they feel exactly how we feel about Marvin Lewis....uncanny

Quote:
No...
He should stay there as long as possible. I don't want any chance of them getting a better coach. He's perfect. He is one who gives them hope every year, but cannot finish the job. That makes PIT a perfect foe for the Pats.

um, this guy is out to lunch
Quote:
He's viewed about as highly in Pgh as BB is here. Not a chance he's being fired...yeah!


this person gets it
Quote:
I said during the game he should be fired
His teams play down to the competition
He doesn't get them ready to play
Bradsha said he was a Cheerleader
Big Ben has ripped him , but hey he puts everyone under the bus

Our friends that moved from ESPN to FXsports1
Said it would be coz of his race , no white would be fired

Hmm - Coughlin - Giants 2SBs, Gruden Tampa Bay with 1 SB
and then Shottenhiemer 14-2

and Not fired
Hue Jackson 1-31
Marvin Lewis and his dysfunctional mess

Please - Am not trying to turn this into a political discussion
just an observation on what they said
And how things are put through anyone's
Politically Correct prism , which yields sub optimal results


And the winner, what we all know and accept now
Quote:
I hope they never fire his guy because it doesn't matter how much talent he has to work with, he'll always screw it up.


Quote:
Minority Steeler Owners' want him fired.

do you think he should be?




No. Every coach in the AFC is going to look worse than they actually are because of Belichick. At the end of the day Tomlin stacks up pretty well to the rest of the league in regular season and playoff wins since he has been coach. It's not like his QB has been the paragon of health either. It's true that his teams often lose games they shouldn't by playing down to their level of competition. It's also true that the Steelers have a pretty good front office so the cupboard is never empty, but I think people acting like if Tomlin was replaced that the Steelers would have a few more Lombardis are kidding themselves. He's not Belichick, but no one is. The guy has won double digit games in 4 consecutive seasons and Hue Jackson is still a head coach. The idea that his seat is hot is pretty silly imo even if I think Tomlin totally f'ed up the Jax game.


Quote:
All of your points are solid

I had questions about him after he stuck his foot to drop a K returner
He doesn't button up his player and get them focussed
And he leads that by example

Big Ben has tossed Tomlin under the bus about 7 times
Seems he lost his qb, if not a lot of the team
And what do I know? Just looks funny
But those minority owners are reacting to somethng

He took forever to get out of his zone with TB

Year in and year out there have been mostly the same teams going for the SB
And his record isn't any good with them

So keep him, win a lot but never the big game?

I will leave it at this
Patriot fans dont want him fired


Quote:
He's an awful coach. Absolutely terrible. He's nothing but a glorified cheerleader. He won 2 titles with cowhers players. He should've been fired years ago. But please Pittsburgh stay stupid and keep him. As long as he's the coach, we'll never have to worry about them beating us.

Except that the decision he made was supported by the percentages, and he was crucified.

What you guys are ignoring is that most of the time you fail on an onside attempt, the offense still needs a 1st down to get into FG range. So you have the small chance of getting an onside recover, plus the chance of stopping them on a set of downs and getting the ball back, albeit with maybe 10-15 yds worse field position. This vs. kicking away with no chance to recover, getting a stop, and getting the ball back with 10-15 yds better FP.

I'll bet you the failed onside with touching penalty 5 yards past the kick line is about the worst-possible outcome you could even imagine... and very very unlikely–yet you guys are basing your probabilities on that outcome.


Yes, worst possible outcome, but I think you're underestimating the difference in Steelers FP had they kicked deep vs. onsides. With onsides, if not recovered, we might expect Jax to take possession no worse than 50 yd. line. Had Steelers kicked deep, Jax likely comes out no better than their own 25, quite possibly deeper than that.

I think the FP difference is at least 25 yards, and let's remember, Steelers would have been needing a touchdown to tie, not a field goal.

Tomlin fucked up the decision....that simple.

One could argue that reversion to the mean would make it likely the Steelers will convert an onside sometime soon, just from sheer luck.

Besides, steelers got the same number of onside kick recoveries in that game as they did 3 and outs to force a punt.

There's no way Marrone is attempting a 54 or 55 yard FG in January with the game on the line. Kudos to him if he did, but that's a low percentage play. In fact, our chances might have been better to have onsided, missed recovering with an average result, and forced a 55 yard FG attempt than they would have to kicked off through the EZ, and forced a punt.

Not a game of rolling dice though, B2B.....reversion to mean doesn't matter. Every event is unique unto itself with execution being a prime variable.

Agreed....no way Marrone attempts a 55 yard FG, so let's not even pretend that Steelers fuck up the onsides and come out with better field position than if they had kicked deep.

I think theres a really good chance Jax goes ultra simple conservative mode deep in their own end thus increasing our chances of getting that much needed 3 and out, not to mention its 3 attempts at trying to create a turnover, no chance of an onsides penalty as well, throw all that into the computer model as well.

In this thread the discussion about playing the odds only works when you state what your philosophy is and stick to it. If MT would make a declaration that I am using statistical models and probability charts at all times than I would be fine with the onsides kick.

However, there has been no declaration of philosophy, which is a mistake in the communication and optics game, which MT prides himself with. There is just going by his gut, shifting philosophies, and flavors of the month.

I work in supply chain and deal deeply with safety stock, statistics, risk periods everyday on all inventory. You can’t turn the software on and off when you feel like it and then bitch and moan when you have service issues and out of stocks. You have to buy into the philosophy and software and use 100% of the time. It is the same with his and his coordinators decision making skills. They have no philosophy, no principles, and no rules on which to communicate internally to the team or externally to the press and fans. This is a recipe for what transpired in the Jax playoff game of 2018!

except that you can't easily kick it to the 1 or 2-- you're going to pooch from the the 40 and it's probably going to be fair caught at the 10 or so... might even go in for a touchback. It isn't the FP difference before the punt that matters, it's the FP after the punt.

Mike Tomlin doesn't use software, he is just soft!!

He has no idea of transient safety stocks, although Butler may at times. Tomlin and crew have no real perceived planning time fence, it's just a swag :lol: 8-)
