    Tomlin -- NOT the Coach of the Year

    I know, I know, he had a lot of bad breaks and some big deficiencies on offense. But when you're in position to lock down a playoff berth, and can't win 1 game in your final 3 (including vs. the Jets), sorry, you're not getting COTY. It really wasn't his fault we didn't make the playoffs, but not sure he did enough this month to help the team.

    Hate to say it, but my vote would have to go to Hairbag.

    Don't forget the Titans coach. But yeah, you've got a point.
    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 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.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    Anyone who would have picked him over the HCs of SF GB, Baltimore, Buffalo or KC don't know much about the game anyway.
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and 25% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    The main difference between Tomlin and John Harbaugh is that in 2018 the Steelers drafted Terrell Edmunds and the Ravens drafts Lamar Jackson.

    Harbaugh maximizes his talent.

    The Steeler would never have drafted Lamar Jackson. Ben was about to throw 5,000 yards prior to that draft. He was well entrenched. Never in a million years would they have done what Baltimore did to Flacco.

    I am sorry it's a fools paradise to believe that he was even on our draft boards (ever).

    Perhaps that is why Harbaugh > Tomlin. (emphasis on PERHAPS)

    I agree that the Steelers probably did not have LJ on their board but damn, Terrell Edmunds was being projected as a third round talent and he’s played like it while Jackson is grabbing an MVP award.

    Jackson shouldn't have been on their list.
    Other positions were much bigger priorities.

    I agree with this statement, I also agree with The Man of Steel assessment that Edmunds was a reach.

    But as I have been chastisted in another thread, Mr. Colbert is a fricken genius and we can't part with him. Baltimore looks loaded to me not just at QB.
