Carnell Lake, Troy Polamalu... hmmm... finding another one of those will indeed be very difficult.
Cortez Allen is the only Tomlin guy. Everyone else was found by Cowher or Noll (in Lloyd's case).
Tomlin inherited a Super Bowl roster and I'm afraid in a year or two, it's going to be an 8-8 roster with a franchise QB in his twilight.
