Some people should really heed their own advice.

Back to Tomlin, I see he continues to flap his gums, now we can go over to Ben and him playing or not.

Who said Fire Mike? lol Rooneys won't fire him ove rthis, Rooneys are a hardline Goodel backer, they won't back their players. If anything they will work th eplyaer to the cliff and nudge him over it before giving and full feldge backing.
Personally I could not care less who the coach is, the players are who I root for. Tomlin can clean the bathrooms for all I care and make 5million. This team goes as Ben goes and the Def goes. That all there is to it. Either one can carry us, not Tomlin.

Just Shut Up Mike, your starting to look really stupid with your on again off agaoin comments.
I apologize to the general populace of the forum beforehand for the language, but...you are a ****ing idiot.

You guys have one of the best coaches in the league. Don't throw him under the bus. He dosen't deserve it at all.
Tell Harrison to follow the rules and shut up.
Please re-read my post in it's entirety, you misunderstood me.

I understand you think my post was directed at you but I am actually with you and agree with everything you said. I was just piling on. I can see why you thought that.

He hit a quarterback after he threw the ball, in the face, with his face. That is illegal. The circumstances surrounding the hit may be ambiguous, but unfortunately for Harrison, the league doesn't care about that and expects defenders to be able to adjust in like, a tenth of a second. But there is no dispute whatsoever that by the standards of the league rules, the hit was illegal.

I need not follow my own advice. Why would I listen to me?lol. What I say doesn't effect the Steelers one bit. This is a message board, a sounding board a discussion board from dumb things to intelligent things
Everything posted here doesn't have to be agreed on by everyone or commented on. But this was a good topic, and apparently Tomlins mouth and flip flopping on things keeps adding to it.

Tomlins mouth does effect things and can sway opinions. He should've waited out the process. Than he could've sounded very intelligent and came out with a simple statment. Instead he choose not to back his players in this regard.

Somewhat intelligent, after the fact statement:
"The league deemed James's hit to be illegal, the appeal process played out and we need to abide by the ruling. Its unfortunate. James needs to blah blah blah."

BUT NOOOOOOO he needed to come before and state the hit was illegal and basically he did the crime now has to do the time. That was BS and we all know it. I'm sure that played well with the abitrator. I would love


If he had balls, he could've said this:

"Well we have been fined again, for no apparent reason other than we are the Steelers the hardest hitting mofo's in the NFL. We can live with that, we have to live with that, next up Alex Smith"

James really needs to make a statment in one of the last 2 games. Come in past the line balls out to the QB and stop at the QB and finger tap him or come in, and grab the QB towel. Than raise his hands like the QB is supposed to stop when I pull the towel out.

Now that would be some funny poop!
