We only threw it 11 times. Its not like weve suddenly arrived, I dont think. Too much comparison has been made to (the preseason). Im not concerned with that.

Bill Cowher time
We came a long way. This is a special organization and Im happy for the players, coaches and the city of Pittsburgh.

Bill Cowher good
We have traveled a hard road, and grew as a football team, and individually. This is a very grounded and resilient group of guys. Weve never taken anything for granted and looked beyond the next game. We have kind of had tunnel vision throughout the process.

Bill Cowher loss
We did a good job today of having our offense break the huddle quickly. And weve had a lot of work against the no-huddle offense. We have hand signals for the defense on the sideline. So those are things that shouldnt come as any surprise to us.
Bill Cowher work
We dont ask people to run differently. I mean, runners are runners. Ive never tried to curtail a runner. Our offense has got enough plays that, within the running play, a ballcarrier has a chance to express his abilities. I think Willie has gotten more comfortable with the plays weve run.
Bill Cowher people
We dont ask people to run differently, ... Runners are runners. I never try to curtail a runner. Our offense has got enough plays that within the running play a ball carrier has a chance to express his ability. I think Willie has gotten more comfortable with the plays weve run. Hes had a chance to watch some pretty good backs in front of him be patient on certain plays, hit it on certain plays. I think hes earned this opportunity if indeed Jerome cant go. Im not concerned; Im rather excited.
Bill Cowher people
We really could not get a whole lot going offensively and I credit their defense.
Bill Cowher real
Weve worked hard with our look teams about when they break the huddle, getting the ball snapped within eight to 10 seconds. These guys come up to the line of scrimmage and theyre gone. Its different. Weve worked on it all week. The guys are getting a sense of what the tempo is like.

When you get to this point in the season, there are not a lot of surprises. You have a couple of very good football teams that want to put together their best game plan, and then execute it in detail. There are usually three or four opportunities in any game to make the right play, and have an effect on the outcome. This game probably wont be any different.
Bill Cowher good
There are a couple of guys who havent worked, but it is more precautionary than anything.
Bill Cowher work

Bill Cowher time
We went back to the pure basics, with the mindset that has allowed us to get to this point. We cant change that now.
Bill Cowher change
This will be a good barometer for us because this is by far the best team weve played and maybe will play. They are a football team that is not used to losing at all. For them to come off a tough loss against Carolina has really probably compounded the challenge that we have.
Bill Cowher loss
This will be a grind. This is a good defense. Theyre very disruptive. Theyre a good team.
Bill Cowher good
With the bye week, we probably lost a little bit of that momentum. We were in one of those zones -- Just tell us where were going next. Just send us off to another team. I think these guys thrive on this. With all due respect to Heinz Field, we just kept going off. They said, Youre the home team for the Super Bowl. No, were not.
Bill Cowher men

Bill Cowher best
We mixed it up and did a good job of dropping eight and bringing pressure and trying to disrupt them and get them out of their rhythm. They hit some big plays there in the fourth quarter, and we were fortunate to get out of there with the win.
Bill Cowher art
We mixed it up, you have to. We did a good job, dropping eight or mixing pressure to try to disrupt him, get him out of his rhythm.
Bill Cowher good
We were put in that situation when we lost those three games. We have to come back and win at home against Detroit and go on the road wherever we need to go.
Bill Cowher home
We have a 15-minute cooling-off period after the game and we obviously have some guys who could use a little bit longer than that.
Bill Cowher
What Jerome gives you down in the red zone is how we are using him. On a 4th-and-1 you have a guy like Jerome Bettis. Its an easy call to make really. Down around the goal line he has a great skill for that.
Bill Cowher sin
This was a big challenge for our team coming in and kind of weathering the storm early in the game. These are two very evenly matched teams, as was proven this year. Were fortunate and feel good about moving on.
Bill Cowher good
This team understands its a journey. This is the first step. It was almost a battle of wills out there today, like who was going to flinch first. We just came up with a couple more big plays than they did, and that was the difference in the game.
Bill Cowher journey
Those teams in the 70s put the city of Pittsburgh on the map. That was a phenomenal run. They created the tradition and the legacy of Pittsburgh. Were proud of that. But its good to be able to say we did it, too, in 2005, and we did our thing our way.

Bill Cowher joy
There is a lot of tradition with Pittsburgh and to be a part of that would be really special. We have the four trophies in our building and I pass them every day and to bring another one there would be very gratifying and very special for the whole team.
Bill Cowher art

Bill Cowher comfort

Bill Cowher lost
We had a special group, but its hard to bring everybody back. That happens every year. You hope to keep a good nucleus, draft well and maybe pick up some free agents. Its going to be a challenge, but I like where were starting and the players were starting with.
Bill Cowher hope
You dont notice him much if you dont watch a lot of film. But the coaches see it all the time. Hes really smart, hes really sound and, at any time, hes going to come up with a play to beat you.

To try to create a spark, ... try to get a possession.

We just tried to limit Bens access this week. Youll all have plenty of chances to talk to him.
Bill Cowher you
Weve been somewhat of a desperate team for a long time. I think we need to continue to play that way. Like I said before, we are still the same team that, seven weeks ago, not a lot of people were giving us a chance.
Bill Cowher time
Well get them in here Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Well put a lot of (the game plan) in, not all of it, give them that edge, I dont want it to get stale.
Bill Cowher day
We know in this business its hard to bring everybody back. They (potential lost free agents, including Randle El) will be hard people to replace but that happens every year.
Bill Cowher people
We had an MRI (Thursday) night and everything came back negative. Hell be fine by Sunday. He was feeling pretty good.
Bill Cowher good
We had an opportunity to coach him in the Pro Bowl and thats a special player. Andre Johnson has turned into one of the better receivers in the National Football League.
Bill Cowher opportunity
We had another third-and-12 against Baltimore last week, we kind of stayed back in a basic defense and that was a touchdown. This was third-and-12 again and I was not going to do it again, so we came with the blitz and we were fortunate it worked out.
Bill Cowher work
We are not done with that journey. Right now, this thing wasnt about week to week, it was about finishing the deal. And we started seven weeks ago and this is the eighth game. We had no margin of error, but it will be a constant reminder.
Bill Cowher art
We gave up a lot of yards in the kicking game,
Bill Cowher ya
We are about as healthy as we have been all year going into the game.
Bill Cowher health
We dont have the kind of offense where youll see a quarterback putting up league-leading numbers. If Ben throws 20 times, at least 10 of those are third downs. You cant look at his numbers without taking that into account.
Bill Cowher time
When you turn the football over four times and are minus-3 in the giveaway-takeaway ratio, you arent going to win many football games,

Weve all had heroes, and I know Jack Lambert was for me because I was a defensive guy.
Bill Cowher hero
The quarterback position has been a little bit of a merry-go-round; weve had Charlie in there, Tommy in there, weve had Ben in there ... and, consequently, our passing game has suffered. There hasnt been that rhythm and being in sync.
Bill Cowher art
We havent had time to think about that (pressure).
Bill Cowher time
We have not played against him a lot. But I have tremendous respect for the guy. Hes one of those guys who can literally will a team to victory.
