    Last week's PG chat (9/18 ):

    N: Hello. Thank you for the chat. I am not a Tomlin hater but why is Tomlin not getting more heat for the defensive woes of the Steelers? From everything I have heard, he has more and more fingerprints over the defense. We have communication issues every year. We do not have a spy on Wilson , as per Dupree admission. Are cliches enough to be head coach? Thank you very much.

    Gerry Dulac: I don't think people realize how much of the defensive calls (and game plan) Tomlin makes.

    It's interesting that there was an article on the Depot to the contrary. I'd like to read it if you have the link. Seems like it would be a good question to send them on the podcast if there's a contradiction between what they've said on there and what they post on the site.
    NB, here it is; don't know if this guy is a regular contributor or ad hoc (see #6):

    Honestly i call BS because every time the camera panned on Tomlin he looked like he was in space
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    What the hell does that have to do with convo i was just having? He was saying the communication on the last drive is why they scored and i pointed out that the penalty is why they scored because the D had stopped them.

    I dont think bringing in Barron was a bad move i just think Barron hasnt played well, Barrons skill set is why he was brought in and it was something our defense was lacking, but so far he has just been bad.
