Default Did Tomlin cheat on Ben?

The Pittsburgh media has been pretty harsh on Tomlin. I like the guy. I think he has a solid future. I don't understand how he could have "lost" a team that he took to the superbowl and won and then had at 6-2, after a crushing win against Denver. Tomlin turned Mendenhall from a Bust to a Pro Bowler.

But something happened along the way. The story does not make sense. It's like Tiger Woods hitting a tree. Only later did we learn the truth. Something will come out to explain the collapse. Someone has gotten too big for his bitches (britches).

Maybe he didn't loose the team himself, I think BA plays a big part in it.

Losing will really expose a team. On the other hand, winning will cover everything up.

Just look at the Pats - they dropped a couple games and suddenly everyone was second-guessing Bellichick, something was "wrong" with Tom Brady, Randy Moss became too lazy, etc.

This is pretty much exactly what happened to the Steelers. We had numerous games last year resembling this year's Chiefs/Raiders/Browns debacles. The difference? Last year we won those games. A simple 3-point swing in each game this year really is the difference between the Steelers being considered elite, and being considered at rock-bottom.

I suspect Ben is the only offensive player that likes BA. Just my thought on the subject and I also think it's divided the locker room.

The fact that Ben Roethlisberger likes Bruce Arians is part of why I believe Arians might be demoted instead of fired outright. Maybe Arians will switch roles with Ken Anderson.

BA is BAAAAAAAD!! for this team. When you have a qb who by his own admission holds the ball too long. You keep your defence on the field. All those 4th qtr let goes or whatever you want to call them?? Inc on 3rd down? Someone, anyone tell me when this year we ran back to back run plays? Have we even tried to run on 3rd and 3 or better?

Hey, Rick, let me help help you out with that. That would've been just as recently as this past Thursday night. They actually ran the ball back to back on the first two offensive plays from scrimmage. They were fairly successful, too, picking up nine yards on the two carries. This left them in a very desirable situation of 3rd and 1. At which point Bruce Air-Head forgot what the essence of football is and decided to go empty wide shotgun, and got his QB sacked, killing any momentum gained by pounding the d for 9 yds the first two plays of the game. That guy really is clueless for real.

i don't think he was a bust because he really didn't get much playing time. i don't think he is a pro bowler either. the jury is still out.

The jury has been noticeably absent for at least 8 weeks.

Where is Mr U.F. Knuckle? He used to be judge, jury and executioner on all topics regarding Rashard Mendenhall.

I really do miss his insight into the state of the running game of the steelers?
