    Ill give him a chance before burying him. He’s only 24. The change in scenery and coaches can work wonders.

    well that settles it.
    Tomlin’s coming back so what can you do?

    Unfortunately, this is the most likely outcome.

    Hopefully he can beat the odds.

    I'm so glad you believe that. Because you are so often wrong that if you supported Haskins it would be the kiss of death.

    It doesn't take any scouting talent to be a nay sayer about a QB and predicting failure. Mathematically speaking that's the way to go. But, if Haskins doesn't succeed it's not because he doesn't have elite NFL talent. It's because he doesn't do the work to understand the NFL game and the PB. I don't know where his head is at. It's my only concern. I know how good this guy is. He throws one of the prettiest balls into tight pockets. He is a 3-4 deep read QB. His head is on a swivel with elite arm talent. His issue and only issue has been maturity and sloth. We shall see how much he wants this.

    I agree that failure at QB is the expected outcome for most guys. Even though drafted highly in the 1st.

    And I bet that the odds of success are even lower than normal for highly drafted guys that get cut (not even traded) in the middle of their cheap rookie contracts.

    I really hope that he works out.

    Just like I was hoping that Paxton Lynch worked out.

    It makes sense to take flyers on these high pedigree cast offs. But you have to understand that you're buying penny stocks.

    On the "bright side" betting on Haskins is probably more like betting 00 on roulette (unlikely but it happens) than betting a flipped coin lands on it's edge (statistically not exactly impossible).

    you're right. the same can be said for those who each season predict the failure of a HC and then pat themselves on the back for being correct:

    "It doesn't take any talent to be a nay sayer about a HC and predicting failure. Mathematically speaking that's the way to go."

    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 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 90’s held on to Don Shula for too long for what he did in the playoffs in the 70’s...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for too long for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches.

    why don't you tell us again about how Cowher was the better coach because he drafted earlier than Tomlin
