im pretty sure he could go 8-8 for at least 5 years...man wouldnt that be frustrating
Also, id have to think about who the next HC would be....a ton of the big recent up and coming HC candidates have jobs already. Who would be on deck?
Personally, I would really want the change if he went 8-8 two more years. You have a franchise QB, a potential HOFer, and A LOT of talent on this roster that is now (finally) young. IMO, you shouldn't be satisfied with 4 straight 8-8 seasons.
The steelers havent been in the superbowl in over 3 years...boohoo us right?
Id like to see ben get at least 1 more ring, id also like to see him never have a losing season. But who knows now, time is running short for him

If the Steelers would let Tomlin go as many would like he'd be unemployed for 5 minutes. He's respected around the league by peers, players and management, Mike Tomlin has a job in the NFL until he says he doesn't want one, IMO and I hope it's with the Steelers.
1.25) Artie Burns - CB, Miami (Mackensie Aleander)
2.58 ) Sean Davis - S/CB, Maryland (Deion Jones)
3.89) Javon Hargrave - DT, S. Carolina St. (Nick Vannett)
4.123) Jerald Hawkins - OT, LSU (Deandre Houston-Carson)
6.220) Travis Feeny - OLB, Wash (Darius Jackson)
7.227) Demarcus Ayers - WR, Hou (Graham Glasgow)
7.246) Tyler Matakevich - OLB, Temple (Travis Feeney)
The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?
I hit him as hard as I could - Jack Lambert
I could do 2 more .500 before looking for a new coach and this would have to be 2 more .500 season's with a decent/healthy roster.
If we lost a key player like Ben, AB or Timmons I wouldn't hold that season against him.
If Tomlin continues to field teams that start 0-4 and 2-6, he will be in trouble. As more time passes from the Cowher-built teams. he better show some upswing or it will appear that all MT did was win one ring with Cowher's team. He really needs to show progress this year. To be fair, being the youngest coach to win a SB, he did need some time to learn some things, regardless of initial success. I believe he's had to work through a broken locker room (2012), lack of leadership problems. He never had to face those things before and he had to learn how to fix them. The team he inherited was stacked with leaders across the board, making the head coaching job far easier.
I keep hearing Franchise QB this and that from 09 but that same franchise QB was 80% of the reason we missed the playoffs. Last year 0-4 was almost directly his fault with plenty of TO, the same can also be said when he came back from injury the second half two seasons ago. So I don't see the reason he keep saying how many losing season s with a Franchise Qb. But to answer you question 2 more sub par seasons and then you pull the trigger.
