    Most Tomlin detractors predicted 4-12, 5-11, 6-10 this year after the 0-4 start.

    We finished the season 6-2 and missed the playoffs by inches. It wasnt a great year or even a good year but a season we thought was over after 4 games turned into a season we watched until the last game on Sunday.

    7 years into Tomlins career and we haven't had a losing season yet.

    And, I'd bet his job is safe past 2014 regardless of the won/loss record, the only ones saying he's on the hot seat are those that wish he was never hired.

    This is a fact. I think next year will tell the tale. I think the Rooney's would agree too...by saying that "Tomlin's job is safe thru 2014"
    You are placing that in quotes as if someone in a position with the Steelers actually said that...

    It didn't happen...it was reported by Ian "I wouldn't be surprised if Ben Roethlisberger requested a trade" Rapoport...

    Can you honestly look at the current roster situation (ie aging players, lack of depth, salary cap, strength of divisional opponents, etc) and tell me that 6-10 next year is not a real possibility?

    That's a dumb question. If it were up to me, I'd like to go undefeated every year and win the SB..

    and most tomlin apologists predict 12-4, 14-2, 13-3 and 11-5 before the last couple seasons started. we had a terrible first round exit to tebow and then havent made the playoffs in 2 years. 7 years under tomlin and we havent made the playoffs in 3 of those, (including 2 in a row) and havent had a winning season the past 2.
    1) CB D Dennard
    2) OLB R Shazier
    3) DE J Ellis
    4) WR M Bryant
    5a) OG D Yankey
    5b) OLB J Tripp
    6a) RB D Archer
    6b) NT D McCullers
    7) WR J Janis
