These guys really just get lazy and unfocused and awful lot. Who would be responsible for those areas, again?
Wouldn't call Tomlin's drafting 'crappy', but it certainly seems to lack a degree of 'leadership quality' in the players brought onboard. As this team gets older, it's becoming more apparent that there is a lack of 'team leaders' in the up-and-coming ranks. Might be a good time to address that..
Schiavone's Race Career:
But to answer your question...you don't blame the coaches when turnovers affect the outcome of the game, you don't blame coaches when players fail to execute or just get physically beat during a play - that happens in sports & thats what happened today. I'm not saying that coaches don't have bad days like the rest of us, but thats not the problem here - the players are. I don't know what standard or who you're comparing Tomlin to, but just keeping to the Steelers do you really think that Cowher & Noll never had games or seasons like this? Tomlin is one of the best HC's in the game, does it make him perfect - no...but he's a helluva lot better than the Ken Whizenhunt's, John Harbaugh's & Rex Ryan's of the world. Stop acting like chicken-little, we're still position to get to the playoffs & still a team that will have a puncher's chance to take the title.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...
