I voted yes. Based on the Rooneys' "recent" (if you consider 2 hires in the last 38 years recent) track record with HCs and Tomlin's press conference, which is the first time I have ever seen or heard the man, personally, I think he is a good fit. Time will tell.

I just hope some of the naysayers and impatient Steelers fans will give him a fair shot and not expect SB wins in each of his first 4 years.

I agree, HTG. I don't expect a SB berth or win from him the first year, or even the first 2 years he's here. If we're not at least in the playoffs by the end of his 3rd year with the talent he is being given to work with, then there is probably a problem.

Give him a chance. Cowher was a nobody too. Grimm was actually my choice, but I think the Rooneys have a better insight into the situation than I do.

i support him regardless, but the rooneys have every right to expect exactly what s. payton, if not e. mangini were able to deliver. they chose to go in this direction over cowher and i sur hope its cause they thought they were making an upgrade. and i would say the same about an insider like whiz or grimm.

I don't know about that, Tony - I like to think that Cowher did need a break from the grind. Coaches like Cowher who wear their emotions on their sleeves tend to not last very long as HCs - ten years is usually the max (see Madden, Vermeil, Ditka). We had Cowher for fifteen. On the other hand, "even-tempered" coaches like Landry and Belichick can stick around 30 years or longer.
