    Cowher signed 2 year extensions with 2 years left- essentially making it a 4 year deal.

    uranut.
    Why? Because I pointed out something that could be a possibility? That's all Starkey did...except I didn't take the negative view like Starkey always does. And I don't write for a newspaper.

    Other than that I did the same thing...came up with a possible reason for why the deal was done the way it was and for the length it was done for.

    Don't get mad at me just because you're a Tomlin fence sitter and now the post from the fence you're sitting on is wedged somewhere that's not comfortable for you.

    Tomlin's done a fine job here (I have realistic expectations unlike most fans) and I'd be absolutely shocked if he wasn't Steelers HC for at least 10 years.[/quote:1dzikwf0]

    ok- maybe so.

    There are a few out there- ok, maybe more than a few- who can not be objective about the Steelers under any circumstances.

    If you take off the Homer Goggles and look at this- analytically - you can see it for what it is.

    The team has a coach that they made a significant investment in. The team is not prone to knee jerk reactions.

    The coach has been tremendously successful

    and

    The coach has been pretty flipping bad

    The organization recognizes both of these facets.

    They also recognize that this season may be over before it begins - due to Ben's suspension- and thus may not be able to make a legitimate evaluation based upon this season.

    They also recognize that next season may be shot as well.

    So- they structured a contract that would allow them to further evaluate the coach- and minimize their financial exposure should that evaluation go bad.

    Tomlin has 2010 (which he had under contract anyway)
    Whatever transpires for 2011 - which would appear to be almost certainly something less than a full season.
    and 2012-

    I am not trying to be negative about this.

    I want Tomlin to succeed.

    I just recognize this for what it almost certainly is-

    The team is hedging their bet.

    Don't bring up facts when the "Tomlin-haters" need something to help them recover from the fact he will be here until 2013.
    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!
