Tomlin himself noted that he was astounded that the score was as close as it was, considering all of that. But maybe that was modesty on his part.

Exactly, the score was pretty close considering all of that. Sure Tomlin has made questionable decisions but On the whole I'm extremely happy with him.

People need to be stop being so reactionary and ease off on the hysterics.

How in the hell is it a coaches fault when you turn the ball over 8 times. The fact the game was close with us having a chance to win if not for the blown fumble call late in the fourth quarter tells me Tomlin and these coaches do a pretty good job. This team is being held together by duct tape.
The browns have been playing hard fought close games all season, taking healthy teams to the brink, the Steelers are a MASH unit right now, I expected a tough close game without the turnovers, 8 of them and we lose, but it must be Tomlins fault, GEEZ!!!
Next thing you know there will be people on here calling for LeBeau's head because the D didn't score ENOUGH touchdowns.
The over reaction from any loss with some of you in utterly insane!!

This was a sample of a Tomlin team without a franchise under center.

Any coach who loses to the Raiders, Titans and Browns will have lots of threads, ask Norv. Lol

He does have a high standard for incompetence


Here is the revised order of Mike Tomlin's five worst regular-season losses (today's loss replaced '07 Jets debacle):

5. "Batch of Turnovers" Nov. 25, 2012, 20-14 at Browns -- Steelers commit eight (8) turnovers, including three interceptions from third-string QB Charlie Batch and one lost fumble from each of their top four running backs in a historically hideous performance that shall live in infamy. Browns improve to 3-8.

4. "Abomination by the Bay" Sept. 23, 2012, 34-31 at Oakland -- Steelers fumble away a 10-point fourth-quarter lead against a battered and brutally bad Raiders team that was coming off a blowout loss to Miami (and would be destroyed by Denver in its next game). Steelers manage all of one (1) sack on Carson Palmer's 34 attempts. Defense so embarrassingly bad that Tomlin justified in going for it deep in own territory in tie game.

3. "Music City Monstrosity" Oct. 11, 2012, 26-23, at Tennessee -- Pitted against a defense on pace to give up the most points in NFL history, the Steelers score early on an 82-yard pass to Mike Wallace and never attempt another deep ball. Ziggy Hood registers zero (0) tackles (and zero assists). Ike Taylor gives up eight receptions and commits three penalties. Tennessee, led by 72-year-old backup QB Matt Hasselbeck, hadn't scored on a drive of 80 yards or more all season, but, sure enough, launches an 11-play, 80-yard TD march in 4th. Steelers defense so utterly disorganized that it accidentally rushes only two (2) players on a 3rd-and-10 on Titans' winning field-goal drive.

2. "Bruce Almighty" Dec. 6, 2009, 27-24 vs. Oakland -- Two words: Bruce. Gradkowski. He throws for 308 yards and three touchdowns -- ALL IN THE FOURTH QUARTER -- against a hapless and Troy-less Steelers secondary. The loss is the second of three historically humiliating defeats that will complete Tomlin's "Unleash Hell" trilogy, topped only by ...

1. "Bruce Not Mighty" Dec. 10, 2009, at Cleveland -- Bruce Arians figures it's a swell idea to try 32 passes in a wind storm against a 2-11 team. Steelers go open backfield on third-and-1. Ben is sacked eight (8) times. Brady Quinn goes 6 for 19 for 90 yards yet leaves the field a winner. All of Cleveland rejoices, for this is the closest they will get to a Super Bowl. Until Nov. 25, 2012, of course.
