Why are we trying to compare players that have played and completed their entire careers with guys like Mike Adams who is one year removed from college?
People will say whatever they like, construe the argument in a fashion to suit their argument, and label it the truth.
Is Pouncey a better OC than Dawson? Is Cortez Allen better than Rod Woodson? Is DeCastro better than Faneca? Some of the comparisons given are seasoned vets vs 1st year NFL players.
Could Tomlin draft better? Sure. But that same argument must be levelled at Cowher too. Cowher also had several years with Tom Donahue assisting in the personnel decisions before Colbert came on. How much influence did Donahue have over some of Cowhers great players?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion whether you agree with it or not.
If you just want the "love affair" posts, simply ignore everyone that might criticize a person you have that love affair with. Use the ignore feature on the message board. That is why it's there for.

You have no point, you hailed Cowher as this drafting guru.
When truth of the matter is for most of his drafting career Cowher struggled. And it was Dan Rooney who saved his legacy in 2004.
