Re: Failing marks: Grading the 2012 Steelers
Tomlin, for the 1st time in his career, is likely feeling a little hot around the collar. Even though he's not getting fired any time soon, he's probably realizing that this isn't a "guarantee for forever". Especially with Lovie Smith being fired even at 10-6.
I still think Tomlin is a fine coach - but i think he's smart enough to realize that big changes within are needed and i think you'll see him do some big things with the team in the offseason.
Remember back in pre-season when all the analysts were predicting our season record on all the big "ESPN" type shows??? What did they say?? 8-8 and behind Cincy and Baltimore!
And the boo-hooing on this board went craaaaaazy
"oh, they have no idea what they're talking about", "they're clueless", etc etc, etc, etc......
