They'll see each other next month in Canton, Ohio, but before then Bryant McFadden got the chance to chat with his former (and first) NFL head coach, Bill Cowher in the lead up to the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. BMac and BC discuss that surprise moment of learning he'd be enshrined and the distinct Black and Gold feel to this year's class. Not only has Cowher been writing a Hall of Fame speech, but he's also been writing a book called 'Heart and Steel' and available now. He explains the purpose goes way beyond football. 'The Chin' details landing the job with his hometown team, building a culture in Pittsburgh and drafting Ben Roethlisberger before diving into memories of the Steelers 2005 Super Bowl run. That group captured a ring but was it even the best team he coached? Cowher comments on Mike Tomlin's coaching future as well as what it was like to coach Rod Woodson and Troy Polamalu (also Hall of Famers). Finally, Superlatives.
