    A manager or coach's job isn't to motivate. It's to lead. To strive for and reach a common shared goal. To work for the people who they manage to remove obstacles and help them be successful. The only motivation that works is the kind that comes from inside. Work hard to develop individual strengths and help them maximize their success in their own way and help them see how that contributes or ties into the broader goals. Success breeds success. And the motivation will happen on its own generally.

    In any great organization, the leader isn't a boss. He's a servant with a vision.
    I guess we need no leaders in the human race anymore. Everyone will automatically do all the preparation and work that's needed without anyone managing them. That's what you guys think. What does leadership include? Motivation. Good leadership does motivate, so saying you just need leadership and not motivation is really not possible. One comes with the other.

    Even if you wanted to buy into this argument of it being "Cowher's players", Tomlin did more with them in 5 years than Cowher did with his.

    Cowher made more than his fair share of poor game day decisions, but that was before you were born so you wouldn't remember.
    My Steeler/football knowledge would dwarf yours. If pro players just naturally gave full effort and would practice enough, train enough, etc. why do they pay head coaches so much $? You guys are clueless.

    I should start my own version of Twitter...instead of a 140 character limit, you should be required to format all of your posts in a 5 syllable, 7 syllable, 5 syllable format.

    This thread is pointless. Tomlin's successor is obviously whomever is directly under him on the janitorial org chart. I mean, this is obviously a union shop (otherwise he wouldn't be an overpaid janitor) so it's going to be based on seniority.
    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."
