    I'm sure aome, one for sure, will be disappointed that they can't blame Tomlin for the prep of the defense and in game play calling.

    The bottomline is that Butler needs to figure this out quick or he can get fired just like LeBeau did for not getting it done. There was always a concern that maybe Butler wasn't a big enough break from LeBeau...let the hate begin in 3...2...1...

    Who elevated Butler to DC? Who kept him on after a dismal defensive showing to close out last season? Who sits with him to formulate the game plans, and oversees his preparation of the defense every week?

    I get it that you cannot blame Tomlin for all of Butler's failures, but I sure as heck can't see how you can absolve him of all the blame for this mess that is our defense. After LeBeau left, MT got to call the shots with this D, bring in his guy for coordinator and run the system he wanted. In spite of a bunch of high draft picks added on that side of the ball, we've got the crapshow we now see on the field.

    I do think Tomlin is, overall, a good coach, but I don't think he has felt all that much urgency to have to make seriously-needed changes to what clearly isn't working. Maybe some blame does go to Rooney, too, for not making him feel more heat.

    classic tomlin not taking any blame. of course he isnt calling all the plays during the game, but he sure as hell made up the plays and installs them during the week. he is aware of what calls are to made and not made in certain situations.

    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.
