Tomlin is getting a bad rap. The problem is fans overrating the players on the offense. James Harrison said it best last year- Ben isn`t Manning or Brady he just gets paid like them. This offense will never be a 30 ppg offense with Ben- especially when his WRs have given him very little help.
The defense held the Bengals to 6 points. A monkey throwing darts at the offensive playbook to decide calls should have resulted in a win.
Statistically, the offense has looked almost identical from this year to last year and so did the defense.
Could have been a 12-4 team that ended 8-8 at best. That`s life.
Steelers will be back hungry next year.
Let`s hope the training staff isn`t back.
