No doubt, especially Jim. The Niners didn't even have an identity when he took over last year, and he was a few player errors away from going to the SB. They likely will this year. Tomlin's first 2 years were pretty damn impressive too. We made the playoffs the first year (and somehow lost to the Jaguars) and won the SB in his 2nd. As you mentioned though Vet, Tomlin signed on with a team that won the SB just a year before.There's no doubt in my mind that if we were disciplined and played with the heart that Jim has seemingly instilled in the Niners, that we would be playing Sunday.

The test for Jim will be time. They've pieced together a damn good team and are definitely on the right track. Yet we seemed to be on the right track too in Tomlin's first two years. Now we've either missed the playoffs or been beat in the WC round 3 out of the last 4 years. Let's hope they both lose, although I don't see the Niners losing another game this year.

John Harbaugh took over a team in 2007 that went 13-3 as the AFC's second seeded team in 2006. Baltimore, like Pittsburgh, wasn't always nutritioned on the offensive side of the ball like they were defensively, and the Ravens defense he inherited were at the PEAK of their dominance, paving the way to their success to this day.

Did Tomlin REALLY inherit a good team? The Steelers had a QB coming off of a near death experience having the worst season of his career. Guys like Alan Faneca and Joey Porter were VERY tough decisions for a new head coach taking over an organization that only saw 2 come before him. I just think it's silly. Tomlin took over a franchise in '06 that had tons of question marks and some CORE veteran leadership ready for departure. I don't wanna hear it. Tomlin has done a great job and isn't recognized for it because of some recent struggles.

Come on guys, just because we're Steeler fans doesn't mean that we need to wear black and gold blinders. Tomlin's an OK coach, but he's just not operating at that level. He's just not.

You know, you may be right, but sometimes as Steelers fans, some may not know how fucking GOOD we actually have it and how a little bump in the road will have some fans talking incredible nonsense. Steelers fans are one of the most spoiled bunch's on the planet and sometimes, when things don't go perfectly, our intelligence is overshadowed by being spoiled rotten. Sometimes it makes me sick.

This is only Jim Harbaugh's second year and they have both been pretty damn good. I've watched them quite a bit since he's been there. As for the Ravens, I'm not entirely impressed with John Harbaugh or the Ravens. John has yet to make it all the way although he's had a lot of opportunities and the Ravens had a better team upon his arrival.

I'll admit that I don't watch much of the 49ers, but their draft picks since 05 have been spot on, as they should be drafting around 10th or higher for several years. Davis, Willis, Gore, and Crabtree. Admittedly, Alex Smith was a miss. They are and have been loaded with talent. I'll give you Harbaugh has done more with them than Singletary, but like I've said before it's still way to early to say he's a top tier coach.

As for the Ravens, well there might not be too much to be jealous of after this weekend. One thing about them you can't say about us, Ray Lewis gets them fired up for each game.

Edit: That wasn't a diss on Singeltary, I like him and loved the fire he brought.

I found a nice black and gold ostrich for my signature. Because the standard is the standard, and if you close your eyes and can't see the standard, well that must count as the standard, because we're Steeler fans, right?
