© Just a note for all of the Mike Tomlin bashers out there. He’s the first coach in Steelers’ history to win 10 games in each of his first two seasons.

Not bad for a too inexperienced, "overpaid janitor." Just again proves the Rooney's know better than the fans. Thats why they run one of the most successful franschises in pro sports.

Loved the choice then, love it now. This guy is the BEST young coach in the league.

I liked the hire and like him now, but, still wish he took into account how F**king awesome this defense is playing. I admire the 4th and goal call to try and get a TD, but, the points were more important and would have put the Steelers only a TD away on the scoreboard. There was so much time left in the game remaining two scoers behind could have been fatal, fortunately not. Not getting points there could have been very costly; Tomlin should thank his defense for bailing him out on that one.

That being said, it is obvious that the players respond to Mike Tomlin in a positive fashion. He asks them to play for 60 minutes and to a man they play for 60 minutes. If the other team believes they are going to be afforded time off during a game they are gravely mistaken. This team doesn't quit, ever.

Tomlin's post-game press conference was GREAT yesterday. This team is taking on his character more & more every week. And make no mistake about it...Tomlin was hired because he showed this character in his interviews.

I thought going for it on the goal line was a great call. Our offense had not shown the ability to get near the endzone, but with the Cowboys against the wind and our defense stifling them, we could get into FG range again with one good play.

If you need a TD and a FG and you have a chance to get the TD that you don't think might come again, you go for it and let your players play. The offense failed, Tomlin did not.

Pap,
In hindsight, that decision actually changed the game. Dallas had a poop punt and Holmes made a great play. It changed field position. I agreed with going for it...I just didnt like the execution. If he kicks a FG, he's Bill Cowher...too conservative. AT home, I say go for it.

D, the decision to go for it wasn't the issue, it was a gutsy call and I like his juevos. The issue is that as a rule, play action passes work the best when your running game is effective, because the defense, particulary the DEs and OLBs play in to stop the run, thus freeing up the outside. Because our run game hadn't been established as effective, the OLB didn't have to fear the dive play and broke out on the FB.

Why not do a a fade to the end of the endzone with our 6'-8" TE Matt Spaeth?

I'd modify your last sentence to "The offensive coordinator failed, the team did not".

It's cool to see the media outside of Pittsburgh give Tomlin tons of credit as well. Listening to the morning sports talk here in the dirty South (so of course they are Falcon jock sniffers) and all three of them said about a week ago how they loved Tomlin. They all agreed if they were players; he'd be the coach in the NFL they'd most like to play for right now. Awesome. And I agree. I love how fired up he gets when things are going great and how calm he appears when things go wrong (he was clapping and upbeat on the 4th down stuff at the goal line).

I wanted Whiz as HC.

But my thought was that Tomlin blew them away in the interview process and they also wanted a change of direction.

I am reasonably happy with Tomlin so far (some nits -- like CAREY FRIGGIN DAVIS!!!). But overall, we have results.

I think Whiz is doing great in AZ and would have done well here too.

Are you sure it was an OLB? Just going from memory I thought it was a DB that came up and stuffed Davis short.

And overall I would have rather seen that play call on second or third down and then line 'em up and see who's got it when it matters and run it up the gut on 4th down.

Also, why did Davis not take that route into the endzone to begin with. It's another 2 or 3 feet, was there a defender making that impossible? I'd still say the offense failed, and they were set up to do so by the OC.

During last nights Ravens/Skins game, Madden and Michaels were talking about the Ravens coach, John Harbuagh, and they said that Baltimore hired Harbaugh because they were looking for the "Next Mike Tomlin"!!!

Thought it was pretty funny that with all the bashing of Tomlin around the old Trib Board, that others outside of the situation often see things in a different light.

I liked Tomlin at first ...
Then last year I became a little skeptical b/c of some minor things.
But this year I think he proved that he's not just talk.

Yes I still disagree w/ some minor things BUT overall, i think the players listen to him and he has passion. AND he's still learning!!!

