    Credit to the coaches: RBs

    For about a month of games now, all RBs who have played have been very decisive hitting holes. Prior to that only Warren was doing so. Someone got through to them, whether it was the RB coach, OL coach, OC, or Coach T, but whatever happened it is working.

    This is why you get more respect than others who routinely criticize Tomlin. There IS a legitimate case to be critical. But acknowledging seeing positive when it is there shows an open mind. Just as those of us who tend pro Tomlin need to honestly acknowledge his miscues.

    When both sides can debate without agenda, it is really fun.




    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

    Honestly, that's as much about having a passing threat as it is anything else... It all changed when KP took over -- there just seems to be more running room instead of constantly facing an 8-man box

    DeVille's 2024 offseason motto: Throw KP into the deep end and let him sink or swim. If he sinks, draft a 1st round QB in 2025

    defenses have to back up now that Pickett and Pickens are picking them apart.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    Pickett, and Pickens, picked apart a peck of pickled peppers.

    Thanks...ever notice that positive posts like this go largely unreplied to? I like to complain, sure, but I don't like being miserable. I want to see good things in the team.

    And semblance of a running game allowed them to run a positive screen play yesterday for the first time in many years.

    you're a very good poster, we're all frustrated but you're able to keep it real and I respect that.

    Its the negativity bias.

    We’re hardwired be more influenced and react to the negative. This stuff starts in infancy and researchers have measured electrical activity in the brain and it’s significantly higher when people are presented with negative thoughts/threats.

    Bottom line, being happy takes work. But just like everything else, who has the time to consistently put in the work to train yourself to be happy and see the positive and be motivated by the positive?

    And I don’t think online interactions help because the negative gets amplified and people get even more sucked in and never get a break.
