Cowher got a break as a Bird
From the Rocky Mountain News:
Former players do win more respect
On a list of things that can be on a coaching résumé, Bill Cowher has something none of his peers has.
He has fractured the leg of a player in an NFL game who later became a fellow coach.
Cowher, as a Philadelphia Eagles special-teams player, once broke a leg of then-Chicago Bears cornerback Jeff Fisher on a punt return.
"I still probably owe him for that," said Fisher, the coach of the Tennessee Titans since 1994.
