I was highly critical of CBS for never getting around to soliciting analyst Bill Cowher's thoughts on the Super Bowl matchup after the AFC title game Jan. 18.

Better late than never, sort of. CBS sent quotes from Cowher about the big game.

Click below to read some of them.On Arizona Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt:

"I’m happy for Ken Whisenhunt, Russ Grimm, Kevin Spencer, Mike Miller, all of those guys. What Kenny has done is turn around a culture in that city and with that football team. The run they have made is nothing less than spectacular. Certainly you would like that to culminate with a victory. Without a doubt he has changed the whole persona of the Arizona Cardinals franchise and its history with this year."

On Pittsburgh Head Coach Mike Tomlin:

"Mike Tomlin has come in and put his blueprints on this team. Certainly with Dick LeBeau and the same staff that was there three years ago in that Super Bowl, one can argue that Dick’s defense this year is one of the greatest defenses of all time. When you look at the starters on this football team, I believe 15 of them were there three years ago. So there is a lot of experience. The experience factor will be big. Mike has been to one Super Bowl as an assistant. That will help him tremendously."

On experience:

"From a player’s standpoint, the experience goes to Pittsburgh. But from a coach’s standpoint, there is a lot of experience on both sides of the ball. I couldn’t be happier for both staffs."
