Another thing with Cowher is, while he was a player's coach at times, he knew when to be the bad guy and haul ass. The players feared screwing up because they knew he'd glare at them, stick that big chin out, and get a bunch of spit in their faces.

Tomlin has drafted talented players, but they lack humility. They act like they've won something when they've never even come close. They don't seem to fear screwing up, and they don't feel stupid dancing after every routine catch for a first down. Complete lack of focus.

It is a bad season, Tomlin should be accountable but yanking him out is probably not going to fix anything. I like Tomlin, he's not as bad as many people are making him out to be. His team constantly gave up the ball this year and made so many mistakes. If you chalk it up to discipline, yes point a finger. But if the offense takes care of the all this year we have 10 wins easy, and no one is talking about Tomlin.

Tomlin has not improved one single area of the team since he got here. The Rooneys had to step in and force an OC upgrade, and it looks like it will take that with the special teams as well. How long will they put up with his insubordination with the running game. The team has one decent running back and as soon as he started to get healthy Tomlin benched him, and then suspended him.

People need to stop getting so nostalgic over Cowher.

I think one of Tomlin's strengths is player development. Look at some of the players he developed that were mid round picks or later. Players like Keenan Lewis, Curtis Brown, Woodley, Brown, Wallace, sanders and you will see upside for Dwyer, Rainey, DEcastro, Adams and Spence.

His weekness is getting his team focused, at least this year. Too many dumb penalties and turnovers. especially at crucial times which I do blame on coaching.

Look at 2 killer plays in Super Bowl 45. The Mendy fumble and the kick off personal foul by Kenyan Fox after a good return for a final drive.

that is coaching and that he needs to work on.

I am not sure what you are watching. i will give you one example. He brought in Carnell Lake and our young dbs played great. Great without a pass rush all year.

Our O- LIne played well this year even with injuries.

as for Mendy, he fumbled twice in a crucial game with a third string qb that cant happen and he was benched. his suspension was for insubordination for not attending a game. mendy cost us a bunch of games to include super bowl 45 with fumbles.

as for the other runners, he took 2 no names and made them productive running backs. redman carried us vs giants and dwyer had a big 3 game streak.

I'm sorry. I'm miss the big chin and the spitting. He was a great character on the sideline. He was always a visual barometer for how the team was doing.

Tomlin often looks stunned like a deer in the headlights.

Tomlin is getting a bad rap. The problem is fans overrating the players on the offense. James Harrison said it best last year- Ben isn`t Manning or Brady he just gets paid like them. This offense will never be a 30 ppg offense with Ben- especially when his WRs have given him very little help.

The defense held the Bengals to 6 points. A monkey throwing darts at the offensive playbook to decide calls should have resulted in a win.

Statistically, the offense has looked almost identical from this year to last year and so did the defense.

Could have been a 12-4 team that ended 8-8 at best. That`s life.

Steelers will be back hungry next year.

Let`s hope the training staff isn`t back.

Cowher had his shortcomings to be sure. Too often lost the big games in the 90's. But still, those teams didn't lack humility or act like clown shoes.
