What were you saying during Cowher's 1st 13 years before the SB win but after all the heartbreaking AFCCG losses (at home, no less) and the heartbreaking SB loss to the Cowboys? How about his last year where he and the team pretty much mailed it in and took the season off?

Oh I'll remember them all right. You can bet the house on that.

I just don't understand this Tomlin hatred all of a sudden. Oh wait, yes I do - Steelers fans don't have any patience. I nearly forgot!

Tomlin won't last 10 years? Does this guy realize that Steelers ownership has not fired a head coach since the 1968 football season?

As long as Tomlin doesn't let this team become the Bengals talent and criminal wise, he'll stay the HC of the Pittsburgh Steelers until he too resigns.

I like Tomlin so far, he's done nothing to make me want him fired.

Some people seem to think the Steelers are entitled to the Super Bowl every year. I expect the Super Bowl every year, but I also am level headed enough to know we won't win it every single season.

As long as the Steelers are contending for Super Bowls, I'll be content. I just hope we get a few more than one out of Tomlin.

As much as I dislike Gruden as a coach, he has had the team in the playoffs 2/4 years since winning the Super Bowl. Not great numbers but he's still getting the job done down here. But you're also comparing too different styles of coaching. Gruden is more of a Cowher type - emotional. Tomlin is not and that's not necessarily a bad thing. As for Tomlin lasting 10 years in Pittsburgh, I think you're right, he won't last 10 years, he'll last about 15 or so - or as long as he wants to coach here.

BTW, look up, the sky isn't falling!!!

The only two ways Tomlin doesn't last 10 years is if there is a finacial inpass with his contract, or if the majority of the franchise is sold to an outside interst. In that senerio, all bets are off.

I'm not buying it! He just stands on the sidelines and specatates. I'm telling you guys, he's not that good of a head coach. 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.:

No, I am sorry my friend, you are incorrect. Mike Tomlin is a good coach.
