Main Reason for disappointing season - Mike Tomlin
Article hits it correctly:
Mike Tomlin began showing his inability to prepare this team each week
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.
Yep. Tomlin coached those guys to turn the ball over. It was all part of the game plan....
in the meantime, Tomlin's team might go to another Super Bowl....

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

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 don't blame Tomlin for the TO's but he has to bear some responsibility for not having these guys prepared to beat bad teams. Too many mental mistakes and our fundamentals are horrible....
Our offense is so sloppy, ST's as well...
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 job of the HC is to put the team in position to win games. If five of the losses were by 3 points or less, I argue that the team was in a position to win those games and didn't get it done....
