    Is Tomlin a poor excuse for a coach?

    Question: Isn't it obvious yet that Mike Tomlin is a poor excuse for a coach? His first two drafts stunk and the defense is showing its age now that Troy's out. The players won the Super Bowl, not the coach; extending Tomlin's contract will mean the competitive death of this team.

    John Hardaway, Locust Grove, Va.

    BOUCHETTE: I wondered how long it would take for this kind of reaction. Three games after his team won the Super Bowl in his second season and you want to run him out of town? His first team also won the division despite a spate of injuries. The Steelers are 1-2, having lost both games by three points, one in overtime, both on the road. Plus, his first two drafts -- they are not solely his drafts, by the way, they do have scouts and a personnel department -- did not stink. The first draft under his tenure included linebackers Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley, who contributed greatly to that No. 1 defense and a Super Bowl victory last season. So too did current starting corner William Gay. He's also the one who installed James Harrison as a starter, and all Harrison did was set the Steelers' sack record and earn NFL defensive player of the year. I'd say that Tomlin has been a resounding success and the Steelers remained thrilled with their choice of him as their head coach.

    So you don't care if we end up with a Barry Switzer, who by the way, walked into a good situation?

    There is someone (True Fan) other then me who doesn't believe in Tomlin? I must be missing their posts.
