    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 2010-2022 season,(A 13 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. Currently, Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in 6 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 2023) 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.

    And where would they use this premium pick? On a LB? Don't make me cry.

    You could do worse, Whisper. Franchise QBs - Bradshaw, Brady, Pey Pey, Montana but NOT Ben - are once a decade. Think about it. George Allen won at once everywhere he coached. But George was crazy and was banned forever. Just do what George did and don't be crazy, It's not hard

    Relax. KP8's already "Made" in mob parlance. Career NFL clipboard holders make ooh gobs more dough than what 99 percent of us Proles can dream of ever making

    That is the problem, in 2 ways.

    1. He didn't
    2. They expect it
