    You pretty well put things where you are coming from resorting to homophobic remarks. Why not throw in a few "Uncle Tom's" while your trying to get more than two brain cells to fire at once.

    ...and alot of the last group of "up and coming HC candidates" have recently been fired after less than 5 years. If Tomlin was ever fired, he would be the hottest coaching candidate on the market and would have his choice of any available job. Why would we get rid of someone like that?

    THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. WE HAVE SOMEONE THAT HAS THE BALLS TO ANSWER THE FREAKING QUESTION.

    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.

    we are all so spoiled now though. What if he went 1 and done in the playoffs for the next 3 years? Most teams would kill to make the playoffs 3 years in a row but in pittsburgh tomlin isnt judged by his regular season record, his playoff appearences, or his playoff wins. Its superbowls or nothing.

    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 I believe I have the right guy for the job I can live with more than two that's for sure. At some point my patience may run out, but I can't put a number on it, because it hasn't happened and I don't know the circumstances under which they go 8-8 year after year and that could potentially make a difference. Even though the Steelers didn't make the playoffs last year it isn't like they mailed it in, so as long as the team is playing hard you live with it until you can improve the roster. Only fans and mediots that don't like Tomlin believe that there was dissension in the locker room, Tomlin lost the team, lacked discipline, etc.

    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.

    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.
