I thought the same thing at the time but in hindsight Kordell had to survive three consecutive years with two of the worst offensive coordinators in the history of the game, Ray Sherman and Kevin Gilbride. It's a wonder he completed a pass at all.The Kordell Apologists. Now that's a term I haven't heard in a long time. Well since Koredell was burying passes in the dirt. I used to think he had blackmail pictures on Cowher. That's why he kept starting 2 years too many.
We used to laugh when Buddy Ryan punched Kevin Gilbride on the sidelines when both were with Da Bears but after Cowher hired Gilbride we understood why that could happen.
