ben on tomlin:


"You can see the excitement in his eyes," Roethlisberger said. "He really doesn't get rah-rah. As a player you like that. He's calm. You don't have to worry about getting yelled at or spit on or getting stuff thrown at you."


getting spit on.  classic.  i think we're all over cowher and yesterday was a great way to prove it.

Yeah, I noticed that too.  Hard not to see the implication.

I watched the game at the bar, so I didn't get to hear any of Cowher on the pregame.  Did he say anything that made sense?

I dont think it was Gay, but it was someone.

Cowher was not very flashy in his debut as an in studio commentator. He just kind of gave his slant on things. He is (so far) not nearly as animated as somebody like Mike Ditka.  He took some good spirited ribbing from Dan and Boomer;  Dan had a face shield labeled "spit shield," since he was sitting next to him.

When asked "Who will be the most successful new coach in 2007?" he first quantified the criteria. He said, if you based it solely on improvement of win total, he would pick Lane Kiffin, because he only has to improve on 2 wins from last season. If based on total wins, he would pick Norv Turner, because he inherited the most talent. So, I don't think that was too controversial.

He also said his sleeper pick of the year was the Vikings, because they have a great run defense, a strong running attack (good line play, and Chester Taylor and Adrian Peterson), and an athletic young QB in Tavarus Jackson, who, he said, reminds him of a young Kordell.  He pointed out it reminded him of his late '90's Steelers team. He emphasized that he really likes Jackson.

I agree with him about Minnesota possibly being a surprise this year, but I don't think it has much to do with their QB.  And god forbid he turns out like Kordell.

I gave her twenty bucks, hopefully she'll know better next time.

The rest of the afternoon was eventful, as well.  Freddy's recaptured the blue bra, with penso going a very drunken 1 for 3 in limited action.

Its amazing the degree of "Quietness" surrounding the Steelers and Tomlin debut this year.  Everything I have heard national media wise revolved around San Diego, New England, Cincy, Balty, and Indy.

I think its great for the team to fly under the radar like this to start out the season.

You don't mean that one chick who kept getting booed for wearing a cowboys jersey, do you?  Ugh.


As for the picture... it's done in  your control panel, in the avatar options.  You might have to edit the picture down, there's a size limit.

Unlike the avatar, it sounds like jasonic doesn't have size limits.
