Sporano did a great job turning the team around, but did it with basically no struggles throughout the year. Almost no injuries to his roster and quite possibly the easiest schedule for any team this season....if he had to deal with half of the crap that Tomlin had to this year they would be at the bottom of their division again plain and simple.

In my opinion it comes down to Tomlin, Smith and Fischer, but of course nearly every Steelers fan is going to vote for Tomlin, just like if Norv was on that list nearly every Chargers fan would vote for him. Don't be so hypocritical.
Tomlin and Fisher had great seasons, but both teams are so talented it's hard to give too much credit to the coaches. That's not to say both guys didn't do great jobs...

But Miami doesn't have much talent, save for Ronnie Brown and Joey Porter. To go 11-5 and win their division after going 1-15 last year, that's a Coach of the Year performance.

I disagree Tomlin had much higher expectations and going 8-8 with a team like Miami this year would have been considered great coaching. Let's see what this coach does with the pressure on him. Tomlin has put his stamp on this team so early and really knows how to make this team play at a high level each week.

Tomlin looks so happy in that picture on the NFL voting site. I think it's the first time I've ever seen him look pleasant. Usually, on TV while roaming the sidelines, he's all focused and intense, which is awesome. But, still, it's nice to see a smiling picture... lol.
