We had the hardest schedule in the NFL and went 15-4. Our team stayed together the whole year and fought hard through controversy. You never see our guys calling attention to themselves and I credit Tomlin for that. Hats off to all the coaches and players for battling this season and bringing a 6th Super Bowl to Pittsburgh. I also would like to praise the Rooneys for the job they do with this franchise. I would like to give a shout out to all the great Steelers fans too. We have the greatest fans in all of sports and it showed last night. I may not be from Pittsburgh but I love the Steelers just like anybody else. I look forward to getting a 7th Lombardi Trophy next season!

I agree, hopefully people outside our fan base will credit tomlin. Most of them feel like he is just riding cowhers team. I believe that he has more of a connections witih his players then cowher did.

But I am so proud to be a Steelers fan, brought my Terrible Towel into work today, letting all the haters know who the Superbowl champs are!!!

HATERS KEEP HATE'N BECAUSE WELL KEEP WINNING :tt03::tt03:

I think there were a few defining moments this year in the regular season that really set the pace...

Our wins over the Ravens.

Tomlin coming down, what I consider hard, on Holmes. Tomlin showed that the Steelers will not turn into the Cowboys as long as he is head coach, and they haven't.

The loss to the Titans. I still see that as one of the best losses a team can have.

Probably the most heart-felt for me, but seeing Big Ben's thumbs up after the concussion. Just really struck me man, so seeing him at the Chargers game just coming out for blood, it set the stage.

Next years schedule looks like a walk in the park compared to what they just been through... but sometimes thats harder to win and prepare for as this year, bar a couple of games... every game was a huge game!

Tomlin will get his credit. Cowher left him with a 500 team after the last SB and Tomlin imposed his own philosophy on the team. He is really respected by the player. When I saw John Lynch interview Mike, I was amazed at the respect; and Lynch is older than Tomlin. Same for Derrick Brooks.

Lets face it, Cowher was a fine coach but he was not so fine in championship games and Tomlin getst he ring in his second year. Tomlin is his own man. Cowher was a too much like Mary Shottenheimer.

People say Tomlin took over a team two years removed from a Super Bowl.

Correction. Tomlin took over an 8-8 team coming off embarrassing losses to the Ravens with a struggling Quarterback that led the league in interceptions. He reversed that trend in a hurry.

In just two seasons, Mike Tomlin won a home AFC Championship game (Achillies' Heel for Cowher) and won a Super Bowl (Took Cowher fourteen years to do that). He has accumilated a lot of talent in the last two drafts and the first two picks from his first draft have already made big contributions to a league-leading defense. He is not afraid to call out players and preaches accountability, and will discipline players if necessary should they mess up. Hampton and Holmes can attest to that.

Tomlin has put his stamp on this team. Now we have the next question: How does Mike Tomlin handle success? Hopefully the answer is: Get more success.
