Tomlin spoke highly of Stewart.

“There’s really been a unique relationship after coach Stew’s passing. We’re friends for life and I mean it in that way. Blaine is an impressive young man. He’s mature beyond his years.”

And captured at the end of the video, Tomlin once told Pacman Jones, “I’m going to take care of that young man,” referring to Blaine.

Is this the son of the Bill Stewart that was the HC at WVU for a couple years?


According to the linked article, yes.

Yet another example of what Tomlin is all about. I'm not saying it doesn't effect folks in some positive manner, but is it ALWAYS in the best interest of the Steelers being better and winning a championship? That's the problem. Tomlin thinks a very large part of his job is to look out for young men, help them become better people and guide them to become productive grown men in society. Unfortunately, that mission doesn't always ensure or coincide with you having the absolute best football players (especially), coaches and staff members available for the main, dare I say ONLY, job at hand - winning championships! While those two things aren't mutually exclusive, rarely do they accomplish the stated goal of winning!

Would Belicheat hire a kid just because (or mainly) his dad gave him his first coaching opportunity? I seriously doubt it. And, more importantly, BB wouldn't do it throughout groups that fall under his power. BB is going to hire the guy that is BEST qualified to teach/run/produce/accomplish the mission at hand - winning championships and all things that lead to that single mission.

BB hired his own kids...just saying.

Yes. Probably biggest play of the game. 2nd and 1 near midfield vs. 1st and 20. After appx 6 successful runs in a row.


My memory of that drive is pretty bad. maybe it's anti recency bias. Steelers actually threw a few times and there were a couple unsuccessful runs too.

on 1st and 10 from Steelers 38 Connor runs for 8 yards to the 46. Holding call on Villy turns it into 2 and 20 on the Steelers 28 (that part i had mostly right). Villy then gets a false start on the 2nd and 18 play. Turtling ensues.

I would have really liked our chances with 2nd and 2 on the 46 with an 8 point lead

Thanks Lit. A good friend of mine did some work on the home Coach Stewart built in Morgantown. He said he was the most positive, pleasant person he’s ever worked for.

Yes, I know, and probably proves my point even more. My guess is BB's son might be the best qualified person to run whatever job he was hired for, as he was taught exclusively by BB. Just sayin....

“6 successful runs” means precisely squat.

ZERO POINTS (without the benefit of a very short field) by employing a heavy set run first mentality is the more important stat from that game.

Tomlin started the turtle in the 2nd half. That's when the game began to turn.

You cannot "BLEED CLOCK" vs the Pats in the 1st 2nd or 3rd quarters- you have to score points.

The only time you should be concerned about the time is when you have the ball with about 4 mins left and you need 2 first downs to essentially ice the game and end the contest WITH POSSESSION OF THE BALL


I would argue that running right at the Pats on the drive in question was the optimal way to score points. Which is why the holding call was so devastating.


Your argument does not stand up to the FACTS of the game.

Would Butler ever think to do that with Dupree (6'4" 265) in the same situation.


And would Dupree go all out or take that play off?


Dupree isn't capable of making the Graham play period. That would take great hand technique and the ability to move laterally. Dupree sucks at both those areas. Badly.

We better hope either we land a great OLB free agent or that Keion Adams is some sort of revelation because our D can't take another year of Dupree being bitch slapped by a TE like this...

Franco you talking crazy talk man. Dupree had, what 5 sacks this year on inside stunts/rips where he beat a guy on the inside? He totally has the lateral quickness and mostly what won for Graham was getting underneath and an angle under the pads, then pursuing to ball instead of to QB target area. We even use him just like people in this thread are suggesting we do.

Before you all go jumping on the Dupree hate willy-nilly, you might at least watch the film and use the MANY legit reasons to criticize his game instead of inventing things to fit the narrative.
