    Impatiently waiting patiently

    Iím not even mad anymore, Iíve just accepted that Tomlin and company are fine with mediocre football this year and have no desire to see KP right now.

    If Mitch played a full game like he did in the first half maybe we win that game..


    but if the FO is fine watching this dude go 1 for 7 on 3rd down then so be it.

    and some people think Tomlin cares about 15 non losing seasons, clearly
    looks like he is fine with ending that streak this year.

    Are we tanking?
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    I have zero expectations for this season, so these losses really don't bother me like they normally would. I just fear we're going to burn a year of potential development for Kenny.

    I'm in this boat. I knew it was a lost season. So I'm not as emotionally attached as in other years.
    From the 2010-2021 season, (A 12year 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. Currently, Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in 5 years.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís held on to Don Shula for too long for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2021 ) holding on to Tomlin for too long for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches.

    I can't imagine that he won't be put in at some point. And if we only score 13 - 17 every week, we've probably got a good chance at getting a premium pick.

    That is the problem, in 2 ways.

    1. He didn't
    2. They expect it

    I don't think we are tanking. On KP, I could be wrong on this, please let me know your thoguhts.

    Did Tomlin really want Willis and he is taking a stand against KP? It sounds absurd (I agree) but I can't think of anything else. Why let Kenny sit? It is not like he is behind an Aaron Rogers.

    Your argument only makes sense if you ASSUME Pickett steps in and plays like a star. That is a reach

    I want him to be a star but expecting a rookie to save your season is an unlikely outcome

    I could see Tomlin being encouraged by what he saw from Mitch in the first half and now sticking with him longer than we should.

    I'm also not emotionally attached this season. I'm planning to go to the Saints game and I'm really hoping Kenny is playing by then. I really think we're going to be no better than 2-6 by that time. And we'll probably have suffered at least 2 very humiliating losses by then.

    That last line is what I implied before. Not "trying" to lose, but not trying to reduce losses with a QB change knowing we cant contend for a SB.
    Saving Kenny for when we have more pieces in place. Losing more gets us better picks.

    What if Burrow never got hurt and Cincy was not garbage his rookie season?

    No Chase.

    How differently things play out last season?

    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    TCFCLTC-
    The Coach Formerly Considered Less Than Cowher
