Wisenhunt has a defense playing hungry and with attitude, and he BUILT that team. the team I have seen thus far does not resemble the steelers way and I feel that all starts with what type of attitude the head coach instills in the team and Tomlin has this team going.backwards. obviously if we win Sunday a lot of these thoughts go away, but we didn't so I ask do you feel we would be better off with wisenhunt holding down the reigns? Personally I think we would but let's hope we get healthy in the bye and come out the gates refocused and ready to put players we have in a position to win
The "Tomlin inherited a SuperBowl team" is only partially true.
Cowher could only get that current roster to one SuperBowl, and Tomlin got them to two SuperBowls.
Cowher inherited Noll's completely loaded roster (Greg Lloyd, Rod Woodson)... and if we are being even, well, are you saying that Cowher getting to the play-offs in his first six seasons due to Noll?
Tomlin has the best winning percentage of any current coach, and in his first five years... ugh... I'm tired. There's a thread about this (around the time of Tomlin's extension).
