    But from what Chadman can tell, that's just being 'American', isn't it?
    I think that's the human condition. Opinions are like buttholes. Everyone's got one. No one ever wants to look at the other guy's.

    Apparently Peter King's wife is a Pittsburgh native so she's probably the one who was reading the Steelers messageboards then informing him about what was going on in Steeler Nation.

    The scary and alarmist part is that many message board fans still believe that the Steelers will make the playoffs...

    Seriously though, I haven't seen many posts regarding the firing of Tomlin..but obviously he has to take some responsibility with the Steeler' performance this year...

    But fans ready to give up on him??? I don't get that....

    I was supposed to be a Tomlin basher last season if Arians was still with the team but, I held off. This season if Arians was still with the team, I was going to start a " Fire Tomlin " now thread. As it turned out, Rooney had enough of Arians so, no need for my scary alarmist type attitude.
    As for Tomlin and being the head coach, the stink always rises to the top. When a team isn't doing well it's on the coaches. Not the interceptions, or the fumbles that is on the players to a point but, when it starts to become your teams identity or you just expect fumbles or losing in overtime, that is the coaches fault.


    Peter King never impressed me as a sports writer he should direct his attentions to sumo wrestling. He seems to have more in common with those guys.

    I am sure glad that we don't see this happen in our modern, enlightened society.
