    You constantly talk down to people who don't share your views; Just exchange ideas and move on.
    I am stating facts; 'bottom 6 almost every year...' by my count 2 out of six isn't "almost every year". Stop exaggerating.

    Maniac, you're exaggerating once again. The Steelers NFL rank in takeaways:

    2018: 29th
    2017: 17th
    2016: 14th
    2015: 4th
    2014: 23rd
    2013: 28th
    This.

    I would also have expected more strip sacks when we increased sacks from ~30 two years ago to ~50 the last two years.

    I think the lack of picks is due to lack of secondary talent over coaching or scheme.

    I also think the sack increase is probably mostly due to scheme since talent is mostly the same (added Watt, but lost Shazier).

    Again, we’ve been talking about the lack of turnovers this defense has generated for years. A one year aberration means nothing. But if that gets you thru the night to feel better, so be it.

    There is no exxageration...

    3 playoff wins in 8 years.

    Changed the math because I didn't realize Maniac was cherry picking his range of dates.

    I think you need to update your quote to "7 playoff wins and 3 1st round byes and 1 SB in 10 years". This goes for MT's full tenure inserted of your cherry picked range.

    If you count the byes as wins (because they advance through the wild card round), that's almost three times the number of wins as an average NFL team (11 playoff wins / year * 10 years / 32 teams = 3.45 expected wins in 10 years).

    But, "Fire Mike Tomlin because he had 290% of the expected playoff wins over 10 years!" doesn't work as well as your (intentionally?) misleading quote.

    not quite what the thread title is stating
    I was going to say the same thing, all your top defensive teams are out.

    It seems that a couple of you guys can’t deal with the hard truth of Tomlin’s last eight year playoff record. So now your new trick is to try and soften it by saying the byes are a win??? Get out of here. The TBW are working overtime now!! Lol

    Tomlin is like a kid who gets the letter grade B’s on the homework ( regular season games) then gets an “F” on the actual test (playoffs).

    3 playoff wins in 8 years. Stop trying to make up stuff to soften it; with the teams we’ve had in those 8 years that’s underachievment. No way around it.
