    Except he has a dynasty of trophies to show for it. His team toook one year off and now they are quietly good again. With a rookie QB…

    With a rookie franchise QB...
    Fixed it for you.

    We all know why Belichek has dynasty trophies, but if you want we can still compare Mac Jones to Ben at this point?? ...if you think 32 coaches had to choose between the two with you being the tiebreaker what do you think the final tally would be??

    What's very good teams in your opinion?? At the very least what's the team rankings on each side of the ball holds at least??

    At one time the steelers had a top 5 wr, top 5 rb ,franchise Qb and very solid def and what did that get them. This team has quit on Tomlin and very often are unprepared. His decision making is very poor and he refuses to change. It's not all Tomlin but he is a big part. The front office has also made terrible decisions from the draft to giving Tomlin a pass for his failures.i would rather lose playing hard then to see what the 2021 steelers have become. It's embarrassing and the fans deserve better. I think change would help. Could you imagine how Heyward feels ,he seems to be the only one that gives a ****. Look I love the steelers and hate to see what's happening and I'm sure you feel the same way. It's the steeler way of not changing but that needs to stop or were back to bubby blister era

    Ben is a F'n statue in that pocket and moves like he weighs 400 lbs. Couple that with a piss poor offensive line and a bunch of mediocre sissy receivers and you have a recipe for disaster.

    You keep whining about having all these players on one side of the ball when it takes a complete squad typically to win a championship. If you were a true Steeler fan you would know for a fact that very rarely were there seasons where the Steelers were solid on both sides of the ball. Free agency typically kills all that so you really have to draft well to supplement people you lose. What you also fail to admit is that in many instances that top 5 WR and top 5 RB were injured by the time the playoffs rolled around. What you've also lied, or misinformed, everyone about is that in your previous post you said this has been the case of underachieving for the last 10 seasons. They only had that top 5 RB/WR/and QB for four seasons...who were the top 5 RBs and Wrs prior and after??

    To further dispel your false statements I'm listing below the rank of the offense and defense under Tomlin up until last year and I want someone to legitimately tell me what season they had this juggernaut or great team(s) that so many of you are delusional about that should have won all these championships you guys keep talking about ((excluding the years they went to a SB and the year they lost to the Jaguars (2017))???:

    Where were these other great teams at???? Once we ask ourselves that we'll move on to the next question which is "Was the team fairly healthy (i.e. no key players missing) when the playoffs rolled around?? and finally compare them to other teams that made the playoffs for the year in question (including the team that went on to win the SB) to see if they had a legitimate shot at winning it all.

    If this is your argument, you have to also explain why the Steelers went nowhere for all the years they had the best QB in the division, best WO in the division, and possibly best RB in the division.

    Glenn, you do realize you are the #1 poster when it comes to responding to my threads, right?

    Granted 75% of your content on this site is "who", "look at me" or "oh no we suck". Maybe you should change your name to GlennBot.

    When Tomlin was asked what he thought of his Defense getting Gouged on the ground every week , he replied " We don't play Football like that "

    Lolololololololol,^^^^^ This is what infuriates me with Tomlin..." We don't play Football like that " But you do! And have, ALL season long!

    When he continually goes in front of the mics, and TRIES to talk tough, when they are the complete opposite of tough...Is why I can't stand this Clowns false Bravado!

    Tomlin would make an excellent politician after he retires from the NFL. He can speak endlessly without saying anything.

    I Am not a tomlin fan but this season was doomed from the start. Aging Qb. Crappy new o line . New oc. D line depth sucks and injuries, no cap space. Three really good teams in same division who have more talent than us, a really tough schedule . That being said. Getting blown out in the nfl is tough and there is no excuse for 40 something points to 10. I said this team has look of bubby brister years and many people said I was overreacting. Who is right now.find one more win in last six games.
