Like I've said, when they handcuff him for the first 58 minutes of most games, he won't always be able to bail the team out in the end. I'm not sure why people are having a hard time understanding that. The Steelers need to change their philosophies on offense from a possession game to a quick strike game.

I apologize for posting that smiley. I don't come here for that.

It's just so weird to see so many of you freaking out over a bad season... like your lives have just come to an end.

If you've ever wondered why so many fans of other teams call Steelers fans spoiled, just read through all the threads on here.

Talkin' about 'Switzerizing" the HC job back in '06, and this has been mentioned countless times.
But, WHY, oh why, did Cowher/Rooney/whoever NOT give the HC job to the "Wiz", back in 06. ???!!!
Grimm/Shwimm, we could have just dumped him later. I dunno ?
I could never understand it fully, and I guess I never will.

"...they decided they didn't want to hire an HC within the Steelers' organization..." , huh?, that never did cut it with me as an excuse, even back then.
and now, it has become a very s-t-u-p-i-d management decision !

I'm dead certain, Cowher felt this team was gonna grab a couple more rings...? Cowher, didn't want, after 15 years, in this pressure-cooker of an HC job anymore, due to family, personal matters,..., fine. I don't deny the man that, and I respect his decision for not staying on as HC.

But why Tomlin, was Tomlin the nice little "yes" man that Steelers\' Management finally wanted ?
ya I know, but we won another SB (actually, LeBeau's DEFENSE had a lot more to do with that win than ppl want to admit!)
so Tomlin is ...., is what ?.
Tomlin inherited a SB calibre team that gelled, that "LeBeau", and Cowher handbuilt from scratch. In fact NO change was made anywhere else in coaching -even Arians' got to stay on, ... ?
Again, none of this makes sense, bringing in a Mike Switzer back then aka, just a "players' coach" -nonetheless, as he has obviously been proved to be now.

Will Tomlin grow through the heat and fire to become a good coach for the Steelers?. Who really knows?
But right now, crap travels UPHIL:L:, the buck stops at the HC position. Sooooo,...

You gotta be kidding,
My question maybe, too late, water under the bridge, .... whatever, but if I am "questioning" managements HC decision back then, so what ? It's a forum, not a Corporate Meeting, with your BOSS.

Mike Tomlin has a winning record as Head Coach of the Steelers. He coached the team to two Super Bowls. Realistically speaking, they are not going to fire Tomlin unless the team totally collapses next season.

I agree Tomlin bought a race car,won a race with it and now it needs new parts and the guy cannot begin to replace broken/misfiring parts.

Tomlin's success as a coach has been masked by the talent of his team and Lebeau. He doesn't read the game well. The players and in particular the QBs just placate to him. If you listen to the NFL SFX show featuring Tomlin, you can hear this false appeasement to his opinion from Ben and Chuck.
