    The first of (hopefully) many teams realizing that the knee-jerk "FIRE THE COACH!" reaction after a season where the team failed to live up to expectations is not the way to go.

    The Pittsburgh model (players are replaceable if the coaching is of a high calibur) is one that should be emulated in the NFL, IMO.

    looking at the team's record before and since Lewis took over, this is a spectacular move.

    When did Cowher become a coach of high calibur?

    I think the Bengals lived up to expectations... probably even exceeded them.

    The Pittsburgh model... I've never heard that one before.

    Don't forget to celebrate loudly and jubilantly as the maimed QB is being carted off the field.

    Well, I was talking about the players on the field, but for the fans in the bleachers, yep, you bet.

    Only instead of the circular motion you shake it up and down in a "bye bye" motion.

    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
