Default Sad news

Mike Tomlin's father, Ed, died of a heart attack Monday, and Running back coach Kirby Wilson remains in critical condition after suffering burns over 45% of his body, and having smoke inhalation injuries on top of that.

It's a sad day in Pittsburgh, please pray and wish well for both the Kirby family, and the Tomlin family.

what a bummer. i was hoping for a more postive outlook and news for coach kirby. condolences to coach tomlin and his family.

it seems in a year of distractions, injuries, fines, suspensions, tragedy, and even death, it just wasnt meant to be the steelers year.

wow...that sucks.
Was it a sudden thing in the case of Tomlin's dad?

As for Kirby, it seems much worse than originally thought....at this point i'm wondering if he's even going to make it through.
As said above....with these things plus all the injuries....it just wasn't Pittsburgh's year.

Here's to next year...its going to be better (it has to)

Whether it happens suddenly or slowly, the loss of a parent may be a natural part of life but it is still heartbreaking

Condolences to Coach Tomlin and his family

according to the Ocala news he collapsed after a day of fishing while talking to his brother. From the article, he sounded like a good man.
Best wishes to Coach Tomlin.

Terrible news! I wonder how old Tomlins dad was? Wishing Kirby pulls through and gets back to his dream job some day!
