    If Bruce Arians wins NFL Coach of the Year this year and Todd Haley wins it next year after he takes Arizona to the playoffs then I would have to say that Tomlin is probably the issue, maybe.

    in the meantime, Tomlin's team might go to another Super Bowl....

    Besides, Bidwill will probably hire Andy Reid today....

    Yep. Tomlin coached those guys to turn the ball over. It was all part of the game plan....

    He failed to have them ready to not turn the ball over...it's called better practices, focus......when you have 3 different RB fumble in a game
    that is focus and basic football practices ...

    Really, so he should violate the CBA which limits what he can do at practice? You are aware how limited teams are in what they can do at in season practices aren't you or doesn't that support the anti-Tomlin agenda?

    The players are at fault! If Tomlin is to blame for anything it is not demanding more from LeBeau and Haley.
    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!

    This...and this.

    Mike Tomlin began showing his inability to prepare this team each week. Penalties, turnovers, and bone head decision making (players and coaches) left all of Steeler Nation reeling at the end of each game. If gun control measures are ever passed, it might help out the Steelers because maybe then they can stop shooting themselves in the foot every week. Tomlin lacked the ability to prepare this team against lesser opponents (see Raiders, Titans, Chiefs, Browns). Even when the house of cards was about to fall on this season, the Steelers were given golden opportunities to make a race out of the division and overtake the Baltimore Ravens. Instead of fighting when their backs were up against the wall, this team failed to show any fight, any heart, to make a true playoff push.

    Tomlin’s failures are essentially a very damning part of the failures for the 2012 Steelers and is the most disappointing one for me. It’s the head coach’s responsibility to get a team prepared each week no matter who the opponent is or how strong or weak a schedule you have. Poor game management once the clock starts ticking makes it even worse. Tomlin has lots to prove over the next few seasons – player development, preparedness, and game management.

    So, now Tomlin has to carry the ball for them?

    Ridiculous premise. Did Tomlin teach the players how to get injured? Did he teach them to turn over the ball? Does he need to remind them weekly not to get hurt or commit turnovers? Is that part of his failure.

    Just change the topic of future threads to "I Don't Like Tomlin So Let Me Invent Something To Criticize Him For"

    I'm a Tomlin fan but if I was in his shoes I would change a few things.

    Mendenhall wouldn't see the field until he held the ball high and tight.

    The strength coach would be fired.

    The OL coach would be fired as well.

    I would also make an example out of Gilbert by cutting him... the guy never finishes a game and he is hurting other players as well.
