Default Mike Tomlin voted "Coach Players Want To Play For Most"

Steelers Mike Tomlin voted "Coach Players Want To Play For Most" in Sporting News poll

By Neal Coolong on Nov 7



Steelers Mike Tomlin received 35 of 103 votes cast, a landslide winner in a Sporting News poll of current NFL players asked which coach they'd want to play for the most.

It was a "varsity football" victory for Steelers coach Mike Tomlin.

Although he probably cares little about the award, he has to appreciate somewhat the fact players chose Tomlin by more than a 3-to-1 margin over Patriots coach Bill Belichick as the coach players would want to play for, in a poll recently done by The Sporting News. Players could not choose their current coach.

Sports News quoted one player as saying:

What I liked about him the most is that he's very up front and honest with you. You kind of always know where you stand with him-good, bad or indifferent. You appreciate the honesty of knowing where you stand. And the other thing would be that he just kind of always says the right thing, whether it's to you, the group, the media. Once again, whether it's good, bad, he just kind of says the right thing. He's got that knack.

SN attributes the quote to an "NFC offensive player who used to play for Tomlin."

Making guesses on who it could have been, former Steelers tight end Matt Spaeth, who's now with Chicago, comes to mind. He was one of Tomlin's first draft picks, and played with him for four seasons. Detroit's Stefan Logan was with Tomlin's Steelers in 2009, a free agent signing. Former Steelers practice squad player Jamon Meredith is in Tampa Bay.

Green Bay's John Kuhn was released by Tomlin, so it wouldn't seem likely it was him.

Tomlin is 60-28 in five seasons and eight games into the 2012 year, with a Super Bowl championship, two AFC championships and three AFC North division titles.

"bu..bu..bu..but hes black, has that big eyed 'deer in headlights' look as if he doesnt care, doesnt spit or show emotion, and only wins with cowhers players"



-68 players polled and thousands of hater steelerfans

imma have to get with coolong and tell him that it was most likely kuhn who made those remarks. im sure he was dealt with straight up when released and his career blossomed in green bay because arians dont need no stinking offense. plus any other former steeler offensive players who now play with an NFC team arent even worth talking to by SportingNews.

I don't think anybody on this board would argue that Mike Tomlin is not a good man and it is widely known he is a players coach, so this does not surprise me at all.

and that's not an easy thing to do since Cowher could only win once in 15 years with his players.

I'd be willing to bet Tomlin would have zero without BR7......Plain and simple, need a franchise QB. Any Head Coach.

I'm not sure this is a good thing at all. He really doesn't seem to have much discipline on this team. Lots of off teh field issues since he's been here and penalties. Just my opinion but I really don't care if they like the coach just as long as they respect him and he gest the most out of them. Not sure "likeability" is on the list of characteristics that accomplishes that? Either way, he is a good coach and we are lucky to ahve him and the Rooney's who bring that stability to the organization and don't jump the gun after a bad season and fire everyone!
