    Not good in Pittsburgh

    Hello all Steelers fans. I am gonna pull the skeleton out of the closet here and point not to the players, not the owner, not the GM as to what in the sam hill is going on with this team. This just did not start this year, it started 2 years ago when all of Bill Cowhers boys started to retire and move on. I have to start to analyze Mr Tomlin a bit. Forget about Todd Haley.....he stinks and always has. Mr Tomlin is as good as qualified as anyone to be an NFL coach. He is not qualified to be the coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers and I am going to explain myself. Where is the fire? The drive? The anger? The accountability? Shall I go on? I am positive they are having long practices and various arguments about he said she said but this is not the Pittsburgh Steelers organization that I know about. Where are the Pittsburgh Steelers? I have watched both games and I see no passion. PASSION.....PASSION.....PASSION.......No follow thru on plays no accountability. Polamalu does not even look interested anymore. First and foremost we need a power back. Get rid of Redman, Dwyer, and the guy with 3 first names.....Larod Stevens Howling. Was that really the solution? I know Bell is in here but he is not the answer my friends. Trent Richardson would have been a glorious pickup. The steelers I remember and I am 39 ) are mean, smart, tough, and most of all FEARED. They were feared 2 years ago so what happened? I will stop my rant and conclude with this. I will always remain a loyal Steeler fan but it pains me to see my team struggle. We cannot win always I know but as a team, a town, an organization I cannot see this team packing it in. We have rebuilt before and will again but the right people need to be in here. The coach takes all the credit when it goes good ....and bad. Mike Tomlin.....IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO BUILD YOUR LEGACY IN PITTSBURGH my friend. Before you know it...all of Bill Cowhers players will be gone.

    Amazing we did not see this brilliant psycho analysis when Tomlin took us to two Super Bowls and one of the best winning percetages among active coaches.

    The problem is a lack of talent and a lack of options to fix the talent because of poor management of the salary cap. That is a Colbert problem not a Tomlin problem. The 2008 and 2009 drafts killed us and again that is on Colbert.
    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!

    Executing the plays, catching passes, blocking and ball security is on the players...

    Correct....Executing better , catching better , blocking better, Basics on ball security = more practice and more practice = Coaching responsibility....
    When you think the players have practiced enough ...wrong still not enough....

    The CBA only allows for so much though. Additionally, you can only ask guys like David Paulson to do so much. Young guys usually make more mistakes than vets anyway and we have a lot of younger guys out there. I'm confident they can get better, but it will take time.

    You really believe that Tomlin has no say in the draft? He is reportedly the one who was on the Worilds bandwagon, a pick so good that the Steelers felt the need to use another first rounder.

    And what about Tomlin's first pick, Timmons? Where has he been to step up with a game changing play this year?

    "Reportedly" How does "reportedly" hold up as evidence. That is an assumption but while Tomlin may offer an opinion, it is clear in the assignment of responsibilities that Colbert has 1.5 votes to Tomlin's 1 vote when it comes to the final say in personnel.

    Rewatch the games, Timmons has not been attacking or blitzing much. Coach Dad has him dropping back into coverage more and more again. If you don't have the games watch this Sunday night how many times in a passing situation Timmons is being asked to cover someone versus being used to blitz and go after the QB.

    Isn't one of Timmons supposed stenghts his ability to cover? In week 1, we saw him get torched by another no-name TE.

    Also, it would be nice to see him not moving backwards on a goal line run.

    You have to be trolling. You just have to be at this point. You're still doing this?

    Literally waiting until Timmons might have been beaten on a specific play to point and say "SEEEEEE!!!! WE SHOULD HAVE DRAFTED POSLUSZNY!!!"

    You're too good of a Steelers fan to be stuck on this point.
