i think a lot of the cowher bashing, stemmed from his reluctance to bring in a REAL quarterback.

There is no reason to be calling for the firing of Tomlin I believe he will be a great coach in the nfl.

It is my experience that the front office has more patience than the fans do. JMO

Why not just get rid of Ben too? That way, we won't have to worry about a $100 million QB getting the shit knocked out of him and suffering a career ending injury.

An improved OL is a MUST in the draft and signing a proven C and possibly other OL'men is paramount to not only the O's successes in the future, but to Ben's health and career. I've always believed that no matter who the QB is, a solid OL is vital to his success.

Same here, I haven't seen it or heared it. Now Bruce Arians is a different story.

I've not heard a word of this and if true, its just plain ridiculous. This isnt the Raiders, Redskins or the Cowboys and I remember it took Cowher a few years to reach his first Super Bowl. The Rooneys have quite the good track record of hiring good HCs so I have no doubt in Tomlin and his abilities.

If you are one who believes Tomlin should be canned then, in my opinion, you obviously arent a Steeler fan because that is not how it works for this organization. The Steelers win with true talent, not $$$ and that takes a little time. From my count, the Steelers are traditionally a pretty good team.
