Default Re: Having Serious Doubts About Tomlin

Oh yea - I'd have a hard time finding two coaches in the league right now that win more and more importantly - win more with the type of obstacles he has faced in his first 5 years.

Even if he did in fact "inherit" a team - it was still up to him to manage a locker room full of guys that aren't exactly "Yes sirs" or can manage to keep it under the radar during the season and off season.

What happens behind the scenes between Tomlin and ownership, Tomlin and coaches, and Tomlin and players is probably a lot more telling than the Tomlin with fans.

4 full seasons. 3 playoff appearances (and still 9-7 in the non-playoff season). 2 SB appearances. 1 SB win. Knowing when to not try and fix one hell of a defense while coaching with a mediocre at best offense. 1 Drama-inducing QB, one crappy O-line, some polarizing players on defense, lack of run game - and all he does is put up Ws. I'm not quite sure what we are lacking other than what we think we should see from an outsider's perspective.
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
