    Re: More fodder for the discussion fire

    Did anyone else notice that the rain was POURING when we had the ball but that the rain quit when THEY had the ball. Slippery balls get dropped. Wind throws off throws. and kicks. The field was wet and in bad shape; we are used to our own but not theirs. It's hard to see in the rain. We got our 1 bad game out of the way early.

    Well?

    I still think that there are systemic issues on the offense, and that falls on BA. That means it ultimately falls on Tomlin.
    Bite your tongue. STLR douche wouldn't like you saying anything negative about "our savior" Tomlin.
    Did Tomlin steal your girlfriend or something? I just don't get your anger with him.
    Only one Super Bowl in two seasons.

    Yeah, he should have had at least three Super Bowl victories in those two seasons.

    Our D seemed gassed in the 2nd half. IMO, going no huddle would have made it worse by putting them back on the field sooner. I don't know....it was a confusing game all together.

    Cowher slobbers for almost 15 years before he wins a Super Bowl and he is a God. Tomlin wins one in his second year, has more wins in his first two years than any coach in Steelers history and he is an "overpaid janitor." Pretty easy to see where some are really coming from.

    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Not angry. I just don't see everyone's fascination with him. He's not even 3 years into the head coaching job and everyone is ready to lock him up for the next 20 years.

    Does he need to be told to fix the offensive line and fire the offensive coordinator? Wait until Lebeau retires and he employs the Tampa 2 in Pittsburgh. That will be the beggining of the end for Steeler defensive football as we know it.

    We will forever be an 8-8 team under Tomlin. Thank you Lebeau for keeping us competitive.

    So your position is you don't like the fact that others like him so you have to dislike him to balance it out. That seems to be a viewpoint.

    Maybe people feel he has done a good job in those 2 years and feel he will only get better. By the way, the 'he will get better' part are how Tomlin feels about his coaching. He acknowledges he makes mistakes and takes responsibility for them. His whole philosophy from the start is if he wants his players to be accountable then the coaches also have to be accountable. That's one of the things I like best about him.

    maybe its because he won a sb in year two? the o-line so far this season looks much improved. steeler defensive football? so far this season with the same 3-4 zone blitz scheme kerry collins and cutler have torn our defense apart. im not blaming le beau by any means but your statements about tomlin are not too acurate. believe me if the steelers were not a successfull team under tomlin there would be a ton of people who share your opinion about tomlin
