    That is something to be proud of. Teams that have perennially been in the top 10 can hardly improve their teams as it is.

    You also couple that with lack of big-time FA acquisitions and that is really impressive!

    We need to fire the entire front office and coaching staff!

    From this week's MMQB from Peter King:

    Stat of the Week

    Have I mentioned I love how the Steelers do business? Club chairman Art Rooney II shut down any talk of replacing coach Mike Tomlin soon after the season, despite the disappointing loss to the Jaguars in the playoffs—Pittsburgh’s second home defeat to Jacksonville in the 2017 season. Losses like that one are dispiriting, to be sure, but the Steelers are the Steelers. The 2018 season will complete a stunning half century of football. In those 50 seasons, Pittsburgh will have had three head coaches.

    Now for the stat: Since the turn of the century, among active coaches who have coached at least five years, only three coaches have averaged more than 11 wins per season, including playoffs. And only two coaches have won 25 games or more in the last two seasons—Bill Belichick and Tomlin. The records of the three coaches with an average of 11 wins or more per season since 2000:

    Bill Belichick
    23 years
    W-L 278-129
    Wins Per Year 12.1
    Last 2 years 32-6
    Wins Per Year 16.0

    Mike Tomlin
    11 years
    W-L 124-67
    Wins Per Year 11.3
    Last 2 years 26-10
    Wins Per Year 13.0

    Pete Carroll
    8 years
    W-L 88-53-1
    Wins Per Year 11.0
    Last 2 years 20-12-1
    Wins Per Year 10.0

    Since you asked: In this century, among active coaches, Mike McCarthy has averaged 10.9 wins per season this century, Andy Reid 10.5, John Harbaugh 10.4, Sean Payton 10.2, Ron Rivera 9.6, Jon Gruden 9.3.

    In other good news for Tomlin:

    NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports "billionaire hedge fund manager" David Tepper has emerged as the "frontrunner" to buy the Panthers.

    One of the richest men in the country, Tepper is currently a minority owner in the Steelers. He is the founder and president of Appaloosa Management, a "global hedge fund firm based in Miami Beach." Regardless of whether or not it's Tepper, someone extremely rich is going to buy the Panthers.

    Source: NFL.com

    Tepper is one of the minority owners who was calling for the dismissal of Tomlin. So if he goes and buys the Panthers, that's one less voice against Tomlin.

    Well, the last Steeler minority owner to leave for a controlling stake in another team was Jimmy Haslam in Cleveland. Although the Rooneys have had only 3 head coaches since 1969, since buying the Browns in 2012, Haslam's gone from Pat Shurmur to Rob Chudzinski to Mike Pettine to Hue Jackson, bottoming out with a winless season this year. Plus his Pilot/Flying J company has been under investigation for bilking truckers out of millions of dollars.

    Well, if he did in fact call for Tomlin to be fired, then he has learned nothing about running a NFL franchise during his time as a Steelers minority owner and will most likely experience a similar level of success as Haslam...
