    My problem is that our front office continues to be irresponsible with the cap. All of these restructures have caused a nightmare with our depth and ability to extend players.
    If it were just winning then Barry Switzer would be still coaching. Fact is that Tomlin has gone from winning a SB with 97% of the past coaches players to losing a SB to losing to Tim Tebow to 8-8 to at best 9-7 or at worst 5-11 this year. The players that have been drafted under his tenure have not panned out at all. There are few players on this team that are better than the one he took the place of. On offense is Ben and more Ben. On defense it is Keisel, Ike, Clark and Troy.

    Sorry, but on Defense, Keisel sucks this year, as does Clark. Heyward is our best DL ... and btw... Timmons took "FOOTE'S Spot" .. a definite upgrade ...On offense it's Antonio and Ben. DeCastro IS an upgrade over an aging and almost spent Faneca. This idea that Tomlin hasn't drafted "anyone" that's an upgrade or who has panned out is just a myth.
    Truthfully, it doesn't matter ... hold your breath, count to a million, yada yada yada ... Tomlin will still be here. And as much as we all like to act like "WE" own the team and will make this decision .. "WE" don't and won't.

    Addressing #2: Cowher started the previous year 2-6 and finished the 2nd half 6-2.
    The yr. started off with Ben having an appendectomy after a motorcycle accident.

    I don't know that there will ever be a consensus on whether Tomlin's actions were intentional or not. To me, it seems obviously not. But I'll say this... if it was intentional, then we have one incredibly dumb coach at the helm. National TV, Primetime game on Thanksgiving, looking at the JUMBOTRON, knowing what's on TV and you're waiting for the play to come to you so that you can attempt to impact its outcome? That just doesn't seem like a Mike Tomlin move to me.

    What has he done lately?
    Cowher has been undefeated since 2006

    Whether you like Mike Tomlin or not he has done nothing during his tenure as the Steelers coach to indicate that he is a cheater, ignorant or stupid, thinking that he was standing on the field to potentially disrupt a Raven's touchdown is ludicrous. He may be many things, but he isn't a cheater or stupid, he got caught up in the moment and failed to get off the field when the play got to him, the Steelers had just closed the gap in the game.

    This is so much ado about nothing that it's ridiculous.

    Yep. No precedent to indicate he would jeopordize his career and do this intentionally. To think otherwise is just playing to an agenda.
    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!
