Fire Tomlin
 
Thread title says it all. He is competely failing us as a coach. We have maybe more talent than I can ever remember watching and we fail to make the playoffs. Tomlin has made shitty decision after shitty decision.

Maybe if he went Cowher would come back.

Those who had problems with Cowher....I don't think any of those problems were because we lacked fundamentals. Tomlin's teams lacks fundamentals at times....and he has a low football IQ.

Prime examples ...why in the world would you attempt a 54 yard FG in that situation? Why did he go for a FG on 4th and 1 from the 6? Why not take a knee with 40 seconds left when your QB is obviously struggling and your leading WR is out?

I only agree with your first point
The long FG

Going for a chip shot FG when it's the first half and your only down by 7 is an easy decision, the odds of a miss are very low, you can't just call it bad coaching because of a rare miss

Also it's fine to try and win the game at the end, that's a case of just being outplayed

Tomlin won't be fired, I'd be shocked if he was, but I think the op seriously overrates some of the talent on this team
Could they be better? Easily
Do you really think they trump every other team w pure talent? I dont

After trying to move the ball with 44 seconds left. I want Tomlin out of here now. This season is 100% on coaching. Anybody who cant see that has blinders on.

Talent or not his decisions all year long have left me wondering if he deserves to be a HC in the NFL.

I just want Tomlin to start disciplining the veterans on this team to produce better and consistent results. Stop doghousing the RB situation and figure out what to do better on offense next year.

To some degree I am glad the Steelers lost so we could see some big changes next year, or so I hope.

Sticky this. I'm done. This guy is an idiot. He can't prepare. He makes idiotic decisions. And he can't coach.

Ben's the one who really cost us this game. The offense, led by him, was terrible all day. Ben actually gave up more points (the pick 6 and the INT for the game winning FG) then he made (the one TD pass to A. Brown). This is the third game this season where he's had a chance to win the game, and not only does he not make the drive, he loses the game. The offense has WAY too much talent too be this shitty, and we've already chanced our OC, so who's to blame?

Tomlin's FG attempt was a complete dumb ass call but ultimately the defense bailed us out AGAIN. The offense should have at least been able to get in decent FG range in at least one of their last 2 tries, that combined with our terrible offense and Ben's INT"s is why we lost the game though, not Tomlin's call.
That said, I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but I agree. The problem is: who could we get that's better? I would definitely like to see Cowher come back, but that's unlikely, and the other good coach's that come to mind have been retired for a while also.

Another example of Tomlin's coaching genius.
In a big spot he usually makes the wrong decision.
His persona inflates his prowess as a coach.
