Thats quite a sentence.

Do a search on 'Tomlin' (using the search feature at the top middle of the page) and you will see this topic has been done.....and done.....and done again.

I like what I've seen on the TV and have read in various tribunals, but until I actually see him in action, it is illogical (Spock ears up - LOL!) for me to give an opinion on his coaching abilities which is what is most important. So far, he's been talkin' the talk - I want to see him walk the walk.

I think I'll wait to form an opinion after some games have been played.

I'll even go so far as to say I'd give him an entire season before I pass judgment on him.

So far, I think he is a good person and coach. However, I think I'll wait 'till training camp and opening day to make my final decision.

What will you be able to know by opening day?? Are you going to base your opinion of him as a coach on preseason games?

No, I mean the whole opening day thing as just a, let's call it opening opinion on him. Mostly based on how he handles himself and the team with the stress of his first game as a HC.

I totally agree. Looking at the schedule, it will be weeks into the season before we get a real tough test. Let's see how we do against Shanahan and the Broncos week 7 in Denver or against Belichick and the Pats at Foxboro week 14 before we start analyzing this guys too much.

I see a season that starts pretty soft, gets tougher in the middle, and pretty darn hard at the end. How Coach Tomlin handles the last five games will be a much tougher test than the first five.

I think we need to be patient and give him some time and I agree we won't be in a position to assess his success as a coach until after the end of the season.

I like what I've seen of him so far. His ultimate test will determine my opinion.
