The loss to the Bengals is still all to fresh in our minds, but this puts it into some perspective for everyone. If you’re a supporter of Mike Tomlin, that’s fine. If you’re a detractor then that’s fine too. Either way, changes need to happen, and not just little ones. If major changes aren’t made by Mr Cliche and Kevin Colbert who is also to blame for this debacle of a season this year then it will easily become 4 out of 5 seasons with no playoff wins and around here that is completely and totally unacceptable. This team under Tomlin this season has no identity what so ever and it seems as if it lacks a great deal of leadership on both offense and defense. This team was 6-3 after 9 games and had a playoff spot well in hand at that point and even had a great chance of winning the division and then boom they lose 5 out of their next 6 and if not for a Charlie Batch miracle win in Baltimore this team would be staring hard at a 6 game losing streak.

  • Time for the Tomlin experiment to end, you can plainly see hes no coach, when your team comes out flat and ill prepared to play, its him and only him, cowhers team is pretty much gone, so it shows his lack of coaching experience, now that he has to coach, well its obvious he cant, injuries, other teams have them and have fill ins and continue winning, except the steelers, why, lack of coaching, give him his walking papers and send him off, along with todd haley and colbert can follow as well, seems these folks think their bigger than what they are, theres a problem for mr.rooney to abdicate his ambassadorship, and sending these three packing, is a very good start.
  • You are right on! It is time to make some major changes. Who knows, maybe Wiz or a Mularkey clone will come back as OC. They better find 2 quarterbacks fast. Make Charlie a QB coach and start the bloodletting. Tomlin clearly has lost control of team and Rooney is losing control of empire. They must step up and take back control.
  • tomlin and big mouth ben must go
  • No rottenberger needs to stay, but needs a coach to put him in his placee and humble him.
