This season has been all about team and there is nobody that stressed that more than head coach Bill Cowher. With all of the injuries the Steelers
have had, Cowher knows how important it has been to have players step up and the team come together as one.
“I think that we have had to,” said Cowher about the team being one. “It’s been a situation all year from the beginning of this
camp on with the injuries we have had. You start with Charlie Batch going down, then Kendall Simmons going down, Mike Logan going down, and Casey
Hampton going down, we have had player after player again have to step up. Tommy Maddox going down and Ben (Roethlisberger) stepping in there.
“We have had a philosophy and have adopted that, I think out of necessity. Recognizing that it’s not so much the players stepping in,
it’s everybody else having to pick up their games.
