    Oooh someone SLIPPED UP.




    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

    We do need to win a playoff game. But TJ who has had one good HALF for his career in the playoffs needs to show up himself to DESERVE anything.

No, not the "patty cake" D, who couldn't make a tackle on a QB for a 30-yard run, or an offense that couldn't make a 1st down.

    Five reasons Tomlin DID deserve a new contract:

    1. Rooney wanted it
    2. Rooney wanted it
    3. Rooney wanted it
    4. Rooney wanted it
    5. Rooney wanted it

    Let me add:

    6. Rooney could care less what anti Tomlin fans think or want

    There is truth written here.... the defensive disappearing acts are as much to blame as the offensive ineptitude.

    The reality, though, is the Steelers limped into the playoffs with a defense featuring old man Jack alongside the vaunted Robinson at LB, a backup, well-traveled CB in Rowe, a now FA Peterson who was what we thought he was most of last season. The offense? Well, the most important position in football with a mismatch for the day....

    I know injuries happen but we had $30 Mill standing on the sidelines in the playoffs last year.
    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"

    Well, there you have it. But Tomlin got a new deal regardless. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Yea, him!!!!!!!! Bottom half of coaches in the league.


    1 . Has not won a playoff game in 7 years and counting. What other coach has done this? Only the legendary Lewis. It will be 8. He will break the record.


    2. His coaching style encourages a bad culture of divas which distract the team and he can not control them.


    3. He knows Jack about offense. He is clueless


    4. His clock management and use of the red flag is poor.


    5. He under-achieves relative to the talent we have and does not make half time adjustments.



    The real problem is Art Rooney II, who is happy with Tomlin, and the Rooney rule prevents Tomilin for being fired under Art.
    Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in seven years and counting. The earliest will be eight years. I guess that in Art Rooney's II, opinion is worth a 3 year extension.

    Our 2024 draft looks to be grade A. Our 2023 draft is an A. The roster is talented, but Mike Tomlin is still the head coach.

    *** Mike Tomlin is the best coach since the AFL- NFL merger that has not won a playoff game in 8 seasons or more. It's either him or Lewis. ***

    The Rooney Rule is not protecting Tomlin from being fired. That’s dumb.

    We simply don’t fire head coaches that outperform expectations most years.

    Is the playoff record trash lately? Indeed it is.

    However, we also know most people bashing Tomlin for losing playoff games didn’t even have the team in the playoffs to start the season.

    Some of you prop up coaches for missing the playoffs and protecting their playoff record.

    Who on here doesn't think the team is trending in the right direction? While there are certainly question marks as far as the QBs, the development of the O-line, or WR2, I personally feel pretty good about the additions to this team and where they are headed.

    If you don't like the direction the team is heading, then fair enough but I would be curious as to why.

    The point is that if you do like the direction the team is heading, then it makes perfect sense to extend Tomlin. What is the downside? Angering the anti-Tomlin faction of the fanbase? Making Tomlin feel like he can just coast because he got paid despite no recent playoff wins? Ridiculous considerations to be sure.

    On the other hand, the upside is getting that question out of the way for the press to eliminate the inevitable distraction and sending a message to the team and fanbase that ownership believes in the direction they are heading. It creates stability throughout the organization. As long as you believe the team is heading in the right direction, then it is the only logical move to make. If you don't believe that, then it's time to cut bait.

    In the end, giving Tomlin an extension or not has little bearing on how long he'll be here, should the team continue to underperform in the playoffs. Although it is true that Rooney very likely would not want to pay a coach not to coach, there is nothing stopping an orchestrated exit or even a trade of Tomlin at any point. As the article stated and as we all know, he would be an extremely hot commodity for any team looking for a new HC. If the Raiders got two 1st-rounders and two 2nd-rounders for Gruden, I'm pretty sure the Steelers could get something similar for Mike T. Gotta have him under contract to get any compensation though.

    All of this vitriol and handwringing over Tomlin's extension is simply laughable. Perhaps some of you should go pay attention to some other made-up threat to your freedom and way of life that's got your hair on fire.
