    Exactly. Tomlin is going with someone he knows and has seen operate first hand who has a solid resume. Maybe he should just advertise the job in the Post Gazette or take someone elese's opinion on a coach he knows nothing about. The cronyism comments is just plain stupid talk. Every coach in the league has other coaches he has relationship with and either gives them jobs on their staffs or gets them jobs. It is exactly the same way in college. It's all about networks and having a network of people you know and trust.
    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!

    1. Eric Ebron, TE
    2. Calvin Pryor, S

    That cracked me up. Although, he'd still most likely get a Pittsburgher which seems to be a problem for some. Maybe he should go with the Wall Street Journal.

    The initial 'Apparently you have to be from Pittsburgh to get a coaching job here' was stated in a joking manner as 3 of our last 4 new coaching hires are from Pittsburgh. Not sure what is getting everyone fired up.

    If you guys don't like these old coaches call them up and tell them about it. Richard Manns phone number is 9 and Dick Lebeaus phone number is 3.

    Heck, Bruce Arians was our receivers coach so by comparrison, this guy will be like having Vince Lombardi.

    "For the past few years, Mann has been assisting and consulting players as they prepare for the NFL Draft. Prior to joining the Buccaneers, Mann spent the 2001 season as the Washington Redskins wide receivers coach."

    By past few years, do they mean12 years? Wow, he must be a hot commodity in the NFL circles. No coaching jobs in the last 12 years? Nice hire Tomlin.

    Gotcha. I misread that. So three years he was unemployed?

    So many people are so quick to judgment in the face of a complete lack of evidence. Invariably, these premature assessments are negative. It seems that if you dislike Tomlin (for whatever reason) you must also dislike any hires done under his tenure. Really don't understand why people feel the need to jump to conclusions all the time around here, but the lack of rationality is mind boggling.

    I don't know if that is fair. I think it's people being critical and judgemental. I've liked certain things Tomlin did this year from a discipline perspective (i.e. Mendenhall situation) but other decisions are certainly questionable.
