    No worries. You and several other people on here have been talking seriously about his job security for years. To the point of boycotts (that aren’t boycotts) you know what that mean? Diddly squat. The only times you see Tomlin on the sidelines is when they train the camera on him. How do you know what he looks like off camera? Would you rather he make weird faces like Harbaugh? Or chomp a pound of gum like Carroll? Now, I’m sure, with all your NFL coaching experience, you’d handle the clock much better. Send your resume to the Rooneys. There’s is the only opinion that counts!

    Unfortunately his job security is solid as long as Art II is there. Unfortunately.

    That's not a Tulsa helmet. That's my fantasy football helmet. The "Van Buren Boys." Paying homage to Kramer and the VB Boys. They never hasstle their own kind.

    Exactly. Sure, Freiermuth has to hold on to the ball there, but Rudolph should have thrown that ball away. At worst, give Boswell the shot at the 57-yard game-winner.

    Hey me too! City Heights Elementary! But the Van Buren Boys is aalso reference to Seinfeld. The fact that I lived there was a double bonus.

    Tomlin’s clock management and timeout usage has always been terrible and you would think after 15 years of coaching it would get better and it has actually gotten worse. He stinks at it period and you can see week in week out when they get in situations where their needs to be urgency or clock usage he screws it up more then helps it.

    One more thing here please Stop with the crap too of “oh you think you could manage the clock better with all your NFL experience”. I know I see things and notice things that Tomlin doesn’t during the games and I never coached a game in my life and I’m not getting paid 10 million dollars a year to do so either. So my message to Tomlin with the clock is do better and figure it out cause the bottom line is you suck at it period.

    We ALL see things better than Tomlin does during games. We have a better view.

    Agree with STOP with the "oh you think you could manage the clock better with all your NFL experience" He stinks at it, and yes many could do better, and yes with the money he is making and as long as he been doing he should be a super star at it, but again how many times do we have to say it, he stinks at it.

    The Van Buren boys secret signal was showing 5 fingers on one hand and 3 on the other to represent Martin Van Buren the 8th president. Too bad for George that he didn't know the signal.

    One week coach is the scapegoat for going for the td in a close game, but in another week he’s the scapegoat for not going for it in a close game. Damned if you do and damned if you don’t

    Huge difference in lining up your offense at the 2 and going for it vs. running a fake FG at the 10 and getting your kicker knocked out. I also defended Tomlin with similar logic applied here for going for it against the Bears.

    There is no difference because people such as yourself are going to ***** no matter what. That’s what you do. Weren’t you supposed to be boycotting football?
