    Proud of the guys today. They played with a lot of passion on all fronts.


    I knew the defense wasn't as bad as they've been playing. Hope to see more of what we did today.

    He coached 3 seasons with the Titans. Only had one winning season but had a 36 year old Matt Hassleback, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jake Locker as his QB's in those 3 seasons.

    He's a detail oriented coach that gets the most out of his line, Id like to see him get a chance with the talent on this roster which is much better than he had in Tennessee.

    In your scramble to defend Tomlin, you missed the point.
    Please show me where I said fire Tomlin (I didn't).
    I was listing some current coordinators who hadn't previously been head coaches, making them what I would consider 'up and coming coordinators', because that's what we were discussing. I didn't state "here is a list of Tomlin replacements".
    Paul Guenther is there because he was on the list of DC's I found on wikipedia who hadn't been NFL head coaches at some point, no other reason (although he is from PA, which seems to be important to the Rooney's).



    Can a Steelers fan really afford to call any other defense garbage...

    I wasn't on during the game, but I had to find the reaction to that play. I can't believe the broadcast crew said nothing. It was so clear that Bostic simply stumbled while trying to get up. I don't think I've ever seen something like that flagged.

    I went to a Steelers bar here in KC and couldn't be on the board today. But I just sat here and read every post in this GAMEDAY thread envisioning the game all over again in my head. GREAT DAY!!!

    Plus flagging that, but not flagging the shove on Connor when he was out of bounds. I don’t get the consistency there. For me, neither should have been flagged, but they’ve called the hit out of bounds for lesser offences this season.

    There is way too much happiness on this board today. GROSS.

    Also, T.J. Watt is in a three-way tie for the league leader in sacks. And he's tied with his brother. AMAZING.

    Watt probably won't be heard from for the next three games again :lolol:.

    I remember he had an unremarkable record in TN. That's why I ask if he's head coach material. Norv Turner and Phillips are great coordinators but, horrible head coaches. Is Munchak different?

    I explained his unremarkable record. Nobody wins without talent, especially at QB.

    Norv had some good seasons, his stint in SD certainly wasn't horrible, even had a 13-3 season.

    Wade had a .546 winning pct and had some atrocious teams.

    Munch hasn't had nearly as much opportunity as HC as either of those guys so it's impossible to say but look at his strengths, hard nose guy, attention to detail, accountability. What does everyone here complain about with Tomlin?

    I admire those attributes but IMO if there ever is a change at HC I want our next coach to be highly proficient in X and O s . I think it is becoming more of a thinking mans game especially with the physicality being legislated out of the game. If the HC isn't a X and O guy he will need to be surrounded by coordinators at both OC and DC that are. IMO that's part of the problem now...

    You know you can hear it in your head, "but, he did it with Schottenheimers players" I'm not knocking Munchak. I just don't see enough of him living where I do. I saw lots of Norv! He managed to help kill 3 different teams!

    The difference is Bostic's hit was on a quarterback, but you're right. Neither should have been called, but the hit on Conner was more violent and potentially more dangerous.

    I don't I'm just going by your description of him. It sounds like you know a lot about him and I figured it would be one of the things you mentioned...if so ++

    Probably because so far this season our coaches have decided to use him in coverage more and rush only 3.
    More chances equal more opportunity. It's pretty unrealistic to expect that production every week and sometimes your gonna run into a buzz saw of a matchup. He was held,mugged and roughed up by the Ravens but one thing you can never question is his effort. He is always hustling and making plays all over the field. TJ is the least of our problems. I wish we had a bookend.....
