Wait maybe he will "unleash hell" these next 2 games.

What a joke.
LOl, living off of cowher's players, thats nice. This is not the same team that Cowher ran; not the same identity, not the same philosophy, nothing.
I do not really understand why the over reaction to one loss against a pretty damn good opponent.

The team is always prepared, they just do not execute. When players do not execute, thats on the players, not on the coaches (for the most part)

There is always a game plan coming in. Dont understand why people continue to act like the coaches or even the players do nothing for six days.

Playcalling can be better, i will agree with you on that; but arians is the one who calls the plays.

The game clock situation was all on Ben, IMO. When he gets the go for the no huddle offense, he has to control the clock and make the decisions on whether or not to spike the ball, call another play, or call timeout. And if you recall, Tomlin smartly called a timeout after SF was stopped for a minimal run gain on third down to give the opportunity for the offense to take the field, which many coaches fail to do so when their defense is on the field in the last two minutes of a half (ask John Harbaugh and the Ravens if they could have taken timeouts at the end of the first half of sunday night's game in order to get possession in).

The steelers were moving down the field pretty good and getting out of bad field position for the most part, they just shot themselves in the foot constantly and turnovers killed good drives in the first quarter. Thats not bad coaching, that bad execution.

We almost lost to the colts in 95 (scored go ahead TD with like 2 minutes left)


Until Tomlin starts laying those type of eggs I'm not going to question his coaching.
Rewatch the 2009 Steelers season.

Rewatch the 2006 season, and pretty much every season besides 2005 and 1995 under Cowher. Tomlin may have inherited a good team, but that team wen't 8-8 in '06 and right back in the playoffs under Tomlin in '07. In '09 Tomlin's suffered a 9-7 season.

Tomlin should have found the strength (after Ben's 2nd INT) to tell Ben, "You're out! You are not in any condition to lead this team to a win." He should have put in Batch or Dixon and went with it. Sure, it would not have been approved of by the fans or media, but who cares?! Save your main starting QB and realize that with this injury he is only a shadow of himself.

2006 season Cowher thought it would be cool to start a quarterback who was clinically dead in the first 8 games. Just awful. But the 2009 goes down as the worst display of football imaginable imo. Losing to the Chiefs, Raiders, and Browns was just embarrassing. Especially after promising to "unleash hell." We had a cakewalk schedule.

Tomlin is a decent coach. Not awful but I don't think he's great despite having winning seasons and a SB under his belt. Like someone said before, he has a lot of talent to work with and a HOF defensive coordinator that controls everything on that side of the ball (and he continues to let Arians control the offense). The only thing I think he's in charge of is personnel decision, clock management and challenges. He's shaky at best with the latter two.

I wouldn't blame that on Tomlin. Are guys came into those game's big-headed. We we're coming off a Super Bowl win and we lost to teams the media labeled as "Lesser". The Packers losing to the Chiefs is a recent example.

They were lesser. The Browns, Chiefs and Raiders were awful that year. Spitting out records and saying he's a great head coach based off that is a little off base. When was the last time the Steelers won a game and you said "that was a great gameplan?" Maybe a couple of times this year (Tennessee and the 2nd Bengals game).

You forgot:
*Consistently challenges the wrong calls.

Letting Ben on the field was the most stupid decision.
