Vic Fangio is the niners' defensive coordinator.

what have you seen tomlin do as a head coach that would lead you to believe that he would have more wins?

I guess that explains why Norv Turner took over a squad that went 14-2 and put 10 players in the Pro Bowl in 2006 and has done exactly jack shit with it since.

If being a head coach were that easy, the job wouldn't pay 7 figures a year.

Yeah, minus the 2 AFC championships and the Super Bowl ring. And the fact that Tomlin took over a squad that finished 8-8 the year before he arrived, which is kind of a far cry from 14-2...

How is that comparable to a 4-year playoff drought completely?

Get a clue.

I've seen Tomlin lead the Steelers to one super bowl victory, two AFC championships, three division titles, four playoff berths, and three 12-4 seasons in his six seasons as head coach. What have you seen Turner and Crennel do that leads you to believe that they could replicate or surpass the success Tomlin has had?

Let's get Chuck back and bring back TB and Franco Harris. While we're at it, let's go get Swann and Stallworth and fucking dig up Myron Cope and throw his bones on the sidelines to help this team win. This way, we can return to "Steelers football", right guys?

Or, let's keep Tomlin and grab Norv Turner to be OC. That way, Ben can be the field general he is and call audibles without Haley having a bitch fit on the sidelines. He'd also use Manny and AB the way they're supposed to be used - vertically.
