Holy Mother of God - I can't bring myself to even address this nonsense.

He just doesn't seem to know what to do, and then, as in these situations, just does the wrong thing when he does do something. Marvel Smith wasn't hurt, quit making excuses for bad coaching. Last weeks debacle was about 80 percent coaching error as well. At least Arians stood up admitted such, but I don't think he should of taken all the blame either. I've yet to hear Tomlin admit any mistakes on his part. I'm sorry guys, he might be a good guy and all, but I don't see him successful as the Steelers, (or any other teams) head coach. I think he's probably a great players coach, but not much else.:

I disagree on two points. First, Tomlin doesn't call the plays, so he's not standing with a play card getting involved in the tactics of the game.

Second, Tomlin NEVER shucks the blame. EVER. It is not parat of his makeup, as I have seen, to do anything other than accept total responsibility. I'd go so far as to say he thrives on taking responsibility.

As far as him being any good, I won't dispute your opinion; it's your opinion. My take is that 4 games into his second season is far too early to pass judgment. Talk to me after seven seasons. But I'll say that the guy is no Romeo Crennell.

A division championship in his first season.

3-1, division leaders four games into his second season.

Who would you rather having coaching the team, Romeo Crenell? Marvin Lewis? Scott Linenhan?

I know, we're all used to Cowher being fired up, spittle flying as he screamed, stuffing the photo of a play into a refs pocket. But that's not Tomlin.

I think there is only one guy on this thread who is annoyed with Tomlin....I like the guy and think he is a great coach, I also think he should be with us for a long time to come.

My only concern is the way in which he calls the time out just before the snap which has resulted in us loosing 4 points last night, also earlier in the year we had got a 1st down and had to replay that one as well.

Moore would have taken the short pass for a TD, and the Ravens defense stopped playing right after the whistle was blown so there was no attempt to even stop Moore. It didn't take points away because the defense quit right after the whistle.

Simmons is the one on IR for clarification...

Tomlin is a young good coach who is learning. The timeout deals he has pulled he has to change because it is killing me also. Tomlin will be around 10 plus years and he will get us another SB. Be patient young jedi's.

I'm stickin to my guns on this one, and you all can hate me if you want to, but I've got an uncanny knack for seeing things as they are. I've been a Steeler fan since birth by the way (age 42 now) Heck I've even got the tattoo. I bleed, eat drink and sleep black and gold and NOTHING comes between me and my beloved Steelers! Not even Mike Tomlin. You guys take note of these two posts, and talk to me in another couple of years, being that we're committed to this guy for at least that long. I'm no professional sports team owner, but I am a thinker! I'm just telling ya'll, MARK MY WORDS! He won't last ten years in Pittsburgh. (and no, it's not because he's black, for any of yuns thinking thats why I'm saying this) I don't care what his record is. He's coaching a championship caliber team right now, in case you forgot. Look at Chucky down there in Tampa. I said the same thing about him, but oh, no! He came in and led the Bucs to a super bowl, so now all of a sudden he's all that. He led Tony Dungys team to a super bowl! Since then he ain't done squat. Same thing goes for Tomlin. Just watch and see.
