Now we know the real reason why Bill retired!  Bettis told Bill that he was going to publish this book and Bill wanted to get out of town before it did.

This bothered me at first, and I thought alot about it last night.  And then, after I thought about it for a while, I realized that I really don't give a fuck.

The FO wasn't convinced Kordell was worth the money?  No fucking shit!  They were goddamned right about it too!

In case the link continues to time out:

Bettis' book full of surprises
Wednesday, August 22, 2007

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



[...]
Among the stories told by Bettis is an accusation that former coach Bill Cowher conspired with Steelers management to run quarterback Kordell Stewart out of Pittsburgh because he was due for another big contract after his 2001 Pro Bowl season.

[...]
"For some reason, Coach would never really commit fully to Kordell ... and because of that, we had no consistent leadership from the quarterback position," Bettis wrote"I think they pulled Kordell partly because they didn't want to pay him a big salary and signing bonus. It was cheaper for them if he didn't have success. If he recovered and had a huge year, then the public sentiment would be, 'Hey, you've got to re-sign him for whatever it costs.' I'm telling you, it was a monetary decision. The Steelers had no interest in paying Kordell his market value."
 

Bettis also notes that Cowher and the Rooneys conspired with Larry Brown prior to Super Bowl XXX, letting him know that if Cowher rubbed his tummy and patted his head just prior to a play it would cue Brown to lurk around in the right flat area to intercept Neil O'Donnell passes.
