The team seems to like Tomlin and have played pretty well under him. Troy looks better than ever and both Woodley and Timmons look like keepers.

Thought it was a good hire at the time and I still like it.

No body was confident when Tomlin was picked as head coach. Of course overtime he has proven himself to this franchise so far and am damn glad to have him as the coach of the best franchise out there!

The man knows football, and he's smart. All those that laid the blame of last weeks embarrassment on him are wrong. Not saying he couldnt have done more. Like put his foot up Arians a$$ for not calling a freaking screen or 2, but even Arians doesnt deserve all the blame.

Seemed to me the o-line gave up after the 5th sack.

I think it will take 3 consecutive losing seasons before the Rooneys even consider firing him

Not happy with Tomlin?

Looks like Marvin Lewis and Romeo Crennel will soon be available.

Technically...the Steelers haven't had 3 consecutive seasons since 1969 - 1971. Those would be Chuck Noll's first 3 seasons.

Thank GOD they didn't fire Noll.

I need the Bengals to keep Lewis for one more week, because I'm considering taking the Cowboys next week in my suicide pool and would hate to see the Bengals actually have a new coach take over prior to that game that could possibly inspire them to play half way good football.

Yep, lets let the Boys thump a mud hole in them, me survive another week and then fire Lewis.

Cowher lost I don't know how many of his starters between 1997 thru 2000. Carnell Lake, Chad Brown, Rod Woodson, etc, The Steelers were losing so many guys I am suprised they didnt go 2-14 or 3-13 in those years. It wasnt until the new stadium was built where the Steelers finally were able to be competetive with they're free agents.

Tomlin will have to show his stuff though. Cowher never had a bad offensive line his entire 15 years in Pittsburgh. Once Cowher got a true QB, he won a Super Bowl. Give Bill Cowher Big Ben or Tom Brady or Manning and see how many rings he would have won. Its a combination of so many things and you need some luck. However, in Tomlin's situation, he will need to adjust the offense to combat pressure. Which means he will need to tell Bug Ben that he needs to know when the blitz will come and audible or adjust the play at the line to confuse the defense. Thats what the great QBs do. And what the great coaches do with help their players from 1 thru 53.
