There are a lot of NFL teams that would love to have the Steelers' results over the last decade plus.

We've gotten a taste of what he could do without Big Ben.  Now let's get him a real QB to see if he can go 20-0.

I'm not sure that is the best way to define success in a professional sport.  They haven't won a championship since his 2nd or 3rd year coaching.

Counterpoint: the Detroit Lions havent won a championship since 1957 and havent even won a playoff game since 1991.

I think you need to adjust your bar just a smidge...

And the Lions have had 5 or 6 head coaches while Tomlin has been at Pittsburgh.  Pittsburgh is a storied, generally well run franchise but they haven't won a championship under Tomlin in 12 or so years.  I wonder if part of the decision is the mystique of having had so few head coaches?

I'd imagine the decision came down to having the second-best win-loss record among head coaches since he took over.

Were it not for the Patriots' dominance this conversation wouldn't even be happening.
 
2021-04-20 5:00:36 PM  
He's a Hall-of-Fame coach who's still relatively young. They'd be crazy to let him go at this point.

I like the "Well, he hasn't won a championship in awhile" argument for getting rid of him. Who would you rather have, Doug Peterson or Mike Tomlin? No one seems to be calling for Sean Payton's head in NO (that I'm aware of)

145-78-1 regular season record. Never had losing record.
Made playoffs 9 out of 14 years.
8-8 playoff record, including SB win and AFC championship.

Actually (assuming you want to win a SB - which you disagree with apparently) continuing to hire someone who hasn't been able to win in 13 years was the point.  It was meant to be humorous but I forget there are fans like you

Brady and Belichick went 10 years between Super Bowls at one point, and were only saved by the worst playcall in Super Bowl history. Saying "the guy who wins a lot hasn't won a Super Bowl in a long time" is literally the worst argument for getting rid of him

You apparently view those results as "insanity" and failure, prompting my statement that you need to adjust your expectations a smidge.

I barely consider myself a Detroit Lions fan, and I'd go streaking down Woodward Ave bare assed nekkid if the Lions put up the Steelers results over the last 14 seasons.

9 trips to the playoffs. 7 of his 8 wins happened in 3 of those trips. 1 win in his other 6 times. That's not exactly great. Schottenheimer Syndrome.

Bill Cowher didn't win the Super Bowl until his 14th season.  What's your point?

Here's the breakdown:

Cowher:
1-1 in Super Bowl
15 seasons
12-9 postseason record
10 postseasons, 8 division crowns
3 losing seasons
149 wins.

Tomlin:
1-1 in Super Bowl
14 Seasons
8-8 Postseason record
9 postseasons, 7 division crowns.
0 losing seasons
145 wins.

I don't know about you, but that's as close as you can possibly get with 2 different head coaches.   Cowher just got inducted into the hall of fame as a coach.  People want Tomlin's head on a pike.

I wonder what the difference could be?  Hmm.  I think we all know the answer to that.

Here's another one for ya.

Compare it to a coach not even from the Steelers.

Sean Payton.  Also had, for that entire time, a hall of fame QB.  Probably the greatest QB of all time not named Brady.

Here's his numbers:
1-0 in the Super Bowl, also hasn't won in 12 years.
13 seasons
9-8 postseason record
9 postseasons, 7 division crowns
4 losing seasons
143 wins.

Again, almost EXACTLY the same.  I've not heard of a whisper of a breath of people calling for Sean Payton to be fired.

Again, we all know why.

This is a more fair comparison, but I don't know if NO fans want Payton fired or not. If not it could also just be because he's the only coach to win a Super Bowl in however many years the Saints have existed

I mean, he's been better than Bill Cowher, but this Bill Downer I never heard of so you could be right


Autocorrect right when I woke up this morning. I meant Cowher but dammit I hate Autocorrect.

Well then you're wrong (what else is new) because he's been better than Bill Cowher

jake3988: Here's the breakdown:

Cowher:
1-1 in Super Bowl
15 seasons
12-9 postseason record
10 postseasons, 8 division crowns
3 losing seasons
149 wins.

Tomlin:
1-1 in Super Bowl
14 Seasons
8-8 Postseason record
9 postseasons, 7 division crowns.
0 losing seasons
145 wins.

I don't know about you, but that's as close as you can possibly get with 2 different head coaches.   Cowher just got inducted into the hall of fame as a coach.  People want Tomlin's head on a pike.

I wonder what the difference could be?  Hmm.  I think we all know the answer to that.


Yes, it's Tomlin's continual playing down to opponents despite overwhelming talent and failing to keep the bigger shoes of the team in check.

What, were you going to be an asshole and play the race card?  That's cute.  So very cute.

I meant egos, but the autocorrect chose shoes.
