Without Brady - that team falls apart like the Colts did last season. However - is someone like him or Coughlin "Steelers" material - was Whiz or Grimm over Tomlin? Apparently not - and Whiz can't hold Tomlin's jock in terms of HC'ing
Exactly.

Even "if" Tomlin is not better than Cowher (I think he's about even, with potential to be better)... with whom would the nay-sayers replace him?

It's akin to the people who were complaining about BB (remember that?) ... and then these nay-sayers quickly realized that the grass is greener over the septic tank.

I've asked several times, the same question, to no avail.

NAY: I hate Tomlin. Fire him!!!
TEE: With whom would you replace him?
NAY: He sucks!!!
TEE: What coach available would you take over Tomlin?
NAY: He looks lost; like a deer in headlights.
TEE: Okay, you can have any coach... which one would you take?
NAY: Tomlin sucks!!!
TEE: :: scratches head::
NAY: I'm going to create another thread about it!!!

Actually, yes.

He had the top rated defense in MINN... and I liked him quite a bit. Now, was he the "top" coaching prosepct... probably not. But, he was indeed on my list.

Who was on yours?
Wait... let me guess what your answer will be: Fire Tomlin!!!

The idea of firing Tomlin is a joke.
Sure, it's easy to fire a guy..
But go ahead and find a replacement that's clearly an upgrade.

My issues with Tomlin are not about this year. I actually expected this to be a good year, and the things I blame him for this year would have been overcomable if not for the uncontrolables. I don't blame Tomlin any more for this year than for other down years of his tenure, or than I credit him for the years that the defense dragged the team to success.

Yea, and I don't really want to hear about college coaches, who - 9/10 don't translate well into the professionals. These are grown men with overgrown egos - not mommy and daddy's kid on a scholarship anymore that coach can force to run till they puke. The reins are off these guys 100% - different monster to deal with. There was an article recently in the Bmore Sun about how the Ravens almost had a mutiny on their hands against Harbaugh after their Texans debacle - because he was going hard-ass meat grinder on them because of how "embarrassing" they were. These really aren't "the coaches players" for lack of a better phrase.

There is no way Tomlin should be fired. We are the Pittsburgh Steelers. We don't fire head coaches willy nilly. We implement a system and that system transitions to a winning tradition over time with every coach we've had thus far. 1 team wins the super bowl every year and there are 32 teams. Every other team that does not win the super bowl is a loser. Tomlin is a successful coach and things will turn around. I expect to be 10-6 or 9-7 and fighting for the 6th playoff spot. If we get in the playoffs and the team is healthy we can certainly go on a run and compete for a super bowl.

Tomlin has given this team a chance to win every game of the year. That is all any coaches can do. Its up to the players ultimately to win the game which they haven't done this year. You can give many opinions on why it is Tomlin's fault but all he can do is prepare the team and give them a chance to be in and win every ball game which he has.
