Question Mike Tomlin

What do you all think of him? I think it was one of the biggest mistakes to let Ken Whisenhunt go, as he would have served as a real good coach here. What I saw last season was a sight I never want to see again. Players were playing with absolutely no passion out there. The defense couldn't even wrap people up when they got their hands on them, is that typical of a Pittsburgh Steeler Defense? I think not. And then he comes out with a quote from gladiator stating ''We will unleash hell" only to completely fold to the Oakland Raiders. The next game he says there will be serious coaching changes, but yet nothing happens and we continue to fold to the Cleveland Browns of all teams. I'm just sick of it, he shows no emotion out there as a coach.

Yea he sucks that superbowl he won means nothing and since it was even against Ken it REALLY means nothing......your right hes terrible


this thread will be fun

Now its your opinion to think ken would have been a better canditate for the job, i have no objection to that opinion,( i dont agree with it but no objection) but Mike Tomlin is a pretty darn good coach in his second year he won a superbowl and i really do not think hes entirely to blame for this seasons flaws

and the whole shows no emotion thing....ummm if you have seen a steelers game you clearly see he is a pretty emotional guy and he gets as pumped as the players do after a big play

Just give it a year. The Crydinals will go 7-9 this season with Matt Leinart at QB and everybody will be saying Whiz is the next Dick Jauron, Cam Cameron or Mike Mularkey.

Yeah, cause the Cards defense really played with some passion this season.

Look, 3 years, even without a Superbowl win already, is too early to start making these kind of judgments. Whether you like him or not doesn't really matter either...apparently the Steelers FO saw something in him that they didn't see in Wiz, and it's obviously paid off already.

Are things going to be perfect every year? Absolutely not...they never have been under any coach of any team, let alone the 3 the Steelers have hired in the past 40 years. But this teams FO is not like other FO's that bail on a coach after a poor season or two. Everyone has had 3 seasons to adjust and accept this, time to get over it.

Coach Tomlin was the best choice then and he remains best choice now IMO.

I LOVE that he doesn't let his emotions get the best of him in game. We've had 15 years of that rah rah style and imo it's a refreshing change to have Tomlin's demeanor on the sidelines.

Wasn't his fault the D slipped last year. I call it SB hangover. Fact of the matter is he had us fighting and scratching every game imo.

I've always felt that with Tomlin's style this team will NOT seem panicky or flustered when adversity hits in the big games. I think that's bearing itself out.

We just had an off year and need to get some help imo.

Vincent is going to love this thread...

As for the OP...well, what I REALLY want to say to you would get me infracted for sure, so instead I'll just say I strongly disagree with your opinion, and leave it at that.

EDIT: I see he's already joined the party. Have fun, boys and girls!
