the injuries Are partly to former pro bowlers Daryl Larry Allen and Mark Stepnoski All missed last sundays 136 loss to new step Noski May return but the cowboys wont have receivers Ernie Mills or Wane the Lack of depth at receiver is one reason Sanders will return to Hes also needed to try drawing coverage from Raghib Ismail had two 100yard games in the three he played opposite Hes had one since As Terback Troy Aikman has often settled for dump off passes to run Ning backs instead of taking risks on deeper Aikman reluctance to pull the trigger has resulted in just two 50 Yard outings from receivers other than Ismail in the Post Irvin neither came in the last six it was a tremendous blow for us to lose Aikman i think there Are probably people who underestimate i think there Are probably people in the organization who underestimate what it meant to lose could Sanders be the answer in in favor of whatever they feel needs to be done for us to be Aikman i dont think you can keep going Down this Road and things Are because there not Steed May need surgery Pittsburgh a nose tackle Joel a former pro bowl player and one of the Pitts Burgh Steeles most dependable linemen during the
