    Just doesn't make sense to me.

    And that 10-yard cushion - is it stubborness/senility, or the knowledge that the players will get beat deep play after play if they line up in press coverage?


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    I would take either pick but I'd still fire Tomlin and I'd ask Lebeau to "retire" (i.e. retire by his own choice or be "retired" by the Steelers FO). Tomlin has proven to me that he isn't HC material outside of being Coach Cliche.

    He had poor coaching decisions early in his career but it was masked by a VERY good assembled. He had very good leadership in Hines & Farrior. Leadership is gone.... The very good team is now an average team and an average team looks ill prepared and is performing way below average. The drop from good/average to WAY below average is the unacceptable part and that falls on the coaching. That is when coaches get fired.

    I would say two years unless the team becomes content with losing. He continues to fight and expects the same from the team. Tomlin has shown that he can win in this league and has a great deal of latitude from people that actually make business decisions.

    It's no coincidence that this team keeps getting expontentially worse and worse as it becomes more Tomin's team and less of Cowhers due to age/FA/retiring. It's unacceptable and it's not a 1 or 2 game slide. The writing has been on the wall for quite some time. It's not like Tomlin is having trouble replacing 1 or 2 players. That's would be completely understandable.

    People can either look at those facts and ongoing trends (compare Tomlin's replacements with the players he inherited) or just continue to bury their head in the sand. It's obvious who is impressed with Coach Cliche and who can see past the BS.

    Williams is garbage. He may develop into something better than garbage but that remains to be seen.
    If not for those two, we don't give up a 60 yarder to AP and our defense still seems stingy.
    I don't know what to do about the turnovers, but until teams have to actually SCORE points against us, we won't get any sacks. Unfortunately our O spots them a couple points and that sets up the dink and dunk all day long.
