The National Football League Owners are meeting out in Phoenix, Arizona in what can only be described as a ‘meeting of really rich old white guys.’ Well, it is! Also at these meetings are team general managers and head coaches and that means the Pittsburgh Steelers head man Mike Tomlin is there enjoying the weather if nothing else. Tomlin spoke to media this morning and while he didn’t make any comments out of the ordinary for himself, I interpret some of them as a clear message to the fans, players and rest of the league. Here’s my take… On the issue of Todd Haley’s first year as the offensive coordinator Tomlin said, ”I thought we did some good things early. I thought we waned down the stretch.” Translation: “Teams were not ready early in the season for what we could do offensively but through injuries and ‘stale as month-old bread’ play-calling we suffered.” In regards to whether the team is ‘rebuilding’ Tomlin said, ”I acknowledge we got a ways to go,” We lost close games

  • I have to be honest! I think this past year was Tomlin's worse coaching performance as the head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers? I thought he coached upon emotion. Coaches coach and players play with emotion. I also thought he lacked preparation and poor decision making. But, I do like what he is saying at the meetings. I might be discouraged with him, but I also will support him.
