The Steelers’ Hall of Fame coach didn’t mince words when asked about Pittsburgh receiver George Pickens’ recent loafing on a blocking assignment, then explaining his actions by stating that he didn’t want to get hurt.
“It is disappointing to see and hear what George Pickens talks about, because culture really is about commitment and sacrifice,” Cowher said Thursday on “The Pat McAfee Show.” “You’re not just playing with one another, you’re playing for one another.”
Cowher said he “could never imagine” a player doing what Pickens did and “not performing and giving everything.”
