Default Re: Does Tomlin "stay the course" or make adjustments?

I would hope he's quicker to make adjustments in any phase of the game if something's not working. If Ben still has oatmeal in his brains, get him out of there. If Parker starts out with 10 yards on 8 carries, get his ass out of there and try something else. If the Chargers are blitzing every down and getting pressure, change the playcalling. The games where we really get in trouble, it seems, are the ones where some aspect of the offense just isn't working but we still "stay the course" for too long and end up needing a big finish to pull it off.

Ben will indeed have the happy feet in the pocket this weekend. Hopefully the O will be able to score first and turn this game over to the D. As we all know as Steelers fans especially this year, the Offense usually doesn't show up until they have to come behind and hasn't given the D a lead in most of the games. Maybe the O can turn over a new leaf, since it is a New Year.

I'm actually excited to see if Tomlin takes things to another level. He's played everything well this year, I'm hoping he really puts his stamp on this postseason.

This is a team effort, let's keep rotating all the guys. There's been great rotation on the D-line, let's keep it up. Let's keep the RBs fresh by utilizing them all. Timmons and Foote, make the most of your time on the field.

I have no allegiance to one player, my allegiance is to the STEELERS!!
Three wins away from #6!!

I think Ben will have all those cobwebs out by Sunday. This, however, is coming from someone who has never been concussed...
Notice, I said Think About pulling him.

Sometimes, goofy plays win games...so...

And.....we'll actually be able to tell the difference between a goofy brained Ben and the regular Ben?

Just kidding...........really.

I have complete faith in Tomlin that if Ben is still having issues with his concussion that he would put Lefty in the game on Sunday. This is a playoff game and Tomlin knows what's at stake.

i think tomlin wants to win and if that means pulling ben then he will. this is much different than in 06, we all knew that cowher was going to retire and didnt think things through all the way. if he had then in no way would he had played ben in that raiders game.

i dont think tomlin is afraid of anyone. and if he had to bench his star qb i think he would do it without thinking twice.
