    It's good to see some optimism here, while they certainly have their challenges ahead a 10-6 or 11-5 record is in the ballpark.
    Team health especially on our O-line probably will play a pivitol role in 2013, as for Mike this coming season may be his toughest challenge and define him more as a coach.
    Keep in mind his winning percentage since he was named coach of the Steelers is impressive. I'm not going to make any assumptions at this point, all of us will have a better evaluation of the team in January.

    Btw, Winning percentage of Noll, Cowher, and Tomlin:

    Noll: 566 *4 SB WINS

    Cowher: 623 1-1 SB RECORD


    Tomlin: 656 1-1 SB RECORD

    Your analogy is WAY, WAY off. Browns fans don't despair easily; they do the exact opposite. No matter how many losing seasons they have, the fans still sell out every game and think every season is the season things will turn around. Ig Pgh had any where near as much losing going on, fans would stop showing up. Even with one down season, they can't even give tickets away. Yes, the games are technically sold out, but fans stop coming. And that is just with one down season.

    And to be fair, it wasn't "JUST" and 8-8 season. They were a 6-3 team, and a 6-3 team should always make the play offs. They failed to do that. They collapsed. They had no discipline or team chemistry, regardless if Ben is in denial or not.

    Team chemistry doesn't win games.

    In 2009 we were 6-2 and didn't make the playoffs. Did that team have no discipline or chemistry or did they magically find it the following year when they went to the SB? I'm just trying to understand your, what do you call it, "logic"?

    dont feel bad, at least you've finally smartened up. there are still plenty of fans today that still get all tingly when tomlin throws out his assinine cliches. look at the lemmings that use the term 'splash plays'. i mean seriously ..............lol

    I understand and agree with Tomlin's point - offseason champions are rarely regular season champions. However, the one-liners and tough talk ring hollow. Hopefully the Steelers aren't unleashing hell when they are revisited in the fall.

    Would we have been happier if Tomlin had said "Holy moly- we're screwed!"?

    I always find how these things are written rather humorous. They act like Tomlin sat there, started tapping his juice glass with his fork like he was ready to give a speech, stood up, and said 'See us in the fall, not in the Spring'. Where is the content that this was said? Who asked him what? The media are a bunch of douchebags. I can't imagine being famous and having those leeches jamming microphones in your face a dozen at a time.

    I honestly wish things were like they were 40 years ago where I didn't know every single detail about every facet of famous people's lives. I'm not old enough to have experienced living in a time when cool assed people like James Dean or The Rat Pack or Babe Ruth or any people like that were in their heyday...but if the media back then was like it is now, those guys would of been ripped apart for drinking, womanizing, drug use, etc.
