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
