Default Tomlins Sideline Demeanor

did anyone see tomlin with his arms folded last night on washingtons final attempt for the win? i thought i was watching cowher! that lack of emotion will get us nowhere. seriously, he was sweating it after getting stuffed on the goal line when he had to decide to go for it or not on 4th and inches. and when brunell threw that long pass to get the redskins in scoring range, he was practically curled up in fetal position with his blankie, sucking his thumb as he let lebeau call the shots.

we're done!

discuss....

I wasn't concerned. He isn't Cowher. I don't have much else to say.

Fire Tomlin and replace him with Steely McBeam. Pirate Parrot replaces Arians and Captain Jolly Roger replaces LeBeau.

On that note, I thought Tomlin should have gone for the six at the end. Preseason game, what the hell? I figured after getting stuffed time after time, it might have been a bit more of a mental victory. Oh well.

Between the failed experiment of Starks as backup LT and the emotional paralysis you describe at the end of last night's game it is clear that the culture of failure that has been created during the Tomlin era can no longer be tolerated.

Time for me to find out if anyone has claimed the website address firemiketomlinnow.com

He's the complete opposite of what Cowher was. Different coach, different coaching style, no spitting and I doubt very seriously your going to see Tomlin stick any photos in a referee's pocket anytime soon.

I'll wait until a ref blows a bad call before I make that assumption. We have not seen his temper yet. I have a feeling the guy can blow up (when he has to) with the best of them. I'm anxious for that day just for curiousity sake.

On that note, how about Bob Ligashesky? Isn't that guy a ball of fire? He better watch he doesn't have a heart attack on the sideline this season. He was also like that up at Latrobe.

Just a reminder it is the preseason. This is a rookie head coach. We all knew when he was hired he wasnt going to be all full of piss and vinegar. I havent heard one bad thing about the guy in the press. The minute I do I will then worry.
