Wowsy, wowsy, woo-woo!
Yeah, made diamonds by hand.
Here is a better List:
I applaud Tomlin
We have been luck to have him
Recently just like Ben he has underachieved in my highly biased opinion
We haven’t been in a SB in 16 years (counting this) that makes us below average statistically
He’s been given all the new toys he has asked for
If we don’t end the season on a fairly high note it’s time to punt his butt
Unfortunately he will still have a year on his contract or more if extended
I hope Omar plays wait and see
If we do punt normally one would expect mostly a new coaching staff
As is Tomlin and Canada do not align contract wise
Khan won't be the one making the call to extend Tomlin or not, that will be Art's decision.
The 70's set the standard, tired narrative, huh? Not sure what team you have watched from the 70s to present but that has always been the standard here and a successful season was based on at least making the post season.
The narrative that needs to be done with is that simply finishing with a winning record but failing to make the post season is a measure of success, that's pitiful. That may be acceptable to some but I always hope for more, having a shot at post season football and looking towards the Superbowl is what is acceptable to me as a Steelers fan, but hey, to each his own. I will continue to hope once again this year.
Well, I see nothing wrong with being excited about a good draft class. But I wholeheartedly agree on your other points.
Art will have to sign off on it but it will most definitely be a joint effort
For the first time ever... I can confidently state this.
My reaction towards this list matches up to your picture in the most exact way possible.
Talks are likely still ongoing. Tomlin definitely seems to want to stay in Pittsburgh for as long as possible and Kahn/Weidl want him along for the ride. People need to remember that Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher both left on their own terms. I seriously doubt AR 2 is going to pooch kick Tomlin out for it is likely that Tomlin will leave on his own terms as well.
If the standard is the Super Bowl then how can just making the playoffs be a successful season?
It’s all about context. The Steelers and Tomlin are praised for this current non-losing season streak because it shows a level of consistency that’s rare in the nfl. The truth is that the team hasn’t had a realistic shot at seriously contending for a SB since ‘17. Since then the team has been transitioning from 1 “franchise qb” to another hopeful one. Anybody who was expecting the team to compete for a title with post-‘17 Ben either doesn’t know football or just isn’t realistic.
All of the “man Super Bowl is the standard not having non-losing seasons” whining just completely context and the circumstances. They were supposed to be SB contenders with a rookie qb or a shot Ben?
I am not disputing, just a different recollection. I thought Noll could stay, but most of the Asst's were going to be let go. He decided to retire rather than going through an entire rebuild. I may be wrong, and while he made the final decision, there was conditions to it.
Over the last three years, the Steelers (with a fading Ben and then the combo of Picket and Trubisky) have the third most wins in the AFC, trailing only Kansas City and Buffalo. The end of the Ben era, rebuilding or whatever you want to call it, and we're third over the last three years.
Couldn’t disagree more.
Coach T has had winning seasons 13 of 16 years (81%) and somehow got 12 wins (and an 11 game win streak) with that shoddy, depleted 2020 team (after losing Shazier, AB, Le’Veon and with Ben beginning to decline.
Look, I grew up in North Carolina and I’m a diehard TARHEELS fan. Tarheel fams hated on Roy Williams for years, said he couldn’t manage the clock, etc. But numbers are stubborn. He was more successful than Dean Smith. I offer that to say that good coaches and good QBs are rare. Tomlin’s performs and he keeps the club winning and earning. Most that play for MT say he brings a level of knowledge and excellence that outclasses other franchises. Give it up. We have a good on and he’s here for as long as he wants to be.
It is time for the Steelers to be relevant again. Haven't we had a first ballot HOF qb, a very good wr and RB for Tomlin's career?
Agreed 3 playoff wins in 12 years. We got ourselves a good one boys. MT 4 Life
Squeaky toy has spoken again
And again and again……
I would like to win an occasional playoff game
It’s been a while but I don’t remember how long
I know everyone likes to bash the coach and blame him for all things wrong with the Steelers.
I think Mike Tomlin is going to show everyone that he is still a great coach and this team is ready to win in the post season starting now. I really believe that this team will start ascending and be contending for Super Bowls with the current core of players led by Mike Tomlin.
i heard Tomlin wanted to go into media, last year. oh well, I guess he will keep coaching.....here.
WIN a PLAYOFF game. Forget SB's, that is years away, with the current crop of AFC HOF QB's in front of us. How about this: get to some AFCCG's!! How about that - is that asking too much? Some of yinzers are getting used to mediocrioty.
