Carnell Lake releases a statement that says he's leaving the Steelers to spend time with his family. Had been on Tomlin's staff since 2011.

Quote:
I have decided to return to California to be able to be a part of my youngest son’s last year of high school football.

I want to thank Mr. Art Rooney II and the Rooney family, Coach Mike Tomlin, Kevin Colbert, the coaching staffs I have worked with throughout my time in Pittsburgh, and the entire Steelers organization. It has been a privilege and honor to play and coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers. I also want to thank all of the players I have coached during my seven years with the team – it truly was an honor to work with them. Finally, I would like to thank Steelers fans for their support and for being the best fans in the NFL during both my time as a player and coach.

Yep.

Lake decided this on his own.

No way in fucking hell Tomlin "urged" him to move on.

Right?

Right?

Maybe Art II “suggested it” to Mike Tomlin the way Dan suggested it to Chuck Noll back in the day...

Steelers do like to make exits look voluntary.

Good.

The amount of explosive plays given up by the secondary in the past three seasons has been unacceptable.

Exactly

We used to “keep them in front of you” and make the tackle.

Now they go zipping by or break multiple ghost-like attempts at tackles

How many times has Mitchell had a chance to prevent the TD but overrun the receiver, whiffed or just flat out fell?

Good. Now we need a giant infusion of talent and depth on this defense. Is that possible?

Could you structure this question in a multiple choice format?

This is good if Tomlin/Colbert/Rooney seek the best available coach to replace him.

It's bad if they practice the nepotism they displayed in hiring Blaine Stewart.

Note- Stewart may turn out to be great...I know nothing about him...maybe he's just the detail-oriented guy to be a good quality control coach.

But all I really know about him was that Tomlin knew his dad- which shouldn't even be a factor.

Currently available DB coach.

Would he be a good coach?

Why in the eff must it be a former Steeler? Hell's bells. And Lake has not done a great job.

The Raiders and Steelers had almost identical number of big plays allowed in 2017:

Raiders: 59 over 20, 16 over 40
Steelers: 58 over 20, 16 over 40

Any idea how much money Lake made/stole from the Steelers?

So the "Lake Effect" never really materialized.

At one point people here thought it was a great idea to hire Lake, and went on to espouse how much of a turn around the secondary had. Thus, the mythical "Lake Effect" was created.

I guess it was all smoke and mirrors?

I bet he could still be a better safety than Mike Mitchell.

Burns and Davis really regressed their sophomore years. Unsure how much influence Lake had...

Good point.

Team should just have kept Carnell 'explosive play' Lake.

I hope they bring in someone with a record of developing young players. Being an ex-Steeler does not demonstrate that you can develop talent.

It wasn't the scheme or playcalling or top-level choices as much as jimmie & joes + fundamentals and player development.

The HC is involved in all of that, but position coaches have a big impact in those areas.
