Published October 14, 2013
MIXED REACTION ON TWITTER: ESPN's Mike Greenberg on his Twitter feed wrote, "I enjoyed having Bill Cowher in the booth with Nantz/Simms. Thought that was a good idea." NHL.com's Dave Lozo wrote, "Having Bill Cowher in the booth to tell Phil Simms when he's wrong has made this game quite the unexpected delight." But the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero wrote, "Sorry CBS, this three-man booth is too much. Send Cowher back to the studio, please." The Big Lead's Jason McIntyre: "Only been 1 quarter, but CBS, please nix the Cowher-in-the-booth thing. Cowher way too chatty. I actually enjoy the Simms-Nantz chemistry." Yahoo Sports' Greg Wyshynski: "Your regularly scheduled coverage has been postponed. In its place, CBS is proud to present 'Steelers Memory Lane Starring Bill Cowher.'"
