I am more concerned about some of the bad decisions on offense and why the team came out flat.
So when it rains the Steelers can't go for two-point conversions? Got it.

What's getting people pissed at Tomlin is that after the game he said he kept Ben in it because the Steelers are "competitors." So if the Steelers are competitors, shouldn't they be doing everything possible to at least try and narrow the lead?

The amount of excuses I am seeing for this piss poor performance is really making me want to throw up.

Blind faith/homerism is worse than bandwagoning. At least bandwagoners disappear.

I don't even mind the homering - when you can still be that optimistic after a loss, it shows your love, no matter how insane it seems lol

I just get tired of people telling me I'm not a fan or to "hit the road, fuck off, we don't want you" when I'm pissed for yet again, another underachieving, lack of effort performance by a team that has a ton of potential. If I wasn't a fan, I would just turn off the tv and not comment. It is interesting to me that apparently there is some sort of law that anoints certain fans to judge who is a fan, and who isn't. I suppose it is easier to focus blasting someone else than the issues that face the team.

Wrong. Dead wrong. He should have gone for it. Period.

Many of us slamming Tomlin for some of his actions this year are not saying he is a bad coach - but he has had a number of bad games this year and his stubborn streak that shows on such plays as the failed 4th and 1 from midfield yesterday has been resulting in more costs than benefits lately

Only on message boards like this will there be multiple pages devoted to a 2 point conversion ...................when the team lost by 10 points. Get a grip whiners and step away from the ledge.

This is complete nonsense, the only chance we had to win that game was to get it back to TWO SCORES, the idiot coach the that possibility down the toilet. His excuses were feeblew beyond belief.

Face it, this guy cannot manage a game.

The team always comes out flat against lesser opponents, and that's on Tomlin too.


This is a guy who brings nothing to the table, except cliched nonsense and platitudes, I want a coach who is smart and adds something, Tomlin is a guy who landed on his feet and has been carried by DLB to 2 SB's.


Tell me, what does Mike Tomlin briniging to the party, because he cannot manage a game to save his life.
