Kubiak? Really? Would you please remind me of how many playoff wins he has?

People think that regular season success translates into post season success.

Houston and San Francisco are going out in the second round, assuming they get their bye. Mediocre quarterbacks with terrible secondaries don't win playoff games, sorry.

yeah - its ridiculous the ragging on Tomlin stuff.
It's getting to the point that i wont' even open up threads that mentions "fire" and "Tomlin" in the same sentence. It's completely delusional and ridiculous.

The Rooney's don't throw away their coaches - if they did, Cowher would have been gone long before his first and only Super Bowl win. Like any team, the Steelers have seasons of feasts and famines - the difference is that the Steelers are among the most consistently successful franchises in the league and have won 6 Super Bowls. A big reason for that success can be traced back to the emphasis on continuity - even in the face of adversity. Like it or not, Coach Tomlin will be around for as long as he chooses.

Well, we can start with the most recent poll on NFL.COM that lists Tomlin as the coach players want to play for most out of the 32 head coaches in the NFL...

Players tend to want to work for a fair, successful, classy person who can win games. I'd say that is a good start. They didn't vote for Belicheck....

He is a VERY good players coach, but he needs to be a friend AND a teacher, Kick some asses more when needed, Tommy.

I'm one of the ones who doesn't think he's a very good head coach. Anyone who's honest has to admit that the defense has pretty much dragged this team to both Superbowls, and the less Tomlin has to do with the defense the better they are, and that's his strongest area. What's left? keeping Arians around after he proved himself the loser that anyone who knew anything about him already knew he was? Not addressing our oh so special teams issues for the sixth straight year? His gameday decisions that are on par with Arians's offensive decisions most of the time, (he's gotten good on deciding when to go for 4th and short)? His cliche of the month club membership? "Unleashing Hell"? I hope he proves me wrong, but he really hasn't.

[I posted this in one of the other twenty or so "Fire Tomlin" threads, but I never seem to get any answers. I'll try again, since you asked.]


I have a question for all of those who despise Tomlin.

Let's assume that Cowher is the better coach (I don't think he is better than Tomlin, but that is not the point of this post). Let's assume that Cowher is better... and go from there.

Cowher is better.
He is retired.
The Steelers need to hire someone... so, if it is not Tomlin, then with whom would you replace him?

Before you answer Nick Saban (or some other college coach), name the last college coach who was successful in the NFL. (My guess is that your answer will be Jimmy Johnson... who is an anomaly.) Sure, Jim Harbaugh has turned his team around, but he has ZERO championships. And, he is winning with "Singletary's guys"... right? So... who...??

If you want a coordinator... again I ask: Who???

The fact is, that even if Cowher was better, he is retired, and SOMEONE has to coach the Steelers.

Heck, you can have any coach in the NFL... who would you take over Tomlin: Belichick? Coughlin? But, even both of those are maybes, because just like Tomlin, neither of them won without an elite QB (number of SuperBowls for those coaches prior to Brady & Eli: ZERO).

Cowher was better. He is retired. And, so are Mel Blount & Rod Woodson.

Think about that analogy. Ike Taylor is no where near as good as Blount or Woodson... but, Ike has been pretty darn good. Who else would you have rather have had for the past nine seasons? Tillman... Asomugha... someone else?

In other words, maybe there are a few better coaches in the league, but then again, maybe there aren't.

More importantly, the past is the past... and has nothing to do with the present. Cowher was a better coach... so was Lombardi... and, so was Paul Brown. So, what exactly does that have to do with any current coach?
