    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.

    Kevin Colbert inches toward G.M. free agency

    The Steelers unquestionably have become excellent at finding talent. The man primarily responsible for doing so could be taking his talents elsewhere next year.

    G.M. Kevin Colbertís contract runs through the 2020 draft. As explained by Ed Bouchette of TheAthletic.com, Colbert didnít get an extension on the same day coach Mike Tomlin received his latest new deal. Bouchette adds that Colbert has told the team he prefers to go year to year.

    That approach gives both sides flexibility; the Steelers can move on with minimal financial cost, and Colbert can walk away for a better offer or a change of scenery.

    Itís hard to imagine either side wanting one. Colbert, who perhaps doesnít get the credit he deserves because heís quiet and understated, has done a great job for the Steelers. And Pittsburgh seems to be the perfect place for him.

    Unless, of course, for Steelers minority owner David Tepper is thinking about making Colbert an offer he canít refused in order to lure him to Charlotte.

    Steelers extend Tomlin's contract


    Teresa Varley

    Steelers.com


    Stability.


    In sports itís something that doesnít come easily.


    For the Steelers, itís a staple.


    That became evident again today when Coach Mike Tomlin was signed to a one-year extension, keeping him through at least the 2021 season.


    ďI am pleased to announce we have extended Mike Tomlinís contract through the 2021 season,Ē said Steelers President Art Rooney II. ďMike is one of the most successful head coaches in the National Football League, and we are confident in his leadership to continue to lead our team as we pursue our goal of winning another championship.Ē


    Tomlin, who was hired on January 22, 2007, will be entering his 13th season as the Steelers head coach. He is only the third coach the team has had since 1969, joining Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher on that exclusive list.


    ďI am very appreciative of this contract extension and opportunity and want to thank Art Rooney II and everyone in the organization for the support in my first 12 seasons,Ē said Tomlin. ďWe have a goal of winning the organizationís seventh Super Bowl championship, and I couldnít be more excited about this upcoming season.Ē


    Tomlin, 47, has guided the Steelers to two Super Bowl appearances. He became the youngest coach in NFL history to not only lead his team to the Super Bowl, but also win it when the Steelers defeated the Arizona Cardinals, 27-23, in Super Bowl XLIII.


    The Steelers have won six AFC North Division titles under Tomlin. Under his guidance the Steelers have made the playoffs eight times and played in the Super Bowl twice, Super Bowl XLIII and Super Bowl XLV.


    In the regular season Tomlin has led the Steelers to a 125-66-1 record in 12 seasons, reaching 100 career wins in the fewest games (157) in team history and the best start by a coach in team history. He joined Noll and Cowher as the third coach in Steelers history to reach 100 regular season wins, and the Steelers became the first franchise in NFL history to have three different head coaches reach that 100-win milestone. He also became the eighth head coach in NFL history to win 100 games (regular season) in their first 10 seasons.


    Tomlin and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger have set a Steelers record with 115 regular season wins, the most ever by a head coach-quarterback combination in team history. They broke the record set by Chuck Noll and Terry Bradshaw. The 115 wins are the fourth-most by a head coach-quarterback duo in the NFL.

    LMAO...all the haters saying this wouldn't happen. I guess all the noise now is the goal posts being moved to try to turn this into a negative.

    Team president Art Rooney II said it was Kevin Colbert's decision to wait till after the season to decide on his future.

    Yep I guess all the talk about ownership being tired of Tomlin and that Tomlin lost the team was just a bunch of nonsense.

    Like I've said, I think Tomlin is here for as long as he wants to be. He has the support of the Rooneys, and, short of Tomlin being charged with some kind of major crime, I look for that to continue.

    However, that doesn't mean Tomlin did a stellar job with the team last season, nor that he's been particularly good in the playoffs for a number of years.

    Especially since it was pointed out how we don’t extend him until late July or August.

    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    My official proclamation: WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. SO WHY DELAY THE INEVITABLE?

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    Report: Some Steelers minority owners didnít want to extend Mike Tomlin

    Posted by Mike Florio on July 29, 2019

    The Steelersí minority owners periodically huff and puff, but they lack the ability to blow anyoneís house down.

    As it relates to the recent contract extension given to coach Mike Tomlin, Ed Bouchette of TheAthletic.com reports that some were opposed to it.

    Owner Art Rooney II nevertheless extended Tomlin through 2021, with a team option for 2022. It means that Tomlin would have a two-year buyout, if the Steelers were to decide after the season to make a change.

    Itís not the first time that members of minority ownership have made their voices heard regarding Tomlin. In early 2018, PFT reported that some of the minority owners wanted Rooney to fire Tomlin after a disappointing playoff exit capping a season in which questions were raised about flaws with discipline and situational football.

    The fact that the minority owners didnít want Tomlin to get an extension obviously didnít prevent it from happening. As Bouchette observed in response to our report regarding the push to get Tomlin fired, Rooney will not be listening to what folks with no actual power over the organization have to say, even if they technically own a piece of it.

    ďItís beyond ludicrous for one or a few minority owners to even think they have enough influence to persuade Rooney to can Tomlin,Ē Bouchette said. Thus, itís also beyond ludicrous for one or a few minority owners to even think they have enough influence to persuade Rooney to not give Tomlin a new contract.

    Still, they have an opinion ó and even if the opinion of those minority owners conflicts with the will of the majority owner, it meshes with the mood of the fan base, especially when the team is perceived to be underachieving.
