Default Re: Do you think the Arians "retirement" was a shot across Tomlins Bow....

I think Tomlin is one of those guys who has a hard time breaking up friendships or loyalties even if they may have become detrimental. I've seen that happen in job situations where a boss really needs to let a guy go but has trouble doing it because even though it's obvious that the guy really isn't cut out for the job, everyone likes him and couldn't imagine not having him around.

Maybe he realized that Arians may have taken the "passing thing" too far and realized that we needed to move in a different direction but saw that he was tight with Ben and maybe Tomlin and others liked him as well and he had problems when it came to pulling the trigger, so the Rooney's did it for him.

Maybe Tomlin is a little too "human" in that regard.
