Default Re: Fire Tomlin

What makes matters worse concerning Tomlin is that my buddies who are fans of other teams think he is a good coach. I then have to explain how abysmal his in game decision making is. The poor use of time outs, clock management, field goal attempts, field position mind games. I honestly believe that he adds absolutely nothing to this franchise. He hasn't been able to develop the secondary and that is his bread and butter. Our drafts under him are suspect. But, all you hear from the media (and not to sound racist-but every single black commentator ever) is how great he is so of course people not in the know think he is something he is not.

For his backers, please provide even a handful of instances where his coaching was something to be praised.

Actually the one bright spot has beem the development of the secondary. They are much improved IMO.

So you guys who want to fire Tomlin...would you have fired Chuck Noll after the 1988 season? Or Bill Cowher after the 2000 season?

I look at the man's eyes and his demeanor on the field. Then I look at his decision making and adjustments. I don't see much intelligence there. I just don't. When I listen to him it's even worse. I think he's an average coach at best. That is all. He has been given a yacht to captain and he's turning it into a dingy.

What did Noll in '88 and Cower in 2000 not have that Tomlin has had? Take a look at the roster. Pro bowl/Championship players is the answer. Tomlin was handed a Superbowl quality team and has failed miserably at rebuilding. Tomlin cannot motivate or prepare this team properly week to week and this didn't start this season, I don't have the answer on a replacment coach but this team will not become the disciplined,well rounded team we all have enjoyed until some coaching changes and additude adjustments are made

Yep. Bingo. I've been saying it since 2009. Players coaches don't last long in professional sports. It's unlikely Tomlin will change his stripes, so I'm afraid that the Steelers are in for a long few years. I pray that I'm wrong.
