    Peter King calls Steeler fans on the internet "scary" and "alarmist"

    He's right too.

    Our behavior online is so embarrassing that a columnist for Sports Illustrated is calling us out in front of the world.

    He is only calling out the nitwits who want to lay this all on Tomlin and have him fired not all Steelers fans. The truth is core of that group are the ones who didn't want him hired in the first place. They just have a reason now to come out of the shadows and express what they have always wanted.

    Fact is, the NFL acknowledges that Tomlin is probably definitely in the Top 10 of coaches in the NFL. He isn't going anywhere because the Rooneys also know it and could care less what some fans think. Tomlin will have at least a 10 year run as head coach and maybe even more.
    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!

    Is it possible that some of it is being misread? Questioning the leadership climate in the locker room is far different from asking for Tomlin's head on a platter.

    Many of us are not calling for Tomlin to be gone. That wasn't represented by Peter King.

    there are plenty of sensible, level-headed Steelers fans who don't want Mike Tomlin fired and fully realize that with all of the injuries we've had this season that it's totally understandable that we're 7-7.

    it's just that those posts don't get noticed like the sensational ones do...

    Yep. Kind of silly, isn't it? This is why people think of Steeler fans as "spoiled"?

    A few comments are not the voice of Steeler Nation. This guy is taking something and trying to run with it and I find it to be cheap sensationalism. Does he really expect all Steler fans to hold hands and have group hugs over the losses ? Yeah, we complain and vent but, we back the team and coaches each week. This is our fun, these sports, the commercialism of it and all that makes it work is because of us fans. He wouldn't have a job, the teams wouldn't be without us fans so he should just love that we as fans have our ups and downs about a kids game played by adults.

    Steeler fans who take the time to post about their team online all week aren't level headed or sensible at all times? I'm shocked...shocked I tell you.
