This is just a typical emotional overreaction. Exactly how was Sunday's loss Tomlin's fault?

I normally don't laugh at one of our guys, but when Murray (or whatever his name is, Dallas RB) ran over Victoria, I laughed and thought, now that's a running back.
I hope Mr. Rooney see's what the fans are seeing too, cause it aint pretty.

The front office has gotten more and more fucked up since Dan left. Hopefully that'll change over the course of the next few months with him coming back as chairman.

For awhile, maybe a few years now, whether due to injury or age, Troy is average at best. He is actually a liability now. I know...blasphemy! But watching him stroll around out there, playing way off his man, taking poor angles and bad tackling one can almost forget he used to be one of the best in the game. It's yet another position that needs to be addressed on top of LT, CB, RB, OLB, NT. Things are not looking good on the defensive side of the ball as we have failed to really draft a stud since...hmm...when was the last great D player we drafted. Timmons? Woodley? Damn!

Timmons has been the best player on defense this whole year, but Woodley, I do not know what has happened to him this year, but he has not stepped up when needed.

Been like this for the last six years. The only difference is we have guys who can return the ball when they don't get called back because some interchangable practice squad scrub realized that the only way his number would ever be heard in an NFL stadium was if a referee called it.

Ahh... Back in the 60's they had a coach named Bill Austin... but No, that was before my time.

Troy used to be able to get away with the jumping around stuff because he could make the play. He's lost a step and needs to instead rely on his knowledge of the game and return to playing strong, fundamentally sound football.

We don't have any "DOGS" on D, anymore! The days on J Pezzy are gone. Not many playmakers on D, besides Timmons.
