Default Should Rooney fire Tomlin and Arians and bring back Bill Cowher?

I'm sick and tired of the Tomlin/Arians pass happy offense. Commentators are saying we pass too much, former players are saying we pass too much, our WRs say we pass too much, and Rooney has said we pass too much!

Yet the Airheads twins Tomlin/Arians refuse to change and we still PASS TOo DAMN MUCH.

They will not not listen.

Fine

I say FIRE Tomiln/Arians and bring back Bill Cowher!

After all he is available.

Thoughts?

There are no thoughts. My thoughts is that the past is the past and the present is the present. It took Cowher until the end of his career to win a Championship while he PISSED away all of his other opportunities going into his infamous "turtle ball" when he didn't know what else to do when pressed.

Look, I get that the personal we have right NOW doesn't necc fit Arians pass it downfield more often offense, but the facts are that if we win the AFC NORTH, that would be 3 division titles in Tomlin's 4 years here (oh and BTW: He already won a Super Bowl in his 2nd) so before you want to be firing a successful Super Bowl, young, primed, and up-coming stud of the coaching ranks, you might want to go and look over at other teams within the league like the Panthers, Bengals and Browns and see how much they'd appreciate being a Pittsburgh Steelers/Mike Tomlin fan at this time.

You, me and the rest of my Stillers Nation brothers and sisters are spoiled f*cks! Act like it!

That is all.

Cowher never had a QB until the end of his career either and Tomlin won't have one much longer due the beating that Ben takes from our pass happy offense.

I liked Cowher...... With that said i remember that he also did some stupid things (see AFC Championship game vs Chargers).

I wish I had the stats regarding Cowher and how he compares to Tom Coughlin of the Giants. They are almost identical! A NY Giants fan called into a sports talk show with every thing from win loss, super bowls, etc.

IMO coaches do have to coach, but I think sometimes they are more fortunate to be part of a franchise and or system.

Tomlin never had the offensive line that Cowher always had either ( on another note, Cowher didn't even really NEED a QB because he ran it 90-10 most of the time anyway. Yeah, you could say QB was the missing piece, butt he dude lost like, 9 billion AFC Championships AT HOME, don't you think coaching comes into play? Like I don't know, not running Jerome Bettis inside the 5 yard line against Denver in the '97 Title game?)

Think about it, it goes hand and hand but I can't believe I'm arguing this. I loved Cowher, he WAS Pittsburgh for so long, but it's now a new era and that era is Mike Tomlin and we already are 1-0 in Super Bowls.

No. I don't think Cowher will have the passion he had the first time around. After he won the SB in 06' he came back the next season with a piss-poor attitude as far as his motivation was concerned. He didn't really want to be the coach anymore the year after the SB win and it showed (the team went 8-8 AND he retired after that year) in his actions and the team's.
I don't think he would stay too long if he did return. In addition, it would be a PR nightmare if the Rooney's replaced Tomlin with Cowher considering Tomlin has a very good W-L record since he came here.
No. Cowher had his time, its now Tomlin's ship. It would be kind of "weird" to have Cowher back now.

No. Tomlin's demeanor and intelligence is much more preferable to Cowher. He'll be a great, if he isn't already...........
