If Not Tomlin then who?
 
I am amazed at the "fire Tomlin" posts. That is not the Steeler way.

So, what I ask to those haters is who is your replacement and why do you think that coach will out perform Tomlin who has won a Super Bowl and been to another in 6 seasons?

can't wait to hear who you come up with.

Bruce Arians for head coach. Just look what he did for the Colts. Imagine what he could do for our offense!

Yes! And everyone around here already loves Arians!

If not him, we could go for Ryan, Turner or Garrett...

unlikely he would ever consider coming back. unlikely the colts would let him go. and, if he is offered a head coaching job it will be from a team I am sure will pay him more.

not happening.

I, for one, am a STRONG supporter of Tomlin.

I think he has the combination of intelligence, energy and risk taking that I like in a head coach. He is young as well and will gather experience that will serve him in future years.

I am sure he is more disappointed than any of us can imagine. For now, he is the one I want for head coach.

If you want your football team to change head coaches with a recent bad season - you are rooting for the wrong team as a Steeler fan and so be ready for years and years of disappointment. I would suggest you go root for the Redskins or Cowboys.

I absolutely agree. Tomlin didn't come in here with any head coaching experience, neither did Cowher. I think he'll learn with every mistake. This is the kind of season that he needed in order to make himself better. Next season will be a big test for him.

Like a lot of players Tomlin had a bad year - hopefully he will build on it

He bounced back from the collapse in 2009 (starting with handling the Ben suspension to start the 2010 season) and hopefully will do so again

But without a lot of veteran leadership and upcoming departures he will be facing the most significant challenges of his career

Here's the list of candidates I'd talk to:

Bill Cowher
Ken Whizenhunt
Dick Lebeau
Vic Fangio
Tom Clements
Keith Butler


I think every single one of these guys is more qualified to be a HC then Mike Tomlin... obviously the Rooney's don't look for experience..they look for personality. So not sure who else out there has that edge the Rooney's like..but I have to think there are plenty of candidates out there. That said, I wouldn't fire Tomlin this off season if I were the GM. I'd have a serious sit down with MIke... I'd make sure he realizes he needs to step it up...and I'd make sure he knows next year is do or die.

sometimes players have a bad performance, and bounce back on the next one.

sometimes teams have a bad game, and bounce back the next one.

sometimes coaches AND players have a bad year, and the steelers always bounce back!

next year after tomlin takes this team on a deep playoff run, i doubt well be having these converstaions!
