The fact that the Ravens swept the Pittsburgh Steelers and are on to bigger and better things this season could lead to the perception that Bill Cowher's resignation isn't a big deal for them. Wrong, wrong, wrong. It's a huge deal. The coach known as The Chin, who announced his resignation yesterday after coaching the Steelers for 15 seasons, got the best of the Ravens much more often than not. He dominated them. There's no telling what will happen in Pittsburgh now, but the departure of Cowher, one of the NFL's best coaches, means the Ravens have a better shot at becoming the lords of the AFC North.

Apparently former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach and current CBS analyst Bill Cowher is dating a singer named Queen V. And apparently she needed a tall bearded guy with a big chin to wear eyeliner in a music video. Here is the finished product, and if there is any better way to start your weekend, we can't think of one.

HOUSTON -- Warren Moon keeps saying that at 35, he isn't an old quarterback. He keeps saying that he hasn't lost a thing.But in the season opener at the Astrodome yesterday, he lost five interceptions to the Pittsburgh Steelers. And in a major upset, the Houston Oilers lost the game, 29-24, as Bill Cowher won his first start as Pittsburgh's second coach in three decades.Cowher, also 35, is the National Football League's second youngest coach and was an NFL linebacker as recently as 1984."I've seen Warren Moon when he was sharper," he said, and that more or less sums up a strange game for heavily favored Houston, which broke on top, 14-0, and held on through a 24-16 first half, but failed to score in the second half.

Texans need Cowher Ken Murray Baltimore Sun ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that Bill Cowher has a wish list of three teams — the Texans, Dolphins and Giants. Of the preferred three, the Texans are best situated to make a rapid rise. Their offense is top-notch, though their defense is not. But Cowher knows defense. The Dolphins are the team that Bill Parcells built — and abandoned when he saw it wasn't going to work. The Dolphins have no quarterback.

He signed with the Ravens on Sept. 22."I know a lot of players on the team, but there is no bitterness," Morris said.

After five straight days of interviewing candidates in their head coaching hunt, the Ravens were quiet yesterday. But Bill Cowher was not. Cowher, the former Pittsburgh Steelers coach, reiterated to USA Today that he will remain a television analyst through next season. "I don't have any plans to coach in 2008," Cowher said. If Cowher wanted to return, he likely would be at the top of the list for every team seeking a new coach. There had been speculation that the Ravens would make a run at Cowher to replace Brian Billick, who was fired Dec. 31. Owner Steve Bisciotti has denied rumors that he had begun courting Cowher for the Ravens' job during the season.

In a sport that breathes change, both drastic and instantaneous, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks have been rewarded for their managerial patience. That these two teams - and particularly their two coaches - will meet in Detroit for the NFL's 40th Super Bowl in two weeks is proof positive that staying the course has merit. It would have been understandable for the Steelers to dump Bill Cowher after the 1999 season. Eight years into his tenure as Chuck Noll's coaching successor, Cowher seemingly had come full circle.

Before the start of yesterday's game, Ravens kicker Matt Stover had a chat with Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher. As it turned out, Stover did the one thing Cowher asked him not to do. "I told him prior to the game, `I think I'm the player that has played the most games against you than anybody in the league,'" Stover said. "He said, `Just don't kick a game-winner.' And I did." Stover's 44-yard field goal in overtime gave the Ravens a 16-13 win, ended a four-game losing streak and punctuated what has turned into another stellar season for the veteran kicker.

The outlook of Pittsburgh coach Bill Cowher may be based more on hope than on fact. Cowher insists he is confident in kicker Kris Brown, who has struggled much of the season. Brown has missed at least one field-goal attempt in nine of the Steelers' 16 games, including four misses in a home loss Nov. 4 to the Ravens. Brown converted just five of his past eight field-goal attempts and missed two extra points over the last four games. Cowher, who had reservations concerning Brown after the kicker missed two field-goal attempts against the New York Jets Dec. 9, is now optimistic that his kicker can hold his own in a duel with the Ravens' Matt Stover.

