Yeah man, great post. Without a few down years, the successful years kind of lose some significance, as long as the down years remain short-lived! If we do end up going in a different direction for HC, I don't even know where to begin. Munchak? Without knowing the intricacies of what goes on behind closed doors, I think that we should afford Tomlin the same benefit we gave Cowher, in that he (Tomlin) should be able to work with a new GM. Let LeBeau "retire", terminate the contract of Colbert, and let Tomlin be the Captain of the ship. With DL and Colbert out of the picture, it allows Tomlin to build the team the way he sees fit, which I think would be a good thing. This based on the assumption that Tomlin's power is somewhat limited. Not cool to fire a guy until he's given the chance to be the HEAD coach, and I think TOmlin is at that point in his career where he should be given that chance. Again, just assuming he's not.
