Former Steelers coach Bill Cowher doesn’t think his old team is going back to the Super Bowl.
Cowher said on WFAN that he thinks the Jets are going to win the AFC Championship Game on Sunday in Pittsburgh, where Cowher was the head coach for 15 years.
“The way the Jets are playing, I’m telling you this is going to be a game, I think it will be a classic game, and I like the Jets,” Cowher said. “They match up well. I think it’s going to be a tough ball game, but they certainly have all the ingredients to go to the Super Bowl.”
Steelers receiver Hines Ward said he looks forward to showing his old coach that he’s wrong.
“He can pick whoever he wants,” Ward said. “Coach Cowher’s not our coach anymore. Guess we have to prove him wrong, too.”
