Re: Madden: Ben's at fault, but he's not the only one
Oh wow...we're really going to take what Mark Madden has to say seriously?
His job is to stir the pot...seems like it worked well here.
One thing he is spot on with though, is that starting QB's are hated and blamed for everything in Pittsburgh. This thread is proof.
This isn't the first time the Steelers (with capable talent) have missed the playoffs, and it won't be the last.
The blame lies on the entire team, and coaching staff. I won't pick on Tomlin specifically. There are other coaches involved, and Cowher shit the bed more than Tomlin has so far...so calling to fire him is just a knee jerk reaction.
The team and coaches know what needs changed, and they'll do that. They'll be contenders next year, just like they were in '10 after missing the playoffs.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.
