Default Re: Tomlin on why he didn't go for a 2pt-conversion

Tomlin has a history of bad choices with 2 pt conversions, it's one of his weak points. However, the plebes acting like he's a helpless bottom feeder propped up by everyone around him need to come back to reality, they want to pile the teams negatives on Tomlin while attributing its positives to someone else, people frequently did this with Arians too, it's too extreme. It's possible for a coach to be good at some things and bad at others.

Read the quote, listen to the man and pretend you have even been on the sidelines coaching a bunch of 8 year olds. His defense showed they could not stop Ellen Degeneres from hitting on men, let alone stop a professional football team from scoring, so he was more worried about getting TD's and not 2 pt conversions.

I think Tomlin looked really bad in his post-game press conference yesterday. He looked like someone hit him upside the head with a shovel. He had a "what the hell just happened" look about him. I hope he reflects on that.

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
And San Fran has won multiple Super Bowls since firing him. They certainly didn't go through any sort of playoff drought shortly after firing him.

So he gave up on trying two point conversions in a game he knew he couldn't win but tried the onside kick at the end of the game? Please someone end this "Rooney Rule" experiment and get a real head coach in here, now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He should be used to losing to the botton dwellars of the AFC. It has become his calling card since he arrived in Pittsburgh.

Oh, please do elaborate. I can't wait to hear where your brilliant reasoning is going. Do go on...

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.
Isn't it ironic that the guy we ran out of town (Arians) is having success with a rookie QB but the guy who was handed the keys to a Porsche can't do shit. I think we found the real problem my friends.
