(CBS Sports)   I hope Mike Tomlin thinks that sideline salsa move of his was worth losing a draft pick because that is what the Steelers think is going to happen   ( divider line

eazye1334: slykens1: js34603: //and if you know anything about the Steelers you'd know they aren't going to fire him

I would ask the Rooneys to fire him but the last time I wanted a Steelers coach to be fired we ended up with Todd Haley. I've learned my farking lesson.

And for the record, I've been looking for him to be fired for several years, including before the loss to Green Bay Superb Owl year. He is not head coaching material, and, as bad as it might sound, is the personification of the Rooney Rule.

Really? This shiat again? Tomlin wasn't a Rooney Rule interview. Ron Rivera had already been interviewed. And who did you want them to take? Wisenhunt? He's worked out really well, huh?

FWIW, racists tend not to count Rivera as a whole black person.

digistil: Really? This is really as bad as the Pats and Saints caught cheating for a Superbowl(s)?

Of course it is, the posters are all Ratbird fans and Steelers haters. Nothing worse has ever happened in the history of the NFL.

He should be fined, because whether or not it was intentional it broke the rules. Jones wasn't gone, he was going to be caught, and Tomlin's immediate reaction indicated to me that he wasn't paying attention to where he was and drifted too far. However, that's no excuse, so a fine is coming.

But a draft pick? That's silly. A suspension? That's a joke.

llortcM_yllort: Leader O'Cola: this is not good. it will get most of the Steeler fanbase in an outrage against Goodell instead of focusing on the fact that Tomlin is a clueless clown who has just given more evidence why he needs to get shiatcanned.

He's been coaching for what, 7 or 8 years now, right?  If the Steelers have a losing record this year (which they probably will, but it's not guaranteed), Mike Tomlin will have the same number of Super Bowl wins as losing seasons in his career and he will only have one losing season in a span of 7 or 8 years.  Do you really think that is a resume that should get a coach fired?  If so, it's a good thing the Rooney's don't listen to the fans for personnel decisions or they would look a lot like the team in their division that does (or at least did under old management).

They won that SB in spite of Tomlin.  Now that the cap-hell (and a few unlucky drafts) associated with keeping the "window" open with the core roster has closed, you are seeing exactly what Tomlin is.  A terrible coach who will stoop to any bush-league level to try and win.

llortcM_yllort: Triumph: Mike Tomlin jumps out of the way of various things

Good idea, bad execution.

I like the exploding whale one.

Losing a draft pick is stupid. So probably the option Goodell will go for