Oh yeah for sure! In media circles and many radio shows that I listen to, Tomlin is highly revered. People just oogle at him when talking about what kind of guy he is and how fortunate the Steelers are. At least twice a week, I hear a radio person on Sirius NFL Radio or ESPN radio say something really good and respectful about him just out of the blue. He is definitely respected and settling into his own persona as a coach. People are noticing!

The pass to Davis was on 3rd down. And it was a DB (Ken Hamlin) who stopped him short of the goal line.

They did run it up the gut on 4th down, and Russell had no chance with 2-3 guys who penetrated into the backfield to throw him for a 2 yard loss.

I've never been so excited about a coach before Tomlin.

Reminds me more of Noll than Cowher.

Seems to really connect with people and his players.

He's the first coach I remember seeing on the sideline that might be as excited about this team as I am.

You have to go for a TD when you are that close. You can't assume you get a second chance at a TD. You can assume you will get close enough for a FG.

I'd love to know what happened there. To me it looked like the blocking was going to the right but Russell went to left. I have to wonder if he missed the call.

On 4th and goal, they didn't just want the points - they wanted MOMENTUM... I actually agreed with the call. As Aikman was on TV saying, "you kick the FG", I was like, "no you don't... you RAM IT DOWN THEIR THROATS." To me, that's what sets our team apart from many others... WE CAN.

BTW, if it's 4th and 1 from the 20, it's a no brainer kick... but, from the 1, with our defense, you go for it... even if you don't get it, you might cause a safety...

If you did statistical analysis regarding the probablilities of winning if you had kicked the field goal vs. going for the TD there, perhaps a FG might have been the way to go, but that is the kind of call a coach like Rich Kotite or Ray Handley makes. I was screaming for him to blast it in with Russell on 4th down, and although it didn't work, I still think it was the right call.

Yeah but your statistical analysis would fail to incorporate the Arians corollary. You know...running the same dam play on 3rd or 4th and 1 every time. Does he think its the 50's and a team from as far away as Dallas would never have seen us play or try that play down on the goalline before. Dip$hit, eveyrone has film on that same lame a$$ failed run play...mix it up for crying out loud.

:brownssuck only pretend it says Arians. I know it still wouldn't be gramatically correct, but lets just assume that anyone by the last name of Arians sucks at this point for having the same last name as this douchebag.

There was too much time left in the game to go chasing TDs. Maybe, I have too much faith in Ben's ability to win games, but, it never occurred to me that the Steelers wouldn't get a chance to score a TD to tie the game. Call it Cowher ball if you like, it's effective and won many games for Bill Cowher.

The Steelers haven't proven all year that they can move a defensive line into the end zone and run the ball for a yard. Why would this one be any different? At the very least, run a play that gives some options to Ben and not an all or nothing dive play.

It all worked out okay and we get to jaw about it, I would have rather had the points and take the game to a one possession game.

I think the Steelers are the worse 4th down team in the league. Something like 2-10.
I like the moxy, but if you're going to go for it and you have a history of not being able
to pick up 1 yard on the ground to punch it in, try something different.

What I question here is the player selection on the play. How on God's green earth do you call a pass in the flat Carey Davis when Moore has proven to be the best at this. This is another case of Arians outthinking himself. But I agree that a fade to a TE was the way to go here. And why do they refuse to roll Ben out for him to do his magic?

Hey Pap, I think that you are almost contradicting yourself here. The safe play here is to take the FG. With that you are not asking your D to do anything spectacular, just keep them from scoring in the ensuing drive - something you can ask of almost any D. Instead, coach says "I'm going for the TD, worse case scenario is we get the ball back around midfield soon." I think he has that much faith in our D.

You can't expect any run of the mill defense to get a 3 and out after a field goal, but, you can expect that from the #1 rated defense in the NFL and with the offense playing into the wind. Not getting points there was not a good feeling at the time. Lets think about the Steeler offense here for a minute. What had predicated that 4th and goal to make anyone believe that the Steelers could gain a yard on 4th down and get a touchdown?

Maybe, I'm naive about Ben, but, I like the Steelers chances in the 4th quarter if they need a touchdown with Ben as the quarterback. He's simply a winner and I have faith in him.
