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.
    Not just "hires" but pretty much draft picks done by Tomlin too. The anti-Tomlin faction is still there in the shadows waiting to jump out anytime they see an opportunity.
    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!

    Can't we say that about any coach who has every coached in the NFL to include Noll and Cowher? Ask yourself why is the standard different for Tomlin? I think it is obvious.

    I'm not sure what you mean by critical. The two main definitions are "Inclined to judge severely and find fault" and "Characterized by careful, exact evaluation and judgment". I would say that I see much more of the 1st but wish there were more of the 2nd.

    Reminds me of the anti-Ben people. "He had a bad a game!" "Bench him!" "He sucks!" "Throw trash in his yard!" "BLOW UP HIS HOUSE! RARRFGLELEL!!!1" Friggin pitchforks and torches as far as the eye can see at one bad game... one bad decision... one bad throw...

    It's not different.... People criticizing Tomlin is no different or worse then you criticizing Lebeau in just about every defensive thread on this forum

    Or should we just keep the Steelers blinders on and think all is well after our superb 8-8 season?
