The Steelers will not throw out the baby with the bath water. They should not and never do. They will make a change I suspect. They need to make a change otherwise we will have the same results next year.

The season was a success. The results; not enough for Steeler Nation.

If you were king for a day and we’re allowed to make one change only, what would it be?

I think I would fire Tomlin if I had to make one change.

We are getting the proper talent; so GM can stay. The OC is quite competent at doing what is probably stated on his contract. Score points; Keep Ben upright; finish as a top offense. Keep Haley.

Butler is suffering a little bit from talent; either players or coaching. I can only fire one, so it is not Butler, but he is on the hot seat.

I think 10 years is enough. I think they, he and PS should go in a different direction for a final push in Ben’s window. Tomlin gets the PS Order of the Cross or whatever. He was a top coach in the league, very successful PS coach, and a great coach by any measure.

The PS need someone to come in that can put a different strategy together. One that emphasizes camouflage and does not limit options with formations. Attacks weaknesses. Has a different take on odds and gut feelings. A coach that doesn’t lose when the O scores 42. Something is missing that puts it all together. We have great instruments. We know how to play great music. We can play great for a movement or two, but we need a better conductor who can put it all together and orchestrate a Super Bowl.

It is obviously not an easy choice. Organizations fail left and right in the league in this endeavor. Someone needs to make a bold, calculated, and thoughtful change to take us to the next level. We need an injection of tactical strategy. Tomlin can go somewhere else and build an organization under his vision. He has the right stuff to take many teams from good to great, but we need someone else.

I think Tomlin is too much Phil Jackson and not enough....Bill Belichick. We don’t suffer from team issues of chemistry which is Tomlin’s strength. I don’t think Tomlin is a tactician and he has not surrounded himself with tacticians either. We need more of that, without losing the chemistry skill too.

So if you fire 1 the other 2 stay? If that's the case, wow, tough call, I cant stand Haley, but I think Ben can overcome him to a certain degree and has..i mean I think both coordinators are trash...I think it might be butler for me, the guy has really done nada with a lot of top picks going to his side.


After further review, I fire Tomlin.

Torn but would have to go Haley although Butler is a close second. I could also say Tomlin has to go but the question becomes who do we replace him with?

Haley is a very successful OC by any measure. For some reason we just don’t deploy the offense properly and I think that is HC. Any HC should have vetoed the opening script today.

Who do you replace him with is the big question? That is why Rooney and KC get paid the big bucks.

Replace tomlin with the trashcan man from the stand, it would be an improvement

Is there someone in charge of situational playmaking?

Just don’t understand how you don’t replicate the same gameplay as Buffalo.

42 points and a loss. Still shaking my head.

You fire Tomlin’s dumb fucking ass because another HC would have the balls to dismiss his incompetent coordinators.

I don’t give a fuck if it’s not the Steeler way. Our situation sucks because we will always be there but never win anything meaningful.
