Colbert signed to a 1-year extension through 2021. Glad they got that done. Hopefully they don’t do the same for Tomlin.

MT will be back.
Even though they stumbled down the stretch he will get extended.
Playing with a 4th string QB, the loss of AB, JuJu injury, Conner injury and still finish 8- 8 was a miracle. Most franchises have that happen and they are picking in the top 3.

Season will hinge on how well BR, JuJu and Conner play.
Also with the defense.....they forced a lot of TO's last year which was great. HOWEVER, i had read that over the course of history most teams who have a great season of creating turnovers dont usually see that happen twoyears in a row.

Excuses excuses. The fact of the matter is MT doesn’t bring an once of strategy to the team, he lets the players dictate, and has only 3 playoff wins, one of which was a complete gift, in 8 seasons. It’s time to move on.

While I dont disagree with you, I am just stating the facts from last season.
Most franchises in that situation would give you a Bengal/Brown's type of season......

i wish you could bring us some first hand insight/knowledge of your time spent in meetings/practices during the week preparing for games so you could fill us in with actual facts that back up your opinion of Tomlin not bringing "an ounce of strategy to the team". it would be great to have EVIDENCE that supports this claim, not just monday morning quarterbacking from your recliner after watching the game saying "he should have done this........he should have done that......he doesn't make any changes........etc, etc, etc"

it's just flat out biased and wrong.

and i've stated this 1000 times on here: he's not perfect. no coach is. not even BB. but do you really believe there's someone out there that can do BETTER than him? really? or are you wanting to change just for the sake of change, because you're the typical Steelers fan who's been spoiled his whole life that if we don't make the playoffs or get to the AFC title game or even get to a Super Bowl, that the coach is terrible and has to go? Cowher went through worse 8 year stretches than what Tomlin has and managed to win a Super Bowl AFTER that time. did you want Cowher fired as well? I'm guessing the answer to that is yes. that's the spoiled fan mentality you have. when the coach doesn't live up to whatever standard you have in your mind as being acceptable, you want him gone. that's just not how the NFL works and it's certainly not how the Steelers operate. you want the Steelers to start going into "Browns mode" and fire every coach that doesn't make the playoffs and start over again - well, look at what the state of that franchise is right now. we aren't going down that road just because a few spoiled fans don't like the coach and think he should be fired. those fans (and yes, YOU) are wrong.

we have 2-3 more years with Ben. the offensive skills players are young but talented. get a solid TE in the draft or FA. draft another RB for depth. sign Dupree. draft some OL depth as well. the defense can be and will be better. the offense, with Ben, should be WAY better. i don't know who the QB of the future is but if i had to bet, he isn't on the roster right now, and that's ok.

you can mark this post right now if you want. this team WILL BE in the playoffs next season.
