    Our beloved leader


    http://www.steelers.com/video-and-audio/videos/Tomlin_Weve_got_to_be_better_than_that/895bb5bf-c1aa-46ab-8900-82b1b78a0047


    Classic example of what annoys me so much about this coach: "(guys that were healthy) were going to stay on the grass and finish the game."

    Just f-n say "stay on the field", with your mean-mugging a$s. I just don't like his coachspeak. Even when we are winning, this shtick wore thin with me. But when we are losing, and fans are clamoring for accountability, it is maddening to hear cliche ("comb with a fine-toothed comb") after stale, meaningless cliche.

    Reminds me of a politician. The "wow'ing" of words has worn off and does not translate to the field.

    I've always liked coaches that wore their emotions on their sleeves after losses or disappointments. Maybe that's why I always respected Noll and Cowher. I'm sure others didn't like them for the same reasons.

    Ben should stay on the field, he put us in the hole and at this point if he get hurt it wouldn't matter much because this team is going NO WHERE with or without him.

    Arrogance and failure to adapt to the rapidly changing environment in the NFL. Arrogance came out of earlier successes and refusal to change. Kind of like what happened to the Swiss watch industry when battery powered and digital watched came out, and they stuck to their old ways only to lose most of market share to the east.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    In a nutshell Tomlin is destroying the Steelers brand. "The standard is the standard" applies to Tomlin too in case he wasn't aware of it and this substandard product he is trying to sell us is trash.

    Ben was about to rip his WR off when ran the wrong late and the play resulted in 2 INT.

    Tomlin says to Ben "Just Let it Go"....WTF....Ben should have gone after his WR for running poor routes but Tomlin thinks otherwise...

    Tomlin is too friendly with his players...time for a change IMO...

    BB put us in that hole??? $hit...I was wondering who that idiot was! Whoever is letting BB call the defense or play defense should be fired? Was it Tomlin or Colbert?

    we are at a low point with Tomlin but I think it's something that happens to every coach when you have multiple SB appearances without a losing season.

    I wonder if the FO is shocked or if they all knew we were going to be sh!tty this year...

    This falls on Tomlin, Khan???, Colbert, Art, etc.... we've played the cap game for a while and it bit us in the azzz.
