Default Complete BS.....

I've been a Steelers fan since I was 4 years old....I'm sick and tired of the off season moves. They never want to spend money. They let Cowher retire and now we are hiring Tomlin? Are you serious? I would have been happy with Rivera, Grimm or Whiz. Tomlin was my absolute last choice, so I knew that meant he'd get it.

I could be ignorant, but look at what Rivera has done with that defense. We could have had the new Steel Curtain. I hope Tomlin doesn't last long.

how do you let someone retire? did you see cowher coach this year? he retired after the superbowl. Cowher isnt here because he doesnt want to be here, I think it had nothing to do with money on why he isnt here right now.

Mike Tomlin took the 21st defense and brought them to eigth with not a whole lot of talent. Rivera has had guys like tommie harris, brian urlacher and aguenle just to name a few. And they also have a very sharp minded defensive head coach in Lovie Smith.

THen why did Cowher tell the Rooneys he'd stay for 6 mil? And look at what Cowher was getting paid to the rest of the coaches in the league.

thats where you are wrong. the rooneys made cowher the lame duck coach after low balling him after his superbowl run. "it had nothing to do with money"? we will find out how true that is with his contract to coach next year.

he didnt retire. he resigned. big difference.

Don't give up Lambert, it really isn't official yet. Plus I still have faith in either choice by the Rooneys. None of us knew what we were getting in Cowher when he first hired.

How about let's let the man officially get the job and see what he does with it before we string him up???
