Default Am I The Only One?

I was just wondering if anyone had any feelings about our Head Coach and his assistants thus far in the Tomlin era?
The guy has a no.2 draft pick that alot liked during the preseason that is not even dressing for games... whats up with that? Does that mean we will have him and Davis (LB) not dressing? 2 out of our draft choices from this year are not even dressing... The steelers didnt make any adjusments to help our linemen out and keep them off Ben in the 2nd half... Is that Not what halftime is for? The Eagles killed us continuously the whole game.. and it just seems like we never did anything to correct it and get Ben some help.. I blame the coaches for this!!!


I am just really irritated with Tomlin and Co. right now. I just wonder what Mr. Rooney is thinking in the back of his mind of him as well..

Im truly not upset with Tomlin because of how he kept this team how Cowher would have wanted it. Tomlin is now 12-7 last 2 years and kept us with a defensive mind and agreed with Dick L.

The only thing im upset with is the lack of OL draft picks this year, but the Rooney's always make excellent picks so im guessing it will all work out.

Of Cours the OL coach should be gone after this season. Obviously what he is teaching them or the adjustments there learning are not helping and he just has not impressed any of the Steeler nation over the last 4 years now.

I have a feeling Rooney is a lot more patient than you're being. In fact, I know he is - that's kinda why Cowher hung around after the 3-year slide from 1998-2000 when this team failed to make the playoffs at all. This is also essentially the same OL that Ben got sacked 49 times behind in 2006. Tomlin inherited that problem, he didn't create it.

Lets take a look

2003 - Cowher
1st round Troy P
2nd round Alonzo Jackson

2004 - Cowher
1st Round Big Ben
2nd round Ricardo Colclough

2005 - Cowher
1st round Heath Miller
2nd round Bryant McFadden

2006 - Cowher
1st round Santonio Holmes
2nd round Anthony Smith

2007 - Tomlin
1st round Timmons
2nd round Woodley

2008 - Tomlin
1st round Mendenhall
2nd round Sweed

Ok, well the draft selections by Timmons aren't that bad when really looked at historically.

The Eagles Defense did great, bottom line, 6 sacks in 9 pass attempts is a ridiculous stat that isn't likely to be duplicated all year by any team. Coaches had a bad game plan going in, sure, we didn't adjust sure. But I believe in the long run, Tomlin will be just fine as our head coach and I smell SBs in our future.

By the way, I have been calling for Sweed to start even if he "can't run routes" the guy is 19 feet tall and Ben can just toss it up and he can come down with it in the red zone.

I am not a Nate fan at all.

yeh Fansince 76' the guy seems like he doesnt know how to fix that problem either... The guy was a defensive coodinator for one year.. his defense sucked vs the pass and that Vikings team still does.. he comes to a team that is very talented and pretty young on offense, all he needs to do is get Offensive line help and defensive line depth right?... well the guy has done neither so far!
Just not bought into Tomlin myself, but maybe I will be wrong and I will be the first to admit to it...

well apparently he couldn't even beat out dallas baker for an active roster spot !!! hey it just takes some guys a little longer to adjust to a pro offense. it took burress 3 years till he started showing descent production.

Thats true Master...

I hate to be down on the guy, but look what those drops do for the Browns' WR ya know... he could have atleast 20 more receptions last season. Edwards has all the talent in the world for the Browns, but he lacks concetration and I just wonder if that is what is going on with Sweed, that and maybe having a hard time learning our offense.

I kind of want to see Baker do well, so I don't mind seeing him out there either. I just hate that Nate drops balls at big times.

Great point with Burress, he wasn't a super star day 1. Even Holmes took an entire season to have an impact game.

C'mon Elvis - don't you feel you are being just a tad unfair here to Tomlin? The guy took Cowher's 8-8 team from 2006 and turned them back into AFCN champs last season with the help of his coaches and coordinators, which includes Bruce Arians. We are only going into Game #4 in a 16 game season and have played poorly overall in ONE of those games. Sure I put a LOT of blame for last Sunday's gagfest on the OL, but I also give credit where credit is due - Andy Reid and Jim Johnson called an excellent game plan and the Eagles players did exactly what was expected of them.

If we see another couple of performances by our O and line like the Eagles' game, then we can start to question the coaches' strategies but after one loss? I think that is terribly premature and extremely unfair.
