Thread: What Tomlin Can Do Now...

  1. #1

    What Tomlin Can Do Now...

    ...to improve the Steelers' chances of winning:

    --Order Haley to implement a spread offense much of the time. Have the O start the game in the spread...the shock might at least keep the opponent on their heels for a minute or two.

    --Have Ben run the no-huddle on at least three series.

    --Get Markus Wheaton involved as a receiver.

    --Less vertical routes for Brown, Sanders, and Cotchery. Try Wheaton on a few of them.

    --Don't use Cotch to run reverses.

    --More Felix Jones, less Isaac Redman.

    --Give Max Starks a call.

    --Let Ben call the play to get the snap off before the opponent can throw a challenge.

    --Emphasize to the D to get turnovers. Harp on it in practice.

    --Emphasize to the O to not give up turnovers. Harp on it in practice.

    Well, then scratch "adding Starks" and replace it with "finding SOMEBODY who can HELP this putrid OL"...

    i think your list is pretty good.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Give Ben the offense and tell Haley to sit and watch, done, end of story.

    That's what Tomlin can do right now to improve the Steelers chances. Ben has played behind lines worse than this one and without top notch WRs before, so, Ben can win under these circumstances.
