    For all the "geniuses" who want to get rid of Tomlin, take note of what has happened this week. Gase fired by Miami and hired by team in same Division. Arizona hires Kingsbury who barely had a winning record in college and was never anything significant at the NFL level. Green Bay hires a guy to be head coach whose only qualifications are that he was close enough to Sean McVey to smell his farts. Broncos hire a 60 year old lifer who no one ever made a head coach before because he had one year of great defense.

    So much for the theory that the talent is just waiting to become the next Steelers coach when we dump a guy who has never had a losing record. That is why the Rooney's have been doing this since the 1930's and you guys watch games from your La Z Boys.

    What if Tomlin hired an AB coach. Someone to be his dedicated coach to keep him in line. I'd suggest he offer that job to Ryan Clark.

    I find it hard to believe that this world is so deficient in football coaching talent that the greatest organization in the NFL should have to "Settle" when it comes the head coaching position. Winning by "Default" is not winning at all lol

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    what Tomlin needs:

    Falcons assistant Kyle Flood will handle clock management and replays

    Posted by Michael David Smith on January 10, 2019

    Falcons head coach Dan Quinn has shaken up his coaching staff this offseason, and one of the major changes is to have a coach whose responsibilities include clock management decisions and making the call on replay challenges.

    Quinn announced today that Kyle Flood, who spent the last two years as the Falcons’ assistant offensive line coach, will have a new senior assistant role that includes in-game decision making, clock management strategy, timeouts and challenges.

    Before joining the Falcons’ staff Flood spent four years as the head coach at Rutgers, so he has plenty of experience with managing games. That’s usually the head coach’s job, but a head coach has a lot to think about during a game, and it makes sense to have an assistant who can think only about those key decisions.

    Giving a coach specific responsibilities relating to clock management is a smart move, one that Rams head coach Sean McVay did a year ago when he hired Jedd Fisch as an analyst and, in McVay’s words, “clock management specialist.” It won’t be surprising to see more coaches make these kinds of hires.

    Why Penguins Coach’s Challenges Succeed but Steelers Fail

    December 27, 2018

    By Dan Kingerski 

    Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has never had a losing record. In 11 seasons, the Steelers head coach has consistently won everything, except coach’s challenges. Tomlin’s abysmal record with coach’s challenges has never been more apparent than his 0-for-10 record challenges since January, 2017. Across the river, Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan has won three straight challenges and four this season.

    It’s about process. The Penguins have one. Apparently, the Steelers do not.

    The Penguins have a set of dedicated eyes in the sky which belong to Andy Saucier.

    “Sauce is an all-star,” said Sullivan on Dec. 15 after yet another successful challenge which denied the Penguins’ opponent a goal.

    Last Sunday, Tomlin refused to challenge an incomplete pass which likely would have been overturned to a turnover in the Steelers favor. Tomlin reasoned, “(the officials) were definitive about it and we moved on.”

    Oh, well if the stripes say so. By all means, trust the same referees which took the ball from the Steelers via erroneous pass interference calls after the Steelers defended crucial fourth down attempts, or as Tomlin put it, “won the situation.”

    Sure, trust those guys.

    NFL games have between 12 to 20 cameras which are able to show blades of grass bend beneath tapping toes and slightly deflected footballs which would otherwise negate pass interference, all in high definition and super slow motion.

    And yet Mike Tomlin’s gut is more than an arbiter weighing input from specialists. Tomlin’s gut seemingly is the Steelers replay team.

    “(Saucier) is terrific at breaking down those situations because we don’t get a good enough look on the bench,” said Sullivan. “We sat as a coaching staff before the season started and we defined a criteria on what we’re going to challenge and what we’re not.”

    “And so we try to define a criteria as clearly as we can. And now everybody has a role and a responsibility,” Sullivan continued. Some of those responsibilities fall on Penguins goaltending coach Mike Buckley who weighs in on goaltender interference. Other challenges such as offside fall on Saucier to quickly review tape and communicate with the coaches and Sullivan.

    But Mike Tomlin’s wishful thinking and a jumbotron are OK, too, right?

    Baseball teams have numerous monitors each with numerous angles set up in the clubhouse for replays. Challenges are not left to the whims or hopes from the bench. As Sullivan admitted, the view from the bench and certainly the sidelines sometimes over 50 yards away isn’t good enough.

    Goaltending interference is every bit as confusing or nebulous as the NFL catch rule(s), so each sport has its potential reviews without a clear answer, but the Penguins have managed to win four of their last six challenges, regardless.

    The Penguins have won playoff games because they’ve taken opponents’ goals off the board. It is easier to wonder if Tomlin were just 1-4 instead of 0-5 this season if the Steelers would be resting starters, Sunday instead of playing and hoping for their playoff lives.

    “I just think (Saucier) is an all-star,” repeated Sullivan. And the have Penguins reaped the rewards in big moments and small. Despite not having the tens of millions of dollars which flows through NFL teams at their disposal, the Penguins not only have a system in place but a video replay setup, too.

    And imagine, Mike Sullivan’s success rate is only in the middle pack in the NHL. Somehow, NHL teams with far fewer cameras and grainy looks at the play are overturning calls and setting right the games. Conversely, the Steelers rely on emotion and perception from 150 feet away, which is just not good enough.

    Nor is taking the officials word for it.

    That is why the Penguins challenges have been successful, and the Steelers are 0-5 this season and 0-10 over the past 23 months.

    I think enough time has passed to assume Butler is coming back.
