    Hahaha ... it does seem like we can’t catch a break with him.
    From the 2010-2019 season, (An 9 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

    That's what was said after he'd already said that he expected it to be overturned. Then, after it was called downed, he presumed that was the reason.

    And shortly after he said that was what he presumed was the reason, he said that this reason was confirmed.

    Definitely feels like Al Riveron has it out for us.

    Canít think of one time a call has gone to NY and came back in our favor.

    Yes, but first the former head officiating did not think it would be overturned based on what his experienced eye saw. Only after they gave a reason did he report it. He knew the rules and understood that it could be interpreted that way, but did not think it should be.

    Always hilarious when they are like “this should be overturned” but then start giving a million reasons why it won’t be...

    Yep. Again the definition of arbitrary and poorly written rules.