PITTSBURGH - Today's AFC championship game features mirror images on a likely snowy Heinz Field, from crushing running games to stifling 3-4 defenses to unbeatable quarterbacks. What separates the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots is on the sidelines, where the playoff fortunes of Bill Cowher and Bill Belichick couldn't be more different. Belichick, the gruff defensive mastermind of the Patriots, is looking to make coaching history. Cowher, the emotional, chisel-faced leader of the Steelers, is looking to avoid coaching infamy.

We always hear about NFL players "on and off the field," whether they are good or bad people, leaders or followers. But what about when they're neither on nor off the field, but stuck in that middle ground? In other words, how do they behave on the sideline? Brandon Jacobs, the Giants running back, gave us a hint Sunday when he came off the field and, in frustration, heaved his helmet roughly 10 rows behind the Giants' bench. Although TV cameras missed the toss, they did zoom in on the Colts fan who initially refused to give back the helmet and ultimately had it pried from his grasp by a security guard.

Kaye Cowher , the wife of ex-Steelers coach Bill Cowher and a former basketball player at North Carolina State and in the now-defunct Women's Professional Basketball League, has died of skin cancer. She was 54. Cowher died Friday in her native North Carolina, where the family relocated at her urging during Cowher's final year as coach in 2006, one season after the Steelers won the Super Bowl. The family had lived in Raleigh since. The Cowhers met at North Carolina State, where Bill played linebacker.

During CBS' AFC championship game halftime show Sunday, former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher blurted something that just was astounding. Cowher - who has earned his stripes as a Super Bowl-winning coach - suggested that the San Diego Chargers pull quarterback Philip Rivers because he was less than 100 percent physically and play Billy Volek in the second half. To paraphrase Cowher: You're 30 minutes from the Super Bowl and you pull out all the stops. What?

Despite the final results of 2007, in announcing the Ravens would seek a new coach, owner Steve Bisciotti left the definite impression that he feels his team is closer to the top of the NFL dog pile than it is the bottom. "I believe we have the nucleus of a team that can get back to the Super Bowl," he said earlier this week. If that's the case - if Bisciotti thinks success is right around the corner and not along the horizon - the Ravens might not have as many options in their coaching search as they're letting on. In fact, among the six-pack of candidates the search apparently has focused on, only a couple inspire the confidence they can take the current roster and produce immediate results.

CBS is putting it this way -- it already had former players and a general manager, now it has a coach. The network announced yesterday it added former Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher to The NFL Today cast. Cowher joins host James Brown as a new analyst with Boomer Esiason, Dan Marino and Shannon Sharpe. (The former general manager is Charley Casserly, who has his own segment rather than talking with the crew at the big desk.) Cowher left the Steelers after the 2006 season, his 15th as their coach, and has moved to North Carolina to spend more time with his family.

Their fans stayed home. The Pittsburgh Steelers might as well have. The Steelers haven't won in Baltimore since 2002, but the gold and black usually make their presence known at M&T Bank Stadium, on the field and in the stands. That wasn't the case yesterday, as fewer Steelers faithful shelled out for tickets in Baltimore. Their team didn't look particularly committed either, as Pittsburgh endured its most lopsided loss since its 1997 season opener. "That was a pitiful performance today," coach Bill Cowher said.

PITTSBURGH -- Bill Cowher is an emotional coach. He kisses and curses his players. He hugs them, scolds them, at times accidentally spits on them and joins in touchdown and game-winning celebrations.But yesterday Cowher apologized to his players after an emotional decision almost cost the Pittsburgh Steelers a 7-6 win over the New England Patriots in an AFC divisional playoff game before 61,228 at Three Rivers Stadium.Cowher said the emotions of the home crowd and his players were factors when he went for a touchdown instead of a field goal on fourth-and-goal at the 1-yard-line with 3: 24 left in the game and the Steelers up 7-6.Linebackers Ted Bruschi and Ted Johnson dived over the top of the pile of players to stop Kordell Stewart on a quarterback sneak, but the Steelers came up with their own big play minutes later.
