His touchdown against the Titans was sick. He burned that entire defense.

I do think though, what is unique about this situation - is that they have about a 5 or 6 season window to win another championship or two. Cowher was trying to get by without the luxury of a franchise QB. This team has been loaded with talent - but some of the talent is falling by the wayside (and some of it happening a lot earlier than expected - Mendenhall will go down as a huge bust and Wallace will be nothing more than a flash in the pan)

You really think the Rooney's would give Tomlin 3 failing seasons in a row with this roster?...with a HOF QB? God I hope not. I hope we don't have to find that out.

HUGE difference between Cowher and now...you pointed out the most obvious fact. Also worth mentioning... In Cowher's first 6 years..he won the division 5 X, 3 AFCC appearances, and a SB. What makes it impressive is the situation he took on. VERY different then what Tomlin took over... with the QB situation...I think Cowher earned the right to have a few bad seasons... everyone knew the talent he had wasn't good. Tomlin's situation is completely different. No way has he earned the right to deliver 3 bad seasons in a row... 2011 was a fail... 2012 is not looking good...if we don't win a playoff game this year..and next year..he's gotta be gone.

Frankly I don't see it happening... this is a QB league..and with Ben on the roster and a good defense...it would take some seriously bad coaching to not win with that. Even if this season is a failure..I don't think it happens 3 years in a row.

Somehow, Tomlin is having to deal with a LOT more injuries - I think that is the equalizer. I think you might agree with me that Steeler Nation would be expecting wins if Ben is in there, regardless of who else is out. Green Bay proved you can win with a decimated roster.

This season is yet another epic fail by coach Tomlin. How does a team with Superbowl aspirations come up this short? Just like 2009... we can't beat the worst of teams due to lack of focus or preparation by the coaching staff and the players. I seriously think Tomlin will be coaching to keep his job next year. I can't believe the Rooney's will tolerate anything less after this debacle of a season.

Jeebus, can't we keep things in perspective? One bad season, and few rough games, and we are back on the "Tomlin fighting for his job" train?

2007: 10-6, DIV title, playoffs

2008: 12-4, SB Ring #6, DIV title, epic defense

2009: 9-7, no playoffs (uh-oh, Cowher NEVER had that happen to him after winning a SB)

2010: 12-4, SB loss, DIV title

2011: 12-4, playoffs

2012: 6-5 and still counting...

Tomlin's not going anywhere.....

Tomlin, plays a bright man in the movies. During the games are his reality. He looks clueless EVEN when the team is winning. Ala, the time management etc.

the problem is we don't have a starting running back, they're all equally bad.

I do like redman though, but he's primarily a short yardage back, he's not starter caliber

Keep Redman and Dwyer I say. Go Corner or Safety in 1st and 2nd, RB in third IMO
