Former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher told WFAN in New York earlier in the week that he’s picking the Jets to defeat the Steelers in the AFC Championship. Cowher has jumped on board with both BSR and Ray Rice this week and gone green.

Fox Sports had the direct quote from the former 15 year Pittsburgh coach.

“Well, I’ll tell you what, Pittsburgh will have some issues this weekend,” Cowher said. “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.

“They made a believer out of me last week with what they did, I think they match up well. I think it’s going to be a tough ballgame, but they certainly have all the ingredients.”

I’ve gotta tell you, I was irritated with Cowher’s biased picks this season. Especially when he was the only member of the CBS pre-game crew to pick the Chiefs over the Ravens. But I take it all back.
